Stormy weather, baby!  

I predict an extremely destructive series of CYCLONES to wrak havoc on the politically incorrect Injuns.

shgtbftr - My wife asks if there would be any objection to our going over to J'ville to watch the workout?

Oldfan: It sounds like another "Perfect Storm" is set to hit Chambana on the Saturday after Turkey Day. What are the odds that natural disasters could hit a specific target three times in four years? It sounds like the makings of Global warming!  gocycs.gif  gocycs.gif  gocycs.gif

The Lord got on the horn to confirm with Coach Leonard that gametime was 1:00 PM and made the necessary adjustments...

Very DEFINITELY CYCLONE WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!

I've mind to suggest a new nickname for the politically incorrect Indians.

What d'y'all think of "Riders on the Storm" ?

This was not mentioned, but what a difference 24 hours makes! Great weather on game day, about 42 with light winds, compared to 24 hours later. 3 inches of snow, 25 mph winds and continued snow fall. I don't think it would have changed the outcome, but you never know.

Okay OSU, with the comment you just made, I can think of the scene in the movie Patton when the clergyman wrote a prayer for good weather to allow our troops to be successful. Do you think the IHSA has any extra medals laying around?
