"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."
As we all know the 4 game ticket packs have been on sale for a couple weeks now with season tix holders, alumni, and victors club getting first crack at them.
Today on my Outlook calander I saw my reminder pop up saying that the general public tickets were going on sale next Monday, so on a whim I decided to pop over to www.mgoblue.com and see what time they went on sale which is where I noticed this bit of info...

Found this video on ESPN and thought people might find it interesting. Brian Bennett believes Cam Gordon can become a playmaker at linebacker. I hope he's right and the position switch will be beneficial to him and the team. I always thought he would be a better linebacker than DB, especially with his ability to lay the wood. Now he just needs to start wrapping up.
Granted, Bennett's not very well-spoked (should stick to writing) but an interesting segment nonetheless. I personally love how he says he can "be a difference maker if he upgrades and elevates his game." Srsly? And I can be president if I'm elected.

My first reaction to flipping on to the Big Ten Network was why?!?!
Then, I decided to watch it for historical purposes because I am that desperate for football to start.
You don't say...

Not a bad idea
Ok, this doesn't have to be a championship to be your memorable moment or anything like that. Maybe there were underlying factors that led to it being an incredible day of college football. Mine occurred on Sept 12, 2009.
I was rooming with my cousin at Central Michigan. CMU playing MSU in Spartan Stadium. When CMU recovered the onside kick it made our hearts race. Then MSU pulled a Sparty NOOOOOOOOOO and jumped offsides on a missed FG. CMU made the 2nd attempt and sent our campus into a frenzy.
Then we had to calm down, switch quickly to our Michigan gear, and watch another heart stopping thriller as Michigan pulled off the win over Notre Dame.
Later that night, Ohio State lost.
To recap, my school beat MSU, my favorite team beat Notre Dame, and OSU lost, meaning that the 3 schools I hate the most all lost, with 2 of the losses being in the dying seconds at the hands of my 2 favorite teams.
This is my favorite memory of college football thus far.
Let's hear yours.
