"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 there's one thing we can all agree to hate around here...it's Justin Boren:
Let's all stop bickering and enjoy Hate Week...for a second...and then go back to bickering.

Presenting, in case anyone was curious:
Presumably Mallet is somewhere in the 1-43 range.
Unless a snowstorm is coming, and the plow calls, I'm betting he's there!
The Game is all about the warm spirit of sharing.
So, welcome to Insult-a-Buck, the thread where you can share the most creative, tasteless, degrading, disgusting, or offensive insults ever heard in the history of The Game.
Here’s a modest start*:
--Is not the laziest person around.
-------------But most of those who are lazier are dead
--has a girlfriend who has been faithful to the end
-------------Unfortunately, he’s the quarterback.
OSU fans who are seen watching the game at a bar, nursing a beer…..
----------- --I hope your nipple gets soggy

EDIT: Since it was in the banner of ESPN stories on the CFB front page I assumed it was current. It mentioned Friday practice, which I assumed was a morning practice (some programs do them) and since there was no mention of USC I just assumed it was an instant-update short story filed moments after the fact.
Lots of assuming; I guess I shouldn't assume UM wins tomorrow or I might be wrong on that too!
Justin Boren suffered a knee injury in practice and may miss 3+ weeks while rehabilitating it.

Wisconsin has suspended two likely starters at safety from camp, making their future unclear and a start September 5th against Northern Illinois highly unlikely. Shane Carter and Aubrey Pleasant both have a solid amount of starts and their departure, however short, is a thorn in the side of a team that has faced a lot of criticism for not playing to its potential.
