"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."
TINY SLOT NINJAS!
You all know what to do!
Michigan-Michigan State is on.
During Tressel's tenure, their players seemed to be powerful, explosive & never injured. Since Tressel's departure, the number of injuries seem to be piling up weekly.
During RR's time in Michigan, we always seemed to have people battering injuries. Since Hoke's arrival, we seem to be less injured.
Do you think there is something about the Spread that predisposes players (other then running QB's)? Is it that they run more offensive plays, thus more chance for injuries?
Braxton Miller was injured late in the third quarter after a long run when he was tackled by a Purdue defender. The Purdue player grabbed Miller's jersey and pulled him to the ground rather forcefully. Miller went down hard on his left shoulder and didn't move much. He laid on the field for quite a while and appeared to be crying. He then was helped off the field by two coaches and appeared that he could barely walk. A very mysterious injury.
Buckeye coaches appeared to want a horsecollar call, but the tackle was clean. Injury could have been avoided if Miller ran out of bounds. Sucks though. Looks painful whatever it is.
Kid's been on campus so many times this isn't a big deal either way.
Apparently he hasn't gotten any D1 offers yet. YET.
Edit: Granted, that thing gets blocked anywhere other than high school, but still a pretty dog gone good leg if you ask me.
