"As has been said, second place is just the first loser. Who cares. Therre will be no banner raising above some stadium for the 2nd place team in the country next year, no fashionable rings, nothing."

I came across this post that I had saved from a while back (SIAPOAB) and forgive me if I think this deserves to be reposted from time to time:

I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for scadaman, and you curse posters like me. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That scada getting pwned, while tragic, probably saved all of you the trouble it would take to weed through his b*llshit. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves you time. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at tailgates, you want me on this board, you need me on this board. I use words like TTIWWOP, rick roll, and Georgia. I use these words as the backbone of a life spent posting on this site. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who posts under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a keyboard, and start Googling. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
At the same time, Texas pretty much stuck with its base defense during its first two ballgames, and yielded big plays to a couple of woeful programs. The lapses can be attributed to the absence of former safety Blake Gideon, according to a source with longstanding ties within the UT Men’s Athletic Department. Said our source, "A lot of fans liked to hate on Gideon, but the primary reason he started every game of his career was he was a coach-on-the-field. Fans have no idea how much time Gideon spent telling other guys where to line up. (Former All-American) Earl Thomas should have given Gideon half his (Seattle Seahawk) signing bonus. A lot of times, especially in 2010, Gideon looked like he got beat because he tried to compensate for other guys’ busted assignments by trying to be in two places at once. Same time, there were a lot of times where Gideon just got beat. He probably was the least-athletic guy on the defense, but he was one of the toughest and one of the smartest."
Oh btw I'm not a hot head either. I'm a friendly ass dude, but when I put on my helmet I'm relentless. I don't care about your feelings.
Cameron Ridley, 6-10 center, will sign with #Longhorns at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, per Bush High coach Ronnie Courtney
He has a good ball. If he got as many reps (as the quarterbacks), he'd probably be just as good.
