Julie opens the door to her dorm room, only to find her roommate rolling around in her loft bed with a boy. Her phone rings as she shuts the door behind her. It's Tami, who does that mom trill of greeting at her daughter. Tami asks about her roommate, Julie answers "She's fine, she's just... busy a lot." Yeah, busy in that 1980s hip-hop song kind of way. Tami asks about her classes and Julie tells her that she's trying to decide between Econ and Myths of the American South. Tami says that she always thinks that Econ is something you can use in real life. Hmmm, as in where? Like, I never took Econ, and I am living my life just fine, with only the occasional 50% tip to a cabbie because I can't do the math that fast in my head. Julie tells her mom that she wasn't asking for advice and then rushes off the phone as her roommate opens the door to the room again (this time fully clothed) and tells her she can come in.
Vince and Luke hit up a barbeque place, chatting about letters of intent. Luke bitches about Hastings, and Vince jokes about how angry Luke has been about Hastings recently. An older gentleman in line ahead of them butts in and starts praising Vince and his "canons." He pays for Vince's dinner. When Vince introduces him to Luke as "my star running back," the man -- Bob Short, of Short Gardening Supplies -- clearly could not care less. Luke shakes his head ruefully.
Coach out on the field at night, overseeing lightbulb replacement on the scoreboard. Buddy drives up on the field in his huge SUV and lumbers out. He's there to give Coach a heads up that he's going to be getting a call from the Athletic Administration -- apparently they are investigating Luke's huge hit on Crawford last week as there's been a safety complaint. Coach is pissed, "What the hell? It was a clean hit." Buddy tells him that he knows and commiserates over these bureaucrats trying to cover their asses. And let me say, this little dose of Buddy Garrity really makes me miss this guy. Come back to us Buddy!
