Update time:

1.) Former WSU coach Jim Walden, now much hated by Wolverine nation, is a god for putting Florida at the top of his Harris Poll ballot. Oh, it's not that The Ford agrees with his rankings; claiming Florida is the best team in the country is completely bat-shit insane. No, it's that The Ford isn't sure whether he did it to extract revenge against Michigan for the 98 Rose Bowl, or just to make sure OSU wouldn't have a perfect BCS ranking. And any time you have two motives for revenge, equally compelling, well, you've gotta follow your heart and submit a bat-shit-insane ballot.

(Also, how cool it is that he's always described as "ex-WSU coach"? He actually left WSU for Iowa State, before returning to Cougar Nation a few years ago to do radio color commentary. He also has one of the best Cougar quotes of all time: this.)

2.) Based on recently received information, the soon-to-be Mrs. Modano is The Williford, not The Willa.

3.) Snow has fallen here in the 313. Already, the pigeon carcasses are tough to pick out in the drifts and snowbanks.

4.) The Ford will likely be rooting for the F'rojans in the Rose Bowl, if only because he hates the Wolverines slightly more. Though if it's anything like the F'rojans' game against the Fighting Irish, he'll probably spend most of his time vacillating between rooting for the F'rojans, rooting for a meteor strike, and hating himself for both actions.

5.) Mascots are cool. (OK, that wasn't really an update, but still, it's a good story.)

6.) The Ford's a travellin' man. Well, not yet, but he might be making a stop in your town soon!*

*Offer good only for those folks living in the Northwest in early January and those folks living in Syracuse in mid-February.
