Personal Opinion: I don't think that the board views football above the administration of the University; that being said, I do think that they have a STRONG desire for the two to get along, and would make literal moves (behind closed doors) to make sure that happens, even if it means one or the other "finds a new job."  So I'm still on the health issues bandwagon.

Had Bomb shelter a few times, it's on a different level!

Cottage Inn and Domino's both get a dishonorable mention due to the location of their headquarters.

Exactly, that's the great thing about good food, is the memories that it brings up.

I also think Ohio is pretty blessed in the pizza world being between New York and Chicago, not to mention the rich Italian history scattered throughout the state.

I like this kind of banter, no problem with supporting your school/team.  Also, if it isn't in passing, you can have a great convo around college football with someone who isn't wearing the scarlet tinted glasses and get some insight of what we look like outside looking in.  Had an awesome conversation with a Clemson fan at WDW last year because of it.

A few games for me; As much as I hate losing, the whipped dog/giving up attitude is what does it for me more.  I hate when we are losing and give up.

V Clemson, both games

V. Iowa

V Purdue

I have erased the years and scores from my mind, but the sting remains.

Just wanted to add to your thought here,  Watched a documentary from when one of the first protesters of Chief Illiniwek, (she herself was native) explained why she was protesting.  And her complaint was that the Chief was not a representation of a native tribe, i.e. paying homage like the Seminole at FSU, but rather a caricature of natives, which she, and others were offended by.

Talked to a Clemson fan this fall, and he actually brought up this incident.  His explanation was that their team, (that year in particular) were a goofy bunch, and this dude in particular. That they all thought goosing and shit like that is hilarious.  My argument was, "ok, but that's your  team.  You don't do that to someone you don't know.

Pretty cool seeing everyone's stories of the snow day; "Back in my day, we..." 

Here's mine,  I think it was 2008, we got 20 inches between Friday and Saturday.  High St. was a ghost town for cars, because so few people could get anywhere.  My car at the time was a 2 door, RWD '92 Blazer. So of course we loaded it up and were driving it around.  That was a fun day.  Most snow I've ever seen come down at once.
