Holy hell, look at this. Think Mandel's been mining the blogs for material? Considering that in the college blogosphere we spent most of the offseason talking about new-wave offense, an argument that lay at the heart of the Great Sissy-Boy Blogger Slapfest of 2005? No royalties pending from Mandel, we're sure, but just the sneaking suspicion that blogs may be pushing the hounds of interest in one direction or another is gratification enough. (You Direct TV customers may experience some interference and static tonight, especially those of you on the West Coast, as HP's ego swells to stratosphere-stretching size after reading this.)
Check out their kickass animated playbook, too, complete with audio and the pinched twang of Pigskin Lucifer himself, Steve Spurrier.
Orson goes across the middle to post a piece by Mandel only to find Stranko waiting there to pounce on him.
