Phillip Sweet, the country singer, once said, “Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.” LL Cool J broke it down like this, “Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.” Then Jack Canfield, the author and motivational speaker, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”
Well playas….there are a ton of distractions goin’ on at the University of Louisville this week! I can tell you that! Fresh off of beatin’ the brakes off of then No.2 Florida State 63-20 and havin’ the Heisman front runner on campus! Bruh!!!! It’s NUTS!!! All I can say is, boyz at Louisville are gonna need counselin’ to make it through this season.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! This ain’t Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, Texas etc.! This is Louisville! They don’t have a locker room full of 5 star recruits that have been on top of the world their whole lives. They aren’t accustomed to all of this attention. See the duns at places like Bama and Ohio State have been in the spotlight since they were 12!! So beatin’ the brakes off of the No.2 team in the country on national television is no big deal to them. But for Louisville this is foreign territory and at any moment they could fall apart and be dull. They could literally lose this Saturday because they aren’t payin’ attention to what’s in the street. A boy can literally look up and it be Friday and he hasn’t paid attention to a think his coaches have told him all week.
Think about it bruh, you’re dealin’ with 18 to 22 year olds on a college campus that aren’t used to the type of attention they’re gettin’ right now. These duns went from bein’ ranked 19th in the preseason to bein’ the No.3 ranked team in America today!! Everybody and their baby’s momma’s momma, Ms. Jackson, is all of a sudden tellin’ them how good they are and all of the women on campus are tellin’ ‘um how good they look!! Boyz are knockin’ on their doors all hours of the night givin’ ‘um love and dappin’ ‘um up. Duns are droppin’ off bread and I’m not talkin’ about the type you eat either.
ESPN, Fox, CBS and every fake media-type coverin’ college football is on campus tryin’ to holler at a boy. And Lamar Jackson may as well go into hidin’ bruh! He’s not gettin’ a ounce of rest! Keep in mind that these are college students. They aren’t locked behind a wall with security guards like professional athletes get. Naw playa, they live in the freakin’ dorms and apartments with the rest of the students. Boyz have all access to them and all of a sudden their No.3? On some real talk, they look better than both Alabama and Ohio State right now. So you already know that it’s NUTS on campus!!!
I know that some of these fake media-types have been tryin’ to down play Lamar Jackson’s talent when cats have said that he’s playin’ as good as Michael Vick at Va. Tech and Vince Young at Texas! But hold on a second bruh!! Neither of those two were puttin’ up numbers like this dun is at the beginnin’ of their sophomore seasons!! I’m just sayin’! Now it’s still early but he’s scored 18 touchdowns in 3 games pimpin’!!! Vick nor Young ever did that!
However, I’m willin’ to wait to crown him better than those two but I’m not crazy enough to say he that isn’t in the back seat of the ride with them. Sure, he’s got to take these boyz to the national championship and even put the ENTIRE team on his back against the No.1 team in the country to be better than Vince Young. I’m not crazy! But startin’ his sophomore season he’s talkin’ Vick and Young’s language fluently.
I just hope ole dull motorcycle ridin’ Bobby Petrino doesn’t get in their way because this is about to get VERY interestin’. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
4) Pimpin’: noun – the person that I’m passionately tryin’ to get my point across to.
