"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."
I'm not a big fan of Deadspin. Thought Leitch was okay, dislike Dauliero and the KSK guys, -- the Realests said it best when they dubbed 'em "savages" -- hate the commenters.
But Clay's always been a smart, funny writer. His Sportsline column was quite good, and his initial posts on Deadspin are promising. Also he asked me to be in a quiz bowl.
