"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."
My friend has an extra ticket for The Game. I am in a fierce battle to obtain it. I put myself in this position answering Timmy B's 313yrd game correctly. The last question was, "Who was Charles Woodson's Roommate?" I did not know and guessed Marcus Ray. Apparently, that was incorrect and that Diallo Johnson was his roommate. I have then searched the interwebz for validation with no luck.
I began thinking that it was probably unlikely they were roommates every year, is this true?
Thanks for the help and the negs that are surely coming my way.
Brian, what's this week's blog schedule? Do I need to fake an injury to read UFR during Thanksgiving dinner?
Enjoy! That's really all that needs to be said.
“It’s the education part,” Washington continued. “I know all these schools athletically can offer me the same thing. The academic support at Ohio State, there is no way you can fail. Even if you’re giving minimal effort there is no way you can fail.”
Not sure how to respond to this.....
This may end of as a confusing neg bomb for me, but let me try and explain what has me a little confused.
1. I think everyone agrees that the Big Ten is horrible this year.
2. Many of the supposed top teams around the country have tanked.
3. The top 3 teams in the country are quarterbacked by Jordan Jefferson, AJ McCarron and Tyler Wilson.
4. If the Big Ten sucks why do I not fear any bowl match ups as being potentially embarrassing? Can every conference be down at the same time?
My questions to the Mgocommunity are
Do you feel like the quality of teams in the Top 25 are down this year?
If so why? Bad QB play? Pairity?(Min and Ind disagree... still seem to be plenty of really shitty teams but not as many great ones).
Found an interesting article link while lurking at 11W. It's not new but I thought it was an interesting take on Herbstreit. It's a long read.
On his number (4) in college.
"My favorite player was Jim Harbaugh," Herbstreit says, "I loved his style. His style of play and my style of play were very similar."
On moving from Columbus.
"Five times a day, there would be a car parked at a stop sign, people knocked on the door, they'd ask for autographs at the front door, they'd drive by real slow, 12:30 at night, I was getting up in the middle of the night to see cars outside in the street. I had no idea what they were doing there. The thought, that in this crazy world we live in, somebody's driving by your house five times a day or more, that starts to work on you emotionally. But we dealt with that for four or five years."
"If I left (the show) I would want to go coach," Herbstreit says, "I'd want to be a high school coach at a program where it really mattered or I've talked with Urban (Meyer) about if he gets back into coaching being a quarterbacks coach and eventually an offensive coordinator for him."
Asked if he's serious, Herbstreit responds, "Oh, yeah, for sure. At this point, at my age, it's tougher probably to imagine doing that just because I've elevated myself to a point in my career where it's hard to imagine starting over, but I'm not closing that door. I'll keep doing this (ESPN College Gameday) as long as they'll have me, but if a big time college coach asked me to be his quarterbacks coach and eventually be his offensive coordinator, it would be an interesting situation to deal with."
