I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Well, we've made it to the last Friday afternoon without college football coming. One week from now many of us will be itching to leave the office, out of towners like myself will have been packed up for the trip to Ann Arbor. With games next Thursday and Friday nights the season is finally here. What are you up to this final game-free weekend (Until Wife Day and Wife Day II Wife-Day-Harder)? What will you be doing almost exactly 193 hours from right now?
days for the freshmen to continue to work hard in camp and the first Game Week(!) to solidify their spots on the two deep or potentially special teams.
Also this guy
will continue to get healthy and be there for the team, the team, the team when needed.
days until this dynamic duo remind this guy:
where's The Threat when they take on CMU.
days until Jeremy Gallon and the receiving corps. look to show Central an improved passing attack.
11 days until our safeties go out there and try to become our next binky.
Also, there are 11 days until Team 134's 11 starters on offense and defense and Special Teams take the field and welcome the Chippewas to the Big House.
