    I'm just glad that none of the Advocate's writers get a chance to write an article like this.

    It's obviously a satire, a parody of those fans (of whatever school) who insist on finding bright spots even in the most one-sided losses. Pretty funny stuff.

    If it were the Advocate or any other paper in the SEC they wouldn't be joking about a blowout like that - They would be calling for heads to roll. They take football just a wee bit more seriously in these parts than they do out west.
