"Omaha, somewhere in middle America
Get right to the heart of matters.
It's the heart that matters more.
I think you better turn your ticket in
And get your money back at the door."

SUPES! Oh, gang. GAME DAY. It's time for blood. It's time to beat the ever living hell outta these silver spoon, girls' school dandies who were too dim to get into UT. This year, it's in OUR house. I want it to be hell for the Frogs. Run their asses out on a rail SATURDAY night. Omaha or bust. We'll have plenty of coverage, analysis, and deets for you here at GBH - fo' free.

FOOTBAW CAN YOU SNIFF IT? It's coming. It really is. If we can endure some Biblical rain, hurricanes, media dickheads, and inhumane heat the next couple months, we'll be basking in football. Coach addressed the Brazos Valley A&M Club last night and a couple quotes stick out:

"A lot of people don’t think we’re very good," said Sumlin. "A lot of people think this organization is in disarray, but it’s far from it. As a matter of fact, it’s in pretty good shape. And I like where we are, and I like our attitude. And I like the fact people don’t think we’re worth a damn. That’s all right with me. We’re going to be all right."

I'm detecting some of that old Sumlin swagger. The swagger we got at 2012 Media Days. If this staff can coach around some concerning deficiencies, the Ags could make some noise in 2016. I, for one, am amped about this team that has purged a lot of bullshit from its locker room.

STAPLES DOESN'T LIKE YOUR HOT SEAT. Friend of the blog, Andy Staples, opined on the notion of Coach Sumlin being on the hot seat. He's not alone, as there are a trio of very dang good SEC West coaches feeling the warmth.

The SEC West: the Predator of divisions.
