Of course it can't be a real herndon thread without the video. The guy does what about 95% of male midshipmen think, and subsequently got hammered for it.

What am I supposed to be looking for on this?

Did I zone out somewhere?

Very sorry to say that I know this, but when the Supe's tent is empty during a game, it's because he and all his 3 star and above cronies are up in the sky box chowing down on free shrimp cocktail and imported beers.
