"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."

|10 hours 21 min ago||We were 4-1 this year in road games...||
...yet it's hard to see us winning a road game?
|13 hours 53 min ago||Anyone feels bad today||
Just think...where would we be today with Hoke? And spare me the "at least Hoke played OSU close" shit. Hoke still was 1-3 against them. And I guarantee that not only does he lose today, but this team under Hoke would be lucky to be bowl eligible. 7-5 at best. This team would be Penn State.
|14 hours 8 min ago||This is a 9-3 team.||
This is a 9-3 team that got insanely unlucky in one game and fairly lucky in two other games. They are what their record says they are. If you call Minnesota s should-have-lost, then you have to call MSU a should-have-won. And then at worst we're one 4th down play away from 8-4 against Indiana.
|14 hours 22 min ago||Those are two plays over the whole year||
And the first one doesn't even matter if your punter just fricking catches the damn ball.
|14 hours 33 min ago||Not too shabby||
Two things killed them: (1) the utter lack of a run game (a perfect combo of poor blocking and terrible RB vision), (2) not converting TDs in the redzone twice. If those are both TDs, we're tied at halftime and actually stay in the game despite the defense's ineptness (would have been 28-21 rather than 28-13).
|14 hours 44 min ago||Everyone worried about losing the LBs...||
Quite frankly the LB Corp needs turnover. Too slow and unathletic...glaring weakness against teams like OSU and IU, exposed because of the injuries to DL.
|14 hours 53 min ago||I don't get the Baxter hate, quite frankly||
This is the best STs we've had since...I have no idea...and you want to fire the guy? Talk about a hot take.
|15 hours 20 min ago||The fucking MSU game||
Good god man.
|15 hours 24 min ago||In case you hadn't noticed...||
We have a coach in his first year, with a QB who had only been on the team since a few months ago, and coming off a 5-7 year.
|15 hours 27 min ago||Lol||
Come on refs. Seriously, just let it go.
|15 hours 29 min ago||Let me clarify||
It shouldn't be. Lewis should be entitled to his space. It's not his fault the ball was thrown so far from the receiver that he had to attempt to catch it through Lewis. It's the shit PI that Brian always talks about. The only "interfering" Lewis did was standing in the way of Thomas...and I mean, come on.
|15 hours 33 min ago||Haha flag||
That's not PI. Whatever.
|15 hours 44 min ago||I'm going to say it now||
Today was an utter fucking failure by the coaches. I mean, I'll eventually be ok with 9-3, but right now I'm fuming at how terrible the coaching has been today.
|15 hours 52 min ago||Just a train wreck on defense||
What the fuck, man. Atrocious.
|17 hours 15 min ago||Wasn't offsides||
We all know OSU doesn't ever commit penalties. Duh.
|17 hours 21 min ago||Oh totally||
Only Michigan holds.
|3 days 17 hours ago||It's not a late hit||
If the QB isn't even down yet all the way. It was a bang bang play too.
|3 days 17 hours ago||On these hits it's hard to say||
When a QB is going down already and the defender is in motion for the hit, it's hard to assess whether his intent was to hit his head or not (and in most cases I would say it wasn't). But it's a grey area for sure...you have to also look at how much time before the defender hits him (I.e. Did he have an opportunity to let up?)
|4 days 18 hours ago||I like Spielman||
For every other game but this one.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Incredibly sad.||
It's incomprehensible to imagine being a parent and losing a child to fucking cancer at the age of 5. One of the cruelest things on this earth is childhood cancer. Fuck cancer.
Cannot say that enough. Fuck. Cancer.
RIP, Chad. Condolences to the Carr family.
|5 days 18 hours ago||My take||
The good fortune of Minnesota wiped away the bad fortune of MSU.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Do not want.||
Yes I got that it was sarcasm.
|1 week 9 hours ago||Lol||
Wow that's....that's something.
|1 week 12 hours ago||And it's not a luck thing that they're at 9-2||
The close calls/lucky good (Minnesota, Indiana) and bad (MSU) are basically a wash this year. Michigan has earned all of its wins, and are basically where they should be record-wise based on their play. It's amazing to me that we went from a 5-7 year, losing Funchess and Gardner, to a 9-2 year with at least two chances to get to 10 (or more!) wins.
|1 week 13 hours ago||I'm willing to allow it...||
...if they're consistent in calling holds like that all game on both sides. They were not. Therefore that call looks far worse that it probably is in isolation. Which is even more galling given its rarity. They call THAT but obvious OL holds are completely ignored all game long? I mean...cumong man.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Given||
Their propensity to NEVER call holding on the OL...yeah, I call bullshit on the Henry holding. Even if it could technically be called...holy hell I saw at least a handful of obvious holds by PSU guys and...nothing.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Yeah...||
That was borderline. Got away with one.
|1 week 15 hours ago||WHERES THE FLAG REFS??||
Something good happened! Surely it was illegal!
|1 week 15 hours ago||These refs.,.||
I'm seething with rage, man.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Eh||
When more than half of your first downs come on penalty, the refs surely have something to do with it. But I get what you're saying...missing too many chances to put them away.
