    5 – “Hahahahahahaha” click. Dial tone. If that story is true I assume that was the extent of the convo with Gruden. Something else that’s humorous is that’s the same convo Gruden prolly has every time Tennessee calls.

    I hate to interupt, but for our friends in Manhattan, DO NOT GO OUTSIDE!! If there are alligators in the sewer system…..they will surface. Just a tip.

    Continue with coach speculations.

    We at least have sharp uniforms. I like Whitlow he looks like he could be a good one given time. He seems like a smart hard working kid with lots of potential. We are in good shape QB wise with the log jam of three good ones. I would like to see Whitlow worked in even with Towles or Smith at QB. Maybe some kind of wildcat formation? We have some good players that are young we just need someone to lead them now.

    Did anyone notice Andy Katz laugh when he said “My partner in crime”? not sure what Andy is trying to get at, but no worries because he is such a suck up we should be good. Who cares if we are cheating, cause we are winning! #BBN

    When you rin off decent coaches and almost the whole 2009 recruiting class, what do you expect? #17 gets it.

    I think it would be illuminating to list the other Schools that have played more freshmen than us. Just for comparison.
