"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."

For the record, his Father wasn't Jewish and his Mother while born Jewish was more into ashrams. (I know you were being facetious.

Anyone know why they chose Liev Schreiber to do the narration? No connection to either team or the B1G or even football?

in any event, it will be moot by the time Penn State beats them next Saturday.

@ThePlayoffGuru has been nailing it pretty consistently so far in 2015. He's got it:
Clemson, Alabama, Iowa, ND, MSU, Oklahoma, Baylor, Ohio State, Ok State, Florida.
Personally, I've got a hunch the last two may drop down.

If memory serves, in four years under Hoke, Michigan won five B1G road games and I believe three were in Evanston. If that's correct, then under Harbaugh Michigan has already beaten as many different B1G teams on the road as they did under Hoke.

The Four Seasons is in Wailea -- I just stayed there. (OT: so did Jose Reyes!). I suspect you were thinking of the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua. FWIW, Kapalua is great for golf, but it's a little cloudier and wetter than Wailea or Lahaina/Kaanapali.

I think we want Utah to win for awhile longer. The better they do, the better Michigan's resume is. Of course, at some point, they will need to lose a game, but if it were to happen in the Pac-12 championship that would be better than now.

Three Michigan QBs in the College Football HOF: Benny Friedman, Harry Newman, and Pete Elliott.

I totally agree. Friedman is in the College HOF and would have won at least one and maybe two Heisman's if they were giving them out when he played. Check out: Passing Game - Benny Friedman and the Transformation of Football by Murray Greenberg.

I actually hope to be moving to Hawaii by the middle of 2017. Sounds like perfect timing!

I haven't seen it posted on any of the baseball threads, but Terry Collns is from Midland and played for Eastern.

It's the regular MLB Network broadcast team and they're 100x better than Buck, Reynolds and Verducci. Can someone pull the Fox plug again?

Absolute letdown? As a true freshman, he rushed 118 times for 486 yards. That's 4.1 yards per carry on an awful team. And, he caught 19 passes for 175 yards. The only letdown was he got homesick -- and had some injuries. He was good enough to get a taste of the CFL as a wide receiver.

I like Nebraska over Sparty in Lincoln. If that happens, OSU beats them too, and Michigan runs the table going into The Game, then The winner of The Game would go ton Indy. I don't consider that scenario to be far fetched.

Interesting that you mention Hagerup. I seem to recall a dropped snap against a rival. He was forgiven; O'Neill already has.

I'm in Hawaii. I watched the first half and last 10 minutes in my room. I watched the rest of the game on my iPAD in various locales. When the game ended, I like everyone else on this Blog was in shock, but I had agreed to go to lunch. I sit down at my table and with my wife and a friend commiserating, I look up and directly in my eyesight at the table next to us is a guy in a Sparty T-shirt. It took a lot not to start screaming at him.

With all due respect, I suspect Utah is the better than MSU, so even after next week, Utah will be the best team we've played.

I'm hearing that ESPN has stopped running Draft Kings commercials at least for the time being.

My biggest concern about Northwestern: the last three have essentially come down to the last play. 2012: Gardner throws the Hail Mary that Roundtree some how winds up catching; 2013: Dileo slides to place the ball for a Gibbons field goal; 2014: failed two point attempt. My worry is that the football gods may be ready to even things out. Hopefully Harbaugh and staff will have the team well ahead by the fourth quarter this year.

From Kensington/Chevy Chase. Current plan is to get on at Connecticut and get off at University Boulevard. Looks from my campus maps that University Boulevard goes right into Campus Drive and my parking spot is in a lot near the Business and Architecture schools -- essentially only a couple of blocks into the campus and a few blocks south of Byrd.

1 pm update has weather.com, accuweather.com, and wunderground.com all showing no rain from noon to three. All three, however, show rain before and after, particularly in the evening. Capital Weather Gang, which is the only one clearly focused on DC area weather, is still indicating a chance of occasional showers during the noon to three period.

Anyone have a sense as to how bad the traffic is coming into the campus on game day? With no traffic, I've got a 22 minute ride to my parking lot three blocks south of Byrd. My plan is to leave around 10:30, figuring that even if it takes an hour, I've still got 30 minutes to get to the stadium. Am I missing something? (P.S., while I've lived in Maryland for almost 40 years, this will be my second trip to College Park; the first was 10 days ago, when I drove over to pick up my tickets.)

Also you can subscribe to the SiriusXM for the internet and the game is being broadcast there. Not sure what Sirius channel will be carrying it, but it's on XM204.
