Commercials. Practice. Matt is stinking up the scene. Coach tells his kids to loosen up and have some fun. Mac pulls Coach aside and suggests that maybe they give J.D. a few reps. Coach refuses and Mac quietly tells him that it's his job on the line, too, and he's not looking forward to the moving signs in his yard. Coach just clenches and says he'll keep that in mind.
Cafeteria. Matt and Landry sit together, Landry talking about the media machine of J.D. McCoy. He's on the cover of Texas Football magazine. Matt remarks that it's the freshman preview so it makes sense. Landry is rambling about Matt not having "an angle" and Matt just wants Landry to shut it. Landry gets up and leaves, frustrated, just as Julie comes over to say hi. She sits down and tries to make conversation, "So, um, big game Friday." Matt's like "Yeah, it's huge. Yeah, it might alter my life, in fact." Julie asks him if it's a bad subject and Matt just starts rambling. He's trying to concentrate on Arnet Mead, which is hard enough because they never beat Arnet Mead, even Jason Street never beat them, but now he's got this kid named Joe Doyle breathing down his neck and if anyone mentions that stupid seventy yard pass to him ever again he's gonna lose it because it was in practice! I mean, he could throw a seventy yard pass, no defenders no one comin' at you... And, swoon. Zach Gilford, you are seriously Cute Overload. Julie is feeling this as well -- and, have you noticed that her Bangs of Teen Bitchiness are gone, replaced by side-swept Bangs of Sweetheartness? Julie tells him that he's really adorable when he rants.
Smash is in the back of the Alamo Freeze taking inventory. Mr. Pollard comes in to see him to ask him if he's thought of a future with Alamo Freeze. Smash chuckles and says that honestly, no. The old man tells him that they really like his work and that the Alamo Freeze is expanding, opening four new stores, and they need a regional manager. Smash stammers and says he isn't sure, and the old man tells him it would be a ten thousand dollar raise, plus bonuses and a company car. Smash gets sweet naive stars in his eyes and says that he'll think about it.
