Philosophizing Robert Nkemdiche predicts the Peach Bowl

New, 25 comments

We're not real sure what the hell "resonant weight for the implicitly definable" has to do with football, but we were too scared to tell him.

Rebel defensive lineman and former No. 1 overall croot Robert Nkemdiche is something of a renaissance man. He’s a successful student athlete, a fashion icon and aspiring novelist, and based on his twitter feed, a burgeoning philosopher. *We asked him* to preview the upcoming Peach Bowl matchup between Ole Miss and TCU, and he was kind enough to oblige with this position-by-position breakdown.

Offense

Quarterback

An orbit is relative to time and motion, dependent on the forces of empirical certainty. Remove the certainty, and the orbit is relegated to the chaos of forms.

ADVANTAGE: Ole Miss

Running Backs

The onion’s layers only appear to have resonant weight for the implicitly definable. A layer is a layer. The onion is the onion. Peeling changes only the impression of change.

ADVANTAGE: TCU

Receivers and Tight Ends

Symbolism converts the actual to the metaphorical, the lyrical to the expandable. An image retains its weight only when the weight has tangible potentiality. If movement is the agent of lyricism, then time is the prosody of man.

ADVANTAGE: Ole Miss

Offensive Line

Consider. A tree’s motion is back and forth (wind), up and down (growth and decay), and circular (Earth). If the motion of one becomes dependent on exterior suppositions, the stagnation of discovery becomes actualized.

ADVANTAGE: TCU

Defense

Defensive Line

Strength is relative to perception. Perception is the flawed cadence of the disassociated god. The gyre widens.

ADVANTAGE: Ole Miss

Linebackers

Lungs expand and contract. So, too, humanity’s ability to replicate the structure of the idea. Expansion. Contraction. There is no idea that is free of the necessity for the obsolete.

ADVANTAGE: TCU

Defensive Backs

A foundation must be static to increase the interiority of exclusion. To be left behind is to be rooted in the freedom of allowable transitions.

ADVANTAGE: Ole Miss

Score Prediction

The skin knits itself to repair the wound. The limb cannot emerge once it has been severed. Return is a function of the circuitous tendency to engage. Speaking cannot slow the tide of homogenous certitude. Silence can only elicit the discovery of the normal. If neither speaking nor silence can further the calamitous shifting of the orb, the actions of the one are freed from the constraints of power.
