Found August 31, 2013 on In The Neutral Zone:
It’s just hours until Kick-off and I can’t wait. I finally get to see the boys play and all, so excited. The nerves will also start kicking in closer time I have to get up for the game. Here in Australia I will be getting up 12:45 AM Sunday morning to join you all in cheering on the boys. I got a post the other day about how Coach got really ticked that someone was doing some scouting or something and they were wearing Blue shirts. They where ask to put on Scarlet shirts, which he provided but if they did not change they had to leave. He also does not use “That Word” when discussing a certain team. From what I read he will use TTUN as does everyone else. I miss the electric of being on campus today especially. The buzz and everything that will go with it, seeing all the scarlet and grey, hearing the band. I would love to be there for the very first skull session of the season. It is going to be electric to say the least. What about the first timers, I wonder how they are all feeling? Have the nerves kicked in yet? Have they had their final walk in the shoe yet? Lots of questions and know I won’t have answers but it is kinda fun having a thought. I will create my own little tradition as I get into the season. If I get home sick at any time of the season it’s now, I want to be there in the parking lot to have a tailgate party before the game, to hear the beat of the drums as the band heads to St.Johns for skull session, ( I know St.Johns is gone, can someone please tell me where they go now?) Had ESPN College football show on the other day when I was doing a job for someone and the were talking about the Heisman Trophy front-runners and  the first name on the watch list is Braxton Miller. It’s only a few hours left. Are you ready for the ride of the season?
