On Prof. Crim Law's take home final (he is visiting from Michigan) appeared the following:
"David, a University of Michigan football fan, is in a sports bar in the state of Boalt, which borders on the state of Texas, on January1, 2005, where he is happily and loudly ridiculing the "dumb Longhorns" of Texas as the University of Michigan soundly defeats the University of Texas in the 2005 Rose Bowl. Suddenly and without warning, a Texas fan, "Vic," grabs David from behind and begins smashing David's head against the bar. To free himself, David uses his elbows and his superior Michigan strength to throw Vic off, causing Vic to fall backward and strike his head on a wooden table and then upon the tile floor."
Well since those of us from the State of Boalt are generally pacifists, and quite frankly inspired by W&V's contest, I think it's time settle this Cal-Texas-Michigan BCS nightmare with a friendly wager. I'll gladly cheer for any team wearing Blue and Yellow, which means, I'll cheer my heart out for the Wolverines of Michigan come January 1. I'm sure W&V will likewise cheer for anything Orange. Maybe I should have run this by him first, but where's the fun in that?
So gentle readers, as you get hammered after finishing finals, please take the time to suggest terms for the wager, and in doing so, at least make a veiled reference to whatever conference you're school's in or geographically encompasses you just so we can tell biases. Not that they won't be self-evident.
