"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."

Phantom touchdown redux - Carlyle Holiday fumbled the ball at the 1 and was awarded a touchdown.

I've got you covered. I live in Ypsi and have a mic, stand, and powered mixer you can use. Do you need anything other than just me showing up at like 3:30?

I always put two spaces after a period and am a fanatical supporter of the Oxford Comma. How do these affect my chances?

Gargamel is PISSED tonight.

Let's hope the Fords go with the obvious move here - Art Shell.

I liked Beckmann a lot more when I was 12 years old and knew nothing about him.

He'll fax in his refusal for the use of his likeness on the eve of the game's release.

I am constantly impressed by the dedication of our staff and volunteers (nearly 6,000 different people annually) to the mission. I have never been a part of a workforce like this and I consider it a privilege be involved.
I suddenly feel I should point out that I'm not on the clock right now.

I can confirm that we did get subs and it was indeed crazy. Major thanks to Subway! With the help of our partner agencies we have already distributed several hundred subs to the hungry folks in Washtenaw County.

The giveaway of it being made-for-TV is the font used for the credits is the same one used for every TV show/movie for something like a 10 year span back then.
You can really see hints of Jaws in that film, not to mention hints of Spielberg's face in the car's rear view mirror.

I know you said peaches not strawberries, but I'm now picturing Gordon Gee as Captain Queeg.
EDIT - Meant as a reply to RedGreene. Crap.

Last time I tuned in there was talk of him tying the knot recently(!). And here I thought arranged marriages were passé...

You can't win with that windbag. I'm supposed to drive my buddy H.R. to a job interview in East Lansing tomorrow anyway.

Denard was not smiling, just completely fired up with a nasty look in his eye. That may be the first time I've ever seen him like that.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||That was fishy.||
And then there was Toussaint catching a poorly thrown swing pass for a loss of 1 when he should have dropped it to stop the clock. We had to burn our last timeout as a result. Hard to expect that of a player in that situation, though.

His name is Dantonio, not D'Antonio, and he is a good coach, but he's also been nothing but a condescending jackass and he deserves every bit of butthurt he's getting.

The WVU-Baylor game was like watching a baseball game with no strikeouts and a bunch of errors. I like some sound defense at least a few times a game.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Whoops||
You're right of course. Not sure what I was thinking there.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||History||
It's mostly a rivalry of historical significance, which admittedly doesn't mean a whole lot in the here and now. I think for Notre Dame it's about several things. There's the bitterness from when Michigan refused to play them for 35 years and there's always being second-best in all-time wins behind the school that they've tried to mimic for well over a century, and still not having been to a BCS bowl.
For me it's about a lot of things. Private v. Public schools, Big Ten/Midwest v. their quasi-independent status and national footprint, the sanctimonious words of guys like Paul Hornung ("ND needs to lower it's academic standards in order to get the black athlete"), and preferential treatment from the NCAA, BCS, and now ACC (and they still haven't made a BCS bowl!)
I suppose it is mostly just another game that gets more attention due to the history behind it, but I'm with Brian - they're the perfect foil.
