"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."
Anyone have an idea of when it's happening this year. I believe Jeff Holzhausen (sp) is the guy that puts it on and I can't remember what date time we went last year.
I would assume either Tuesday or Friday are the best options, but if anyone knows for sure, please let us know.
If anyone is wondering what I'm referencing, It's an annual tradition where ~50 fans head out to Forest Hill Cemetery to lay flowers at Bo's, Yost's and Ufer's grave sites. Any and all are welcome.
Michigan recruit Stefon Diggs helped his school, Good Counsel, finish undefeated this weekend. Diggs scored on the first play of the game to start a blowout. Per the Washington Post, this Good Counsel team was one of the best ever in the greater DC area. More detail is in the link.
Here's hoping this kid goes blue.
Look's as though they are seeing the writing on the wall?
The game from this past weekend is being replayed on ESPN right now (4:40 AM). It's playing until 6 AM so if any of you are like me and don't sleep at normal hours or if any of you are looking for something to brighten your day as soon as you wake up, tune in to watch.
Shaq Thompson has eliminated us after this weekend. His new top 3 are ASU, Cal, and Washington. He's taking his last official visit to Utah in 2 weeks. He also semi-eliminated Oregon and said this,
"Those three have my attention right now," he said. "I was feeling Oregon too but the more I think about how small Eugene is, I'm not sure that fits me. I'm kind of a big city guy."
I'm not sure how big Eugene is but I don't really consider Ann Arbor a big city.
Barring something crazy happening, it doesn't look like he'll visit. We always knew he was a longshot but it was still nice to think we had a fighting chance.
ESPN is predicting Michigan vs. Houston in the Sugar Bowl. If this happened, This is ridiculously premature speculation and there is a significantly more important game coming up next week, but since we're fans, we can actually talk about what might happen if we win that game without the team losing focus. I know that the goal is to beat Ohio fergodsakes, but a BCS bowl win in Brady Hoke's first year would also be nothing short of tremendous.
So I'm wondering, how would Michigan match up with Houston? Houston puts up insane passing numbers, but does so against inferior defenses. Michigan has not really been torched through the air since the Notre Dame game, and it seems as if the defense has improved since then. Would Michigan be favored in a matchup with Houston? Is Houston's offense really the best in the country, or is it inflated by playing in Conference USA? Michigan's passing defense is 14th with 184 yards per game. However, Houston's offense is insane. Houston puts up an absurd 447.5 yards per game in the air, which is more than Michigan puts up in total offense. Their total offense is 618 yards per game, with 53.1 PPG. Their quarterback is makes 2010 Denard look like Joe Bauserman, statistically.
How would Michigan match up against Houston? Would you favor us to win?
