ITS GO TIME

NCAA Football: TaxSlayer Gator Bowl-Texas A&M vs North Carolina State Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

HELLO

I HAD A REALIZATION THE OTHER DAY. I STARTED WRITING THESE ALL CAPS PREVIEWS WHEN I WAS 33 YEARS OLD. IT WAS MANZIEL’S SECOND SEASON AND I WAS FILLED WITH HOPE AND VITALITY THAT ONY YOUTH AND ONLY HAVING TWO CHILDREN COULD BRING.

IM NOW DAMN NEAR 40 AND IM NOT GONNA LIE YALL. IM TIRED. DAMN TIRED. MY CAPACITY FOR HYPEDNESS IS LOW.

BUT DADGUM IF THIS OPENING GAME ISNT REMINDING ME OF MY YOUTHFUL DAYS AND MAKING ME WANT TO WRITE A THREE PAGE ESSAY ON HOW HEADLINES BY DRAKE IS ACTUALLY ABOUT MANZIEL’S LIFE.

AND THEN I SEE THIS.

AND I SEE MADUBUIKE REFERENCING PISSED OFF FOR GREATNESS.

FOR THOSE WHO ARENT FAMILIAR WATCH THIS DAMN VIDEO.

AND I GET A SMALL WISTFUL SMILE ON MY FACE

AND THEN THE CORNERS OF MY MOUTH TURN DOWNWARDS AND I AM LEFT WITH AN ANGRY OLD MAN SCOWL. AND MY HEART RATE RISES. AND I REALIZE THAT IT’S FOOTBALL SEASON IN AGGIELAND. IT’S TIME FOR PAIN. BOTH PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL. AND THAT’S NOT EVEN TALKING ABOUT THE PLAYERS, THAT’S JUST TALKING ABOUT ME.

I KNOW THE DADGUM SCHEDULE IS HARD. BUT WHO CARES. WE WANT THE DAMN SCHEDULE TO BE HARD. I WANT TO PLAY ALL THE BEST TEAMS IN THE COUNTRY. AS THE CHILDREN SAY I WANT ALL THAT SMOKE.

MADUBUIKE IS PISSED OFF FOR GREATNESS. I AM TOO. AND YOU SHOULD BE AS WELL.

WE EXORCISED A LOT OF DEMONS LAST YEAR. TOOK BACK KYLE FIELD. FINISHED GAMES. BEAT THE TIGAHS IN A MARATHON FINISH THAT IM STILL RECOVERING FROM. WON A BOWL GAME.

LAST YEAR IS OVER. THIS YEAR IS ALL THAT MATTERS. AND WHAT MATTERS IS THAT WE ARE BIGGER STRONGER FASTER AND MENTALLY TOUGHER THAN WE’VE EVER BEEN. THIS TEAM IS BUILT TO TAKE ON THIS SCHEDULE. AND WE AS FANS NEED TO DO THE EXACT SAME THING.

FOOTBALL IS FUN. FOOTBALL IS PAINFUL. FOOTBALL IS STRESSFUL. FOOTBALL IS TO BE ENDURED. FOOTBALL IS FOR OPTIMISTS.

AND IT’S FOOTBALL TIME.

SO GET YOUR MIND RIGHT. GET YOUR HEART READY. YOUR FIGHTIN TEXAS AGGIE FOOTBALL TEAM IS ABOUT TO POUR BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS ON TO KYLE FIELD IN THE PURSUIT OF GREATNESS.

SO GET PISSED OFF FOR GREATNESS. BECAUSE IT’S WITHIN OUR GRASP THIS SEASON. AND I DONT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I AM DAMN CONFIDENT ABOUT OUR ABILITY TO GET THERE. ALL STARTS WITH THE FIRST STEP.

ALL STARTS THIS THURSDAY.

ALL STARTS BY BEATING THE EVERLIVING
