The Key to the BSU-USF Game

For those of you wondering, like I am known to do from time to time what a particular game comes down to, often times it’s hard to pinpoint the exact thing that would make people worry, wonder, fret, or celebrate. However, this game at Scheumann Stadium at 4:30 today for the Cardinals comes down to one thing… BJ Daniels. Or more specifically, which BJ Daniels shows up.

There’s SUPERAMAZEBALLSHEISMANTROPHYHOPEFUL BJ Daniels. We saw him last year. Notre Dame saw him last year. We do not need to see him today. However, there is another side of BJ Daniels, don’t you know? A side that makes South Florida fans huddle in fear and the green and gold clad masses to band together around the shared sadness and shame. Hopefully coming Saturday afternoon to a stadium near you…


Perhaps you’ve seen this mythical creature. The most recent sighting was September 13, when Evil B.J. threw three picks to the Rutgers defense and was perhaps more responsible than any other for that Thursday night upset. He’s been known to pop up from time to time, and with the pending showdown with Florida State just a week away, perhaps SuperAmazeBallsB.J. will yield to an unfocused looking ahead EvilB.J.. A BSU fan can only hope.

(Ed. Note: If you had the ability to bet on OTP, the odds that a post that contained the phrase SuperAmazeBallsB.J. would be solely about football and not even PG-13 in the slightest would have had to have been 1,000,000 to 1. -Ed.)
