Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Getting married on Friday is an excellent suggestion. My wife and I got married the Friday before the MSU game last year. It's nice to have two full days to recover instead of just one, and as others have mentioned, Fridays are generally less expensive for venues.
Open seating (if you can swing it) is also a great suggestion. It's fun watching people come together and create new friendships, and it also saves you the aggrivation of trying to remember which cousins should not sit near each other under any circumstances.
I found that suits work out better than tuxes. For a little bit more (and Jos. A. Bank will always do the buy 1 get 2 free for weddings, even if the sale isn't currently going on) than the cost of renting a tux, everyone gets to buy a suit. People really appreciated having a suit to take home instead of just renting a tux for the day.

I second that. Due to her sheer awesomeness (and Jennie Ritter's on the mound as well) during that NC year, Sam Bam has to top the list.

1 and 2 get double byes, 3 and 4 get one. 5 plays 8 and 6 plays 7 in first round. The winners play 3 and 4 and those winners advance to semis against 1 and 2. This is how the West Coast Conference runs its conference basketball tournament.

First annual gets me every time. I would love to explain to everyone who misues it what annual means, but I don't have that kind of time.

It's in the glove box, along with the road maps and ice scraper.

My parents had dropped me and my sister off at the game. My mom called just as Michigan was getting the onside kick to say they were ready for us whenever we wanted leave. I couldn't hear a word she was saying, so we stayed. I will never forget the experience of that 4th quarter and overtime.

In case of ties, the standings list the team with best overall winning percentage first without taking tiebreakers into account. So Michigan's 21-2 (.913) is better than Indiana's 20-3 (.870), which in turn is better than MSU's 19-4 (.826).

Addazio is leading Temple through its first season in the Big East. Frank Solich is the head man at OHIO.

NYD 2012 is on a Sunday with the major bowl games being played January 2. NYD 2013 is a Tuesday, so bowl games would be played as normal on January 1.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Saving the timeout||
I was surprised (and my apologies if this has been covered elsewhere) that UM didn't hustle up to the line after Roundtree's catch and spike it to save the timeout. You lose a shot at the end zone that way (so maybe that was the thinking), but it would have allowed the run to be an option before 4th and goal.

Excellent Liar, Liar reference. One of Jim Carrey's best.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Not at all||
I agree with the others who have replied to this. I will assuredly give you Alabama and LSU. Maybe Arkansas, depending on which team shows up for Bobby Petrino. Beyond that, the SEC isn't much better than the B1G. The SEC folks will try to tel you that their conference is best because anyone can beat anyone (like how Vandy should have beaten Arkansas). In reality, what this means is that the SEC has two outstanding teams, one really good one, and nine who fall somewhere in between mediocre and awful. So no, the B1G's best would not get drilled by the SEc's fourth best team.

|3 years 33 weeks ago||It will matter||
It will matter a great deal if both the SEC champ (LSU or Alabama) and Oklahoma stay undefeated. UW won't pass either of them. And if Georgia is East champ at 10-2 and Boise stays undefeated, I'm not sure UW passes Boise either. Badgers don't have a win in OOC to hang their hat on.

Excellent Simpsons reference. Well done, sir. Well done.

That was the biggest "statement" game from that decade. From the moment Glen Steele dropped the quarterback (his name escapes me at the moment) on the fake end around through the end of the game, simply the most dominant performance of a fantastic season.
