Daydreams About Night Things*

The sexual innuendo in today’s strip is so chunky you can eat it with a fork, but you’ll want to use a spoon to catch every… wait a minute, we’re not at the Copyright Cantina!

“I’ll see you at the end of the season.” What does Gil know that we don’t? That the Mudlarks and VT will meet in the season finale? That True will transfer to Milford after football season? I don’t even want to waste time speculating.

I just feel for poor Kaz. His daydreams probably didn’t even focus on the unspeakable filth he’d do with True but on his fading hopes of career advancement and a shot at coaching glory. The maelstroms of emotion he’s going through! Anger to the point of inflicting a razor cut on Gil. Self-loathing to the point of cutting himself with that same razor. Weary resignation that being an assistant for Gil means never being able to compete on level ground. Humiliation that True could choose Valley Tech – that trade school! – over Milford.

In P3 Gil suffers from what Daffy Duck famously referred to as “Pronoun trouble.”

“It’s not ‘Maybe we’re not cut out to be quite so big-time.’ It’s ‘Maybe you’re not cut out to be quite so big-time.'”

“That’s true, Kaz, maybe you’re not cut out to be quite so big-time.”

“No, no Gil, it’s not ‘Maybe you’re not cut out to be quite so big-time,’ it’s ‘Maybe I’m not cut out to be quite so big-time.'”

“That’s what I said. Maybe you’re not cut out to be quite so big-time.”



*Apologies to Ronnie Milsap. Maybe induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame will make up for it.



  1. So, what’s with the ellipsis there? Was True going to say… something interesting? I guess… we’ll never… know.

    Panel three has to be one of the least inspirational but somewhat profound coaching moments yet from Gil. Forget it, Kaz. It’s Tank Town.

  2. Kaz having daydreams about somebody he has never personally seen? An alleged “3 star” athlete who can’t chew gum & walk at the same time…Get a grip Kaz…This whole plot seems total BS. Because if he were truly a stud from the Savannah area,True would be truly lusting Tech, Georgia, Clemson or South Carolina….
    We are all predicting–here’s mine: (a) True discovers that football coach is a jerk, (b) Valley Tech is a feeder school for MIT & their ilk, and True’s academic credentials are negligent…(c) True is slow in healing, quits football, does a student trainer’s gig, and becomes a B-Ball star…..But IMHO he will ultimately go to Milford…

  3. Rowdyman, a Mark Richt or Steve Spurrier cameo would really liven up this strip. I’d guess True would like Richt’s character building (as long as he stayed out of trouble with the Athens-Clarke County PD) while Art would be swayed by Spurrier’s visor throwing and down-home witticisms.

  4. Exellent point Rowdyman. I was wondering the same thing. None of these coaches have seen Twue play first hand. All they know outs the BS False has fed them. He might have posted his stats against the Little Sisters of the Poor for all they know.
