Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?

our nation turns its lonely eyes to you...
Well, Homecoming week is over (lost to Mt. Pleasant Sacred Heart) and I can breathe again. Meetings every day and helping with the class of 2011 float (voted best, yet once again) made last week a hectic one. I'm not complaining though, better to have things to do than to not, as my gaffer used to say.
Big Ten football thoughts...The University of Michigan may well be asking for trouble by scheduling schools with less than one tenth of their enrollment in these contests. Why? it may be asked. Rabid maize and blue fanatics will retort with Why not? I liken it to why I don't arm wrestle with my students. If i win, i'm supposed to win, i weigh 260 pounds for crying out loud. But if I lose, i lost to a kid. If Michigan beats Toledo or Appalachian State or even Deleware State, they're supposed to. They still can maul each other in the endzone, pound their chests as gorillas do, the announcers can get crazy like it's the Rose Bowl, etc. But, and that's a big but - albeit an appropriate one - if they lose, wtf? Don't get it.
Spartan Nation enjoyed another Big 10 victory as MSU chalked up 24 unanswered points in their victory over Northwestern. Iowa is still undefeated and four teams are in the AP Top 25. Nice seeing Ohio State lose, wasn't it?

Detroit Lion thoughts...
