Off the Ground

Welcome.

OK, let’s cut through the crap right off the bat.

A lot of you probably not only know me, but have called me every name in the book at some point or another. I’ll admit that the thought of starting from scratch under a new ghost name crossed my mind a lot over the last few months. But let’s face it…you clowns would just figure out who I am anyway, and quite frankly, I don’t feel like changing my writing style to try and throw you off my trail. Blogging itself is pretty dumb, so there’s no use in me trying to be somebody I’m not.

So with that being said, welcome to my new corner of the internet. As some of you may know, I shut down my last blog, because the team it was dedicated to simply ceased to matter. Oh sure, a few things have happened from time to time over the summer…but let’s be honest here: I don’t care much, and unless you are wearing a yellow piece of foam shaped like an ear of corn on your head…you probably don’t either. So with that being said, let’s move on to other things.

With the new blog, I wanted to expand the conversation to a wider audience, while still keeping the same charm and hatred that dripped off the walls of the old blog. I apologize for the cryptic look. As you know, this little venture is constantly changing and evolving, and quite frankly…I’m never satisfied with it. Besides, so many of you bitched about not having anything to read…I figured I’d better get it up and running before it’s time to run my annual Bowl spectacular.

For those of you who have never read my material before, let me give you the standard welcome.

I’m not here to be your friend. I’m not here to break down how Iowa State’s starting left guard is doing a great job in pass protection. I’m not going to pull punches, nor will I personally attack student athletes. (Unless they do something really stupid). I’m not going to cheerlead for my favorite team, nor am I going to fark together pictures and expect you to laugh hysterically at the funny way I made dollar bills appear to fall out of Bob Stoops’ ears. If you want that crap, go visit those other blogs who specialize in saying nothing at all.

What I will do is blast whomever deserves it, and praise whomever has earned it. Too often in blogs such as these, so much focus is made of the play ON the field, that people completely miss the reckless insanity that takes place off the field. Whether it’s the media, the fans or other blogs…I will make it my job to call people out for who they are and what they have said. When the actual season is over, you can be sure that I will keep my eye on other things that you should be aware of, especially the foolish ramblings of recruiting nerds, columnists and national pundits. Mix in a little bit of pop culture and just plain hissy fits about things that piss me off…and you get the continuation of a project that started in 2005 and ended with the destruction of a once mighty football program.

Oh, and one last thing: I invite any and all comments, although I only ask that I be able to moderate them first. Leave it to one of you freaks to cross the line, and yes..it happens. I approve 99% of the comments that come my way, because THAT is the true way to define the mentality of a fan. If you say something stupid, not only will I comment on it…but the rest of the world will see it as well. (So be careful.)

So that’s it. The new era has begun, and slowly but surely…this place will resemble a website that actually looks like a respectable outlet for everything from creative thought to whiney tantrums. I love to write, and as you…I love to follow the greatest spectator sport on earth. I think you’ll find that the more you hate me and my words, the more you will be pulled into my trap…which is fine. They’re just words about a game, played by people who are barely adults.

Coming up next, the season preview and the inevitable pissing match that normally follows.

Again, welcome and please feel free to drop a comment.

AJ

  7. Nice to see the Hicks already roaring through cyberspace with the "You just can't get enough of us" smack. Weak and very very predictable.

  11. Life's too damn short to hate dude, I'll admit I don't like Mizzou, but I don't hate them. Get used to really hating Nub or whatever you call us again here real soon.

    I've never EVER used the term "nub" in my life. If you're going to be all pissy...if you're going to start bashing me before I really even do anything..at least get your fucking facts straight.

    Also..and this goes for others...this new venture is NOT a Husker blog. The Huskers are irrelevant these days, and will only really warrant true hatred when appropriate. Until they reach out beyond nuisense status..they will be treated as the mediocre mid-level program that they are.

  14. Medicore Mid-Level Co Champs of the Big 12 North. Yes, they lost the Head to Head with a young QB and a first year Head Coach. The improvement throughout the year is what brought them to the top of the north rankings. Well that and the mediocre play by the Tigers down the stretch.

  18. So your redshirt senior was a young QB? And it was his and your coaches fault you lost 55-17?

    Have fun living in the 90's.

    Roll Tide.
