"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."
Shamelessly reappropriated from Rocky Top Talk.

Sorry for the slow day; I'm painstakingly assembling all the articles about 2009 recruits I have stored up so that the 2009 recruiting board can make a debut soon. Corrections appreciated.
At first glimpse: there are five unused spots, ten scholarship players see their eligibility expire, and there are two or three potential fifth years who probably won't be asked back. 18 or so scholarships are available right now and with normal attrition Michigan should again be signing close to a full class.
/strong> Miscounted the OL; there are 15. Troy Woolfolk did not redshirt last year. Yes, there are twelve starters on each side of the ball.
Update: Removed Boren, moved Evans to sophomore -- he did not redshirt.
Update: Removed Quintin Patilla, who transferred to GVSU.
