Happy Hangover de Mayo, everyone.

Farmageddon will be played on championship weekend this year. Thank God the game's in Manhattan this year. I mean, Manhattan in December is bad enough, but can you imagine December football in Ames? Would the teams score more points than players who left the game due to frostbite?
