I am not a robot genius, so I urge you to check the comment threads on the UFR posts, as they often contain useful disagreements, corrections, reinterpretations, and discussions that function as good content I don't have to write. The PSU offense thread is a good example.

If you just can't get enough PSU flickr has more pictures, including this beauty that frames the celebration perfectly. Check out sets from users tienmao and Andrew Morell.

Congratulations are in order for Bruce Ciskie, who got bumped up to the money gig in Duluth, Minnesota: college hockey. Don't forget the little people, Bruce.

Chris Perry is about three touchdowns away from being the most successful NFL running back from Michigan since... um. That one three-week burst during which Biakubutuka carried my fantasy team before getting Vince Cartered? Sure.
