Boilermakings Is Really Thinking Football

This is the last non-college football weekend for some time. I already have plans to go to seven home games, the Illinois game, and either the Minnesota of Iowa game so I can add a new Big Ten Stadium. There is a chance I will miss the Michigan game if tickets to Mrs. T-Mill's Hurricanes against Notre Dame in Chicago can be had on the cheap. The only game I have totally ruled out going to is at Notre Dame, because I refuse to give that school a single cent of my money after the disaster of two years ago. I would rather take the irs exam to become a tax preparer.

So, today's links are heavily skewed towards football:
