"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."
This will be the official snowflake thread for thoughts on defense and defensive playcalling. I know these are early, but the system seems to work.
I am going to start creating these now - this is the official snowflake thread for thoughts about the offense and offensive playcalling.
Realisticly, What do you want to see out of the Wolverines this weekend. The teams coming off a bye weeks with supposed major changes to the O-line (Bryant and Glaskow), RB (more carries for Green) , TE ( Funchess more on the outside and Butt Starting) and possible changes in the WR corp. What does the team have to do to ease the fan bases angst after the last few weeks.
Everyone remembers the story of the little guy, Jack Hoffman, who scored a touchdown at the Nebraska spring game while battling brain cancer. The world learned today that his cancer is in remission and he no longer needs chemotherapy. Of course he will need monitoring and maybe more treatment in the future, but his case is moving in a very positive direction, and it's great to start the day off reading some good news like that. Because fuck little-kid cancer, man - it's the worst thing ever. Go Jack!
College Gameday is at Evanston today for Northwestern v. Ohio State at 8 PM on ABC tonight
It looks like the Northwestern crowd is up and into this game, which should lead to a great atmosphere tonight.
Some highlight-ish games for the noon slate:
MSU v. Iowa - 12 PM on Espn 2
- Iowa looks to be vastly improved from last year and their defense should be enough to stall the MSU offense. The question is whether Rudock can have time in the pocket to find his tight ends.
Maryland (25) v. FSU (8) on Espn
- Is Jameis Winston for real? Maryland has not yet played a good team and could be used to wipe the floor. On the other hand, Florida State is seemingly slow to start and struggled defensively against Boston College and Nevada to start that game.
Illinois v. Nebraska on Espn U
- Nebraska's defense always seems to turn a corner midseason... is this the game where they do that? If not, it's going to be a long day for the Huskers as Scheelhasse in Cubit's offense seems to have found a groove and the Illinois defense can probably do enough to stall the Huskers.
