FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
Capital One Bowl
The Capital One Bowl did something pretty cool tonight and live tweeted their meeting. No surprise here but seems we have a great worst case scenario as Michigan appears to be their first B1G choice.

While the bye week is good for the team and getting people healthy, personally I am having difficulty with it. There is still the bad taste in my mouth from the Iowa game, and all I want is to cleanse my palate with a UM win. But, sadly, I wont get that for at least another week.
So, my question is: what are you all doing to cope with the bye week today? Is it a Wife Day, like Six Zero, or something different? Going to the bar to watch some other good match-ups from around the country? Photoshopping Lloyd Brady a little more?
Personally, I will be spending my Saturday reflecting on glories past. I will be watching the Capital One Bowl victory over Florida, the overtime wins against State, the 2008 Wiscy game, and the 2005 Penn State game, to name a few. I plan on using this Saturday to bask in the past, and renew my hopes for this year and years to come.
Please share your Saturday plans, and maybe help some others find ways to deal with the off-week.
I've been trying for months to try and find the intro to the 2008 Capital One Bowl-- it was phenomenal and one of the best "redemption" meme videos I've ever seen, especially given the outcome of the game against Florida.
This beginning can be seen in the first 14 seconds of this hype video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niB-naNtmv4&NR=1
Does anyone have any idea where I might find it, or if it is posted in its entirety somewhere? All the Ten Yard Torrents of the game show the entirety of the game, but none of the pregame hype video by ABC.
Would be incredibly grateful if anyone could help me out with this!
For the hardcore Michigan fan...
Found the game in raw 720p HD thanks to a friend. Will be posting a new widescreen DVD of it, a 768x432 .mp4, and a 720p .mp4 on mgovideo.com later this weekend.
