"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."

Babers walked into a buzzsaw of offensive talent. There are a lot of people out there that could have done just as much as him on that team.

Sponsors are what make all these bowls possible and keep college football on throughout the holiday season so I'm not opposed to that..
I just wish they would stop calling the bowl by the sponsor's name. Instead of the Motel 6 Catcus Bowl, why don't they call it The Cactus Bowl (brought to you by Motel 6)

At least he was efficient in getting off the field. Better than acting hurt and dragging it out. Reminded me of Aldon Smith... except it was after bad plays.

I think you're crazy if you think Urban Meyer lost that game on purpose just to fuck Michigan over.

I had a buddy who's wife went to Spencer's Gifts and got these tampon flasks. Filled a few of them up with the good stuff and that kept him warm. I promise nobody will fuck with those at security.

There is a NYT article from March 2014 with these numbers. I also know an official who has done MAC games and while I never asked how much he made, he has said that they are responsible for their own travel. So it's not exactly a lucrative job.

Right now, B1G officials make around $3k-$4k for 60 minutes of play. So that's $35k-$40k for a season of officiating. In my opinion, not the amount of money that will entice someone to work hard at their craft and strive for greatness.
I think they need to incentivize quality officiating. Give them their normal $35k-$40k for officiating games, but then allow teams to review the officials after each game. These reviews can be combined to create an aggregate "score" for each official at the end of the season so that they are judged over the entirety of the season. Give bonuses to officials based on performance review.

Hell no. They don't try to enforce targeting because they actually care about the safety of the players. It's merely to create the illusion that they care about player safety. It's like TSA who are there to give you a sense of security.
I've seen WAY too many players speared in the head this year go uncalled and OVERTURNED to believe the NCAA cares about player safety.

Officiating has become a clown show. They can take all sorts of classes and receive step-by-step instruction on how they want targeting called... but they'll still fuck it up.
They'll continue to fuck it up until they are held responsible for calling a bad game.

Adding to that:
19 games since that loss in '87.
Michigan has outscored IU 696-305. 2 shutouts.
That's an average score of 36.5 -- 16... Which sounds about right for this weekend.

Most people I know in Ohio who have received a DUI for their first time avoid jail time. The 3 day class + suspension of license + fine is pretty normal.

Coach Durkin has been awesome to have. He's probably the most excited guy on the field. I love how he jumps around like crazy when the defense makes a big play.
