On the heels of B-Rep's fabulous wrap up of the Michigan State win, we turn attention now to the "Bloomington Six" that headed west to ensure that our beloved Scarlet Knights became bowl-eligible for the first time in almost a decade.
|The Bloomington 6, prepping|
for IU with fine spirits
Beautiful campus, downtown and football setting, with the stadium next door to Alumni Hall.
|The perfect album cover for|
hardcore punk band
|RU supporters revel in|
win at The Upstairs
Bloomington is a great college town and incredibly walkable.
|Scoreboard says it all|
From there, a round at the famous Nick's English Hut and a late night of live country music at the historic Bluebird, where Audi Club Eric was itching to do some line dancing to the sounds of local hero Hank Ruff. We ended up leaving the club around 1 a.m. and just missed the arrest of 5-star IU basketball freshman MacKenzie Mgbako. (Of course, no suspension at all for a kid being a complete shithead and getting booked outside the Taco Bell basically across the street from the Bluebird.)
Next Up: RU hosts Ohio State, Saturday at noon; tailgate meet-up at 8:45 a.m.: From Eric and Andrea's fabulous Halloween party, it seemed folks were cool doing our version of the Thurmanator, the ultimate pigout food of Columbus, OH, home of the Buckeyes. It's something we've done before with much success. Bill will handle all of the burger materials.
Otherwise we could use maybe a breakfast pastry/food based on early arrival time and some sides; green salad, potato salad? Make suggestions in comment field below.
