Analysis sent to my inbox

Man it is getting rough down here. Got this analysis sent from a BAMA fan at work to my work email. Didn't have a source in the email so I will take the liberty of pasting what was sent to my email in it's entirety. In short, as BAMA sees it, there Offense is better than our Defense except for the interier line where we are even. Thought I would share the aggravation, and give Bama's perspective.

Make Something Happen

Just got finished reading the story of Josh Trimble's father.

Trimble sons keep their fathers memory alive

Great Read if you haven't already. This paragraph stood out to me.

Gretchen even had shirts made featuring Steves face and his saying. Jordan, Jeremy and Josh wore them under their jerseys during the first game after his death. Over the course of the 2011 season, the entire OConnell community embraced the message, and the stands were covered with fans wearing Make something happen shirts.

VT football is beautiful.

I just moved to Ann Arbor and I don't have a bed yet. It's raining out, and the sound of it is scaring my dog, who usually curls up with me in bed when she's frightened. Instead she's trying to shoehorn herself onto this skinny little couch. And I've got a lot going on in my own life: I'm in my second full day in a brand new city, about to start grad school at a place I can't afford, to go into a dying industry with a stubborn baby boomer stranglehold on the workforce. And I'm debating whether I should text this girl, or chill out, or ask her out, or whatever. And (minus a couple shameful aberrations) I've gone over a full year without having a drink.

The Key Matchup, how to turn the Tide

I took it upon myself to analyze Alabamas weaknesses in an effort of determining whenand how we can derail their game plan. My findings? Read below.

Quick question...

When one says "Don't deny my pussy touchdowns"...is it meant to be understood that somebody owns a vagina and it demands touchdowns, or else? OR is to be construed that a pussy touchdown is a type of touchdown?

I'd like this cleared up before you leave for the day.
Thank you.

The Starters: Hokies Offensive Line Analysis

While the likely rotation came into focus last week, Coach Jeff Grimes made it official yesterday on his twitter account, announcing Jonathan McLaughlin, Caleb Farris, David Wang, Andrew Miller, and Laurence Gibson as the starting offensive line for the Alabama game. Most attention has been focused on McLaughlin, who will be the first true freshman under Frank Beamer to start at left tackle for the Hokies.
