Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

No, especially since sack yardage comes off of rushing numbers. We're at least trending in the right direction.

If my research is right, Gary Patterson joins Mike Gundy, Bill Snyder, Nick Saban and Mark Dantonio as the only Power 5 coaches to win in every stadium in their conference.

General football thread eh? This isn't because of anything tonight (though probably.)

No. More. Slow. Mo. Replay. For. Refs.

If they can see 37 angles at full speed and not overturn it then guess what? It stands. Period. Move on with y'all lives. This breaking down of every little inch of everything is turrrrible
