Maybe ading Rutgers wasn't such a bad idea...Good work Steve Politi of NJ.com! The logic? Caddyshack, which is as good as reason as any. I was also impressed that the Steve recognized the issues Scary Pete, Popcorn Skunk, and Not Even A Bird have and docked them accordingly.

Jerrysota is the theme for this year's student season ticket t-shirt. It's a pretty good looking shirt. I have to say, I miss getting one of these with student season tickets.

Just one more item checked off the list as we continue our march toward kickoff. I'm going to have worked myself into a tizzy by the time the season starts for real."

HATS OFF to Brock for reaching the pinnacle of his profession! Yes, the outcome of the matches are scripted. But you don't magically get a chance at a scripted title. It still takes hard work and effort to convince the higher ups in pro wrestling that they should give you a shot because there is a lot of money riding on who holds this belt.

Check out the analysis of what this means (and why Brock winning could be special even in terms of the "fake" world of wrestling) in the above link.

My name is GoAUpher, I am tall, and I approve this message.

Seriously though, the thought of a 6'10" pass catching tight end is an enjoyable on. I'm just picturing the mismatches around the goal line.
