I hate to be that guy, but I just can't help it: the verb Sam is looking for is forgo, not forego.
They're both actual words (and thus make it past a spell check), but the former means to abstain or go without, the latter means to precede or go before.
Sorry to play grammar narc, but I'm a copy editor and it's hard to fight the urge.
As a great Faber College professor once said: "Hey, I'm not joking...this is my job!"

There's one from the '93 Rose Bowl v. UW that's always worth a chuckle. The camera catches a rear (end) view of Huskies OT Lincoln Kennedy in a three-point stance, causing Jackson to remark:
"And there's a moon rising over Pasadena."

Hall of Fame center Jim Otto wore 00 for the Raiders. Maybe the two Ts on his nameplate were real small.

Looks great, but I believe you missed our man from Massachusetts, Mr. Hurst.

like Willie Guy was at Iowa forever.

Haven't seen him on O, but am unsure if he's seen special-teams duty. If he hasn't, he should be with the Freshmen.

CBS Sportsline has the game time listed as 10 am on both the Michigan and Illinois team pages. The time is said to be listed in the user's own zone (Eastern, in my case) and the Iowa game is listed correctly as 12 pm. There is no corresponding story explaining what would be a rather peculiar start, so I figure it's probably just a mistake.
No cause yet (other than habit) to start pregaming before dawn.

George "The Animal" Steele actually played Tor Jonson in the movie "Ed Wood."

You're not alone. I enjoy the mix of the CCHA, and would miss seeing teams like Lake St., Miami and Alaska.

I'm with ya. Morgan seems born to be a linebacker, and brings to mind guys like Steve Morrison and Erick Anderson. Not saying he'll be as good, but he's got some of their genes.
Plus, it's hard to dislike a kid who had to shovel his parent's driveway before he could fax his LOI.

One of the two anchors, Matt Oberg, is a Michigan Man. He's also funny as hell.

Durham apparently committed to Kent State.
