"I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I’ve known
But you rescued me from reachin’ for the bottom
And brought me back from being too far gone"
- Chris Stapleton

GOOD MORNING, FAYETTENAM. The Aggie dude hoopsters dropped a choppy, sloppy game to Arkansas last night. We knew this one had all the makings of a trap game. Huge home game looming (Iowa State). Tough road environment. Desperate opponent. The Ags were done no favors by an officiating crew hell bent on being more present than a Walmart greeter on trucker speed. College basketball really doesn't need this shit. The sport is already trying to create more offense and flow with rule changes. Derailments from prima donna officials do the sport no favors. Moving on. We're in league play. These nights happen. Time to regroup and refocus because the white hot Cyclones come to Reed on Saturday.

ANOTHER WORD ON LAST NIGHT. Vegas knows. They always know. As of Wednesday morning, the Ags were only a three point favorite over the Hogs. Over 90% of the public's bets were coming in on the Ags. TRAP TRAP TRAP. My point is, you're Aggies. Stick to your safe, stable engineering jobs. Remain risk averse. Save your money. Live in Cypress or Plano. Wear your cell phone on your belt. I'll continue writing for GBH and getting a rush from rolling bones on 18-22 year old athletes. NOTE: I did NOT wager on last night's game. Because it's illegal...

FOOTBAW BREAKOUT. Our man Wheels over at the Dallas Morning News takes a look at what players we can expect to have breakout seasons in 2016. I'm excited to see what shakes out with Daylon Mack after another year with Chavis and a college strength program.

THIS IS A WAFFLE HOUSE WEBSITE, BUT... when you're feeling FANCY on the road, get yer ass to a Cracker Barrel, honky. Cracker Barrel is a damn delight and a nice place to take the dame if she's tired of Waffle House (grounds for breakup/divorce imho). Here, read this nice NYT piece on good ol' Cracker B.

WHAT'S IN A NAME. It's 2016, so the world is flush with dickhead Millenials with names like Jaydyn, Annystyn, Tanner, and sKyler. All thanks to the narcissistic dolts that named them. At the SB Nation mothership, they've gathered the best 2016 recruits' names. This is a CELEBRATION. My favorites:

  • Lil'Jordan Humphrey
  • Darbbeon Profit Jr.
  • Dock Luckie
  • Crisjohn Roscoe
  • Dakota Cru Birdyshaw
  • Jango Glackin
  • Dude Donaldson.... DUDE DONALDSON
  • Ralphlauren McCauley. (Ole Miss bros buy their Ralph Lauren at TJ Max)

Have a helluva Thursday, you guys.
