Double dipping from the same post here, but something else from the Dave Matter's Mizzou football blog stuck in our mental craw this morning:
Speaking of Pelini, Im not the first person to point this out, but I cant look at him without thinking of the actor Tim Blake Nelson. Id pay money to hear Pelini lean into a microphone and say, We thought you was a toad!
If Tim Blake Nelson spent his free hours pounding face with kneecap in the Octagon, then yes, certainly, there's a similarity. To be truly scientific, though, there's only one way to test these things: in a lab. Paging Dr. Freek; you're needed in the semiotics wing. (For added verisimilitude, play the embedded mp3 below it while watching.)
L'il Red, btw, is going to be the site equivalent of Pedobear or the Bear in Harvey Birdman this year: he's going to pop up wherever he damn likes, thank you very much. Just consider yourself warned, since his gaze and spastic walk will haunt your sleepless nights whether you like it or not.
