College Football
Prince Charming was over the moon on Saturday.

He is a die hard University of Wisconsin Badgers fan and he lives for college football. So, the Badger's decimation of Temple - to the tune of 65-0 - was like Christmas for him. The icing on the cake was the news that Ohio State, Iowa, and Michigan all lost. His giddiness could not be contained. He was like an 8-year-old with a lifetime's supply of slime.

How about that Barry Alvarez, huh? Is he the classiest coach in college football, or what? He didn't go for the scoring record, though it could have easily been achieved. Instead, he nobly benches the starters before the end of the second quarter and starts playing the second and third string. The man is all class. Instead of rubbing Temple's nose in their own defeat, he sends in the scrubs and plays guys who didn't even dress for the game. (One kid was told at half-time to get dressed.) I read in the paper that the only person Barry Alvarez didn't play was the team chaplain. Seriously - the man is all class. He's just a good guy.

And, it is important to note that he isn't just nice. He has built a team that is not just good this year, last, or next. Even our B and C-team scored against Temple and managed to hold them scoreless. That is saying something! I don't care who you are.
