I thought you were about to say UM was on the cover. Thank God. I don't want anything to do with it. The SI cover was forged in hell and anyone on it comes face to face with either an injury or a loss that week.
So what your saying is that Green Bay is going to lose next week and Mike Neal and Nick Collins are going to suffer season ending injuries!?
Sheesh. Tell me about it. Other than the 97 championship season, I can't remember the last time we won the week after being featured on Sports Illustrated. That cover truly is a curse.
As for this cover? I hate Green Bay but I'm happy for Woodson.
Aw, the poor pink-cleated lions
Huh. I got David Price of the Rays here on the West Coast.
Praise be his name!
Kirk Maltby broke the SI cover curse for me back in 97
We just finished a room in our basement. Can anyone guess what SI I found in storage and proceeded to frame? The quote is "Take that, Number 1 Michigan flattens Ohio State" and features one Marcus Ray blowing up David Boston. Ah, the memories.
... just awesome.
Better save some room for NEW memories. Ones that involve the best player in college football doing things nobody has ever seen before. Imagine you're a Chicago Bulls fan circa 1984....I think its kinda like that.
Awesome pic. Classy guy, donates to his school, and still amazing in the NFL.
"CHARLES WOODSON DOWN THE SIDELINE." 1997 OSU game call
I'll wait for an SI cover until we prove to the world we can stand with the "big dawgs" of the Big 10...er11....er 12?
Speaking of which...any word about a new logo being designed?
in a thriller or blow out trust me Denard will make the cover. Unless SC upsets Alabama.
After we win this week and are 6-0 you'll see us on more covers then you thought possible. The attention will rise to a new level.
It will be a tipping point for several reasons that clearly put us on the rise, especially compared to last year:
- Guaranteed a .500 season and a bowl game
- Beaten a nationally ranked rival midseason
Just got the new SI. Our cover here has David Price on it. He got shelled and they've just dropped 2 to the Rangers. The curse lives!
