We're tardy and make no apologies

SORRY NOT SORRY. We were scrambling around this morning putting the final touches on THE TAILGATE (which you should definitely read BTW if you haven't already) so here's your late-ass DB. Just a few things:

1. PLAYOFFS RANKINGS. Oh yes you had better believe that Clemson is #1, no pressure at all this week Dabo, nope, we're not gonna say the word but it rhymes with a vastly popular long-running animated series on FOX and we're not talking about Gus Johnson's booth antics. Enjoy the playoff analysis the way it was meant to be enjoyed: with a liberal dosing of Corgi pictures.

2. TEXAS HOF IS BEST HOF. Former Aggie defensive standout Jacob Green will be inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in February. Green was a terror on the old Wrecking Crews of the late '70s. He was an All-American TWICE and once notched 22 tackles and 4 sacks against Baylor and after the game he ate a raw brisket washed down with moonshine and drove off in his custom diesel half-track because those were simpler and wilder times. Congrats, JG.

3. TIEM TO PANIC THERE ARE UNSOLD TICKETS. As the kind patrons of Facebook pointed out, there are apparently thousands of unsold tickets remaining for Saturday's game, so be sure to prepare for the apocalypse accordingly and ignore the fact that not everyone has picked up their tickets that's not important. We are sorry for continuing with our normal routine and sharing THE TAILGATE with your paranoid insulated community in an attempt to bring a bit of levity and good spirit to the drudgery of the work week. We forgot that life is binary and that one cannot enjoy the frills and trappings of college football until every last ticket is sold and on the ledgers. But we won't promise that it won't happen again. We love you, Facebook.

Have a great Wednesday.
