15 ways to get through the last 50 days of offseason

New, comments

We'll get through this together.

There are only 50 days until Texas A&M beats the hell outta South Carolina on the SEC Network. Only 50, long, arduous, soul-crushing days. If you're struggling with how to get through the time between now and football season, we offer up a few suggestions.

  1. Buy season tickets
    Based on the availability, some of you out there have not yet purchased yours for 2014. For six home games, $350 is quite the steal.

  2. SEC Media Days
    This annual gathering is the most concentrated dose of football-related content we'll get before the season starts. A&M just announced which Aggie players will be making the trip. Oh, and Good Bull Hunting is invited!

  3. Drop DirecTV
    The sultans of satellite are the last remaining holdouts to not carry the SEC Network. Sure, they might strike a last-minute deal, but why risk it. If you need help switching, we've got ya covered.

  4. Drink
    Obviously you'll do plenty of this during the season, but start building your tolerance now. Players are in the weight room training like crazy right now. You should be doing the same.

  5. Do chores
    It sounds ridiculous, but getting household duties out of the way now can save you valuable time on gamedays this fall. And if you're married, why not build up some goodwill before sitting on your ass for the next four months?

  6. Update your Twitter follows
    Twitter is one of the best ways to keep up with Aggie football (other than GBH, of course). So make sure you're following the right people to stay up to date on the Ags.

  7. Obsess over Kyle Field construction
    We've marveled at the progress they've made over the past few months. We've also micro-managed and questioned every minute detail. You can see them add the final few touches on the Kyle Field construction cams.

  8. Obsess over minute uniform details
    Our uniforms seem to be staying the same, but that doesn't mean we can't think about polos, cleats and travel shoes. Or maybe that's just me.

  9. Put together some desktop player cutouts
    Some of these players no longer wear maroon and white on the field, but that doesn't mean they can't wear it on your desk. Get out the scissors and tape and get your workspace ready for football season.

  10. Watch nerdy TV shows and movies
    I promise we'll be a lot funnier if you get our obscure references from Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc.

  11. Visit the nearest Waffle House
    Because #WafflesForAgs.

  12. Upgrade your wardrobe
    Let's be honest, you looked awful last season. GBH has gameday fashion guides for men and women, and I hear Aggieland Outfitters has a few A&M-related clothing items you might be interested in.

  13. Bevel Up
    Jason Cook has made it clear that the bevel is here to stay, so get on board. Bevel everything. Your wardrobe, your house, your dog, your eyebrows. If it isn't beveled it looks disheveled.

  14. Become a Browns fan
    If you're an Aggie who follows the NFL, you are most likely a Cowboys or Texans fan. They both sucked last year. Time to get in on the ground floor of the Johnny Manziel era in Cleveland. Plus, orange and brown is a great color combination that looks great on everyone.

  15. Read Good Bull Hunting
    Did you really think you'd get out of this without one last shameless plug? Also, be sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram and do whatever people do on Pinterest.
