Can We Just Run The Wishbone For the Rest Of the Year...just for the fuck of it?
ah Spread Offenses...the wave of the future in college football. they are totally awesome. you can score shit tons of points and it's super exciting! yeah, not so much. i guess it helps when you have a QB like Chase Daniel and wideouts like Percy Harvin and Jeremy Maclin. but if you are say Auburn, and have a noodle armed JC transfer and a young athletic kid who can't hit water if he fell out of a fucking boat trying to run the damn thing it sort of looks more like this:
and so here we are. the season is halfway through and we have no fucking offense to speak of and an injured and overworked defense just trying to keep the pieces together as everything collapses around us. and so what do we do now? most people wanna see Auburn fire Tony Franklin and go back to the power I formation. that still won't solve the biggest problem of all though...we don't have any fucking QBs. and so i am calling for a much stupider and crazier change. let's just run the wishbone for the rest of the year. it'll be like 1981 all over again. we can stick Kodi Burns in at QB and line up Ben Tate, Mario Fannin, and Brad Lester all in the backfield at the same time. IT'LL BE AWESOME. or a total trainwreck...which is far more likely. but hell, the triple option is working pretty damn well for Georgia Tech...might as well give it a shot for the Tigers. granted noone on our staff probably knows how to run it and all our recruits might just decide to decommit all at once and the earth may stop spinning and we might all be sucked into a blackhole...but it's worth the risk, if only because it'd be more fun to watch than the current bullshit going on right now on the Plains.
for awesome video proof at how unstoppable we would be just check this out
lost in the shuffle of anger and crying is how awesome Ben Tate played on Saturday. it's no doubt in my mind that he has become the heart and soul of this Auburn team and whatever gets to ball in his hands as much as possible is the offense that we should be running.
