"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."
I might pick up the white ones since I already have the UTL ones.

I know these posts are getting old so if I don't fill the empty slots in this then we will just continue with less than 12 members. That being said there is
4 1 openings in our BIG Dynasty.
The available teams are as follows:
Ohio, IU, Minn. (SPARTY IS ONLY ONE LEFT)
This is a Dynasty for Xbox, if you are interested leave your GT below. I will be sending out the invites tonight, hopefully we can start the season then, so be on the lookout for the invite.
Dynasty is now full, I will be sending out the invites early this evening. We already have most of the particpants ready to advance so make haste!
According to SI, he makes over 15M in earnings - well deserved:
So, I've been thinking about something for a while, and this post on EDSBS just confirmed it.
EA isn't making bad football games with their NCAA lineup. They're not sports games at all! They're TBS games with a football mini-game included! Why, all you need is some darnkess and a Grue and you've got Zork IV - Coach's Oddesy!
You are standing in your office in the Spartan Athletic Complex. There is a telephone here.
What do you want to do with the telephone?
>Call In-State Recruit
You call an in-state recruit. His response is very dark. You are likely to be eaten by a Hoke.
You are holding a fall practice at Kinnick Stadium. There is a team here. There is a bench here.
>Look at Bench
You see a playbook.
You see three plays . Run Middle, Run Outside, Pass Deep
What play do you want to call?
You cleave the Running Back with a thundrous blow! The Running Back is defeated!
You are sleeping at home on a Saturday night at 3 AM. Your cellphone rings.
What do you want to throw the phone at?
You can't throw that far.
You answer the phone and discover that your starting Middle Linebacker has just been arrested for DWI. What do you want to do?
>Consult depth chart
There is no depth chart.
How long do you want the indefinite suspension to last?
You issue a suspension through Friday. Tommorow's headlines will read, "Coach Meyer comes down hard on another one."
You gain Devil Horns.
Seriously, though, I nearly stopped playing NCAA because I got tired of some of the bull. Just let me play football!
My 7 year old son is attending a Pittsburgh Steelers camp later this week. Each kid is allowed to bring one item to get autographed by the Steelers. We live in Pittsburgh and are not Steeler fans (don't ask), but my son really wanted to do a football camp, and the camp is literally 1 mile from my house. I have no idea what Steelers will be there, but would imagine it is mainly the second and third tier guys. Thus - I have no clue if Woodley and/or Foote will be there. Regardless - those are the only 2 autographs my son cares to get.
Two questions on this:
1) Is it ok to bring a Michigan hat to get autographed by Woodley and Foote? Or will they only expect to sign Steeler gear?
2) If the answer to #1 is yes, should be get Ryan Mundy's autograph on a Michigan hat? Mundy did play for UM, but finished his career at WVU.
According to the Sport Business Journal we get some insight as to why the B1G was so protective of the Rose Bowl during the playoff negotiations this summer. (Hint - it wasn't nostalgia or a desire to play in the Granddaddy of Them All.)
The payoff has increased 167% to an average of $80M a year over the 12-year deal beginning in 2015 and ending in 2026.

Deals for the Orange and Outback bowls are pending per the SBJ, so we'll see if the Rose Bowl deal is a market-maker.
