So true. We got engaged in early August and didn’t want a long engagement. If you’re gonna do it, do it.

I looked at a calendar and told my bride to be the earliest we could get married was the weekend between the NFL conference championship games and the super bowl. That year they had a week off in between those games. If not then, we could do it anytime after the Super Bowl.

It’s not that I’m a crazy fan who couldn’t go a weekend without some football (although that would not be easy). It was that I wanted my bride to be the center of attention as the bride should be. I didn’t want people distracted by some great game that was tied in the fourth quarter.

We got married the weekend between the conference championship games and the super bowl. Still going strong 22 years later.

No weddings during football season. Do it for the bride.

I'm so excited to have ND in the Dome. The 2003 game was a blast (a total whiteout outside if I remember correctly). I'm just done with games at MetLife.

I had just moved to NYC from Southie and went to a bar to watch it. It was snowing pretty good in NYC that day too. The Walter Reyes show was fun to watch for sure.

*Did we turn a bowl down that year finishing 6-6?

I could be wrong, but I think that was before every .500 team made a bowl game. There's no way we would have turned down an invite.

That Rutgers loss was a sign of things to come. It was horrific offense and inept special teams, and disappointment when we had an opportunity to get a bowl game.

Schiano had his scalp and was off and running on kids we used to get to fill depth and find the occasional gem out of.

Everyone else went to a bowl.
Those were the days when there weren’t as any bowl slots available. The teams in the BE with better records took the available bowls and we were left without a place to play,

That game, between SU and a very bad RU team, was the infamous ‘wind bowl’. The wind was the MVP for RU. I believe RU recovered not one but two of their kickoffs by simply kicking them into the wind. They landed around the 30 yard line untouched and an RU player beat all the Syracuse players to the ball to take possession.

We had beaten RU 11 of the last 12 times we played them. As others have said, it was a huge win for Schiano and a major turning point for the Syracuse and Rutgers football programs.

A day that will live in infamy.

I think the SU players were so embarrassed and angry with their awful performance against Rutgers that they ended up beating a pretty good Notre Dame team pretty easily the following week.

Purdue is going to be pretty strong next year ...
Brohm should have good positioning on the coaching roulette wheel maybe they lose him.

Saterfield appears to be keeping his job though.
