"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."
It was posted lower on the Board that the NYC event was last night. I saw some people were disappointed that they did not know about it, so I figured I would post a FYI regarding the Chicago event.
Hosted by the Chicago - University of Michigan Club.
Tuesday, June 14 · 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile
Last info that was emailed yesterday said that the event is going to have a great turnout, and they have stopped doing phone or internet tickets. However, they did say that there will be limited tickets available at the door. Cash $50. I assume you could at least try to call/email to confirm.
Just a heads up. I will be there and hope more can make it. Go Blue!
in this article: http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/27947/better-tradition-colorado... espn debates which is a better tradition - our players coming down the tunnel and jumping to the GO BLUE banner or something w/ a mascot named ralphie. i am an avid college football fan, have been for more than 25 years, and have never heard of colorado's mascot's name. anyway, vote and crush them.
Mod Edit: Fixed the title to make it more informative.
on ESPN at 2pm. Should be interesting to say the least. Maybe?
With DB stating that he wants to enclose the southern part of Michigan Stadium with bleachers to expand capacity close to 120,000, I can't stop thinking about what that would look like.
I am perplexed at what it might look like though because the new scoreboards will block seating in the middle of the new proposed section. Since nobody will want an obstructed view, it seems like the bowl would be broken.
Are there any other stadiums that have this sort of seating arrangement that we can look to? Are there any MGoArchitechtes out there who could do at least an ariel diagram of how the seating would look?
Luke Fickell had his first press conference (Link:http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=6657897 ) and denied any knoweldge of of player violations. Seriously? Given how blatant Pryor's violations were, is it possible anymore to beleive that the whole staff and compliance department had no knoweldge of what was going on? It is either incompetence or willful ignorance. The OSU head coaching job may be his dream job, but given the growing nature of the scandal, the level of instiutional self-denial about the seriousness of the problem there and the growing likelyhood that the NCAA will drop the hammer on them, it is hard to see Luke Fickell keeping the job beyond this season. As this thing progresses it is easy to see an outcome where their board of regents simply says enough is enough and completely cleans house.
