Once again, it's our summertime winds down in favor of the cool, crisp autumn. Fireworks have calmed, cold beer is replaced by stout liquors, and smoky barbecue still reigns supreme. We're having the times of our lives, and we would like you to as well. As this weekends will be engulfed in the conflagration of college football fandom, we Cuppers would like to share with you our weekend plans, along with the weekend plans of a few others of note, in order to hopefully give you ideas as to enjoyably bide your time until Saturday's kickoff.
Weekend Plans, you were wonderful to us this year. I hope y'all had great Summers, because I know we at the Cup certainly did. But Summer leaves us and, in her stead we have college football season, the undeniably most wonderful time of the year for any fan of "amateur" athletics. Oh, what a long, strange trip it has been this offseason but, by God, football is finally here and everything just feels oh so right once again.
The song of the week is the Pride of the South's warmup. Yes, it's goosebump time, y'all.
Click the jump, friends.

Houston Nutt - Ready for a drink and a long nap, that's for sure. Well I tell ya. Stressful dealing with the NCAA, yessir. NCAA, not NAACP. Don't make that mistake. I did once, and let me tell you, Al Sharpton's secretary doesn't appreciate needless phone calls. And don't call them "CP" either, if you know what I'm saying. Old fashioned. Offensive. Confusing. Like books with too many words. I always liked the short ones, Like the magazines. But I don't subscribe to 'em. No sir I don't, just read 'em at the dentist's office. UMMC. Pete Boone. Terrell Brown. IPF. Tig Barksdale, good kid. Shorts. Floppy hats. Croakies. Hotty Toddy. But, yeah, I'm ready.
