Monday's Meatloaf - Resigning Myself to Independence


(tap, tap, tap...) Is this thing on? Is Joe Schad here yet? Darren, please hold all my calls...

After consulting with an empty bottle of bourbon and some fruitcake crumbs...I have decided to resign from blawgging.  When I broke the news to my wife her reply was simple. What? have a blog?

Yeh, heartwarming. Pour me another glass of empathy on ice.

I'm looking forward to giving the laptop some time off and hope to be able to spend more time with my mirror. I love this blog and feel like I'm leaving it in better shape than when I got here. When my glass is once again half-full, I hope to return to the staff in some administrative capacity. Whatever I can do to help...and fetch doughnuts.

When I speak with Kirk Herbstreit later, I'll probably laugh at him for having more hair highlights than collegiate ones. But I'll also divulge some more details about how painful this is for me. Please tune in, with Kleenex. 

I love this blog, but there are things that are more important than tags, links and bloggeristic integrity. The stressors and the tiepos have just worn me down. This entire season I have blogged with a sprained pinkie.  In my stead, I leave a very healthy Darren the intern with the keys to the private BDB least on an interim basis. But right now I'm just focused on today's game against the Aggies and going out on a win.

Is my tie straight? Has Lou Holtz saturated his clip on mic yet? Is Rece replacing that sharp grin with a look of befuddlement? Ok, well it's time to heat up the oven...

Today's Ingredients

  • Corch is leaving the sideline...Corch is coming back to the sideline...Corch is a clever recruiter....Corch is a sonuvabitch.
  • As it turns out, Slurban is just addicted to the stressors that have caused this hooplah. I'll eat a pair of jorts if he's not on the sideline for the season opener against Charleston International School for the Blind
  • As a result of the prime time FlipFlop, some of today's ingredients may be a little stale. I have tried to keep them as current as possible. But the reality is that by the time I click Publish, Corch Slurban may have decided to start himself at quarterback for the Sugar Bowl.
  • I think Kyle put into words best what my feelings were Saturday night on the subject of Meyer stepping down. He came back Sunday to take some more words outta my mouth. 
  • Rex looked deep into the heart of the man and found that he is is full of it.
  • Back in Shreveport, the Dawgs have put some extra GAs in GATA
  • Here's the latest from Hale's Practice Notes.
  • The Senator provides some great analysis as usual in his Indy Bowl Thoughts.
  • After falling to Clempson in last night's NashVegas Bowl, Big Blue's Brooks is 80 percent sure he's done. We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if he's taking a page from the Meyer Spread.
  • Another visit to Roughing the Kicker shows us that even before this afternoon's game in Shreveport, Coach Richt is in elite company.
  • I don't think we'll have the offensive fireworks many are expecting. The Ealey/King Connector runs the clock as effortlessly as they run the ball and the Dawgs bring home a 30-20 win.
  • Call that a late stocking stuffer or a gift from a wise man. can bank on it.
  • Yes, how sweet it would be to beat Coach Kines this evening. The King of Bend Don't Break gets broke....And speaking of Joe Kines, remember this YouTuber. We just gotta keep playing!!!

I hear Kines has invested in some listening aides since his last trip to Shreveport. Back at the podium, there's been a change in the script.
(TAPTAPTAP!!) this thing on? Have I garnered as large of an audience as possible? Can someone please refill my bloody mary?

Thank you all for tuning in. After a spirited breakfast, I have decided to continue with this blawgging gig. I now realize that there are more important things than taking deep breaths and being a family dude. This internet thing Al Gore invented for us is a pretty good thing. I'd hate for my absence to cause it to shrivel up like the skin of a molting reptile.

I'll still take a leave of absence, but in my gut there is much churning. And I truly feel that I'll be back tomorrow to stare at the soft glow of my laptop's screen. I hope that I didn't lose any recruits readers during what has been a very private, soul-searching time for me. It was never my goal to steal any of the spotlight from this weekend's other tackle football games.

My critics will point out that this certainly could've waited and that my knee has jerked...twice. But I know in my heart that I'm doing what's right for me, myself and I. As a bonus, it also feels right for America!

So here's your napkin Reader. We have our Independence. We have our bowl. And most importantly we have our unsolicited opinions that so easily publish on the internets
