A Brief Primer: Proper Use of Blackouts in College Football

Just so it’s clear to everyone involved.

THIS is how Georgia implemented a blackout in 2008.

The result: a 31-0 halftime deficit at the hands of Alabama and eventual defeat.

Conversely, THIS is how North Carolina implemented a blackout in 2008.

The result: Bruce Carter blocks three punts, Marvin Austin returns an interception for a touchdown, and the Tar Heels blow out UConn 38-12.

You put on shirts. WE turn the goddamn lights off. THAT is how you strike the fear of God into your opponent. THAT is why we can powder blue and not be the least bit concerned about our machismo.

The bar has officially been raised. Your move, Iowa.
