"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."
A few minutes ago during the Boca Raton Bowl telecast, Desmond Howard was asked my his booth-mate when Michigan will fill their coaching vacancy.
He responded with, "Prooably about this time next week."
That's an interesting timeline :)
No open thread created yet, so thought I'd kick things off. Sparty fans' signs are getting a lot of mileage out of Urban's late-night pizza run in Indy. Here's to GameDay being in AA for The Game next year because it's relevant to the B1G East title, and we can have our own fun. Go Blue.
Desmond Howard reached a settlement with the photographer of his Heisman Trophy pose after his punt return TD against Ohio State. The photographer will transfer the copyright over to Howard in exchange for a cut of the financial benefits from its future use. The photographer's lawsuit against the other defendants for the photo's unauthorized use still remains. Good for Desmond.
I've been looking for some new books to read, and the recent Jon Falk post got me thinking. I've read the more recent Michigan football books, If These Walls Could Talk, I Wore 21, Three and Out. I figured if there was anywhere that could point out a few more good UM books, it was you guys. Any advice?
Turn to espn on your tv ASAP he's on after the commercial break.
Edit: here is the content
- Gives NW a "chance" to beat ohio but their defense is suspect.
- Storm expected: bad weather may favor NW because they like to run and throw short passes.
- Smarter schools being successful a real trend (no mention of Michigan c'mon Desmond!)
- Stoops shouldn't talk about SEC unless he mans up and schedules them.
I have two quick questions about College Gameday. I'm a sophomore, and therefore was not here when College Gameday was in town for the 1st UTL game. Can anyone that went tell me how early you showed up, and how good your spot in the crowd was? Is it worth being there if you show up at, say, 8AM and you're behind a massive amount of people?
Also, would my cowbell be confiscated if I were to bring it? Anyone with past college gameday expirience is welcome to share their expiriences.
