I'm sure there will be another thread for the actual game. I'm interested in the food and drink choices for the night. I'm drinking a variety of different Bell's beer. I picked up Winter White, Amber Ale, and Oarsman Ale. Almost got the Kalamazoo stout, but decided against it. As for food, I'm eating whatever people show up with! Enjoy folks, and go Niners!
Here we go! Who you got?

According to various media outlets Texas Longhorns OC Major Applewhite engaged in “inappropriate, consensual behavior with an adult student” while at the 2009 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
It is unclear why this is currently coming to light in the media reporting. Nonetheless, it is currently in the cycle.
"Several years ago, I made a regretful decision resulting in behavior that was totally inappropriate,” Applewhite said in a statement. “It was a one-time occurrence and was a personal matter.”
AD DeLoss Dodds:
“Major Applewhite engaged in inappropriate, consensual behavior with an adult student one time during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl activities. After learning of his behavior later that month, I took immediate action to review the situation. We promptly initiated an inquiry with assistance from the university’s Legal Affairs office and other units outside of Athletics.
Major admitted his inappropriate conduct and he was disciplined. In determining appropriate discipline, we analyze the facts and circumstances surrounding the behavior and its relation to job responsibilities. Major fully accepted his discipline, including counseling.
We have high standards for behavior and expect our staff andcoaches to adhere to them in all aspects of their lives. I believe that the appropriate discipline was taken in this case.”
The NCAA Softball Preseason Rankings were released this week. It is not a surprise that 'Bama is #1. They have a star-studded team and returns Jr. Pitcher Jackie Traina. Now I do not think Jackie is the best overall pitcher in the country; but she has excellent control and gets many batters to swing at outside pitches. Teams will become more patient against her this year.
I will be previewing the Big Ten Season in another post tomorrow. Coach Hutch did a great job recruiting so we will be better than last year.
Here is the Top 5.
4. Arizona State
No other Big Ten Team cracks the Top 20. It is good to see La-Laf get some love at #11. They played well last year and have many returning players this year.
Another team that is somewhat of a surprise to some is Hofstra at #20. Hofstra came out of no where last year and had some very impressive wins.
It is good to see the girls from Knoxville getting back into the Top 10 @ #6
