We're sneaking in a quick EDSBS live before a mid-week July 4th attempted barbecue O.D. Catch us before we founder and die from overserving ourself at the buffet line tomorrow.
What: EDSBS Live! online radio. ACC/Mediocre edition.
Where: At NowLive, where you can chat with each other and the show hosts throughout the broadcast in the online forum (the best part of the show, frankly). To phone in to the show, just call (310) 984-7600.
Who: Tonight's special guest is Bruce Feldman of ESPN.com. Oh, and the spirit of Liberty, of course.
Four Questions: As always, our four questions for the night.
1. What, if anything, do you know about the ACC heading into 2007?
Nothing. Abso-fucking-lutely nothing. Wake Forest won the conference last year. That's not an anomaly; that constitutes a communal cry for help.
We do suspect, however, that NC State under Tom O'Brien will go 8-4, because that's just what Tom O'Brien teams do, and that UVA will mush along at 5-7/7-5 until someone realized Al Groh is really just a postman who accidentally found himself in the NY Jets lockerroom after a long night at Scores, grabbed the first clothes he could find, and was then mistaken for the head coach of the team...and then rode it to riches.
2. To honor Reggie Ball as CFB's worst four-year starter of all-time, please share with us your school's worst multi-year starter.
Since Noah Brindise is out, we have to pick on poor Doug Johnson, who though not inept made up for his relative competence by being a total dickhead as a student/athlete. That's an ad hominem attack (blog foul, five points!--ed.), but we'll take the penalty just to say it. Fuck that fucking dickhead forever. (ten points!)
Johnson, seen here ignoring Spurrier and thinking about cars 'n babes 'n shit.
3. Now say something nice about the ACC.
Bud Foster and Virginia Tech's defense need no tragic inspiration to be completely and atrociously impolite to whomever comes to Blacksburg: Xavier Adibi, Vince Hall, Brandon Flowers, and Victor "Macho" Harris all return for VT, and Bud Foster stands with Mickey Andrews of FSU as one of the Most Coveted Henchmen in all the land, defensively speaking. Perhaps Sean Glennon's occasional meltdowns can be explained by the soulbeating he takes from Tech's defense in practice.
4. What's your most mediocre performance?
Our wedding night. No further questions, other than to say that if you've had ONE HUNDRED COCKTAILS and so has the bride, you should just cash the night in and make it up on the honeymoon.
