"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."
And about to get pummeled by us. Look at their Depth Chart:
8 freshmen/sophomores on Offense - Zero seniors
7 freshment/sophomores on Defense - Zero seniors - All Freshman DBs...
[mod edit: these numbers appear to be outdated (by a year) but even if they're sophomores it's better than a team of seniors... right? riiiiiight?]
Previews are on. So far. They are Bullish on OSU, IOWA, and WISKY...
Called out TP for being inconsistent
Love John Clay
Boner for Stanzi
They think it may be a good idea to start DG... Idiots
This is the kind of stuff that can kill a program. I'm sure we won't be so lucky and UF will be fine, but damn, give me a 3 star kid that grows into a hard working front line player anyday over these 5-star egos.
Just strolling (not trolling) through some UCONN blogs and came across the following
Q: Wondering if it would be wise to have a couple practices down at the Rent with the PA system screaming loud. That way the offense can get used to hearing calls while 100,000+ fans are trying to distract them. - Weyuo, CT
A: I'm sure they'll be prepared for crowd noise but my understanding is they'll be playing in front of more of a, well, wine and cheese crowd from what I understand. For such a big place it's pretty quiet on gameday. Either way I'm almost sure they'll prepare for what it could be.
Wine and cheese type crowd? Really? This is bulletin board material for us fans!
I was at the DEC meeting today where David Brandon spoke. Both he and Brandy for some reason repeatedly referred to MIchigan State as that school in East Lansing, or otherwise refused to use the school's name. They both had no problem referring to any other school by name. It was clear that they thought it was amusing to do this, but isn't this giving the Michigan State University Spartans too much credit? At best they are only number three on the rivalry list (at least when it comes to football): 1) OSU, 2) Notre Dame, 3)MSU?
Michigan State, MSU, Spartans . . . . .
Hmmm . . . nope no deatheaters have appeared.
