Lord, how much do we love college football?
Some of the biggest numbers on this website come from stories about the SEC and college football.
Many reasons for our affinity on this include the pageantry, the history and in some ways, it is only 3 months out of the year, so it builds up to a frenzy.
That is why, WHAT THEY MEANT TO SAY, is so much fun to write.
Because, Y’all make it fun to write. Let’s do this.
“No one is panicking around here. We don’t have time for that. I guarantee you will see a different football team come Saturday versus UMASS!”
“Speaking of guarantees, I need to get my lawyer to check my contract that I still get paid if I am fired after 3 games.”
“We played 21 freshmen against Arkansas State last Saturday. We might have to play 38 first year players against Oklahoma. Both true freshmen and redshirt freshmen.
“Jesus Christ. We are going to get slaughtered. This might be worse than what happened to Custer.”
“Look, we got Georgia coming in here Saturday. They are good, they are favored and they are supposed to win this game. We will just show up and hope we can hang with them for maybe a quarter or so. I don’t know.”
“Welp, I might be 70. But, I will fight a sumbitch in a damn heartbeat.”
“We still have a long way to go before I can say we are a good football team. A long way to go. Now don’t sit here and tell me how bad Southern Miss is, that is still a very respected football program. Any more questions? Good.”
“If I could breathe Ebola on you fools, I would. In a damn second.”
“I was proud of our team in their effort against Nicholls State. We didn’t take them lightly and played a complete game. The Auburn game we lost and this game we won, a complete dichotomy on this football team.”
“Best part of being the head coach in Arkansas. You use some big words, these fools have no clue what you are talking about. We might be last in the SEC West but dammit, Arkansas is number one in illiteracy.”
“Look at our schedule. It is going to get tougher. Like cheese. A block of cheese. Take it out of the freezer, or the fridge, I don’t care where it has been, it could have been in the back of your truck, or your car, in the trunk, but how many of our cars have trunks anymore. I look around and see everyone driving those SUV’s. That stands for Submarine Utility Volvo’s. Cars you can drive on water.”
“We got one under our belt. Got a win. That was big for us. Now we have to go forward and do it again on Saturday.”
(Ed.note: That is all that Muschamp said at his press conference. We went to change it for this story, he called and threatened us.)
“We have won 2 games but that means nothing now. It is all about winning in the SEC and we have a tough game against Florida ahead of us and we will see what this team is about.”
“I want to thank everyone for coming out today and supporting UK football. I appreciate it. Great turnout.”
