Did anyone else have the impression that MSC may have tailgates a little too much before the game. That was a hot mess.

Here's your link (finally)

Like many others,  I was initially concerned that she had had some sort of cerebral event (i.e. stroke) and that's why she was retiring.  But after seeing her goofy smile on the jumbo screen,  and especially after re-watching on YouTube,  my diagnosis : 2 or 3 or 4 too many pre-game rum 'n ciders.

It's really too bad someone in her entourage didn't look out for her and just say she was ill or something. Unfortunate way to go out after a pretty positive run as prez.

We were debating whether she was hammered or just trying to talk slowly so she could be understood through the speakers. Leaning towards hammered though, which most students found quite comical.

video please.  This and eventual coaches being fired (which will happen, for sure, absolutely, no doubt, no delay) are the only good things to come out of today.

But only if I can see it.

Ask any of the 110,000 of us who were at the game.  She was wasted, but not to the point where she was staggering. One big issue was apparently they didn't tell her ahead of time they were doing this little ceremony.  She even started her slurred comments by saying that.  It was embarassing, not just for her personally, but the school too.

EDIT: sorry for the double post.

That was one of the most awkward things I've ever seen. She didn't even get an ovation after she spoke because nobody had any idea what the hell just happened.

but there was a "12" jersey out there with her name on it and for a second, I thought of Devin when he was number 12 and got all nostalgic....
also, she did say they surprised her with the ceremony, which could account for the extra glass of wine....
