STARKVILLE, Miss. -- It's a crisp and beautiful day in Mississippi. Currently about 50 degrees and the mercury is supposed to dip to 40 degrees tonight. This is football weather, folks!
As you get ready for the game tonight and you still don't know what to think about Florida's offense, consider this: Tim Tebow said it would be different. Apparently, no one was really listening. In today's Miami Herald, we take a look at the misconceptions of the Florida Gators' offense. Here's the link. CLICK ME! Pretty good read.
So, I ventured out of my hotel room last night against the advice of one of my best friends (who happens to be a Gator). We'll call him Gator Peru.
I asked Gator Peru, "What do I do in Mississippi on a Friday night?"
Gator Peru and his Peruvian wit: "Stay inside your hotel room and pray, bro. Maybe go to the hotel bar."
Well, I went and mingled with the natives anyway. Met some cool dudes. For most of the night we talked about rebuilding muscle cars, which I know nothing about but received some cred for my devotion to buying Fords.
The Southern accents in Mississippi kill me. So harsh and exaggerated. Like speaking with marbles in your mouth almost. Nice people, though. Got invited to a couple tailgates today at The Junction. Pretty sure I'm going to pass.
