I can't make it to today's game since I'm heading off to Dallas to cover the TicketCity Bowl tomorrow morning between the Houston Cougars and Penn State Nittany Lions for the mothership. I'm sure that, if you're nice, Heather and/or Andrew will kindly post stories and notes following the game.
That said, I want to wish everybody a Happy New Year, and may 2012 be a better year than 2011.
Here's a little music video to get you going on this day, U2's "Beautiful Day." While the band's "New Year's Day" has the appropriate title, "Beautiful Day" has the more appropriate tone and lyrics, I believe.
