Do not be fooled. Behind that Abe Lincoln beard, there is a cold, calculating mind possessed by Travis Carroll. Branden Dawson wronged him in east Lansing in early January. Since then, he has been biding his time, waiting for the perfect moment to exact his vengeance.
Tonight is that time.
One does not simply punch Tacos and get away unpunished. The Big Ten ignored it, but tonight, in Mackey Arena, Travis Carrroll will rain down hellfire. I predict nothing less than 40 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists, 10 blocks, and at least four dunks where Carroll places his nuts on Dawson's chin. We shall know this is happening when Tacos comes out of the tunnel sporting a shaved head, beard died black, and two full-sleeve arm tattoos.
Tonight Tacos sends a message to the Big Ten that he is no longer messing around.
Tonight, Tacos GETS REVENGE!
