"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."

I was in High School last time that happened -- that was over three 'meh' big ten middlers -- the fact that this time TWO of the three were ranked teams, and that these are the same dudes who went 5-7 last year takes it to a whole new level!

I'm beginning to suspect that all these kids absorbing Harbaugh's stream-of-conciousness metaphors are beginning to synthesize new ones. Putting one's self into an Apache attack helicopter in camp could have come out of the mouth of the Master Himself....and I suspect player interviews are going to be much more entertaining over the years.

Late 70's, high school string quartet: Invited as guinea pigs to a Master Class with the Guarneri String Quartet in East Lansing. We borrowed the viola player's Dad's Mercedes sports car and tootled up to E Lansing to do the gig. Turned out it was MSU's homecoming and the dorms and frats were festooned with banners made out of bedsheets weighted down with beer cans.
We were dressed in suits, but as we passed more and more of these my buddies looked at each other and said "That one must come down". So I shinnied up a drainpipe to the second floor, snagged a "Go Spartans" banner and ran to the Mercedes just as the guys started running out of the building after us.
Man, that felt good. Cool story, me.

I'm the same age as Harbaugh --
We grew up in Michigan Stadium, not the Big House. Unless you are Keith Jackson, PLEASE call it Michigan Stadium.

I hadn't thought of that until reading what Hoke said in this presser...
Imagine a kid expected to be the savior of this program, injured in Game 1 of his college career; head coach/father figure(?) tells the press earlier in the week that he's going to play, ratcheting expectations up even higher, and then by Thursday or Friday, kid realizes that he's not gonna be able to make it and feels he let the coach down.
Not saying it happened that way, or that JP is too sensitive, but it might have been a little too rough to put the kid through, college big boy pants notwithstanding....

Best thing about it for me:
Having spent what feels like 5 or 6 YEARS in 3rd and Long, the fact that I can't even remember this play from two days ago makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.
