One more tune-up game

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Last week was not our standard. We can admit that right? Despite the number of points that we put up (in only having the ball for 17 or so minutes) and despite holding Rice to less than 10, last week was not our standard.

Said it over and over again. Doesn't make a damn bit of difference who we're playing. #POFG means playing to our standard every single week. Do so and we'll never lose a game. Ever.

SMU Ponies are next. And I don't care how bad they are. I want to annihilate them. I want to embarrass them. I want June Jones to feel so bad about this loss that he resigns again. I WANT TO DESTROY THE PONIES.

I WANT BLOOD. PONY BLOOD. DON'T TELL PETA.

This is the last tune up game we have before conference starts and it's time for us to get our sh*t together and PUT FEAR INTO THE HEART OF EVERY FUTURE TEAM ON OUR SCHEDULE. I WANT THEM TO LOOK AT THE SCORE OF THIS GAME AND SAY "DEAR MOTHER OF GOD THEY WERE ALREADY DEAD YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THAT TO THEM". SOME MIGHT EVEN SAY THAT WE ARE GOING TO BEAT A DEAD HORSE. I'M PROBABLY NOT IN THAT CATEGORY BUT I CAN IMAGINE SOME SAYING THAT.

This is that game.

It deserves a special song.

If this song doesn't fire you up, then you're dead. If this song doesn't get you motivated to run something the hell over, then I don't know what to tell you. IF THIS SONG ISN'T EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED AT THIS POINT IN YOUR LIFE THEN YOU NEED TO EVALUATE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOUR PRIORITIES.

are you ready

ARE YOU READY

LET'S GO. HIT PLAY

WHAT. UHH.

RIDE IT. MY PONY.

GET IT.

IF YOU KNOW HOW, STAND UP IN YOUR OFFICE AND START DOING THE BUTTERFLY. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS, IT'S A LATE 90S DANCE THAT HAPPENED RIGHT AROUND THE TIME OF THIS SONG. HERE'S A GIF.

KENNY'S JUST A BACHELOR. RICKY'S LOOKING FOR A PARTNER.

THEIR SADDLE. IS WAITING. MYLES GARRETT. JUMP ON IT.

LET'S GO. IT'S TIME TO RIDE THE DAMN PONIES INTO THE GROUND. IT'S TIME TO BURN DOWN THE STABLES. IT'S TIME TO STOP BEING A NEIGH SAYER ABOUT LAST WEEK. IT'S TIME TO STIRRUP YOUR EMOTIONS AND REALIZE THAT YOU AS A FAN ARE NOT PASTURE PRIME.

HARNESS YOUR EMOTIONS AND RECOGNIZE THAT WHILE YOU CANTER RACE THE MEMORIES OF THE RICE GAME, WE CAN ENSURE THAT THIS GAME IS A NIGHTMARE FOR THE PONIES OF SMU.

I'M NOT SORRY AT ALL. NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST BIT.

FIRE THE HELL UP AND LET'S BEAT THE ABSOLUTE HELL OUT OF SMU. 4-0 FOLKS. 4 AND MF'ING 0. THAT'S THE GOAL.
