That’s much different than going 7-5 or 8-4 with blowout losses.

For recruits, the feeling is extremely positive. To a man, they feel once they get to campus they can help the team get over the hump.

The idea behind moving the Humidor to Fridays was to be ahead of the game day curve, rather than behind it. Besides, we can always clean up any post-game information in the Scoop.

With the game today we thought we’d advance the Humi and also bill you a day earlier. Just kidding, I don’t even know how that works.
