Pasted Optimism is a place where we periodically post a collection of links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku. Click here to view archive.
Q&A with Brandon Weeden where the central theme is that Weeden is over his bad habits of a year ago, and is now ready to get serious. A sample of Weeden's bad habits from a year ago were: staying up past 8:00 to watch Matlock re-runs on OETA, spending all weekend picking goddamn weeds out of the flower beds, putting off upping his 401k withholding, and eating too much jello at Furr's. (you get it... Weeden is old)
As we all know, Bo Bowling was recently re-instated after serving a suspension and jail time for an arrest in February 2009 for marijuana possession. No word if his reinstatement was due to having the most bad-ass name since Colt McCoy, but I do find it interesting that in this TW article, all quotes by Holder refer to Bo Bowling only as Bo Bowling. No Bo's, no Bowling's, no BB's. Just Bo Bowling.
ESPN reports that it is likely that Utah will be taking the 12th spot in the Pac-10. And after the stellar conference re-alignment reporting ESPN has exhibited so far, it is safe to say that Utah will stay in the whatever-conference-Utah-is-currently-in.
With all the Big XII stuff sorted out for now, we are all running out of things to talk about, and breaking news to cover (and that posting any more pics of ASU coeds would now be seen as "pervy" instead of "news" is really disheartening). But stick with wastedoptimism and we will get you through the off-season with more How To Seduce a Big XII Fan, Texas Tech Before and After, more tugging at your heart-strings, the most comprehensive Iowa State Football coverage on the internet, some pictures of non-ASU girls, and many new features that will hopefully make your summer more exciting, and less sexually frustrating.
Aww hell... one more for failed Pac-16's sake.
