Marshall Ohio Battle for the Bell

The Battle for the Bell dates back to 1905, when the Marshall Thundering Herd and the Ohio Bobcats, located merely 80 or so miles apart, met in Huntington, West Virginia.  Marshall clawed out a 6-5 victory in that meeting.  The Bell was first introduced in 1997 and while Ohio leads the overall series 30-19-6, Marshall has been the dominate team of late, winning the Bell in nine out of eleven games.  A brief hiatus ensued when Marshall left the MAC for Conference USA in 2005, but after an unexpected meeting in the 2009 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, the two teams signed a six year contract to bring the game back.  This year’s battle pits a 1-1 Marshall team against a 2-0 Ohio team with votes in the polls and its eyes on an undefeated season.

Navy Notre Dame Football Helmets

College football kicks off tomorrow night, so for the next three months or so the “How to Dress for” series is going to be taken over by the sport.  Each week will feature a post on how to dress for the game of the week, usually a rivalry or a top 25 matchup.  There are a few stipulations though.  First of all, at least one of the teams must be located within the Midwest.  Look you’ll likely see a ton of posts elsewhere on what to wear to games in the south and frankly Midwestern fans need more help dressing well than our southern counterparts.  Also, I am sick of having to hear about SEC schools all the time and this is a blog based out of the Midwest anyways.  The second stipulation is that each school can only be featured once.  So while the Michigan-Alabama game is one of the best match ups this weekend it won’t be featured because there’s no way the Michigan-Ohio State game is going to be left out at the end of the year.  Yes, Buckeye and Wolverine fans you’re going to have to wait awhile for your post.

How to Dress for Rush Week Banner

As classes are heading back into session it can be time for only one thing – rush week.  Now fraternities are not going to judge how you’re dressed to the extent that sororities will judge their PNMs but you’d be remiss to think that what you wear won’t have at least some influence on whether you receive a bid or not.  The following are some recommendations on how to dress for rush week.  In reality it’s extremely easy to mix and match elements from each depending on the situation.

How to Dress for the 4th of July Banner

You can go either one of two routes when dressing for the 4th of July.  The first option is in your face American flag tank tops, shorts and whatever else you may find.  The second is much more subtle, and quite frankly, looks quite a bit better. That’s what I’ll focus on today, looks you can get away with any time of the year but ones that are especially pertinent to the 4th of July.  The one key requirement was that every item had to be made in the USA, sadly not a small feat.  It just feels wrong to celebrate the birth of our country in something made in China.

The guys over at Country Club Prep are currently running a giveaway on their Facebook page and the prize is one of the better ones I’ve seen, a $500 gift card to be used at the store.  To win you’ll have to upload a picture in your preppiest outfit and then get the most likes by May 2nd.  The giveaway has me thinking about what I would get if I won, so I’ve put together a couple of outfits and even thrown in one for the ladies for good measure that you could pick up if you find yourself $500 richer.
