The Big Eight Family Portrait and Merriment

Hello again, Red.

It's Misopogon of MGoBlog. I hope you're still enjoying your welcome to the Big Ten, which is like the Big XII except there's twelve teams here instead of Oh, and the referees aren't out there trying to screw you unless you are a.) trapped in a fairy world imagined by a Penn State fan, b) Illinois, or c.) a known Domer; in which case, a.) We can't help you; b.) Yes, but nobody really cares; or c.) Don't even talk:


This week EDSBS turned up a few old family portraits and did a "What's the SEC thinking?" rundown to go with it. Our SBNation blog promptly followed suit for the Big Ten When Men Were Men (and Ten Were Ten). With all these cute family photos going around, I figured I'd dig up your old one too.

Oklahoma State: Why you no-good, long-eared varmint, I oughtta....uh....oh, nothing Sooner...sir. (someone's clearly suffering from an abusive relationship at home).


Kansas State: "Thufferin' this Thuckatash thince Eighteen-Ninety-Three!"


Iowa State: "I tawt I tode you: DOTE PWUT ME NETT TO TH' PUDDY TAT!"
