The problem is, this might well be BSU's once-every-fifty-years (or worse!) chance to play for a national championship. If BSU can beat VaTech in DC in a week and a half (the first time I'll actually see BSU live since like 2007 when I saw them at LaTech), and get by Oregon State a couple weeks later, they have a very, very good chance of playing for the national championship. And I would absolutely pay all the money I have to go see that game. And when would this game be? Well, something like January 12th or 14th. In other words: SUCK. First, I wouldn't be looking forward to explaining my scheduling decisions based around a football game. Second, I should really just be studying and cramming really hard before my exam anyways. The only real alternative is to take it in mid-December ... but I don't think I want to do that.
I mean, if it comes down to to it, I'm doing the generals rather than the football game, obviously. But, seriously, WHY GOD WHY.
