THE MC IS GETTING A TATTOO

THE RESULTS ARE IN, AND MICHIGAN REIGNS AGAIN

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

LSU did not win the EDSBS Charity Bowl, and that's fine. They have other things going on, like going bankrupt as an institution thanks to a heady blend of legislative incompetence and a sudden dive in gas and oil income. Y'all save up, and remember that tax cuts never generate income no matter how much money you think you're making. Consider going without a governor for a while; if LSU can go as far as they've gone without a quarterback, just imagine what that can do for the entire state.*

*Another suggestion: PPV man vs. tiger fights. Just consider it. Mike's not busy, ever.

The Charity Bowl closed this weekend, and the winners as always: Michigan. The Wolverines had 162 total donations for $14,109, a massive total earning them the spoils of victory. They get the Hatin' Ass Spurrier post, the tattoo on our precious unblemished body, the site re-skin in maize and blue, and our eternal gratitude for their generosity.

Texas came in second, but Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Auburn all made strong showings, as well. Make Spencer Eat Cheese University did not achieve their yearly goal, but you tried and that's what counts. Our largest single donor was a generous lunatic from Michigan who, when we tweeted out that we were about a grand short of the tattoo mark, just threw in another grand on top of their generous total to make it happen. We raised $11K on Friday alone. You are all insane and giving, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for that.

The grand total for the week came to a whopping $38,706.78. That's a record for the fundraiser, something we don't take lightly. Not much we do matters, but this does, and it only happens because this community of people cares, and has for over ten years straight at this point. So if you gave, or even just told someone with money to give, thank you, thank you, thank you, you're far too kind. Hold your applause, and we mean it: this is your song, not mine.

Final standings below. We have no clue on the tattoo, but something like this, but with a wolverine instead of a bear holding the bomb? That's the general direction so far.
