Hello, how ’bout that ride in from week one–THAT WE WILL TRY TO FORGET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
So, yeah, last week was UGLY. There’s really no sugar-coating it, so we are just going to move the hell on. The form for this week is below and you can find all rules within. Bonus points, standings, staff picks, and cat picks will all follow.
Legend has it the great Davy Crockett once said, “You can go to hell, I’m going to Texas.” Little know fact though is that that is only half the quote. The full quote was, “You can go to hell, I’m going to Texas with these drunk Irish lads and we are going to kick some ass.”
Yes, shortly thereafter Mr. Crockett had his arse handed to him my the Mexican Army, but lucky for the Irish this weekend there is no Mexican Army, just a longhorn. And dang it, longhorn is good eating.
So go Irish. Do it for Davy. Beat Longhorns. – Davie Dave
Legend also has it that Texas was indeed hell for all of us Sunday night. Point awarded for the solid Davy Crockett quote.
Notre Dame will Run the Damn Ball – IrishMann313
We did. A lot. We still lost. Dammit. Point awarded because, well…you weren’t wrong.
Pain – Otter2008
Point for brutal accuracy, Mr. T.
The purple faced Brian Kelly returns – Irish Randall’s
To be fair, he needed to return when ONE OF HIS PLAYERS GOT DECAPITATED WITH NO F’N FLAG. POINT FOR BEING SO MAD ONLINE.
Hall of Shame
Google has this thing called time stamps. Some people think they can sneak in a “prediction” after the fact and have it fly. These are those people. I had very little mercy.
Brendan Irish Boy – You came in so late, yet got everything so wrong. I actually feel bad for you because I think you watched this on DVR at some point and were very, very shocked. I’m going to give you 1 point for everything you got right (Kizer starting) and -1 point for everything you got wrong. Total: -3 points.
Mjl – I’m assuming you smacked your head on your keyboard for joining dumb fun and games so late. Congrats, you got everything right and scored quite well! Bad news! Your defense is run by BVG and you gave up 50 points. Total: -44 points.
Your moms cat – Not only are you going to get the BVG “bonus” like above, but I’m also awarding -1 point for everything you got wrong (Zaire starting) and for every typo you had. My mom may not have a cat, but if she did, it would be my mom’s cat and I’m not sure how there can be a “2 it game” in football (-2 total from the grammar police). Total: -48 points.
Look, I lash out not because I love but because I’m still pissed we lost. I’m sure you understand. If not, enter this week under a different name and I’ll be none the wiser!
HLS Picks[table “” not found /]
Gulliver is off to a solid 0-1 start both straight up and against the spread. Let’s see if the furball gets it wrong again this week:
Yeah, he better be 0-2 or this is going to be one hell of a long season.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
