We’re baaaaaaccccckkkk. I sincerely hope The Manoverse considers that a good thing, although I know there are those that don’t particularly enjoy sports related topics. Be patient. Y’all know that The Manofesto is a cornucopia where we discuss all kinds of stuff, and I will do my best to not focus solely on football for… Read More 2017 Pigskin Picks of Profundity…Week 1
Football is back!! It kind of snuck up on me. I have been watching NFL pre-season games, but had no idea that real college games that actually count started tonight.
