Coastal Carolina School for the Paycheck
Looking back, I've got us at 1-1 going into this game, but I'll make this quick since I want to get started on my long weekend.
Dawgs 100, Chinnuts 3
I'm assuming these guys are earning somewhere in the upper hundred-thousands to come to Athens and play the Dawgs. But as you can tell, I'm also assuming we win heartily.
I know very little about Coastal Carolina, but last year they got a 31-0 paycheck from West Virgina, and were co-champs of the Big South Conference with a 6-6 overall record...so that gives me a little insight.
They aren't actually called the Chinnuts, Coastal Carolina's mascot is the Chanticleer...
...which appears to be a teal rooster with set of these under his beak, the eyes of Raiden, and a sweet arm tat!
Aside from making fun of their mascot, I got nothin'. I'm hoping our offensive line makes it safely through the first 2 games of the season and we give our back-ups the chance to earn some playing time. Lord knows we need some experience and depth up-front in case any starters get injured later in the season. Fingers crossed everyone's ankles/knees/extremities stay connected and safe throughout, but you can never be sure due to how often these guys get piled up.
Have a good July 4th weekend ere'body! If you have a desk-job avoid Alabama firecrackers. Just try hitting "Enter" with your ring-finger, you'll never hold a lit M-80 again.
