    He must be having trouble with: (1.) Bad breath. (2.) Acne. (3.) Erectile dysfunction. (4.) According to a number of Milford’s cheerleaders, all of the above.

    Cliff, you’re on the right track, but I think it’s B.O. It would be a lot less noticeable in a gym filled with sweaty athletes, which is why Bobby would go there to get away from his problem.

    Gil has the bad breath, why else would Marty be offering a stick of gum.

    Maybe as a preteen Fowler attended a Second Mile Foundation camp.

    Past tragedy that Fowler has to overcome. Was in an accident that killed someone? Lost a sibling? Lost a parent? Killed a parent? Heartbreak of psoriasis? Well, we’ll find out soon enough – some time in January.

    Maybe Young Fowler was cornered by Doyle Dane and was traumatized by The Shamrock Shake. Marty looks good, maintaining that trim drinking physique.

    Sounds like young Fowler has trouble at home. My guess is an alcoholic father or a Cougar of a mother who has invited some of his teammates over for post-game ‘parties’

    I’m guessing Fowler is a transfer who just moved in from New Zealand. Adjustment problems. He’s never played basketball before but he will contribute immediately.

    Thorp BETTER take this team on a deep run into the playdowns or he should be fired immediately! Too long without any significant success.

    Something seems a little odd about P3. It looks like maybe Neal and Rod pulled out some stock footage and used it again or outsourced some sketching. The artwork in the three panels just doesn’t seem to match up.

    Fowler, eh? As in Jim Fowler of Wild Kingdom fame? Might be traumatized by a wrestling match with a giant anaconda that his Grandpa orchestrated!

    Thor P has about as much chance of being ousted as JoePa at Penn St. He will stay there to become ThorPa

    Maybe like Ted Striker, Fowler will never get over Macho Grande.

    I have a novel idea… if Fowler is not playing well, cut him from the team. Making the team should be good motivation for Mannequin Boy. It might also cut down on this season’s drama, and we can focus in on important things like Doyle.
