Gameday Linkdump 05/22/2011

So, that rapture thing didn't happen after all, what a shame. I thought my chair was shaking, my house was burning and I saw Jesus for a bit yesterday but that was just because I had Taco Bell on Friday, I think. Either way, here's some fun football-related stuff for you to read before the game starts tonight, collected throughout the week.
