"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."
The SEC recently modified their requirement that a grad transfer student apply for a waiver in order to play right away. Now, as long as the athlete meets academic requirements, he can skip the waiver process. But the UF president doesn't like it and took the opportunity to criticize Horford's move:

The sweet-shooting 6'3" two guard chose to take Wisconsin up on its offer of a 2015 scholarship. He recently made an unofficial visit Michigan but apparently did not receive an offer. He'll probably be a nice player at some point, but the Michigan coaches seemed to see him as a back-up plan to Eron Harris (who, per Raoul's post below, is visiting Michigan June 6-7) and Jalen Coleman.
Now he can start working on sliding under jump shooters, grabbing opposing players, flopping, and whining like a stuck pig anytime a call goes against him. Because that's the Badger Way.*
*I wish the kid luck, but it's important to criticize Wisconsin basketball whenever you can.

Jordan just tweeted a picture of a congratulatory letter that Barack Obama sent him for his graduation.
Really cool to see our student athletes receiving attention from our President, especially one as deserving as Jordan!!!
