"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."

|12 weeks 3 days ago||First off, hats off to the||
First off, hats off to the defense. They played their tails off last night and did what they had to do. Only giving up 17 points on the road against a team that most likely had a chip on their shoulder, you really couldn't ask for much more.
The receivers look like they will be able to get the job done. We finally got a glimpse of Chesson's speed that we were raving about when he signed, Jake Butt is awesome as expected, Darboh looks like another reliable person to move the chains when needed, and Grant Perry will only get better as the season moves along.
Pass protection wise, the offensive line is much better than last season. We still need work in the running game, but you can see the improvement.
This brings me to the backfield. This wasn't the same case as Devin where he was beaten to a pulp every time he dropped back. Ruddock had more than enough time, but just couldn't get the job done last night. Outside of the first interception, there was the four throws that pretty much doomed our team from winning. I'm not calling for Shane to come in now, I just hope they go back in and emerge from the submarine next week and play more to Jake's strengths.
That is all moot though when the running game is still as bad as it was. The run blocking isn't at "Jim Harbaugh Ass-Kicking" levels yet, but when you get some of the holes we had last night, you have to hit them, and the RBs just didn't. Maybe Utah's run defense is just that good, even with what they had to replace, but I'm leaning towards the side of these guys just don't have it.

FHSAA hosts their state title games there, and the new Orlando MLS team is going to play there.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I can recall two times||
1. Clockgate. I was watching the game on a little TV in my grandma's kitchen. The events unfolded and 10 year old me stormed up the stairs and bawled myself to sleep.
2. 05 Rose Bowl. My heart was pretty much ripped out of me during that 4th quarter. I was at a family BBQ and just went outside and cried.
Because of my age, Bo's death didn't have the same effect on me as others, but that weekend was a pretty bummed weekend, especially after the loss (which then turned to a bummed week when we lost in the state championship against Nouvel)
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Good job boys||
Do everything you can to try and keep that pick
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Don't worry Seth||
Devin is of-age.
So everyone within 4 miles of Ann Arbor should get on their job if they see him out one night.
EDIT: and I realized what you meant about eligible after I posted, stupid NCAA.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Whoa||
I will not allow you to put my school (B-CU) in the same mention of the other schools, especially when we will most likely beat 3 of those schools.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I'm surprised there wasn't a||
I'm surprised there wasn't a Marshall Henderson segment.
Which makes me think, has there ever been a Marshall Henderson segment? Dude's Twitter is exactly how you think it would be.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Why did we go to a 4 guard||
Why did we go to a 4 guard offense? That is what puzzles me the most.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Okay, I'm going to be honest.||
I'm scared now.
Gus + March + What just happened + What happened in Happy Valley = Nervous Me.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||I'm already at the office||
Working on these videos for our (Bethune-Cookman) signing day bash down here off little sleep.Today is going to be loooooooong.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||My cousin got interviewed||
So while I'm disappointed the game got called, I'm satisfied.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||I know I can't see far for anything||
But I must be the only person who can tell the difference between the players and field during Boise games.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||The funny part about it to me||
Is that Goodwin is an Olympian. It's like here's a great chance to show some pride in America, and the marine makes it his mission to slide over and voice his displeasure.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||I don't think no one is calling for his job||
But you would have thought that he learned that running up the middle with Vincent "Devin" Smith against a high-cailber defense is just not a great idea by now.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||I'm ready for Florida and BG||
I wanna see how the Brady/Henson QB model works out for Florida
|3 years 13 weeks ago||To be fair||
Boise has been doing well in the passing game. They just cannot run the ball at all.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Problem with that..||
is that it's going to move so quick that anyone will not be able to read it because they can't screen any comments.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Bill O'Brien||
They have to commit to Bill O'Brien for the next 10 years now don't they? I mean can you really fire someone who took the job not knowing what's going to happen to the program, and then this bomb is dropped on him.
I'm shocked right now.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||You know...||
I'm not upset that we're going to miss out on Fuller. We have enough D...
You know what, you can never have enough DBs.
|3 years 32 weeks ago||Where at?||
I fell asleep last night and missed the set? I looked on the Coachella youtube page and they didn't have it.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||That's not the sad thing about this||
It seems like Jacob Pullen has turned into Braylon on his Twitter
EDIT: I went from good to funny to sad in about 10 seconds. I couldn't make up my mind.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Well, here's an update||
The person running it realized bots came into play for both gifs, suspended voting, and is coming up with a decision on Monday.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||I was ready to vote for Will…||
and then I seen the tail.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Just saw on Twitter that...||
it's 2-0 for the good guys right now.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||It's suppose to be 54 and partly cloudy on Sunday||
As long as it doesn't rain, I have a good place they can put it.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Just did it and I'm all set||
They give until April 2nd to enter the code, so spread the word to everyone.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Wow||
Is this is what it feels like to be Texas during the winter/spring?
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Who let those Buckeyes in?||
|3 years 45 weeks ago||This picture makes me happy on the inside||
Good times are ahead indeed
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Oh god||
If everyone comes back and the freshmen come in and play like we expect, next year could be a special year on campus for the athletic department.
