Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Oh, yeah...

How in the world could I have forgotten that the Auburn Tigers are set to take on the University of Wisconsin Badgers in the Gaylor Hotels Music City Bowl in little less than an hour in the lovely town of Nashville?! I mean, you know, besides the obvious things of the game being played during the middle of the day in the middle of the week, against Wisconsin, in a bowl sponsored by a hotel chain.

Add to that the fact that all the post-season stupidity of the administration over the botched ouster of our head coach kinda sucked all the oxygen out of the room, and you have a surefire recipe for lots of yawning. At least Wisconsin's Badgerettes, or whatever they're called, look like a group of fine, healthy representatives of America's Dairyland. And one thing I know they have us beat at is women's hockey.

Anyway, my prediction for this game is Auburn 45, Wisconsin 21, based upon the simple fact that badgers are smaller than tigers.

UPDATE: Oh well, I was wrong--it was only 28-14. The bad thing is that it took them until there was only 3:30 left in the game to go ahead. That's either some really tough badgers, or we have a lot of work to do in the off-season.
