"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."
shane played through mono. lost to rice 28-0. only played first half. 8/17 for 87 yards and a pick. they said he is out at least 10 days, but it could be much more. the QB for my high school football team got mono and was out for 2 months, because something about your spleen being really sensitive makes it so you cant play.
first post, thought it was post-worthy.
As suggested last week, I'll post a thread for everyone with a (well formed) opinion to share their thoughts on the game. Did a 50 point blowout appease anyone? Covering the spread? No defensive TDs yielded by the defense? Or did you still see the holes in our team, even after that whipping?
I know at one point there was at least some interest with this kid who was trying to decide between track and football, but 644yds and 10tds in one game is pretty impressive, not sure the talent levels, but still good.
In this game ND's defensive line dominated MSU's and essentially shut down Lev'eon Bell. Considering the past few years against ND where the game could have gone either way (especially last year where we did not deserve to win based on the first 3 quarters), does this game lean more towards ND being a formittable opponent or MSU being much less of a threat?
It seems to me that MSU is very one dimensional and relies upon Bell too much (similar to us relying upon Denard) and shutting him down equals a much easier victory then previously assumed.
That being said, does this game imply more that we should be more wary of ND or less of MSU?
At the end of the BYU-Utah game the refs had to put on a last second on the clock because the incomplete ball hit the turf with one sec on the clock remaining. The crowd has rushed the field at this point but are forced to go to the sidelines because the refs correctly put a sec back on the clock.
The field goal kicker attempts and misses a 51 yard field goal but during the ensuing scrum, the kick was blocked, players and members of the crowd rush the field again. This results in a 15 yard live ball penalty which gives the kicker another attempt this time for 36 yards or so.
Kicker hits the left upright and BYU loses. Not a great season for kickers so far. Need to follow our very own Gibbon's advice and think about, above all else, brunettes. Just really entertaining end to the game.
Now, let's beat ND next week.
Starting Safety Jamoris Slaughter who was injured last week against Purdue with a shoulder left the game tonight with an apparent ankle injury. The game was still very much in question when he left the game, and did not return. If he is unable to go this further complicates the problem the Dame has with their back 4 so we shall see.
ND's front seven looked really good tonight so it would seem as though it rests upon the arm of Denard. He makes plays in the passing/scrambling game we have an excellent chance to win the game.
