Somehow I am entering my 9th season of writing this article which is pretty much a vanity project at this point. All the guys that brought me to this site have moved on and yet I’m holding a 7 month old and trying to figure out what’s the best song order and what will make me feel like I really know the music. I should have given it up years ago.
Well, WE. ARE. SEE. AGS!
A relatively quiet offseason, minus one dubious arrest for DWI.
Questionably speaking, Huntsville definitely has a former resident who fits that bill.
And speaking of arrests, did you know that we are playing against the team from where one of the longest prison sieges in history took place? Yeah, and it’s fucking wild! In 1974, Texas’ biggest heroin dealer, Fred Carrasco, and two other inmates took 11 hostages in the Wall Unit in Huntsville. Their requests for toothpaste (understandable), cologne (of course) and bespoke suits (ummm what?) were met. On the final day, the men made an improvised shield of legal books taped to blackboards and headed for an armored car lit green by the governor of Texas. The governor’s name was Dolph.
Additionally, the shield was later dubbed the Trojan Taco. Sometimes I don’t really have to try to make this article stupid.
It should be a good way to get back to college football. A little coffee, maybe some tacos, and an 11 a.m. kickoff. Have fun, be safe and BTHO sam Houston!
