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...

Another vote for the Dark Tower series.  All seven (eight?) books were great reads.

It's a great honor, but couldn't Coach Mick get a little amp'd up for such an accomplishment?.../s

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.

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..
