Call me a procrastinator, but I'm tired of my classes and it's finals week. I need a damn break from Culture/Diversity and Critical Thinking. So, I peruse the internets, looking for some CFB minutia to rustle jimmies, internet high five, and rabble on about. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten my Phil Steele's preview or the summer edition of Dave Campbell's Texas Football to fap over just yet. Hopefully they got my forwarding address, those careless sonsabitches. Nevertheless, someone has decided to step up and make all of our CFB wishes come true. Unfortunately, that group is Sporting News, the same company that decided to cancel print of their monthly(or was it weekly?) publication and focus only on the previews and reviews of the sporting world. Well, the decided to beat everyone to the punch and released their CFB preview a month earlier than the competition. This can only mean CFB Magazine Preview REVIEW threads will be polluting LoneStarBall before you know it.This isn't going to count as one, because I'm not buying that tripe that Sporting News puts out, especially when I can get it for free online. So, with all that being said, buckle up, hold on to your (gar)butts, and let's have some fun, ya'll.
