"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."

Naturally. People were fed up with the ticket increases, the less than great schedules (though that's Martin's fault as well), the silly PR gaffes, the horrendously bad attempts at modern marketing by idiot-in-chief, Hunter Lochmann, and the other low lights of Dave's era. However, if that was the cost of business for Saban/Meyer/Harbaugh-like success, people would have grumbled, called Brandon an ass in the parking lot, and watched Michigan roll to Big Ten championships.
But with those results? It just looked like Dave had zero idea what he was doing and was living off previous success while trying to implement his vision. And his vision for non-revenue programs still looks like a big question mark at this point, as few other programs have had success as a result of his actions.

Well, technically, I think Auburn did get caught. It's just that the NCAA is toothless and the SEC doesn't give a shit.
Nor should they in this environment.

Jeez Baloo, you've brought back literally every RichRod supporter from the days of 2010. This is vintage board material. I'm swooning with nostalgia.

Agreed. Rich crybabies.

Thanks man, I sure am!

The rare post that hits the "Why do we have so many out of state students" whine (read: money, higher academic profile, desire) and vague hints at xenophobia. Impressive.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||That's some mighty big||
That's some mighty big optimism. I like it. But that's because everything else is so dismal and depressing.

This article references the event you're talking about. The left side of the Badget line last year was very solid, but the right side was young and pretty inexperienced.
At this point, I don't know how anyone can definitively say this isn't somewhat on Funk. Ever since he lost Molk, the line has looked like absolute garbage. I don't know what is wrong with the interior line - if Bryant, Braden, someone, needs to come in - but it's clearly the major issue on offense.

Great, thanks. I probably should just learn to look in your signature.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||Seth, what is your email||
Seth, what is your email address again? I've moved since I received HTTV Football, and I don't HTTV The Rest going to my previous, terrible address.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||So my sort-of drunk comment||
So my sort-of drunk comment during the game, "Damnit, when are they going to call holding against them!" doesn't seem so crazy and homer-ish now? Good to hear.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||It might have something to do||
It might have something to do with Buffalo Billiards being a terrible, terrible bar.
I'm all for the transition to RFD.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||Aggies always seem like||
Aggies always seem like perfectly nice people...but I can't help but feel uncomfortable every time I see or hear about the cadets/yell leaders.
It all seems...kind of weird.

Sky is still blue, grass, green, and bouje is still very much bouje.

Of course if the refs had caught one of the most ridiculously blatant blocks in the back on a kickoff return during the Outback Bowl...yeah, that Ace Sanders TD is called back.
Which should have happened.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Avery being out two weeks is||
Avery being out two weeks is kind of really not good for a certain game happening soon. Can Tommy forget how to throw again please?
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Jourdan Lewis could be our||
Jourdan Lewis could be our backup LCB? Hmmm. I know they'll play nickel in coverage more likely than putting him on the field, but yeah, freshman DB do not want.
No offense to Jourdan of course.

I enjoy the terrified eye of the Iowa DB. All hail the crippling fear that is encompassing this poor corn lad!
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I don't know, I guess I just||
I don't know, I guess I just don't buy into the pre-season hype. I think Amara would have been a nice weapon to have this year, but he might have accounted for 20 catches at most, unless he was an absolute breakout star.
I keep remembering looking at Jackson, Savoy, and any number of other outside WRs that never panned out, despite their size and practice rumbles.
I do hope Darboh becomes a star next year, but I'll wait until he's making the catches.

He was all over South Quad too during that time period. Mostly in the cafeteria. Mostly...yech.

Gallon? Funchess? Dileo? The equally unproven Chesson? Saying he has no one to throw to is a bit on the ridiculous side.

Pretty sure this is his twitter handle: http://twitter.com/chrisrambles1
Timing of that Gibbons tweet with his other "interests" and topics line it up pretty well.

Thoughts on when we should? I could do it now or later, whichever is easier for you.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||So, I'm moving soon. When||
So, I'm moving soon. When the Basketball/Hockey books do go out, how would I change my address? Should I change my address? Should I assume USPS will forward on package type materials to my new address if I do automatic forwarding.

Well, you did a pretty good job of unleashing the conservatives on this thread. Now it's all sticky in here.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||This is the second time I've||
This is the second time I've seen a Wings fan say this, and I really don't get it. I mean, how often do you hear of Hawks fans pooping in coolers, or throwing shit at opposing fanbases. Just because we think Detroit sucks, does not mean there isn't at least grudging respect for the Red Wings.
Also, I'm not really sure what about Kane is particularly unlikable. Yeah, he's a bro, a drunk, and an idiot, but he's been 18 - 24 during almost all of that time. Would you rather he be Crosby? He also focused in over the offseason and lockout quite a bit, maturing a sizeable amount.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Ah what a beautiful win. I||
Ah what a beautiful win. I never had anything against the Bruins until this series and really enjoyed their win over the Nucks two years ago. But after dealing with Chara, Lucic, and Seguin this series? Yeah, fuck 'em.

If I might ask a question: I'm a Cubs fan. I do not enjoy the White Sox much. On paper, the Tigers should be about 10 games up over the White Sox (or, say Indians, games not played on paper, etc.). What would you Tigers fans most attribute to the problems the Tigers have had this season? Seemed like a real solid club heading into the season.

I wasn't a real college football fan until college. Rooting for Iowa and Northwestern when you stop jerking off on Saturdays doesn't count.
I rooted for OSU vs. Miami in '02.
Now I has a sad.
