that is nice bonus change
For those of you watching football tonight, this is the game on ESPN. If you're like me, this game is also how you plan to finish out a nice weekend because football.

In advocacy of the current pressing lemon denial trend, and since it's Labor Day (a day on which Brian worked) I present to you, in the spirit of "the team" here on the blog, the MgoBlog Lemon Challenge.
I've manned up and eaten my lemon, which was considerably less painful than the last seven years, book-ended by App State disaster and blow-out, which this lemon represents, and the latter of which Brian's auspicious lemon wager brings to closure.
Perhaps we all need to eat the lemon, as well as the bad memory, served up this weekend -- and the whole era Hoke has hopefully brought us out of -- consume it whole together and move on.
So here's my lemon.
I nominate sinsoftheschafer, Jon06, and Darker Blue -- OPs of three of the lemon threads below -- to take the challenge. You have 24 hours to complete this challenge.
Anyone who chooses not to eat a lemon may opt to donate to Beveled Guilt. Perhaps if we join to rally for awareness of this issue, we can appeal to Brian's good humor and bring in the Notre Dame finale week with a good show of the blog, the blog, the blog together.
**I created this thread since the ND academic investigation & consequences are likely to be a significant & specific source of conversation leading up to our game with them this week. Rather than have people dig deep into the general game week thread, I figured this would be easeir. Mods, feel free to delete or edit if necessary....**
Notre Dame announced that the fact-finding part of the investiation is over, and that some or all of the cases will be sent to the univeristy honor code panel for a final determination. No word yet, but my understanding is this will happen prior to Saturday.
Any rampant predictions or rumors?
How much will this impact our game with them on Saturday? Obviously if key starers are held out it hurts ND, but if they are somehow cleared early, how rusty will they actually be? Folks on ND boards are saying that the suspended players are still working out and attending meetings & film sessions with the team, but not actually putting on pads and running drills. Will this even matter?
Once any official news comes out, somebody else can create a fresh thread.
EDIT: Learning the ropes of creating new threads. Rather than making this the entire thread on this issue, Mods have helpfully told me it's all about the time stamp. In that case, I'm letting this be the repository for rampant speculation and then if/when real news comes out Tuesday or Wednesday, etc. somebody else can post up a fresh thread w/ links to the real news.
