Do you remember?— Earth, Wind & Fire (@EarthWindFire) September 1, 2016
IT’S REALLY HERE, Y’ALL. Like most things Australian, Cal and Hawaii didn’t actually count last week. Today is the beginning of September, college ball starts tonight, and I am JACKED.
Never mind that Texas has nothing that even faintly resembles a traditional autumn. That 95 degrees today will FEEL crisper just because college football is being played. I am a naturally ornery person, so I like to reset each day with a little gratitude.
Do you remember what we had to wade through between Alabama vs. Clemson and NOW? Humans live-tweeting baseball games. I had to pretend to care about the Olympics lest I be viewed as a turncoat. And when the HELL did soccer become a year-round sport? Moreover, who are the grown adults with the flexibility in their schedules to watch these matches in the middle of a Wednesday while sipping overpriced beer from a stemmed glass while having the gall to live-tweet a sport with less action than a Mormon spring break in Mecca.
Point is - we’re finally back. The best sport on God’s green earth is back to distract you from your families and crucial life responsibilities. For that, I’m forever grateful. Now, YOUR GAMES 2NITE PEWPEWPEWPEW:

Sure, it’s not nearly as good as Saturday’s lineup. In fact, it’s kind of paltry. Need to spice things up? I recommend gambling. More specifically, wager an amount that induces a little bit of nausea when the ball kicks off.
HEY, THE ‘PPONENT SCOUTED US. Our SB Nation brother site, Bruins Report, took the time to scout out A&M. And we here at GBH have the #INDUSTRY access, insight, and courage to link back to their scouting report.
HERE’S WHAT AGS NEED TO KNOW I GUESS. The Dallas Morning
Content Farm News outlines the five key things A&M fans need to know before this weekend’s game. SPOILER: Josh Rosen is really good! And maybe a Democrat! EEEK.
GET TO KNOW T. KNIGHT. CBS sat down with Trevor Knight to talk whatever. “Well aw shucks just blessed to be a part of this university and this team yes sir it’s a privilege to talk to you hardworking honest journalists no sir never a splash of that satan juice vodka in my sweet tea no sir.”
He’s a really good guy. Let’s hope he can play QB in the SEC West.
It’s time for college football. I hope you love it.
