From our good friend in the SEC, the mild mannered linebacker of the Florida Gators Brandon Spikes,
"We lost a game in the SEC. Who did USC lose to? [Reporter: Oregon State.] Exactly. Of course he's going to say that, he's the head guy, he's riding high, but he just beat Penn State. (Derisively) Penn ... State. (More derisively) Penn ... State."
I'm just taking this all in now. There's nothing else to do about it. It's humble pie. It'll make me a stronger fan. Why fight it? Someone on this blog keeps referring to "cognitive dissonance" . I forgot who, but he/she kept getting the definition wrong. Well, this here is cognitive dissonance. What was believed to be true turns out to be fraudulent.
The first step is acceptance.
Thank you Brandon Spikes. May I have another, sir?
