Everytime I think about this game, I throw up in my mouth! Purple makes me puke!
Go Dogs! Beat the Barnies!

Lawdog- Re: Howerton -Amazing story, but somehow what we would expect from him. I saw the interviews with him after the block on Saturday and saw what Coach Ayers had to say about him; and now this just confirms all of that. Great story.

This brings everything full circle. Excelling at football is one thing, but making an impact in this way is something that is light years ahead of athletics. As much as I love for Wofford to win, stories like this make me prouder of our little school than any athletic victory. Some schools just get it, fortunately Wofford is one (as is Furman, I believe) and the world is a better place for it. That being said, and since it is Furman week, that's all I plan to say nice about the Paladins until after the game.

Fricking nightmare start. 3 & out, give up a long pass play for an easy TD, then fumble and give it to them on our 7.

Finally getting settled down. 20 - 13 at the half. Now we have to hold 'em. Need a bit more pressure on their QB!
