20 Reasons to be Excited for Syracuse Football - #15

As we move closer to the 2011 Syracuse football season, Lots of Pulp will be counting down the top 20 reasons to be excited for the new year.

By now you've been introduced to “Dave Rahme's Dungeon of Doom and Hungover, Sunburned Gloom." How could these videos become more awkward, more uncomfortable?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Bud Poliquin and Nolan Weidner.

Sometimes in tandem, sometimes solo, always odd.


At Syracuse, I studied Newspaper Journalism. As many realized that the “paper” portion of the industry was dying, newspapers adapted by asking their reporters to become more tech-saavy.

Twitter and blog posts weren't enough. Slideshows with ridiculous music...not gonna cut it.
Reporters were asked for post-game musings, and Bud and Nolan deliver.

Instead of continuing my ramblings, I've decided to let the poorly formatted pictures tell most of the story.

While Bud rambles on and on, Nolan seems to have come to grips with the fact that this is the least favorite part of his job.

Might as well look interested.

Has Nolan warmed up to Bud by inviting him into his living room?

Nope, not that easy. Wait, that's their hotel from the road. Is the paper so short on cash that they share a room? Double beds? One king?

* * * *

Yup, Nolan's again resigned to just listening to Bud channel his inner Shakespeare. Either that or he's nauseous from looking at Bud's shirt.

Nolan's going to jump in to speak!

 "Not so quick, shut your mouth, I've already told you. The last 15 seconds are yours."

* * * *
Then there are times when Bud is free to roam the set by himself. Are these screen shots easy to jest? Yes. But this is the kind of treatment that a UConn graduate deserves (did we all know that?!)

"Hi folks, I'm here inside with my bright green fleece zipped all the way up. The paper's cut off the gas...but I know I'm still bringing the heat in here.

Finally, you've got only me on this broadcast. Can you believe they would make me share the camera. Me?

It boggles my mind. Why??
Nolan can't express himself like I can.
His vocabulary is one of the simpletons, the peasants.

Not only do I provide linguistics you thirst for but I look good doing it. Can you get enough of this vest on top of a shirt and tie? I can't.

How about my red? Eh? And my Office Depot background?

Can I touch myself one more time?

Suddenly we're holding back? Look I'm the scribe of all scribes, the voice for the voiceless, the true cantor of the 'cuse.
So just settle in my people. I'm only just beginning, and you need to hear all I say."

Get ready for more video gold this upcoming season. If you have any good clips, try taking a screenshot.

Future contest? Most definitely.
