Former Owl Jarrid Smith Calling for "The Mustache Challenge"

Ah yes, 2007...the true Owl Fan's brightest season.

one of the young men who made that happen was Jarrid Smith, former offensive linemen for the Owls. That year he was a Second Team All-Sun Belt Conference recipient. Often soft spoken, he could turn it up a notch when feeling the need to be an effective leader by his words. You may recall an example of such, at the beginning of this clip of the Owls' 2007 New Orleans Bowl highlight video:




Fast forward to 2011, and Jarrid now finds himself like the rest of us: A Fan. However, he is once again rallying the troops.

Loyal to the end, he will never turn on his his team. Accordingly, he has come up with a unique way to show support and carry out one of his affections, quirky superstitions.

He even has a blog up about it. You can read that Here, but below is the crux of the matter, or should I say "challenge"?

"One the ride home from FAUs loss to UF this past weekend I mentioned in passing to my fiance that I wouldn’t shave my mustache until the team won, thus the GMC was born!  The GMC is a test of will and against popular culture (considering the ‘stache has been out of style for years).  It is a challenge that should be undertaken only by FAU fans that bleed blue and red.  To the faithful (and well-groomed) this challenge is bestowed, will you heed the call?"

Looking at the schedule, one's Stache may not have that long to grow...after all, ULL is on the horizon - just 23 days away.

Might have to take this challenge.......

I'll have to grow mine in sprit.

The wife is an AVID hater of the stache, so much so that I was threatened to be cutoff from a certain activity that I enjoy if I kept growing mine a few years back.  8)

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.
