    I wonder if Alridge and Allen will be back in time to play against USC?

    Was Allen hurt again? I saw him in the Wash. game and I saw him come out, but without the TV commentary, I didn't know the details.

    Another thing that sucks about seeing games live is the lack of instant replay.

    he writes for espnchicago.com

    ND is considered a local team for chicago, so it makes it onto that site.

    OK, here is my contribution to the___Football_____thread,


    Now, I am not a fanatic fan of football, but I have been known to hang out at IU,

    And, I always visit Bloomington, IN. for Home coming weekend,

    And this year there was also a Star Wars fan club meeting of the
    Hoosier Alliance.

    And so, it is kinda incidental that we (IU) beat (UI) if I have those right?

    Anyway, To learn more about that visit the HA web site here,

    http://www.hoosieralliance.com/index.html

    or

    click below to go straight to the latest podcast,

    ok, back to football?.maybe,

    maybe not, I should note that on the day of the meeting there
    was a pre-meeting Endor hike,

    ok, but back to football,

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/Hoosier%20Alliance/IMG_1875.jpg]



    ok, maybe not. Sure, it was homecoming weekend, but I never did get to the game,

    was at a Star Wars meeting instead:)

    but,

    There was the homecoming parade!

    Hope that counts, cause that is what you are gonna get[face_skull]

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/Hoosier%20Alliance/IMG_1898.jpg]

    and of course these little mini-cars had their own wrecker along
    just in case anyone had a mechanical

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/Hoosier%20Alliance/IMG_1876.jpg]



    I also attracted this group of girls, who all really seemed happy to see me,

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/Hoosier%20Alliance/IMG_1884.jpg]


    anyway, it was a lot of fun, and I really like listening to the band up close,
    Here I think is a cool photo that shows off the band and campus at the same time.

    [image=http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a94/MusicTrooper/Hoosier%20Alliance/IMG_1907.jpg]



    But mostly????.it was really really really raining,
    Which is kinda funny as last year the parade was canceled due to fear of rain,
    Then no rain, and this year they guessed no rain and got rain.


    And so, if I do say so myself, I got this really great photo that shows,
    That it was really really rainging??.but that did not stop anyone
    From going nuts, during the parade/pep rally!

    Ok, that is my college/star wars football report.

    Wait, IU has a football team?


    Our IRISH fight on to win another game this week. Another nail-biting close game against the only other catholic team in D 1A football (right?)

    Another bad streak is broken, as BC had won the previous 6 games in a row.

    This week we play Washington State in San Antonio, Texas in a late 7:30PM game. I hope we can break another streak...the past 6 games have all been within 7 points.

    we need to win big this weekend. Clausen is in the top 3 for the heisman.

    USC killed his chances at a Heisman. He may get to make the trip like Quinn did, but in the end, disappointment.

    If they finish the rest of the season with high scoring games, it is possible. But their weak schedule will hurt him.

    especially against WSSU, Navy, Pitt, UConn, and Havard of the West (which they are getting a lot stronger and better as a team)
