Found this linked on Fark.com last week. If I had read the book/seen the movie, it probably would make a lot of sense...
Before it was a bad movie, it was a good book...
Another vote for the Dark Tower series. All seven (eight?) books were great reads.
I never made it to Papa Joe's (the only campus bar that I couldn't get into before 18) but I spent many a 'Quarter Pitcher Night' at Co-Eds and Maxwells. .
It's a great honor, but couldn't Coach Mick get a little amp'd up for such an accomplishment?.../s
Can't speak for the [Mod Edit], but I wasn't offended by the God reference. I just noticed it (the edit) and decided it was a great time to throw a #gifjab your way.
As would Warren Moon...

For me, it would depend on program that I'm running.
If we're talking about an established national brand, then yeah, I'd probably steer clear of the big name match-ups because there isn't much upside to playing them. I'll pack my stadium (read: make my $$$) regardless of the opponent and running the table is always easier than playing the "quality loss" game.
If I'm starting a program from the ground up, then I'd schedule as many "Big Boys" as I can get. The payouts from schools like OSU/Bammer/FSU, the publicity of being on ESPN virtually every week, and the potential for a huge upset would all provide long term benefits that an upstart program needs. Plus, when my program eventually becomes a "Big Boy", we can act like we've been there before. (/convergence)
"Act like you've been there"
$EC fans are pretty bad at it, too.
resiliency - thousands of athletes, coaches & broadcasters making the same mistake doesn't make it a word.
One can be resilient, or display resilience, but cannot show his/her resiliency.

Its hard to remember actual penalties but I remember the no-calls the most.
#9 OSU v #3 PSU in The Shoe, October 28, 2008.
PSU - 0 penalties for 0 yards
We got homered at home..
Christina has at least a couple redeeming assets...
