Ride The Float! rough


I was thinking about the Herd riding their momentum into today’s game against East Carolina and since its homecoming weekend, the idea of the float came quickly. It will be fun doing the decorated float, the toilet paper, etc.

At first I was going to have the flatbed by itself, getting ready to run over a Pirate, but its not so much about the Pirates as it is about Marshall being prepared to go up against the defending conference champs.
Also, the idea of a float not being towed seemed a bit awkward. So, I’ll draw a big pickup truck. Now I need a driver ... Coach Snyder.
I always thought would be kind of fun to do a caricture of him. I'll need to give myself plenty of time this week.
More later.
