NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Around the Table: The Championship Quest
December 5, 2008, 12:39 PM
I want to try an experiment and I think this group is creative enough to pull it off. The purpose of the Thread is to tell a story. A story with no limits. Create a plot line, advance a plot line, reference other posters, or just add "LMAO". Maybe it comes to a conclusion... maybe it spirals into chaos. That is up to the posters who contribute a sentence, paragraph, or more. Anyone can post, make suggestions, advance the plot, or just give props.

*****DO NOT be critical, disrepectful, or negative even if you dislike a specific poster... this is meant to be fun for everyone. *****

If a poster is made into a villian, roll with it because every story needs colorful antagonists. Turn the plot to your advantage. Become an integral part of the story with a sense of humor.

This can help fill the lull between the end of season and National Championship. I'll start.

I think PSU has been whacked by mod.

But was he whacked? Or the current victim of the evil genius Tnerb?

2 of these 3 words are allowed to be used together at any one time, but never all 3.

And somebody tell me what's up with PSU. Sounds like he has gone off on another bender against the mod-ites?

What the frack is going on?! This magnificent thread is demolished?! I thought we'd buried it for safekeeping!!!

As the days grew shorter the Guide Bears' needs were growing greater and time was running short. With an empty pizza box in one massive paw and his Cuss Word Jim doll and favorite sock monkey firmly clenched in the other, tGB exited the Ice Haus porch with one goal in mind... but first he needed to find his Big Ten Speed, it was missing!

I think it's still in the trunk of my Challenger Sir. That, and a now empty duffel bag that smells somewhat like a Christmas tree.

Frozen in place with puzzlement, the Guide Bear looked back at the Ice Haus. Through the grimy screen door he espied b-i-g standing with one hip cocked, contemplating the nob end of the handle of the broom which she held just so. Catching the Guide Bear gazing at her, a wan smile spread slowly across her lips. There wasn't the smallest hint of a blush as she slowly moved out of the view framed by the door.

Deputy Dupes' office has been swamped with tips coming in from around the nation as to the whereabouts of tGB's missing Big Ten Speed.

According to Deputy Dupes, an anonymous tipster claims the Big Ten Speed is still in Georgia and a task force has been sent to Ball Ground, Ga. to investigate calls made to to the Ice Haus from a confirmed Outlaw suspected of harboring a severe case of Big Ten envy!

The concerned look on Lady B-i-G's pretty face froze tGB in his tracks. He watched with a blank stare as the door closed behind her while nervously devouring the empty pizza box. tGB knew then and there that he needed to devise an intricate plan to achieve his goal, regardless of his might tGB couldn't save college football on raw emotion alone.

Back in his comfortable confines under the Ice Haus porch tGB took stock of his belongings. Besides his original issue Cuss Word Jim Doll that was kept under glass behind the bar upstairs right next to the red pickled eggs also under glass, he had seven other Jim Dolls that he kept crammed in his sock monkey drawer along with numerous sock monkeys.

He needed resources and he needed information but he couldn't get one without the other. His original issue Cuss Word Jim Doll was worth a fortune but selling that was out of the question. At the last National Action Figure Trade Association (NAFTA) meeting the memorative 2012 Asylum Playground Action Figure collection sold out before the show even started. tGB had two complete and unopened sets, this would be his golden ticket to finance his endevour but first he had to make his way to the nearest Stub Hub store to peddle his dolls.

Flush with cash from the sale of his Asylum Playground Dolls, tGB put his plan in motion. The recovery of his Great Big Ten Speed would have to wait, his need for speed was met in the form of a brand new Big XII Speed expedited overnight from West Virginia.

To tGB's chagrin he quickly realized his Big XII Speed only had ten gears and not the twelve he expected. It didn't matter though, it was the gear ratios that mattered and with an oversize front ring combined with the stumpy yet powerful lower limbs that tGB possessed the new bike was faster than his beloved Big Ten Speed!

When the Dean's office at Chapel Hill finally returned the call, tGB was informed that he would not need to interview for the position and the UNC brass had no qualms that tGB couldn't write since most of the 'student' athletes that would be attending tGB's Alaskan Studies courses can't read anyway. The 'student' athletes wouldn't suspect a thing but tGB knew that working undercover in the guise of an instuctor was an elaborate farce that would entail many falsehoods and would require extreme focus for tGB to be successful. The information highway led straight to UNC...

When the call came in that UNC and Ga. Tech had both accepted invitations to join the Big Ten, Deputy Dupes was in no mood to celebrate for several reasons. First of all it was because now that the B1G was at sixteen members the speculation was that the conference had completed its expansion and Notre Dame was not part of the equation.

But more importantly and weighing heavily on the Deputys' already stressed and anxious mind was the fact that the Guide Bear's upper front butt whole infection had worsened overnight and tGB was clinging to life by the weakest of threads.

Deputy Dupes planned a visit that day to the Guide Bear's place of worship, the Loaf of Bread Ministries to offer spiritual support for the beloved Guide Bear but before he could leave the precinct he had other business to attend to.

Surveillance video captured images of a suspected saddle sniffer hanging around a popular Chuck E Cheese restaurant and Deputy Dupes was drawing up preliminary charges of felonious mearcrafting of the first degree.
