"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."
If you have any other good links to share, please do. We still have 72 hours until The Game which is entirely too long IMO.
Go Blue, Beat OSU!
Sad story coming out of Columbus today, as following one of OSU's traditions to jump into Mirror Lake the week of The Game, which is done by thousands of students each year, one of the students suffered a cardiac arrest and after being rushed to the hospital, passed away. Even though we're always rivals on and off the field, we can acknowledge that some things transcend football and, as shown last week with the Chad Carr stickers, we are still one human family.
Prayers go out to the Buckeyes and especially the family and friends of this student.
Edit: Update: OSU has said it will cancel the Mirror Lake jump tradition.
EDSBS always has great takes, and Ryan Nanni nailed it:
On MGoRadio and one of the posts the other day, Brian noted how pleasantly surprised he's been by the receiving corps this year. I remember back in the summer how our WR group was a huge question mark and people were pretty worried that they'd hold us back. However, they've really come on in the last few games and have been the prime reason we've won these last couple, it seems.
With that in mind, who/what have been the most pleasant surprises on the team this year?
I'm going to go with Jedd Fisch. He was one of the few hires that most people on the board didn't know much about but he's been outstanding. There have been very few head scratching calls in a row and I don't recall a game this year where the fans could spot a bad coaching/play-calling job. I really hope we can keep him around for a few more years, although I'm not optimistic that'll happen given his ambitions.
I am glad he didn't, obviously, but if this happened to Rudddddddock I would have been livid. This resulted in Hackenberg being "shaken up", although I do think the attention was more focused on his neck than his "probable, mild concussion."
It sure looks like Henry has plenty of chance to not drive his head directly at a guy who is clearly falling to the ground already.
Also, I will give you a post below this, please neg it (if you feel so inclined) so your vote actually counts instead of this one.
