Don’t you just absolutely hate bye-week? Oh, I know; I know. The team needs time to rest, get healthy, practice, and prepare for the next game and all; but as a fan, don’t you just hate it?
As a die-hard, dyed-in-the-wool true maroon Bulldawg football fan, you waited patiently all winter. You were forced since February to listen to your umiss-fan friends, relatives, co-workers, and neighbors rave about their recruiting class. You were giddy with excitement at the Maroon-White Spring Game. You yearned all summer long for football season to finally come back around, and it finally did! Now, here we are in the second bye week of the season, and it’s just like another mini-offseason! It’s football season, for crying out loud! There you are in your regularly scheduled work week grind with absolutely nothing to look forward to come Saturday!
As you struggle through, however, you might like to know what our old buddy, Bully, is doing with his free time while the coaches and players are busy preparing for next week’s invasion of wildcats from the bluegrass state. He doesn’t get a whole lot of free personal time during the season to pursue his outdoor hobbies, so Bully is taking this bye week to get in a little fishing and hunting. Looks like he’s doing pretty well, too.
As for the rest of us, we’ll just have to make do with anticipating the umiss black bears being embarrassed again at the hands of the Bayou Bengals.
