  2. HA HA, 76, you're killin' me! Hoo Hah! What you just did is about exactly what I was cooking up to do next. I've been planning to hold a "tournament" in which several of us each take a list of about 20 ridiculous "games" that they count in football, and we put them in order of stupidity and vote on them each week to make the all-time Top 20 of hilarious UM "football wins".

    You've just given us a great start on that! Other guys, please take a look at this list, and think about which "games" you want to rank as the dUMbest of them all. We'll get to that after March Madness......
