My Beavs start the season on the 4th against the TCU Horndogs at Jerry Jones' billion-dollar
Unfortunately, non-conference road games early in the season have been BAD NEWS in Beaverland for years. Perhaps there's an LSU fan reading this who remembers how my Beavs CHOKED down there a few years ago on several missed PAT kicks. That's the kind of thing that happens. Either that or somebody like Cincinnati makes us look like 8th graders. Heck, most years the Midsoutheastern Kentucky Academy of Swine Herdsmanship would give us trouble if they were the first game on the schedule. That's 'cuz we're famous for slow starts. Then when we're just about written off, we go on about a 7 game win streak and end up in a middlin'-level bowl game and a ranking in the low 20s.
So, what can I do differently this year? What can I do (that isn't a felony :) to prevent another embarrassing, "make me want to drink hemlock" first-road-game faceplant?
