"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."
Sad news about the passing of a true innovator and the de facto "curator" of the NFL brand. As many remembrances are noting, NFL Films created a mystique and a majesty around the NFL that remains to some extent today (although replacement refs and headhunting tacklers aren't helping). Even Football Follies only added to the grandeur.
From what I can personally recall (and also quickly Google) I don't think NFL Films crossed over to do any work in the college game, but it's fun to fantasize about how Sabol would have documented some of Michigan's greatest games and seasons, complete with a mic'ed-up Bo and soundbites from Ufer. Sabol's works were the original hype videos, you might say.
The Michigan-Notre Dame game average ticket price is currently at $371.60, the fourth hottest ticket this year. Michigan appears in the top ten also for the Ohio, MSU and Alabama games.
Alabama is the only other team on the list more than twice.
Not sure Alabama-Auburn is going to be worth it this year.
Edit: Damn. Mods, board pleeeease?!
I laughed my ass off the first 30 seconds! What a guy.
(Old Gif, but apt) Come for the Buffs, stay for the Hokies, Spartans and Trojans!
