How do you tell the world where you plan to attend to play college football at? Well, Carlos Watkins and Trojans got a little creative on Friday night.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
“Trees” by Joyce Kilmer

The pictures are flying in. They’re coming from everywhere from Maine to Missouri and from Texas to Tennessee. The hunt is on. Bears and birds, ducks and deer; it seems that most hunters are filling tags and freezers. And the next two months will probably be even better as the ducks move south and the deer begin to rut.
