“Thursday” Pump Up Jam – Prayers Up

We have no idea what this team will be. Will this offense be able to score points? Will this be 2019 all over again? We’re praying that this season is closer to 2018 or 2020. These lyrics pretty clearly summarize what the scene will be at the Warrior tailgate on Friday evening:

Prayers up
Whole squad sending prayers up
Purple drank in my prayer cup
Whole squad sending prayers up

Thursday Pump Up Jam – Friday

3:30pm, getting up to the Evanston
Gotta be fresh, gotta go to Ashland
Gotta have my beer, gotta have Whiteclaw
Seein’ everything, Fitz is goin’
Rollin on and on, Rose is rushin’
Gotta get down to the Lot
Gotta catch Rose, I see the Warriors (Warriors)

Kickin’ in the front seat
Rose doesn’t have any back seats
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?

It’s Friday, Friday
‘Cats gonna lose big on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the West Lot, West Lot

Friday, Friday
Gettin’ down on Friday
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the West Lot

Partyin’, partyin’ (yeah)
Partyin’, partyin’ (yeah)
‘Cats, ‘Cats, ‘Cats, ‘Cats
Drinkin’ lot’s of Whiteclaws!

Thursday Pump Up Jam – Hunter

“I am the Hunter. I am the great unknown.”

That’s what we thought during the offseason. Now it seems like we know who he is and what he’s capable of. Right now he’s listed as the worst transfer QB in all of college football. That’s bad, real bad, Michael Jackson.

But here’s to hoping we’re wrong. And that the Hunter “Gatherer” figures things out this week and leads us to victory. Or at least to covering the spread.

Go ‘Cats.

Thursday Pump Up Jam – All That She Wants

All that she wants… is for the ‘Cats to not get embarrassed again early on in the season. I think all of us are scarred from games like Akron and Illinois State (or even to a certain extent games like Duke and Western Michigan).

UNLV should for all intents and purposes be an easy win, a chance for the offense to try and figure some things out, and an opportunity for the defense to remember how to tackle again. But us ‘Cats fans know better than to sleep on this game.

All that she wants is for a stress free blowout win. Let’s pray we get what we want.

Go ‘Cats!

Thursday Pump Up Jam – California Girls

The ‘Cats last win came in California, beating the Utah Utes in the Holiday Bowl. Will we get another Christmas present this weekend?

We will hopefully beat teams all over the US this season (ok, mostly in the Midwest), but don’t you wish all the wins could be California wins? Especially ones in Pasadena, California? Is this the year we get one of those? Only time will tell.

Go ‘Cats.

Happy Highlight-ween

The Wicked Witches of the B1G West have a big game a-brewin’ on Saturday. In order to get everyone pumped up, we’ve got some clips from the last two times we played beat Notre Dame.

And, just because Dave Eanet is the best… “The Cardiac ‘Cats are Back!”

Things That Were Happening the Last Time Notre Dame Beat Northwestern

Yes, yes… Notre Dame leads the all-time series record a whopping 37-9-2, however, since the loss to the Irish in September of 1994, the Wildcats are undefeated. To celebrate the start of ND week, here are some things that were going on the last time ND beat the ‘Cats:

Ace of Base Tops the Charts

What a coincidence that this song is frequently played at WLW tailgates. The top single of 1994 is The Sign by Ace of Base.

D2: The Mighty Ducks Released

Wolf “The Dentist” Stansson tries to derail the hopes of Team USA (better known as “The Ducks”) as they look for Gold in the Junior Goodwill Games. Can head coach Gordon Bombay overcome the distractions of LA to lead them to victory?

The US Hosts the 1994 World Cup

The US made the Round of 16 for the first time since 1934 which began a renaissance for the USMNT. This video is super 90s and I love it.

There is No World Series Due to a Strike

The poor Expos lost their chance at a World Series due to a strike. They were 74-40 that year, and atop the NL East. Don’t worry, the Cubs sucked that year.
