"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Go Blue. Beat OSU.

Sad story coming out of Columbus today, as following one of OSU's traditions to jump into Mirror Lake the week of The Game, which is done by thousands of students each year, one of the students suffered a cardiac arrest and after being rushed to the hospital, passed away. Even though we're always rivals on and off the field, we can acknowledge that some things transcend football and, as shown last week with the Chad Carr stickers, we are still one human family.
Prayers go out to the Buckeyes and especially the family and friends of this student.
Edit: Update: OSU has said it will cancel the Mirror Lake jump tradition.
Decided to upload the Hate Week wallpaper I made. Hopefully some will enjoy.

Go Blue! Beat Ohio!
For Mgobloggers who played football at Michigan, how was Ohio State week different from others? Did you feel extra pressure to perform? Did you sense coaches feeling under the gun to win The Game? Were you honestly glad the season was almost done and you could soon return to a more normal student life? Did your team's practice intensity rise higher than other weeks? Was The Game buildup more of a media phenomenon and less so for players? Please share what you can with those of us who will never experience preparing as a player for college football's greatest rivalry game.
