This news actually makes me happy for ASU fans. I tend to lack patience with them because they are the biggest Hog haters in America. But, I genuinely felt bad when I read some of the abject misery from red Wolves fans when the joy of their best season in decades quickly turned to pain with the departure of Head Coach Hugh Freeze to Mississippi.
I have to admit that in one way I am a bit saddened by it all. I mean where have all the BlogHawgs abbreviations gone?
In the span of a few weeks, BlogHawgs Nation has lost TMC (The Mississippi Coach, Houston Nutt), TSC (The Shiloh Coach, Gus Malzahn) and TRBTLBMICG (The running back that likes Body Mass Index Challenged Girls, Michael Dyer). The good news is we will be adding one, soon–TLAAFB (The Los Angeles Angels first baseman).
Meanwhile, if you are an Auburn fan you have to be a little nervous. Gene Chizik is starting to look a bit like he did at Iowa State. Wthout once-in-a-generation freak Cam Newton his teams have looked fairly Amesian at Auburn.
And now, less than a year after winning the BCS Championship, both of his coordinators have left very high-paying assistant gigs to go to Central Florida and Arkansas State, respectively (to be fair, though, defensive coordinator Ted Roof was given a pink slip).
Throw in the fact that Michael Dyer–(aka TRBTLBMICG) the best offensive player on a suspect Auburn offense–is suspended indefinitely and very well never play another snap for the War Damn Eagle Tigers, and there are plenty of reasons for the most anxious AU fans on The Plains to be concerned.
But enough about Auburn. It’s Arkansas State’s day. Congrats, ASU fans. But, is Jonesboro big enough for Kristi Malzahn?”
