There are 6 autobids for winning your conference available. There is 1 autobid that is guaranteed to not be a team in the top 16 of Pairwise Rankings so this year it's really a top 15 or better as the absolute threshold for having a chance. All 5 other conferences have at least 1 team that is in that top 16 already who could win their conference and not take away an at large.

Couldn't agree more. That game is Exhibit A for the "anything can happen in a one game contest" mantra. That ND team was stacked.

Was on campus at NIU recruiting interns back in 2008 when that happened there. It's such a travesty. They were bringing victims into the building where I happened to be in to start giving them medical treatment. It was pure shock for all of us.
Like the OP said, it's things like this that make us realize how insignificant a decommitment is. Stay safe everyone at Purdue.

OSU is #18. Cincy is #16.

We got 3 parking passes but will only need 2 of them. My buddies want to try to sell it there for like 30.00 but if anyone wants it for 25.00 and is local to Ann Arbor/metro Detroit, they can have it for that. I'd rather save someone on the board some money who missed the deadline. Email at email@example.com if you want it.

Didn't feel it warranted it's own thread but Dan Cleary signed/will sign with the Flyers for a 3 year deal worth 2.75M per year. Link: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=681912#&navid=nhl-search

My buddy seems convinced it will go to Gardner. I was pretty skeptical. However, there is this: http://www.mden.com/shopping/product.cgi?ADJ1320+1500. Apparently they are selling them in stores already. Seems like it would have to be more than just bringing the jersey out of retirement. My money is on it going to a prominent player. Put me down for Gardner as my guess.

I went to visit my cousin at VA Tech years ago for a game. They have a cheer when they are getting near the goal line something akin to "ohhh ohhh, ohhh ohhh, stick it in, stick it in, stick it in." I even saw it on the back of some t-shirts at the Sugar Bowl we played against them. By far the strangest cheer I've heard.

Was just about to post this. What a steal for the Wings. NHL.com link: http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=680504. Not sure it gives much info but an option for those spurning the Freep.

How many does he need? Someone on this board bought all 4 of mine for that game and I think he only needs 2 of the 4.

I'm in Ann Arbor and went 0-2.

Tell me more about this Federov guy. Did he play with Linstrom?
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Both Pavel and Z will hang||
Both Pavel and Z will hang from the rafters one day. Datsyuk is probably still the best combination of offense talent and defensive skill in the game. And even without another Cup (which hopefully isn't the case) his jersey will go up as well as Zetterberg's jersey. You don't have to just take my word for it. Ask Wayne Gretzky who said "“I think Zetterberg is the best player in the game (at his age),” Gretzky told NHL.com. “He’s been so physically beat up from the Stanley Cup playoffs, Olympics – all that goes with that – but he’s just very special.”
If the Great One is noticing I can promise others notice as well. Link: http://redwings.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=653805

|1 year 2 weeks ago||Agreed. That's what I said||
Agreed. That's what I said in the other thread. As close as they were to each other in getting posted, at least I beat the other one by a minute or so. Would have looked even dumber had the 2 been reversed.

Wow. My thread is basically useless now.

I have 4 additional tickets for The Game next to the 2 I will be using. Section 33 - Row 77. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||It's likely just a section||
It's likely just a section that they place recent graduates in. StubHub doesn't allow people to list tickets that have restrictions unless those restrictions are explicitly stated in the listing ie: they don't allow student tickets on the site at the Big House. They might if they are validated but normal student tickets are not allowed.

We should probably give Kugler a shot first before Krugler.

Fleury and Brodeur have both been left off of the invite list.

I definitely think Quick gets the starting spot as well. Howard has a shot at it but with the way Quick has played the last 2 years he's definitely on the outside looking in. I think Callahan or Brown get the C though.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Here's what you need to do.||
Here's what you need to do. I was just at the ticket office and this is the ONLY way I was able to bring up the ticket packs. My the "my account" page click on buy tickets but don't select a sport. It should bring up a new page with all the sports listed. Select football. Then the 3-game pack should appear. That is the only way they could find it for me.
Also: OSU was down to single tickets only within minutes. Nebraska still has some available. There is far less selection this year available as they are going to use dynamic pricing for individual sales. So basically you aren't out of luck for getting tickets, just tickets priced somewhere near normal. Hope this helps everyone out who can't get through on the phone.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I'm having the same issue.||
I'm having the same issue. Last year it was an option under football tickets. Glad to know it's not just my account that isn't working. Hopefully they get this fixed asap. Phone lines are all busy at the ticket office and say "call back later" as if that is helpful.

Fixed. Thanks. Definitely was the smaller number.

This is what happens after Archie Manning boots you out of camp.

Spelling Alfredsson incorrectly I can let slide. Spelling Zetterberg incorrectly I cannot.

Dan Gibbs left the team after the spring. Can't really blame the kid considering the depth chart in front of him.
