From dancing to video-bombing, you will find it all here in this great video. I want to point out to @TheACCDN that my only gripe is that if you do a running man challenge video montage you have to include Damion Lee. Other than that, kudos.

Nunnsense: New Hype/Highlight Football Video

I miss PJCS. I miss tailgating. I miss the sound of the band. I miss DJ K-Dogg. I miss the intro video. I miss the train horn. I miss the inebriated young man in front of my seat that refuses to sit down because “this isn’t Commonwealth Stadium.” I miss my beer vendor. I miss giving high fives to the closest 20 people around me after every score.  I miss the Ladybirds. I miss seeing Robert Patrick Petrino giving the business to a referee after a bad call. I miss the incredible student athletes competing at the highest level in an effort to bring home a victory. I miss all of you. I miss everything about the game day experience at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium.  If you are like me then you are itching for some Cardinal football right about now. In 2 short months the season will finally get under way. Until then all we have are memories of last season and hope for this one. I put together a hype/highlight video for you to enjoy……..

Dez Fitzpatrick: The One To Watch

Dez Fitzpatrick

When Dez Fitzpatrick committed at first I was elated. His game was a throwback to the AFROS I grew up watching. Has a little Deion Branch with his speed & route running and a little Lavell Boyd in him with his sure hands and ability to make difficult catches. Imagine my horror when I hear: Dez Fitzpatrick de-commits. I was hurt but I had been through it before. Brushed myself off and took to Twitter to say I was upset but wanted nothing but the best for the kid. I got a DM from his dad that said: thanks for your support & it’s not over yet. That made me feel better as a fan. Today I seen this story from the CJ’S own Steve Jones.
