Bobcat Football is ready to begin.

Welcome beloved followers of the drivel.  The Montana State University Bobcat football season get's underway at 1:05 PM this Saturday and I'll be there for the opener.  My schedule looks good this season for not missing a home game.  I usually miss one for various reasons but it looks like I'll have a perfect attendance this season and that makes me very happy.

I'm always optomistic about our chances to contend for a Big Sky Conference title but even more so this year.  The Cats return a lot of starters, are deep in most positions and outside of the Cat-griz game, which is in smogville Missoula this year, like their chances to make that game for the BSC title.  Redhirt freshman quarterback Denarius McGhee has been given the keys to the car and that alone makes me excited.  This kid played for Trinity High in Dallas and was 13-1 as starter including a 5A state championship.  Trinity is a HUGE powerhouse in Texas.  McGhee played in front of 25,000 fans in high school so playing in front of 14,000 Cat fans won't even begin to bother him. He's a stud.

Here's the deal. Cats open with Fort Lewis on Saturday then travel to Pullman, WA to play the I-A Cougars and yours truly will be there.  After that we have Head Coach Rob Ash's former team Drake.  They should be able to enter the conference opener against Eastern Washington with a 2-1 (3-0?) record.  This game determines the season.  I can't remember the last time we beat EWU. Can't.  They've had our number as much as the griz have.  However, if they can beat them, they should be able to run the table on the rest of the conference and both Montana teams will be undeafeted when the Cats go to where you put an enema Missoula to play the dark pink.  If the Cats can defeat the minions of hell, they will be outright conference champs, get an automatic bid in the playoffs and at least an 8 seed.  Keep your fingers crossed.

Meanwhile in
The grizzlies will be stacked as always. Their new coach Robin Pflugrad, has implented a new offense and new defense. According to all the fans of the dark pink, this is the best grizzly team EVER!  Hmm. The graduated 17 seniors. At least 11 starters, two guys who are still on NFL rosters, and THIS team will be better than last years? Really?  This team is good.  One thing I learned when Bobbie Hockaloogie was coaching was never, ever, underestimate these guys.  As much as I hate to admit it, they have a mystique, one I'd love to see the Cats acquire.  Coach Roberta played in 3 national title games in 7 years, and then he was run out of town. They signed three kids from Montana and the rest were almost all from Oregon.  From this point forward I will refer to them as Eastern Oregon University. 

I don't really want to do this because their initials or um and as I like to say, you can't spell scum without the um.

griz fans call the title game "the chipper". Dickheadisque I know.  But they will be tough. I will be anxious to see how a brand new offense and defense plays out over the course of the season.  griz fans suck ass so I'm hoping for a big popcorn fart of a season for them. It's a big wish but a guy can dream.

The key to our season lies in the hands of a 19-year-old stud from Dallas. Godspeed Denarius. The eyes of Bobcat Nation are upon you. And our hopes are extremely high.

Take a look at this montage of DM.  He's a stud.  We still have a great backup in Cody Kempt. Started 13 games for Oregon and a great player.  QB is solid for the Cats this year.


I'm at tailgate spot #54 on the booster side.  In the grizwagaon.  If I'm not there, help yourself to my cooler.  It's Keystone Light, the official sponsor of my tailgate spot.
