The Suspension is Killing me:

So that happened. Against BYU. Again. I thought Mormons were supposed to be nice. Must be all that pent up...rage. We knew that we were in for an uphill climb this year with Ash and a jerry-rigged O...and we don't even have that anymore. Truly, this is the darkest timeline.

There's no point in looking back. Not here anyway. This was our BYU bump. I'm sure the next guys will be much easier. #12 UCLA? Oh boy.

We head into Dallas for what's bound to be...

Ok look. Sure, the ‘Priz has missed his share of practices this past month. The guy just had a baby (congratulations, btw). He's got a lot of talent, and we could certainly use the offensive firepower.

Oh well. Next man up. This column doesn't rebuild. We reload.

Well shitcakes.

FINE. Don't care. Don't need him. If he's not willing to follow team rules we are better off without that pixel-pushing cancer. I know for a fact he lives spitting distance from UCLA. Enjoy your Santa Monica sunshine, traitor!!1!

How much work can a couple of stupid Gifs be anyway? I can drop cats on things. I know the "memes."

Where were we?

It's a good thing Taysom Hill is the only Heisman-caliber, dual-threat QB we'll be facing this season. (Oh...Hundley and Petty are both on the shortlist? And Trevor Knight looks like a crimson Eric Crouch?)

Well at least he's the only one that is bigger than most of our linebackers!...you're telling me Brett Hundley is an inch taller and, depending on breakfast, about 5 pounds away from Hill?

No that's not terrifying at all.

Wait - wasn't Ripley kidding about that one?!

We talked about this. HE LIVES IN CHINA, geez. I always assumed it would be uttering the words "Tiananmen Square" that spelled his end.

Well, I'm not fazed. #letsride with what we got. Though UCLA has been an awful foe in the past, they have also brought forth the most unqualified and unlikeliest of heroes.

So suspend all you want, cruel world. Suspend the framework of Mack Brown's house (life imitating Chuck). Eject the practice of Mormonism. Permanently remove ribs from Franklin BBQ menu (they're so underrated!). Suspend our Board of Regents (yea, but, seriously). This is TEXAS FOOTBALL baby. The one thing you can't suspend is belief.

Hook ‘Em H...

OFFENSIVE LINE PREVIEW

BREAKING - The intrepid reporters at The Texas Pregamer pulled a few strings and broke a few windows to get our hands on some insider knowledge straight from Coach Wick's personal O-Line journal (yes, it is fur-lined).

Here's an inside look at some out of the box players you may see lining up this Saturday:

E. Honda

  • Excellent hands.
  • Very coachable for someone who doesn't speak English.
  • Jersey sales in Osaka Co-Op would likely skyrocket.
  • Eligible; Illegal street fights hardly count as organized sport.
  • Part time car wash/car salesman job has never been an issue.

The World's Most Interesting Center
  • His snaps inspire beat poetry.
  • Linebackers rush to his defense.
  • He misses nothing but your company
  • When he pulls, it tugs at your heartstrings.
Bane
  • Didn't adopt Pat Moorer's Pit.
  • Was born in the Pit.
  • Was molded by it.
  • Note: terrible center. Has trouble calling out protections audibly.
  • Explosive on Kick Returns

That Fat Kid from the Goonies
  • Already has a fat guy touchdown dance.
  • Scouting report may be dated.

PREDICTIONS

TejasChaos: I will fall asleep to the sounds of celebration... ...in Brentwood. Sigh.

VYPumpFake: In a brilliant move, Coach Strong starts suspending the opposing team. UT runs away with it, 66-3.

Kyle Carpenter: ATILLA THE HUNDLEY! There is a legitimate chance that we'll make more Heisman favorites this year than Eric Taylor makes star quarterbacks. AND COACH TAYLOR IS THE KINGMAKER! It could get ugly, but Swoopes will certainly not put up the worst QB performance in JerryWorld in the past 7 days.
