I figured it was a line from the movie, but I saw it so long ago, and my memory isn't quite what it used to be...old age and all.

Animal House fun fact:

Donald Sutherland was the "biggest name" actor in that film at the time and it took a lot of persuading to get him to sign on to the project, as it was expected to be a nothing film. the studio wanted to give him a percentage of the film's gross, but he held out for a flat fee of $50,000.

Animal House was so successful over the years that it was estimated Sutherland's percentage, if he had taken it, would have been in excess of $20,000,000.

Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Gerhart is more assertive and "quicker to hit the hole" this season. That's largely a product of him having a full offseason and more familiarity with the scheme. But Gerhart also credits his offseason conditioning work, which included yoga in order to become more flexible.

Toby Toby: "Early on last year, I would get one in the first quarter, one in the third quarter. It's hard to get a feel for the game. When you get a couple back-to-back, that's when I'm at my best. I think that's any running back. You like to get a little sweat going. I just feel much more confident and relaxed."

Yoga is probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. Of course, due to lack of stretching over the years, that makes it worse. Laughing

Frazier said he would limit the snaps for running back Toby Gerhart over the final two preseason games.

Hopefully Jordan Todman does something, if he's healthy.

Derrick Coleman seems destined for the Practice Squad, and Lex Hilliard doesn't add much to the team, unless he can play kickoff and punt.

It'd be really nice if we could find a small scatback with break away potential and not be injured/suck.

I was pleasantly surprised by Asiata last game. I personally would prefer him so far over the other 3rd RB options.

I prefer Asiata as the #3 RB as well. Having his versatility at RB, FB and special teams will really help this team. He seems like a better runner than Hilliard and is probably a better blocker too.

While I enjoyed Animal House, I find that I identify myself with Clark Griswold more than Bluto.

John Landis' Animal House pioneered the gross-out movie genre, for better or worse and it was a pretty huge sensation in its day. The genre kind of fizzled out but was reborn with the American Pie series.

But really it was Airplane!, which came out two year later, that changed motion picture comedy forever.

Very Happy
