Out of the Woodwork

Well, if anything can get me out of a non-posting slump, College Football Season is it! Whoo hoo! Just 5 days, 5 hours & 27 minutes until kick-off for the season opener at Notre Dame. I'll just pause a second and let that sink in.

Ah...

Yes, there is much excitement in the Crane household. I'm excited because the season is about to start, Kennan is excited because that means I'll stop asking him, "Is it Football Season yet???" in my most annoying voice, and the cats are excited because they have toys to ignore and behinds to lick. All is well in the universe...

Except that I'm a bit annoyed because what with the Michael Vick controversy, I haven't heard them "talk Tech" YET on 790 (The Zone). It's getting a bit annoying. I mean, we're playing Notre Dame, people. I could even understand if we were, like Virginia Tech, playing East Carolina (slackers), but we're playing Notre Dame, for crying out loud! I know they're wildly overrated (time and again), but come on! A little coverage would be nice.

So what does everybody think? Are we going to bring home the W? Are we going to see Charlie Weis get all purple in the face watching his offensive line crumple against our mighty D? Will T. Choice be able to charge down the field into the end-zone like usual? Will Travis keep his aim true, and will the mighty Durant Brooks keep dropping 'em inside the 20 like it's nothing? And will all our hopes and plans come to fruition in the charming duo of Taylor Bennett & James Johnson? (Or, will Calvin Booker or one of the other QB hopefuls sneak in and seal the deal?)

And will I forgive Kirk Herbstreit for leaving Tashard off the "Best Running Backs" Herbies list, since he did include Tenuta on the "Favorite Defensive Minds--Ruthless Aggression" list? Hm...
