"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Whew. I thought this one was on me frankly cause I wore a new shirt (the CW "believe" shirt from Mgoblog) to the game and NOT the one I wore to all our home games last year.
I think you could be onto something with the curse. It seemed like my 2 year old was spotting elephants in every children's book, puzzle, etc. yesterday. The first one I passed off saying "we're not rooting for elephants today." After a few instances, I actually started to worry she was jinxing the team.
Burn the witch!
She turned me into a newt!! . . . But I got better.
i knew i shouldn't have worn by mgobrian photobomb shirt.
I almost died last night watching that game, luckily I successfully turned Nick Saban into a horcrux when he worked at MSU.
from Austin TX had Bama plates! Wtf!?
I would have asked to trade!!
But my buddy from Austin rented the car.
Well we do have the SI curse too...though I am not a believer...I may become one.
I actually changed shirts after each Bama touchdown. Figured that was the problem. I gotta do some laundry.
Just the shirt? Aha, you needed to also changed your socks and shorts, then the ship would have been righted. I'm blaming you.
Sorry guys it's my fault. I wore the same shirt that I wore for the 2010 MSU game. Should've tossed it back then.
Brady Hoke has never lost to Alabama before the banner changed! Change it back!!
Curse of the ugly uniforms. I don't want to argue, but one has to be cognizant of the fact that the uglier the uniforms, the worse we play. This is a fact. Even against Notre Dame, we didn't play "well" until the end of the game; even then, we snuck through with a victory. I want to talk to the guy who was debating whether or not to buy this highlighter jersey before the game. I guess you have your answer, bud.
Can we stop knocking the uniforms. The ones you saw last night were basically chosen and designed by the players. If they liked them it's all that matters.
you're onto something here....
For Chrissakes, that's why you need adults around. Do you let your kids do anything they want simply because they want to? I can't think of a less valid reason.
Still haven't the hang of the old "Reply" button?
Sorry guys I wore my Denard jersey, which I wore to the Sugar Bowl where we had no offensive rhythm whatsoever. I should worn my Zoltan jersey, which I wore to the Nebraska game.
Bama fans were incredibly hospitable to Penn State fans who went to the game at Bama.
Maybe that is the way many of them are, although had we won, they might not have been so kind.
Over the years, I have run into an awful lot of fans from opposing schools who were hospitable when I was at away games, far more than the number of jerks, most of whom were drunkenly dysfunctional.
That the farther south you go the nicer the people are, but I think that excludes Florida. Folks in those southern states are simply nice and gentle people: gentlemen and southern belles.
Also, when you know your team is going to beat the crap out of the opponent, then why not be nice to the fans?
I wore a different hat than what I did last year. I thought for sure it was my faught. My conscience is now clear.
