What were you doing one year ago this week? I was not blogging about the Aztecs football, I can tell you that much. In fact, I was trying my best to not think about the Aztecs at all.
You probably know why.
In case you’ve purged it from your memory as a defense mechanism, on September 19, 2015, this happened. Here are some game highlights to remind you of how our overtime loss to South Alabama went down:
Ah yes, I remember it like yesterday. If you don’t remember it like yesterday, maybe that’s because the game was only live-streamed and not too many live witnesses were in the building.
With all the wonderful stuff that’s transpired since, it’s hard to fully comprehend the emotions we were all feeling at the time. So a year later, with the Aztecs nationally ranked and another game with the Jaguars in the offing, it seemed like the right time to revisit these memories.
So sit back, put Death Cab’s “The Photo Album” on your airpods and enjoy Kabeer Thirty’s Children’s Treasury of Rage Tweets From Least Year’s South Alabama Game.

I would make a Brady joke, but it would leave you feeling … deflated?
Oh come on, maybe it was a shortsighted tweet but I hardly think you should be fired, Jason.
Forty percent of the words in this tweet are hashtags. #impressive #ratio
The fact that I don’t retweet this after every Aztecs win has been a failure on my part. I apologize and will try to do better in the future.
But wait, how did our CURRENT KABEER THIRTY STAFF react? Surely they knew this was but a momentary blip on our path to greatness, right?
LOL, what a dumbass.
Man everything truly was awful, wasn’t it? Was there even one person out there who wasn’t feeling like absolute garbage?
DON’T TELL HIM! Ignorance = Bliss.
