"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 buddy of mine at work sent me this article. Great read leading up to 'The Game.' Enjoy amigos!
I dont know how many people remember this game because it was so long ago. I cant believe this was the last ime we beat OSU in the horseshoe. This was one of Hensons best games by far. This team had so much potential and probably could have gone undefeated if not for all the injuries. At least they ended on a high note by beating the buckeyes and winning a share of the Big ten title.
Have you forgotten 1969?
How about 1993?
How about 1995?
Even the youngest among us should remember 1996
An undefeated, overconfident OSU team has played Michigan before. I'm with Wolverine1987 (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/112613-day-mgoemo-cratered) Stop whining. Stop with the doom and gloom. Go Blue. Beat Ohio.
I have noticed something occuring recently on the board that I'm really hoping we can have a civil and respectful discourse on because I don't understand it and would honestly like to understand why it's happening. Why are people seemingly angry with alumni & others making the decision to not renew their season tickets?
To begin with I think there are a lot of good reasons to not renew your tickets AND I think there'sa lot of good reasons to renew your tickets. I could easily make an arguement for both and given that I've held mine since 1987 you can see that for 26 years I supported the "renew" side of the debate. But what I do not understand, and would like some board insight on, is why are people angry at those now deciding to not renew?
Look at every thread where the subject is broached. You will read comments like "don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out" or "we don't need you here anyways" and other deragatory posts where it's clear the person writing is upset that another person is not renewing. I truly don't get it - why are people mad over this? And take me and my well documented decision out of this please when responding - those negative comments have been directed across the board at virtually everyone who has posted they are not renewing next year. There was a thread up last night where the question was asked and posters with little or no board history were getting riduculed and slammed as "fair weather fans" for their decision.
If it's true that we have a long waiting list for seasons tickets the departure of some of the current attendees simply means new people will replace them. And presumably these new fans will be excited and happy to get their seats so the stadium will remain full and with new, perhaps more energized, fans. Why is this a bad thing? Why are people upset with those making the decision to stop attending (regardless of their reasons) - it doesnt make sense to me.
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.

Saw this on Wikipedia, should be a nice little diversion from gloom and doom.
At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page, George Campbell is featured in the "Did you know..." factbox. Here's a little screenshot of it. Nice to remember that we do have some future studs in the pipeline, and some cool recognition for George.
