McGuffie is homesick....what can we as fans do to make him feel more at home?
One thought I had is the student section wearing cowboy hats....any other ideas?
I say when we play the highlights between the third and fourth quarters, we blare "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" in the background. I'm totally serious.
as a texan, i hate all of you.
hahaha i was hoping to hear a comment like this
I'm being serious! ok - so the hats might a little stereotypical and not be a great idea, but I would like to show the kid some love!
I thought that during his recruiting, when he considered going to Cal. His family was going to be moving with him. And that the cost of housing in AA relative to Berkeley made M more attractive. Did I not hear this story?
may be the fact his home and family has been struggling lately due to post hurricane ike related stress. it may just clear itself up in the next few weeks. despite it not really being national news anymore, things down here aren't all sunshine and cattle. i just got power back yesterday after a 2 week hiatus. about 20% of the MAIN power lines are down, which means 25-30% of people dont have power. his side of town was one of the ones missing large areas. this can put a lot of stress on his parents, not just because they don't have air conditioning, but traffic in houston has been horrendous (or at least much much worse than normal), and some commodities just arent available yet.
formerly--- i think we can all appreciate the dedication to mgoblog that you show after not having power for 2 weeks... you're right back. it's worse than crack.
Have I missed the "McGuffie is homesick" memo?
One off-hand line in an interview where he says he misses his family and friends?
Besides, he also said he's shy. Why would he want a lot of nonsense directed at him?
I think someone should make a sign that says "Everything's Bigger on McGuffie."
An 18 year old college freshman is shy in his new town and misses his old friends a little?
I was 45 minutes away from home in college and when I left, you're goddamned right I missed my best friends and my family. That's just how it is.
This doesn't sound like a kid who's saying, 'I need to get back to Houston'...just a kid who's getting used to being away from home, like we all had to do.
The best way to show this guy love is to open more holes for him on our offensive line.
allowing him to run free, not the type that allow linebackers into his face 5 yards deep.
"the best way to show this guy love is open more holes"? I don't think I've ever heard it put quite like that before.
