I bought my accommodations via Hotwire, not knowing that my dad bought one at the same time. We were planning on sharing a room and now have an extra. I paid $250ish for 4 nights at the Dallas Sheraton and will be stuck with an extra if I can't pawn it off on someone else. If anyone is interested in buying it at a discount, feel free to email me at [email protected] with an offer. But don't e-mail me if you have a history of trashing hotels rooms after Michigan wins huge football games.
Room is booked Sept 30 - Aug 2. Check in Thurs pm check out Sun am.

With "unprecedented" mentalities coming tomorrow for PSU, I can't see how Jim Delany has any other choice but to disband the 2-division set-up for football. Once PSU is banned from the post-season, in 2012 the Leaders division will have have 1/3 of its teams ineligible for the Championship game (OSU & PSU). With only 10 teams eligible and 3 of the best teams (UM, Nebraska & M$U) in the Legends division, it only makes sense to move (back) to a 10 team division where the top 2 eligible teams represent the conference in the championship.
Ted Sarniak, Terrelle Pryor's "mentor" and alleged Tressel bagman, passed away this weekend. Ohio State hiding behind FERPA laws and having it being upheld in Ohio Supreme Court never allowed the public to learn more about his relationship with Tressel.
In his obituary he refers to Terrelle Pryor as his "special son."
