I guess our 6-0 #11 Iowa Hawkeyes are only comparible to furniture.
Iowa is IKEA furniture. Not many things are both trendy and popular, but IKEA and the Hawkeyes both are right now. IKEA because it's cheap; Iowa because a weary football nation sees the Hawkeyes as the last best hope for a Buckeye-free BCS. Thus millions are willing to overlook the common flaws of each: They're kind of funny looking, nobody is really sure how long either will hold up, and you're not sure you can believe them when they say that the STANZI coffee table goes with the FERENTZ armchair, the ANGERER TV stand, and the MOEAKI floor lamp.
But yet, Meechigan is a Beemer?
Michigan is a BMW with the first-generation iDrive system. From the outside, everybody can see that you've got a Bimmer, and a fairly new one at that. It's easy to be impressed. That's good news for you, because you're sitting inside the car with absolutely no idea how to change the radio station or keep the defroster from running full blast all summer long. But you look like a player.
I got a chuckle out of the rest of the article.
On a side note, we all know Meechigan plays Deleware St. this weekend. DSU has an enrollment of 3,700 students. Kirkwood Community College has an enrollment of 17,841. Why can't they have a football team? LOL
