"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."

Just type "SEC", much quicker.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I've been several times over the years||
The first time was 97, one of the most enjoyable games of my life. We've leaving from NYC on Friday, may stop at the casino in Bethelem on the way. Usually hotels are a huge issue, have always had to stay at least 40 mins away but this year I booked early, it must have been at least 9 months ago, and I scored what must have been a mistake rate, $90 a night 2 night minimum at the Hampton inn right in happy valley.
We got seats through athletic department upper level endzone, so we sold those on stub hub and got 35/40 yd line seats, last row of lower level, about 180 a pop. If you're going to go you might as well get good seats.
Last time I went was when RR made Mcgloin look like a superstar, hope it goes better this time.

You know, the games? You guys are so funny.

that is huge.

unless you're from that area?
Of course your point is right, Chelsea fans, of which I am one (admittedly a recent addition, just started following the EPL last few years), are spoiled. On the other hand, and for those who may not be so familiar with whats going on, it would be somewhat akin to the Seattle Seahawks having THE worst defense in the NFL this year. Its really impossible to understand how their defense got this bad this quickly. And well Ivanovic is a disaster.

People bad fans and I certainly wouldn't here, I've been to less than 10 UM hockey games in my life. That said....90 minutes round trip really?
Isn't it really that people just don't care that much? All these folks including yourself who would pack Yost apparently don't care enough to make it to the Joe. I suspect you would have made that drive for basketball.

I don't think this suggests anything, but we're not getting Costello.

Russell did not have better college numbers than Manning. He had one huge season. He also really only played 2 years.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||That is completely wrong||
No offense but are you drunk? Or did you just make that up?
In return for the #2 pick in that draft they gave up the # 6 pick in that draft, a second rounder in that draft, and their first rounders in the next 2 drafts which turned out to be picks #23 and #2.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||This guy isn't Jackie||
This guy isn't Jackie Robinson. And saying you hope this becomes a trend? Why? How would that benefit you and/or Michigan? What would it do? Extend recruiting season into the summer, ie screw coaches, waste money, result in lower tier guys not knowing if they have a spot, delay walkons from knowing their situation. The benefits? Maybe a couple hundred kids have more flexibility and maybe a few of those change their minds for reasons other than that the wind blew a different direction on a given day. While we're at it I think we should let kids already in school freely transfer. Coaches will know their actual roster on the first day of practice when they see who shows up.

my daughter is 8.5 and just started playing the recorder, I guess she's a lost cause at this point. The good news is my son is 4.5 so your post is in the nick of time, I'm starting him on the tuba tomorrow (I figure the more unusual instruments will curry even more favor with admissions departments). Thanks for the advice!

|42 weeks 4 days ago||Sorry||
Why is this a bad thing? It's great for the kid. The smart thing to do would be to commit somewhere now and "lock" up a spot. Then assuming the school doesn't go back on its word (a big if) he's got a free education even if ends up not otherwise being any good. If they do drop him later he'll be in no worse position than if had never committed. And if things go well and he gets other offers in the years to come he can always reconsider his choice. OR he (ie his parents) can just ignore the whole thing. What's the problem?

|43 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not saying||
That Twitter and/or the digital age is a good thing. As someone addicted to my phone (for work and personal reasons). I acknowledge as a real problem. But to deny its power and pervasiveness (which you seem to have done in the first post and are coming off of in the 2nd post and just saying you don't like it) is silly.
But you're still really wrong about Twitter to the point that I question whether you've spent any real time with it. For one thing you keep focusing on the 140 character thing, ignoring that writers link to their articles constantly. Twitter is an alert system and a portal.

Guy who insults people about what they spend 100 bucks a year. Unreal

as Magnus said if you're a casual fan mgoblog is fine. Some people want more than that.

With which info makes its way over here.
Beyond that you seem to be saying that you don't really value recruiting info, well then sure, you should pay for it. Obviously people have different interests.

Incredibly wrong on this topic.

not surprisingly there's starting to be crystal balls for him to Syracuse.

Griese, Backus, Hutch, Adami and Howard, thats 5 O starters right there. Only 4 of the 11 O starters were from the Big 10 states. Fyi Tuman was from Kansas and Shaw Cali I believe.
The D was more Big 10 state oriented. Hendricks, Hall, Josh Williams and Dhani were from outside. So half the starters were from outside the Big 10 area. Most of those guys played in the pros too btw.
