Heading to practice tonight. I've been writing some new stuff all week, and after meeting with a couple of producers last week, I can easily say that I'm excited about getting back into the studio. As Prosevere, we've only released 2 songs out of the 10 or so that we already had written (not recorded), but now we've got an ever growing library of tunes. We'll have at least 25 to 30 songs written and we'll pick the best 10 to put on the album. Oh well...enough about that crap. If you wanna check out the band more, check out prosevere.com or myspace.com/prosevere.
Less than a week away from the first night of actual college football. And honestly, ESPN is kicking things off on Wednesday night with a 25-hour lead-in to the first game (LSU and State). That's unprecedented coverage, my friends. I guess I'll have to DVR what I can't watch. I think I'm going to take off work next Friday so I can just enjoy the day and watch all of the football reruns from the night before. :-)
The Crimson White points to our wide receivers as our deepest and most talented group on the team.
Simeon Castille spoke with the media yesterday, so that ended up being the big story. Honestly, I don't really give a shit. Read more about it, if you're so inclined, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
Everybody is freaking out about Leigh Tiffin being named the starting kicker. Didn't we just announce that Christiansen had a strained quad? I figured this was old news. Not to mention, Tiffin's a pretty damn good kicker anyway. Or at least was until the Arkansas fiasco. Either way, it's a big news story as well. Read about it here, here, and here.
Javier Arenas has earned a shot in the secondary. He's been playing the star position, which is the 5th defensive back, in nickel situations. He was a corner last year, but made the move to safety successfully.
Mike Johnson and BJ Stabler have been given the opportunity to battle for the starting position at right tackle. This is the 3rd year in a row that we're changing starters at right tackle, even though the previous year's starter is returning.
Rolando McClain will serve as a signal caller for the defense, which is odd, mainly because he's a freshman. Either way, he's a helluva ball player, and is gonna give us a spark this year.
