"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."
Nice video highlighting Jeremy Gallon's development and relationship with Coach Heck.
There's also another new video, with some firsts and career stats updates for Denard, Hemingway, and others.
The latest installment up on the Multimedia site of mgoblue.com is a video of the "Play of the Day." It would be nice to see this become a regular segment on top of the Countdown to Kickoff.
Today is Kelvin Grady, (that's right, the former basketball player) making a very nice 1-handed grab. The CB on the play was Vlad who got juked out of his shoes but recovered well to be there when Grady caught the ball. Hopefully Grady can become a viable option at WR. Any word on how he is performing in practice? I haven't heard much else about him lately.
Here's the link:
The new video is up and it shows a few quick drills and interviews. Of note: it was 114 degrees and some of the guys liked it? That's insane.
In other news: Zoltan is shown to punt a real, not deflated or manipulated in any way football, and hit the middle of the roof of the new fieldhouse. No form of matter can contain him.
I was searching around MGoBlue.com today when the ad at the top caught my eye. At first glimpse, I thought the sign read "GO BIG BLUE." I feel like this ad is somehow the subliminal cause to the "Big Blue" craze and not Lee Corso. I would suggest a boycott of Arby's for creating the ad, but I think the Simpsons has already created that with the "I'm so hungry I could eat at Arby's" line that will live forever.
Or perhaps I should just avoid the field hockey page.
What's up with no recap of the game...All previous games have had a recap within a few hours. I trust it's nothing, but I would like to see the interview with R.R. [I'm not bitching...simply asking]
So, I'm trying to watch the videos on MGoBlue..annnnd...yeah, they are THE WORST. If I'm trying to watch a 2 minute video it takes 20 minutes because it's SO.....F'N....SLOOOOOOWWWWW. And, to top it all off there's this ridiculous advertisement for ATT....it says "Delivered by ATT"...AS IF WATCHING A TWO MINUTE VIDEO IN 20 MINUTES IS IMPRESSIVE. F YOU ATT YOU SUCK ASSSSSSS FFFFFFF UUUUUUU ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
Ok. Sorry about that. Any reason for this? It's not my internet connection because I've tried watching the videos on many different connections only to shout obscenities again and again due to how F'n annoying the slooooooowness of this piece of crap website is. Hell.
