at least it's not just us?
Scrape the frost off the car and pour some hot coffee if you're headed out early! We'll be sitting in the 30s until 8am, winds out of the southeast at 10mph- and climbing. 45 degrees by 10am, but it'll still feel about 5 degrees cooler with the wind chill. By 10am, winds will have gone up to a steady 15mph with gusts up to 20mph (loose paper blows about, small twigs scatter across the ground).
Remember it's an 11 o-clock CT start! Partly sunny skies and 49 degrees for the start of the game. Winds will have picked up to 15mph, gusts up to 20mph (small trees sway), still out of the southeast.
Warming up just a bit with more clouds building in- but no rain! Mostly cloudy and 52 by halftime, and those SE winds are still climbing. 17mph winds, complete with gusts up to 25mph (empty plastic garbage cans tip over, you can hear the wind "whistling").
Hitting 54 degrees around game's end with mostly sunny skies. SSE winds continue with a steady 17-18mph flow, and gusts remain up to 25mph (you need to use effort to walk against the wind). Winds will stay up through the night into early afternoon Sunday. Temperatures stay mild with all that warm air streaming in- staying in the 50s throughout the entire night, just touching in the upper 40s before Sunday's sunrise. Cloud cover decreases in the evening for partly cloudy skies, which will continue into tomorrow- dry, but windy, conditions whether you're leaving for home after the game or Sunday.
If you're staying home... Not quite as warm (we'll see the warmer, windier weather Sunday) as Iowa, but still a fantastic day! Temperatures in the upper 20s until 9am (yep, it's November), then warming quickly to 42 degrees by noon. Ann Arbor will see a high of 51 degrees, with mostly sunny skies. Winds will be out of the southeast at about 10mph all day. By 9pm, mostly clear skies let us get back down into the 30s, so grab that coat as you're headed out for some late-night celebrating! Go Blue and have safe travels, or fun watching here at home! And don't forget to turn your clocks back!

The "Upon Further Review" reports for both offensive and defensive plays in the Purdue game are now available for viewing with the enhanced UFR viewer web app. Video links are provided for all plays. Sorry for the delay in posting these, but I have been out of town on vacation with limited time and remote access.
Anyway, they are available, as always, at the following web page:
Enjoy and Go Blue!
If you go to:
The front page has a pretty funny headline. They hate Nickelback just as much as everyone else. My buddy is a big Bama fan and I was telling him about Detroit's petition about Nickelback playing at halftime. He thought it was hilarious and said how much they are hated at his blog too.
And then today when we got to work he went to his blog and this appeared. This is funny as hell. 1 Nickelback song per win. Too funny.
My two favorite blogs on the same podcast. Should be good:
From this morning's Wall Street Journal. Pretty nice summary of the oversigning numbers for Alabama and LSU the last few years as well as some of the potential changes to discourage it.
Also included this quote from LSU...
Michael Bonnette, an LSU spokesman, said that since the school's current coach, Les Miles, arrived, the school's signing classes have been "either at the NCAA limit of permitted enrollees or just one or two above." He said LSU has "in no way benefited from signing more players than other programs."
Bad news, guys. Just saw a commercial for 3 Doors Down playing at the Huntington Center in Toledo this Saturday. The opening act will in fact be Pop Evil themselves. Their popularity grows. How long can we hold back the tide?
