I meant to post this before the ND game, but I am still interested in finding out. My manager at work is an ND fan and claimed he "had no choice because he was Catholic." I was wondering how many mgobloggers out there have fought the urge to join in the tradition of mediocrity and root for the Wolverines as Catholics.
As an aside, the expression on my managers' face when I mentioned Saturday's game was priceless and his misery was delicious.
FCS SUCCESS AGAINST FBS
• Already in 2010, six FCS schools (formerly Division I-AA) have
beaten FBS schools. Those six victories are highlighted by UMass’
fellow CAA member James Madison beating No. 13 Virginia Tech,
21-16, last weekend.
• JMU was just the second FCS school to ever beat a ranked FBS
school. The first was Appalachian State upsetting No. 5 Michigan,
34-32, on Sept. 1, 2007 at Michigan Stadium.
• CAA teams have 10 wins against FBS opponents in the last five
years. JMU’s victory last week was the first of 2010, but in 2009,
four CAA teams beat FBS teams.
• The other FCS teams to beat FBS teams this season are: Jacksonville
State over Ole Miss (49-48, 2OT), North Dakota State over Kansas
(6-3), South Dakota over Minnesota (41-38), Gardner-Webb over
Akron (38-37), and Liberty over Ball State (27-23).
Found this while strolling around the Umass blog, which is better than many blogs I have seen for some big time FBS teams. Although it is still horrible.
If someone could embed this that would be great.
Rogers is really playing well.
I hope this was not posted earlier.
This week I've completely redrawn the top of Notre Dame's Hesburgh Library mosaic to make Touchdown Jesus signal "no good" (or incomplete). The stone textures and colors were all recreated using a reference photo of the original and have been enhanced for use on desktops, iPads and mobile phones.
The image below is a preview only. You can get this week's high resolution wallpaper at The Art. The Art. The Art!.
I am designing a new Michigan Football 2010 schedule wallpaper every Monday this season. I'm focusing the content of each wallpaper on Michigan's opponent and making widescreen, 4:3, iPad and mobile versions every week.
Why? Because I'm a little obsessed with Michigan football and a little obsessed with design and very obsessed with Michigan football-related design. Also, I wanted to always have the schedule handy. I decided to make a new wallpaper every week so that I wouldn't get sick of the same picture and am taking the "make fun of opponent mascot, history & tradition" approach because it is fun to make fun of opponents. I am making these public because I know of at least one person (other than my wife) who likes the idea. Feel free to pass on the link if you think anyone besides me, my friend and my wife will like this.
