"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."

You mean bury thing like Denard? Taylor, Tousiant? and Zone reads?
|4 years 12 weeks ago||Really?||
If you asked Rodriguez and Dave Brandon they would have said it was over in January.
|4 years 36 weeks ago||NO MUPPETS?||
You can have my muppets when you pry them from my cold, dead fingers. Enjoy your cold shower buzz killington, but this victory, and each subsequent one, deserves videos of Jim Hensons arm up Kermits a$$ singing songs of celebration.

His review of Razor Sharp
|4 years 45 weeks ago||4INTs 1TD||
Yup. Only reason I remember is because it was a bit of a headscratcher for John to start with two healthy experienced QB's ahead of him.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Coach Kelly||
Iv'e heard that everytime someone decommits from ND a kitten dies.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Hope in one hand, spit in the other.||
Unless Kelly has another student death or personally gets a cheerleader pregnant ND will rise from the ashes of mediocrity. Brian Kelly is great at finding raw gems and turning them into studs. Tony Pike was 4th on the depth chart at Cincy and flourished under Kelly. Lefevour was putting up Tebo esque numbers at CMU. The guy can flat out recruit, evaluate, and develop talent.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Clarification||
I wasn't trying to make the comparison academically. The Forciers are devoted to themselves being quarterbacks first and foremost. If you doubt this please check out thier website. If the school is not compliant in fulfilling this destiny they will find one that is. Tate's roadblock at Michigan is obviously different than Jasons, but the result will be the same. I really thought Tate would be able to pass Denard on the depth chart in Borges offense. Sadly that is now water under the bridge, irrelevant, moot. The word "bollocks" was invented to express how I feel right now.

hmm, this all seems vaguely familiar...(cough)Jason(cough) Oh well you know what they say "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me three times and roofies were involved"
|4 years 45 weeks ago||real answer this time||
If you have to pick between a good OC or a good DC you shouldn't be a head coach. I just want the O to bail out the D when they have a bad game and vice versa.
Another gratuitous Ginger

|4 years 45 weeks ago||giddy as a school girl||
you people are so easy to please. from morose to moths on crack with just a little good news. Thankfully the defense cannot be worse, but I wont be expecting top 20 just yet.
now let the good news keep coming.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||How much info?||
Marell Evans a two star Carr recruit left the team prior to the 2009 season over what he perceived as a lack of playing time and coaching uncertainty. He left with no ill will against then Coach Rodriguez.
Scout has an article on this breaking development but it is behind the dreaded wall of pay.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Looks like we already know this answer||
I do look forward to future slapdowns of the Drew "Hater" Sharp
|4 years 45 weeks ago||preaching to the choir, you're doin it||
|4 years 45 weeks ago||yesssss||
In accordance with your comment I have plussed you 1 Mgopoint. spend it wisely.
Lets be honest, how many of you would still cheer the team if Saban was our coach. We would find a way to keep our disdain for the coach living in hormony with our love for the team.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Don't forget this||
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Rule #1||
First rule of coaching, never follow a legend. Even if you are the greatest coach ever, all your actions will be evaluated with WWLC do. You can never be as good as the Legendary Coach. Let someone else be the sacrificial goat.
Regarding your original question. There is nothing Joefan can do to get a coach hired or fired short of pictures with a dead hooker or a live boy. Alumni Donors and then former players have all the swag when it comes to moving coaches. So just buy your M-gear along with the occasional ticket, sit in the back of the bus and pipe down.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Just some National||
Just some National Championship goodies. Beer stien and a sweatshirt. The wife decided the shirt would be good for painting in.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Coaching||
I would be curious what Coach Hoke saw in his 4 days on the job that would warrant a move like this. Hoke has never seen him in practice or coached him in a game yet he feels confident to move him back to the D-line. What did he see that the old coaching staff didn't. If we knew that motivation it would tell us alot about both coaches. Hope it works out
|4 years 45 weeks ago||you'll sh!t bricks when you see it.||
I would +1 you if I could for your clever fix
|4 years 45 weeks ago||not very chill, brah If||
If Fred Jackson negbanged this, you would cease to exist (possibly your parents too)

This is my favorite usc cheerleader pic
|4 years 45 weeks ago||grain of salt 2||
Anybody remember the stories of clandestine paper shredding from the last school we poached from. So how long before we have more stories filtering in from the West coast. OMG Hoke left me hanging, OH teh noes Brady left the toilet seat up, we are so upset.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Mike Cox||
If only we had a Mike Hunt on this team we would be epic.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||Suprise!||
By game three (Eastern Michigan) There should be enough tape that we suprise no one after that. The only suprise advantage will be with Notre Dame. We will need that advantage because Kelly found his Qback and should have the team humming when we meet.
|4 years 45 weeks ago||SRSLY?||
Considering our defense was terrible, why would you want any of them back. Make the clean break and find a d coordinator who can restore some fire. I for one look forward to more stuff like this
And less of this

Is Ron English ready to come back?

|4 years 45 weeks ago||Loss of Touchdown||
Celebratory antics will cost you big time. You can lose the game if you celebrate the touchdown before crossing the goaline. Ask Kansas State how they feel? So handing the ball to the official will most assuredly be part of the training.
