Hello Followers. Hope you’re having a great week. As you know, it’s been an action packed week for Cougar Football. On Sunday, we had the announcement of Mike Breske as Defensive Coordinator for the Cougs, and then a couple of days ago, we announced that Jeff Choate of Boise State is joining Leach’s staff.
While many in the cyber universe believe Choate will coach LB’s, Monroe’s Tweet on Sunday suggested that his position coach was from Miami (Valero), meaning that Valero would presumably be the linebacker's coach. So, at the very least, Leach’s introduction of these guys will prove interesting...
In any case, those of you who have frequented this blog for some time know that some of the best commentary on this blog comes from, well, comments. And nowhere is that claim more evident than when it is my turn to post….
But on Tuesday, our loyal general Stiffmeister had a comment that ruled the day. He suggested that it was now high time to provide a name for the ballhawking defense that we hope to see on the gridiron this fall.
So, if you want to check out my name for this year’s defense, then click on the old jumperoo. (Read on).
Followers, one of the things that’s the most exciting about this upcoming season is that we already have an established identity. After all, with Tuel and Halliday returning, along with a wide-out corps of Marquess Wilson, Bobby R., Kristoff Williams, D. Williams, Dockery, Simone, and so forth, we figure to have more than enough tools to live up to the legend of the “Air Raid” offense.
But when it comes to the defense, well, it becomes a much tougher call.
I mean, do we go back to the Future and try to resurrect the “Palouse Posse” moniker of the 1990’s?
Of course, the most obvious option is to go in the whole Pirate direction. But, as soon as you go there, it becomes pretty difficult to come up with any name that is something other than silly, lame, dumb, or all the above.
So, in thinking of the name for this defense, I thought it timely to take a look at some of our main characters.
And so, as I started to look at dudes like CJ Mizell
and even previous defensive leaders like Alex-Hoffman Ellis
The name started to become increasingly clear to me.....
So, while the 2012-2013 Cougar Offense will be the Air Raid offense. I am proposing, check that, I am DEMANDING that the 2012-2013 defense be called......
THE HAIR RAID DEFENSE!!!!
In my view, developing such a defensive identity requires only a bit of creativity and purpose. I mean, it doesn’t take much for Chester Sua to move from his clever Zipper-Top look….
To a much more intriguing mini-Conehead transformation that would be killer on the Tee-Vee...
Similarly, it doesn’t take much to turn a guy like Travis Long Into a much more powerful Mullet-Driven alter ego named…
Travis Schlong (Short on the Top/Long in the Back)..
In any case, when you think of all the possibilities of Hair Raid posters, people in the stands wearing combinations of pirate gear and crazy Afros, well, it’s enough to bring a grown man to tears...
As for me, well, if the Hair Raid concept comes to fruition, count me in as guy who will be ready to rock and roll like it was 1978.
We can make this happen, followers. Now, it’s up to you to post this concept on every message board in America.
The Hair Raid defense.
