THE CURIOUS INDEX BELIEVES IN SQUATS

THE COVER IMAGE IS LOVE. ROLL IN IT TODAY.

THIS IS WHY OLE MISS IS TURNING ITSELF AROUND. Because they believe the right things, obviously.

As they say in Oxford: hell yes.

ALL COWBELLS ARE REAL AND FUNCTIONAL. Miss State's new football facility was just rafters and aluminum when we toured it last year, but it's all nailed down and purty and all photographed in convenient slide show form. You will notice that the lights in the lobby are giant cowbells, but in event of an earthquake over 5.0 on the Richter Scale they will ring just like real cowbells. We made this up, but you would believe it because Starkville is a strange place, and Dan Mullen likes form AND function. (P.S. this is why Chris Relf works as one of the heavy sandbags in the weight room.)

SMOKEY IS STILL IN CHARGE. Tennessee gets in trouble for having an intern do some coaching, and if this was on the defensive side of the ball last year no one in the world would blame him for it. In other Tennessee news, Cordarrelle Patterson is getting the reviews you thought he might from scouts.

PLEASE SUPPORT SCIENCE. Dinosaur football was immense fun to make, mostly because we asked Joe Sertich to do it, and he responded like someone who'd been thinking about this for a decade. (Which he probably has.)

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY (A YEAR FROM NOW, SWEETIE.) The Auburner's cards are always a delight, but especially so when you work in a quality grayshirt joke. The Key Play's Paul Johnson card is also a keeper.

CHICAGO NEEDS MORE POWERFUL PEOPLE. Because really, reaaaaaally?

ETC: "And that's how I ended up in a ditch in Belgium." You're at fault here, Japan, and are part of the problem. IMPORTANT DINKLAGE NEWS. Never, ever lie when there's a computer record of your lies unless you want to claim you drove a hacked car.
