"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."
UTL Game is on BTN
I'd better go set the DVR. This could be the last time that I'll get to see it
are you dying?
this was hilarious. but, man, how bad would you have felt if he was...
He'd have died happy.
Don't know how to imbed, but my favorite clip; last drive with Don Criqui (westwood one's ND broadcast) voiced over.
He's also in denial after the red signals a TD. It's brilliant.
Will never get old. I think I need to get Criqui's full broadcast!
I think I could go for a full 3 hours of schadenfreude with Mr. Criqui.

after halftime. First half is draining.
Probably the most exciting game I've ever watch. One for the ages.
Fourth quarter on now.
We just burned our first time out and the announcer goes, "Those final 2 timeouts are going to be important at the end of the game." Halol. Little does he know
Denard: "Should we deploy the cloaking device now, coach?"
Hoke: "Not yet. Wait for it..."
This never gets old.
But it draws me in. This was one of the best days of my life. Pure magic.
That tackle Woolfolk made with 3:47 left may have been the play of the game.
That's the beauty of this game. There were about 20 "plays of the game". And that was just in the last 5 minutes.
Will forever give me happy thoughts.
I swear I thought I was the only one
Damn, ND just scored. We're finished. :-(
A live blog.
I think we can go 80 yards in 30 seconds. I really do.
We were lucky that a clip was not called at the end of Gallon's catch. Any other game but the magic UTL and we would have.
Thought the same thing
At half time...but damn was I fuckin jacked after!!
I never realized how close the ball was from getting knocked out by gray on the winning roundtree catch. He actually loosens the ball but roy does a great job of holding on too it.
How fitting that the game winning touchdown was scored in front of the ND section. F*ck those guys.
When awesome stuff happens in my corner.
Ah I love this game but those jerseys still annoy me
Not me. I love them!
Go home! The game is ovah!!
Chris Everitt is fantastic.
and by chris i mean steve. shit.
Chris was pretty awesome too.
For all the complaining about the crowd I'd say they did a great Jon that night.
Who wouldn't want to play in front of that?
You can tell the crowd was loud and insane but it's kind of hidden on the TV broadcast. Ever since the big games got switched to "ESPN on ABC" a few years back, the crowd noise is drowned out more. Compare it to an ABC game from the 90's, you can tell a major difference.
The game itself, I'll always regret trying to get tickets. I assumed they would have cost a fortune so I didn't bother. Looking back at it now, it would have been worth it to go into debt.
Yeah, there are some games for which you can't put a price. '97 OSU obviously was one. This was another. It's hard to describe what it felt like to be there.
Having to watch this over and over or little giants?
It's what they deserve. ESPN Classic played the 1990 game (28-24 loss in the 4th quarter, ref measuring with an index card, ricocheted pass and catch going 60 yards for ND) non stop for a decade.
We paid our dues. Now let ND be subjected to UTL until 2022.
