"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."

they still do that in football? I haven't seen it in a while now, so I just figured that it, like the spead, was dead.
|5 years 1 week ago||Anybody else notice||
the stadium lights? They look great - not overbearing or out of place, just fitting perfectly into the design of the towers. Very nice.

to your horrifying hypothetical is Sheridan...
|5 years 3 weeks ago||No||
Thank the holder for recognizing the bad snap and adjusting accordingly to get the ball in good position for the kick. And to that point, perhaps the special teams coach (!!!) gets some thanks too, eh?
|5 years 3 weeks ago||When significantly more||
When significantly more people are betting one side of the line, and the line doesn't move (as it tends to do depending on where the money goes), then the "smart betters" or "high rollers" (if you will) are betting the other side. It means, usually, that the line isn't so obviously a lock as it seems.
In this case, Illinois seemed like the obvious choice (getting 3ish when they seem like they should win). This led to a mojority of the "small money" being put on the Illinois. However, the "big money" was put on Michigan (to keep the line as constant as it has been). This usually alludes to the "pros" (who do way more research and thus more winning) knowing something the general public does not (in this case, Illinois doesn't defend the spread well - at all).

Wasn't Obi playing the Strong-side OLB because Roh was at DE this week? This is how I saw the base defensive package:
DE: Roh, Van Bergen
CB: Rogers, Avery (!!)
Deep Safety: Vinopal

Hey now, something that doesn't exist can't be more competent.

I understand completely. As I drove to work (ugh, night shift) and listened to the game I found my oddly calm. I was disappointed, but not surprised. Gone was the fire I felt when we made a poor play in games/years past. Gone was my celebrating when we scored or the defense stepped up (the one frigging time it did). It was almost...disinterest. Which of course isn't entirely true, but I just can't bring myself to get too attached to this team anymore. Maybe it's a defense mechanism after last year, but I find myself waiting for the fall after offensive/defensive success rather than enjoying the moment.
Watching and listening to this game was like watching the scene in Empire Strikes Back when Han gets frozen in carbonite - there are some bad ass moments ("I love you.", "I know") but overall it's just sad.

I'm switching to it as well. I currently have the Blackberry Storm, which is rather meh. I'm very very excited to get a Droid.

I'm pretty sure you just broke the third rule of MGoBlog. The first and second being "Don't talk about MGoBlog", for which I have to punish myself as is.
But seriously, what the hell possessed you to bring politics into a discussion about sports and marketing?

Nah, I'm far enough away that radiation is a minor enough concern while I GTFO.
But in all seriousness it'd be really fucking hard to do any serious damage. It would require military grade hardware and very deep knowledge of the plant infrastructure. And even then, you'd have to get past the security forces on site.
Now if you managed to do all that, you'd still have to find a way to breach the primary containment concrete wall and then breach the reactor vessel itself. It'd be insanely complicated and you'd likely die/be captured in the process long before you could do anything really damaging.
But it would make my job suck for a long time. So please don't.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||Well...||
since I'm currently sitting at my desk, staring out my window at the Reactor Building here on the premises of the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station - I'm pretty sure I'd be worried about my job just a wee bit.
|5 years 33 weeks ago||I respectfully request nobody||
I respectfully request nobody blows up the local nuclear plant, because it sucks when your job gets blow'd up. And I really like my job.
