"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 sure hope that David Pollack doesn't stick around for much longer. He and Herbstreit seem to go at it from time to time, and I think Kirk will win out if he openly voices opposition to Pollack, to the ESPN suits.
Pollack is a ridiculous homer, his opinions border on belligerent when someone else objects, and he really has no redeeming qualities. He's not likable or funny either.
At least Dez is on the panel to counteract Pollack.

I actually like this kind of disrespekt...subtle, so it's not overtly annoying to the average viewer, but you know it really infuriates some of the long-standing, hardcore Sparties (all 3 of them).

Maryland at Michigan State - There will literally be hundreds in attendance to watch this one go down.
Haha, very nicely done.

Thanks for the heads up. Just booked a flight to Des Moines. Got a great deal and the honeymoon suite for a steal at the Hampton Inn.

FiveThirtyEight has us at a 7% chance of making the CFP.
Rooting priority is definitely:
1) Just win, Michigan!
2) Chaos everywhere else
3) Need OSU and Iowa to go undefeated, so our end-of-season wins look that much more impressive to the committee by comparison (think OSU's dismantling of Wisco in the B1G Champ last year)
A lot of big if's, but really makes for an exciting November.

It depends...give me your mesurables. I need to know things like:
- How many throws do you complete to stangers across State St, during pre-game tailgates?
- What's your beer pong make %?
- Is your name Gary Nova?
- Do you eat steak and drink whole milk daily?
- Have you ever thrown a football with 110,000 people watching?
- How's your butt?

I think we were making similar comparisons during Chris Clark's recruitment. He ended up everywhere other than Michigan.
Again, not apples to apples b/c there's obviously some real weird stuff going on with Clark, but this stat alone won't determine where Nauta plays next year.

Yeah, I thought the OP was going to tell us that AJ Williams was going to change his last name to "If", in order to make our TE sets more pun-worthy.

I see those open receiver over-throws in my nightmares. It's tough. 5 of them on the season, and if we connect on 1 or 2, we're definitely undefeated.
Growing up, watching the Michigan teams of the 90s and early 00s, I felt like we couldn't MISS a deep ball. Every time it went up, you knew some hoss was going to come down with it or it was going to catch a receiver in-stride.
Now it's just...different. We'll connect on a huge one against OSU and it'll be all gravy hopefully.

Yeah, I read it as First Teeny All American. Needs time to fill out his frame, NFL scouts.

Edit: Completely missed the point of the article the first time around.
This unnamed coach sounds like a sandbagging salesman - set the bar low, lower the goal, and then crush it for a big payday.
Thankfully, Harbaugh Always Be Closing.
