"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."

Hate to say it, but Nick RoUMel knocked it out of the park.

Because USC took Stanford lightly. Ohio State lives for this game. It's time we do the same.

|1 day 11 hours ago||Hardly anybody is a legend||
Hardly anybody is a legend while they are playing. And if they've achieved legendary status as an active player, the last thing they should be asked to do is change their number. That would have been absurd for Denard to change from #16 in his senior year.

I hate the whole "earning" of a number idea. Nobody had to "earn" the #1 until Braylon came along. Just because he needed external motivation doesn't mean that everybody from that point forward needs to "earn" it as well.

I didn't know that was a thing. I do know it has been worn by many non-CBs since Woodson's departure -- including punters and kickers -- but I guess that was all pre-Hoke. Given that Hoke started it, is it still a thing? And if so, why isn't Peppers or Lewis wearing it?

I'm sure they were "asked" but they realistically had no choice.

How do we justify not retiring Anthony Carter's #1? It's gotta be all or nothing imho, which why I'm a proponent of tastefully displaying names (not numbers) on the facade of the press box.

|1 day 12 hours ago||The Legends jersey numbers||
The Legends jersey numbers should have been made available for anyone to wear, not just established players. Not only that, but players such as Jake Ryan should have been given an opportunity to create a legacy in their own number rather than being forced to change to a Legends jersey midstream.

Has anyone ever wondered why the 2 and 1 were so far apart on his jersey?

Uh....why did he feel the need to start his post off with "Uh...." though?

Also, the kicker Pat Moons' helmet was devoid of stickers. I love the stickers, but they're giving out way too many.

I'm not sure why, but I remember being able to tune in CBS on 87.9 on the FM dial back in the day.

Every time I watch that, I get nervous Kolesar is going to step out at the one.

Not having a tasteful and simplistic Ring of Honor a la Lambeau Field is a real missed opportunity to honor past Michigan greats, while adding to the intimidation factor of playing in Michigan Stadium.

Remember #1 on Northwestern from a couple years ago? He was a pretty big fella himself.

For as many calls as the replay booth gets wrong, I'd just assume they drop replay altogether. Replay officials are more interested in covering for their on field brethren than they are in getting the call right. Ultimately, it's just not worth the extra time it takes to review a play and makes the games almost unwatchable. Hire a few more on field officials and just hope for the best.
