Well, the string is broken. You may remember that the Friday before the Michigan State game I came up with the idea of the post-swap wager. Ghosts of Wayne Fontes was the first taker of the wager. After that week we had wagers with No Name on My Jersey for the Penn State game, and Brats n Beer for the Wisconsin game. This week the challenge went out to Illinitalk, but they have declined the wager. No matter who wins on Saturday there will be no friendly banter on the opposing site this week.
Maybe that is for the best. Let’s face it, as soon as the final whistle is blown on Saturday, whether win or lose, it will be Michigan week. And I can’t imagine wasting time on the Illinois game after Sunday anyway. Go Buckeyes!
