What have we here? It is an Ohio State/Michigan infographic-in-progress that our own Robert Marshall has been working on four the past four years! Although it’s still a long way from completion, he’s given me the green light to show you how it’s coming along. He describes it thusly:
Essentially, I let history determine how it will look — winner of the game, home or away, the year, the score, Rose Bowl wins/losses, conference titles, were both teams in the top five, who won the intercollegiate conference of faculty representatives, etc.
I still need to clear-coat it. As of now I have no mention of any player or coach, because it isn’t about individual glory, and it should be something equally fab for a graduate from either school, but for that very reason I have gone back and forth about putting Academic All-Americans’ names on the outside. I’m also going back and forth about doing something for Willis Ward and Dr. William M. Bell but have not decided yet how to do it. This has to win an infographic contest, since it took me four years to make!
I suspect we’ll be hearing more about this project in the near future.
Meanwhile … Labor Day is usually a big meat-based weekend (in fact, there’s a nice gesture to that effect over at the Butcher’s Case), but I was feeling kinda crustacean-ish yesterday, so a few friends and I drove out to Clemente’s Crab House in Sheepshead Bar, where we had a crab feast. Mmmmm…
Enjoy the holiday, everyone. I’ll be back with a full-length entry tomorrow. — Paul
