The proper state of mind

It's 48 hours later, and I can't stop thinking about it.

Wednesday evening's practice -- the last practice I got to see in Rantoul -- left such an impression on me that I can't stop thinking about it. It was so crazy, so competitive, so intense, that I'll be driving in my car and my mind will drift to Terry Hawthorne breaking up a pass and 40 guys on the defensive side of the field mobbing him like he just returned a pick-6 in the Rose Bowl.
