T.E. (Tiger: Eugene) Chizik and Sharif Malzahn stand upon a precipice. Their small and unlikely band of warriors gathers behind them. Several weeks journey away, stands their quarry and the goal of their journey, Aqaba-scaloosa. With it's guns turned to the sea, they do not anticipate attack from the landward side. T.E. Chizik has concocted the perfect battleplan, but standing between them is a great desert. Some have said this desert can never be crossed. But Chizik of Auburnia is undeterred. All eyes look to him as they stand on the brink of glory.
Sharif Malzahn: There is the A-Day. And that is the summer. From here until we reach the other side, no football news but what we carry with us. For the fans, no football news at all. If the fans die, we die. And in four months they will start to die.
T.E. Chizik: There's no time to waste, then, is there?
The desert of summer is upon us. We turn back for no one. Good luck to you. And may God help us. God help us all.
Bloggers Note: F--- the summer.
