Michigan St. travels to S. Bend to take on Notre Dame at 3:30 PM Saturday.  That game is on WOOD-TV (NBC) at 3:30 PM.  I’ll probably be down at ArtPrize, but if I’m near a TV, I’ll keep an eye on my alma mater (Wisconsin).  The Badgers are hosting Purdue.  Michigan is at Connecticut (they should have just moved he game to the Big House and collected the extra $$).  That’s an ABC (WOTV4) game and starts at 8 PM.  Toledo comes to Mt. Pleasant to take on CMU at Noon (ESPN3).  Western is at Iowa at Noon on the Big Ten Network.  The Lions are in D.C. to take on the Redskins.  Both teams really need a win.  The Sunday evening game on WOOD-TV (NBC) is the 2-0 Bears against Pittsburgh.  The Tigers host the last-place White Sox.  They may close out the division title this weekend.  NASCAR is at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (Sunday 2 PM on ESPN).  Keep an eye on the forecasts for the Friday night Football Frenzy games.  The front ought to clear our area, but east toward Detroit and especially in Ohio, thunderstorms could disrupt the games.  I already linked to this video, but it’s worth seeing again.  Lightning hitting a tree next to a high school football halftime show in Florida last Friday night.   More new and updated threads below this one.

    I decided to do a test to see how accurate Accuweather really is… About a month ago I recorded what they forecasted for September 16th… They said 72 and mostly sunny. Now, after nearly 3 weeks, their forecast calls for 67 and mostly sunny!

    I think that my son is right :(

    Miguel Cabrera has stopped taking steroids and can’t hit the ball anymore. But the tigers win again! My son also told me about some terrible nah donkey kong or something is his nickname. So sick of people that make so much money that beat up their women and take drugs and use steroids! Why do we cheer our teams on when they are full of cheater like these two! And also Floyd is fighting this weekend. He prob hits his women harder than his opponents because he is so boring to watch. Haha. It makes me sad to think this weather blog is becoming a blog to support the sickest criminals in Michigan. I think it’s time to get back to the great stories of climate change and the beautiful fall weather!

      OR!?… your son is wrong and your blabbing was a TOTAL waste of your time!? There are no ‘great’ stories of climate change. They simply don’t exist.

      1. Clarence says:

        Haha! Surely BILL and 100% of scientists will disagree! Who is paying you to be a troll against SCIENCE and WEATHER!

        1. bobcat says:

          If you are so brilliant, shouldn’t that last statement ended with a question mark? lol! Can you really think of anything that 100% of the so called ‘scientists’ agrees on?…

        2. Clarence says:

          Wouldn’t it be ‘agree’?


          Yes. Gravity.

        3. Clarence says:

      Clarence; You clearly have some issues! How can you claim that this blog supports criminals? You’ll have to back up that claim with facts! Do you have any facts? As far as your statement about Miggy, he is hurt!

  8. Jack says:

    JUST FOR YOU…BILL !!!!!! GOOOOOOO. BADGERS!!!!!!!!! ;-)

  9. Jack says:

    DANG…BILL !!!! Your ” Badgers ” got Robbed by The ” ZEBRAS” !!!!!! :-(

    1. Bill Steffen says:

      Yeah…Badgers had a chip shot 15-yard field goal. They should have won.

  10. Dan says:

    Holy Smokes! Big Blue stunk up the joint. They were VERY lucky to get the win against Akron. They would’ve been the laughing stock of all of college football had they lost that one. Can we chalk it up to overlooking their opponent or does it have more to do with an emotional let down from beating the Irish last week?
    The Tigers lead is now down to 5. Do they have enough to lock up the Central?
