I. The Oracle 

A. Hexagram twenty-eight is related to Great Excess, hence, Great Exceeding.

Another variation would be the idea of Preponderance of the Great and Great Surpassing. The time is correct; there is a sense of excess to the extent that there is a danger of overload of a supporting structure or beam. The beam which supports the length of a roof is almost at its breaking point. If only there were vertical columns within the structure to reinforce the horizontal beam. Excesses need support as well.
   1. Now is a good time to cross the great water. Success if you take action in any direction.
   2. Great Excess:
With this we see success with movement in any direction, this movement can be seen as a movement towards change and improvement, or towards that of stagnation. We wish to move from modesty and non-action. Take that first step in what you feel is a strategic direction

B. The Image

  1. The lake rises above the trees
      a) Success with movement and in whatever you do expect improvement
      b) Thus the superior man, when he stands alone, is unconcerned, and if he has to renounce the  world, he is undaunted

II. My interpretation 

A. I know I am speaking out of context when it comes to sports, especially football. But can you call the Super Bowl somewhat crazy? Mostly all things are related to numbers. Take hexagram 49 for example, that hexagram is related to revolution, what team would you expect? Trust me there was no mistake, numbers are numbers. Today I am looking at twenty-eight on My Calendar of Days.

   1. The main idea is that there must be support in times of Great Excesses.Also, we can see the old man takes on a young wife, with this we see a rotting willow producing shoots, General improvement or that of rejuvenation. The old women will take a young husband, the image we see here is flowers sprouting from a rotting willow, what is the difference? Its all the same, Marriage, especially the uniting of the young bride.
