Every NFL season there are a number of players that gain massive hype and shoot up draft boards, only to disappoint because their expectations were too damn high.

Untitled College Playlist, Part 2

So I found another maxed-out mix CD with eerily similar structure to the last mix I wrote about. Figured it best to add these songs to the previous playlist and keep the words to a minimum this time… 1. “Eulogy” – Frank Turner – Play this at my funeral. 2. “Send Me On My Way” […]
