"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."
If you were at or watching the Michigan game yesterday, you probably missed this. I just watched the first half and I'm impressed with Northwestern's defense. Illinois obviously saw what Army did to them with the option decided to attack with that but NU has shut it down. Their secondary looks vulnerable to the deep ball but that's clearly not a strength of our passing game. It will be interesting to see what kind of a game Borges calls.
Even before re-injuring himself, Persa doesn't look like he's full speed. He's able to manage the game, hand off, and his arm is fine but he doesn't have the mobility he had before his achilles exploded. He looks gimpy and rusty.
EDIT: Persa looks much better in the 2nd half before the injury.
Flip it to BTN to watch the 67-65 3OT affair from last year. It's a good time killer until the Tigers game starts.
Probably the high water mark of the Rich Rodriguez era as well as the last shining moment of Tate's Michigan career.
The game also features current Lions RB Mikael Leshoure.
Also, for you Wings fans out there, Game 1 of this past year's playoff series against the yotes is on NHL network.
We just went up 67-59, Illinois about to make their last stand...I'm going to miss that goofy little bugger Tate Forcier...
MGoBoard, I require your assistance. During the Illinois game, this happened:
Vinopal falls down for no obvious reason there. Somebody made a video explaining why that happened- specifically a cat poked its head out from the Illinois sideline and sniped Vinopal. I was trying to find that video yesterday to show someone but was completely unable to find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and where it is?
I've looked through all of my RSS feeds without success and scoured the board. Perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Once the video is found, this thread can be locked since it will have served its purpose.
92 snaps, 33 first downs, 676 yards, 67 points and only 25:39 TOP. Seriously WTF RR you evil magician.
Uploading to the MGoVideo YouTube channel has been disabled due to a copyright claim by the Michigan Marching Band for their Wizard of Oz halftime show video. I guess they didn't want 40,000 people to watch it embedded on MGoBlog and annarbor.com for some reason. I'll be uploading all new videos to my new channel:
Edit: There's some motion blur on this video that I didn't notice while editing. I'm going to try reconverting it before I edit the offense.
