"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."

Gray shirts are fine as long as the staff is up front with the recruit from the beginning (a la Pallante). It is shady when a recruit is told all along he is in the class only to be "gray shirted" late in the process.

Seems to me that if the mudbowl was so important to them, and they saw themselves as caretakers of this amazing and important tradition, maybe they could have found a way to be better behaved and not, you know, get suspended and kicked off campus.

If you think that UM hired this woman to lure her son, who would be able to play ONE year and lost his starting CB job on the team he is currently playing for, then you are badly misreading the situation.
More likely, she is good at what she does (see her success with the Florida team she is currently with) and Durkin recommended the hire for that reason and to help with future FL recruiting.
Nothing wrong with that at all.

Seems a little ironic to blast MSU for an "inferiority complex, taking offense at everything no matter how innocuous" when you are doing exactly the same thing by taking offense at whatever Dantonio says.

I was going to go check out the FootBall Scoop blog but since you've been such a douchbag, I think I'll pass.

I canceled but did it weeks ago. That place has become a tire fire fueled at first by Tom Beaver's increasing paranoia and narcisism (I know... even for him) and now by a crazy sense that GBW is central to the coaching search somehow.
I need less crazy in my life, not more.

On the contrary, I didn't see any compelling argument for not boycotting. Their three "reasons" consist of: Don't hurt the players, support the players, and we are the leaders and best (so trust the AD).
Could someone explain to me how playing in front of 80,000 fans rather than 110,000 fans "hurts" the players? Aside from pride, etc. how is anyone hurt? Does anyone lose a scholarship or suffer any other harm, other than simply knowing that some fans chose not to go to the game?

Do you really think that firing Brandon right now would fix anything on the field??

Nope. No sting.... just acceptance of what I knew was coming at this point.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||If he believes he is the guy||
If he believes he is the guy to get it done (as you state) why would he voluntarily resign?
I get that everyone wants him gone (me included) but this notion that he should just resign is silly. Has anyone ever done that mid-seasons.... just say, "You know what? I suck and the fans deserve better so I'm gonna quit."
|1 year 7 weeks ago||It was interesting for me to||
It was interesting for me to watch yesterday, since I assumed they would lose and didn't have a whole lot of emotion about it. I was as close to a passive observer as I can be.
In that state it is simply clear as day to me that this is simply a poorly coached football team, in all phases. I don't know how else to put it.
Given that, I can't disagree with you more. This isn't about creating a culture. It is about a group of coaches who aren't very good at coaching.

So play that out. Revenue equals worth (a silly and narrow definition, and you know it, but OK). You must be the biggest Brandon supporter out there, then, right. I mean, he has greatly increased revenue.
That is rhetorical, of course. You don't like Brandon because you understand that the "worth" of something goes far beyond the dollars it brings in and even though he has increased revenue he has diminishd the "worth" of Michigan football.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||And the fact that you think||
And the fact that you think "worth" is defined entirely in terms of revenue (within an educational context like a university) tells me even more. I ran track at Michigan. Was my team worthless?

The fact that you think those sports are worthless tells me all I need to know about you.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Guys, it is irrelevant||
Guys, it is irrelevant whether or not he actually had a concussion. Irrelevant.
He COULD have had one, showed symptoms of having one, and needed to be evaluated fully before being allowed to return to the game. He wasn't. He stayed in and then was re-inserted after being out a few minutes. Full evaluations for concussions don't take 1-3 minutes and they can't be done while the player is on the field playing.
He shouldn't have ben in there and certainly should not have been put back in no matter what LATER evaluations say about a concussion.
