Ace - How much of an effect would hiring JH have on recruiting the 2015 class? Can you see any recruits that would (re)consider UM just because of his previous collegiate track record? It seems like the 2015 "transition" class might be sub-par and I was just wondering how a "home run" hire would effect things. Thanks.

DB needs to replace the Nazi general, in the WWI tank, that goes off the cliff in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (third movie).

Is it possible that President Schlissel is just gathering information, speaking with local ADs to get their thoughts (on how to go about the search)?

While I certainly would like to enjoy a Fall Saturday, watching the Maize & Blue kick some ass, I have gotten to know my dirt bikes once again. It's fun being outdoors and in the company of friends, as opposed to shoe gazing and wondering when we'll beat Rutgers...

On its own it may not be a fireable offense. However, it's another straw that's about to break the camel's back. I cannot imagine he speaks to the donors like this. He saves this type of vitriol just for the riff-raff (like me), apparently.

Yes, but as the Face of the AD, DB HAS to know that people will perceive him based on his responses. All he had to put into the email was something to the effect of; "Thanks for your thoughts/input. We always appreciate hearing from the fan base" and let it go at that. His response was meant to degrade. That's bad PR, period. His arrogant attitude, especially towards fans, has (or will) sealed his fate.

Yeah but isn't there some sort of forensic method to retrieve the files even after they've supposedly been "deleted"? I didn't think electronic files ever cease to exist. You just have to know where to look for them.

I take it your wife takes after her father? Otherwise, you're f*cked.
On second thought, you're just f*cked no matter how you look at it (football included).

Also note; both head couches agrued with the refs about calling a time-out (in the 4th quarter). Both denied calling a time-out yet the officials 'awarded' a time-out anyways. Big Ten!

I dunno about a "beatdown". After watching PSU move the ball on the 'nuts D and the 'nuts' O not looking stellar, The Game might be slightly interesting.

If you don't want the spicey heat, don't use less jalapeños, just remove the seeds. That's where the 'heat' is.

I watched the same game and pretty much thought the same thing. If that type of enforcement trickles down to the NCAA, several teams are going to either have to have their DBs back off some or they're going to pay a (high) price.

Firstly, I live in Chicago's NW 'burbs so I am happy this is happening. That said, if I were a season ticket holder, I would be upset mostly because it's a main rival. I can see how this game should be against Wisco, ND or Minnesota. I would still attend any of these games. I can't tell you how jealous I am of you who can go to Yost on a regular basis. It's on my bucket list but I don't see me attending a Yost game any time soon. When UIC was part of the CCHA, UM used to come to Chicago. That hasn't happened in a long time. The only UM game I've seen was the NCAA regional in Ft. Wayne a few years back. The atmosphere was great. I cannot imagine what Yost must be like. I'm wondering what it will be like in the Great Saucer of an NFL stadium. It's too bad they're not playing in the United Center. For those of you planning to attend, from out-of-state, you're welcome to crash at my place. I have a guest room and a loft. We can take Metra downtown and take the bus to Soldier Field (or drive).

My mistake, the ASC is qualifying at the Circuit of the Americas, in Austin TX, before the ASC begins. They are not at IMS. Based on the team's FB pictures, Austin looks a lot like IMS. My apoligies.

My mistake, the ASC will be visiting the Circuit of the Americas, in Austin TX, before the ASC begins. Apparently the team is confused as well. They're referring to IMS as the Circuit of the Americas on their FB page.

The Northwestern DB commit is Parrker Westphal. Parrker and Ty are cousins. By chance, I met Parrker's dad, Sam. We had a nice chat about recruiting long before Parrker commited to NW. Sam was not very impressed with they way Ty handled his recruitment. You'll notice Parrker handled his much differently. I provided Brian/Ace with Sam's contact info. Perhaps they should reach out and see if they can get some insight.
