Already hearing from droves of friends that they will not be attending the Ohio bloodbath later this month.  It's going to be so much fun to see more red than maize in the stands that day.  This will probably be our all time low point in that rivalry, or perhaps next year if Borges is still a Michigan employee.

...but here is the mood of the fanbase charted somewhat scientifically. Yes, "Angar" comes from a board reference. BTW, is it wrong that I laughed at the YouTube clip above?

I feel like I'm missing something with the axis' here. I would assume the -3 to 3 scaling on both axis' is relative to an average for all data points. Assuming that, I don't see why a huge thread with little amounts of cussing displays irritation. I would further argue that the Notre Dame game was the most hope inspiring game of the season. If anything that sounds like jubilation. Is that how this is presented?

You're looking at the normalized values (so the tick marks are standard deviations) for thread size and average z-score plotted here, but perhaps "Irritation" should be "Satisfied Or Somewhat Irritated" since both could appear in that quadrant. Like I said "somewhat scientific", and by that I meant "not really all that scientific".

Brian gave out the Fandom Endurance III badge for staying until the end of Northwestern '08, what do we get if we sit sober through the whole OSU game this year?
