c. Reasoning based on inconclusive evidence; conjecture or supposition.
One of the most entertaining quirks of Canes fans is the ability to work ourselves into a nervous breakdown speculating about something we have no control over. The farther into the future the dreaded event occurs, the better. Anxiety ferments very slowly. You have to have patience and fortitude to fret away an entire summer.
Who the hell cares if we have two of the best freshman quarterbacks in America? Are they going to insure next years recruiting class is rated ahead of Florida’s? Damn it man!
You don’t have to be Einstein to realize if you miss out on the number one rated high school player in South Dakota, your season is doomed, and what the hell is Shannon thinking?
Then you got this Nix character. It’s well documented Carlos brands him a loser. Carlos has friends that are doctors and lawyers for cripez sake! Better make your list of available OCs for at least the next three or four seasons and slip it under the mattress. Oh, and better make sure they have an advanced degree too, for Carlos.
How about having to go to The New Place to watch home games? Cheese and Crackers! I can only imagine what a pain in the ass this is going to be. It doesn’t matter that it’s half a century newer than the The Old Place. So what if you can actually watch replays? Who needs real bathrooms? This move was just a political ploy that will surface after your grand children graduate from the U, watch and see.
PJ and Patches, unbelievable losses, probably cost us at least a touchdown over the next ten seasons combined, my stomach aches just trying to comprehend lining up without them.
What about Ice Harris? I mean, we gotta have him, and right now! Sure we landed his son Brandon, but how do you expect Shannon to recruit next year with out Coach Harris on the staff? If we let Ice slip away you can bet there will be no Mr. Florida III shuffling around Green Tree Practice Field come next spring.
The thing that worries me most is the quality of the six and seventh graders coming up. Have you seen these little, scrawny kids lately? I'm telling you that if no ten or eleven year old steps up, hits the weight room and bulks up this fall you can kiss that first round Cane pick goodbye come 2014. And you can vault that!
