Game Notes
Program/Ticket
9/1/2007
at Wyoming
L, 23-3
I was supposed to go to this game with a bunch of my friends
from college but had to bail at the last minute. After the game,
one of my buddies (who's 39, mind you) apparently spent a
large portion of the evening vomiting into a plastic bag. On a
related note, the Hoos unveiled their vaunted "Bag of Vomit"
offense for this game (5 first downs, -3 rushing yards).
 
9/8/2007
vs. Duke
W, 24-13
Duke's football program is great. For me to poop on.
9/15/2007
at UNC
W, 22-20
Officiating 101: Kicks that go over the crossbar are generally
awarded 3 points. (I'm talking to you, Flinchy McFlinchalot.)  
9/22/2007
vs. Georgia Tech
W, 28-23
Beating Georgia Tech always puts a little hop in my step. Not
that I'm still bitter about 1990 or anything.
9/29/2007
vs. Pitt
W, 44-14
The Hoos dominate despite 120 yards and two TDs from Dave
Wannestadt's mustache.
 
10/6/2007
at Middle
Tennessee State
W, 23-21
Wasn't this game supposed to be a gimme?
10/13/2007
vs. Connecticut
W, 17-16
Before we scheduled this game, I honestly had no idea that
UConn even had a football team.
10/20/2007
at Maryland
W, 18-17
I'm pretty sure Terps QB Napoleon Dynamite is still picking
pieces of turf out of his perm after
being broken in half by Chris
Long.
 
10/27/2007
at NC State
L, 29-24
The close game magic finally ends.
 
11/3/2007
vs. #21 Wake Forest
W, 17-16
Noonan!
11/10/2007
at Miami
W, 48-0
Final game in the Orange Bowl turns into an embarrassing loss
for head coach Randy Shannon. Not quite as embarrassing as
the fact that
Shannon doesn't know how old his own son is, but
embarrassing nonetheless.
11/24/2007
vs. #8 Virginia Tech
L, 33-21
Hoos honor former Hokie Bruce Smith at halftime, require Chris
Long to count "five Mississippi" before rushing the quarterback
in the second half.
1/1/2008
vs. Texas Tech
(Gator Bowl)
L, 31-28
Tough loss, but a great season in what many people expected
to be a down year.
