"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."

My partner's daughter is 6 and she's rockin a blue M baseball cap tomorrow when we go watch The Game. She's starting to get football. At the end of the State game she looked up at me and said "I don't think that play went very well, huh?" My partner's ex is not much of a football fan but hear tell that they are now watching games together (even the Lions game yesterday - Detroit impressed her to no end, don't know how to explain to her my psychotic disinterest in that team.) in any event, she's a big hit with Alumni Assn here.

Utterly disappointing. Lions were in such great shape for 1st pick of draft. Big surge w 7 losses just a new way to forge mediocrity.
|2 days 23 hours ago||It's good, tho a bit slanted towards OSU||
in my opinion. The 2006 game is described as "the most highly anticipated" in history and I suppose that raises the question of "anticipated by whom?" Of course the Buckeyes won that one. Could be that they hyped that one simply because the thing was produced in 2007. However, that game was no more highly anticipated (by me at least) than the 1997 game (Carr's name and the natty that team won are never mentioned), or the great battles of the early-mid 70s (when I was littler and found it impossible to sleep the night before.)
Nonetheless, highly recommended, with a lot of really funny moments in addition to the tearjerker parts @ Woody and Bo.

I'd bet the house this year. The Team is bloodthirsty.
PS - that is, if I were a betting man.

that we have Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson on the sidelines this Saturday...
(But why is this guy's visit date set for Friday? Hoping that it's a two day affair - how could he come the day after T-Day and then miss The Game?)

Lost my big sis in Ann Arbor this past summer after a year-long fight with an aggressive form of cancer. Really puts things in perspective. My thoughts are with the family.

What he's probably receiving is intensive psychatric care paid for by Urban Meyer, the OSU Athletic Dept, or both.

Can be found on Eleven Warriors: "Ease up on the meltdown... no reason to let Mgoblog have a laugh."
Only schadenfreude that will be sweeter is when we whip their asses next weekend.
|6 days 19 hours ago||That's correct, Mr. Yost||
And it's up to us to rise above our failures. The future looks quite bright, beginning with next week!

These keep coming out late. Maybe there's a new baby in the family and he's just overworked, but I have to wonder whether he just has a harder time writing about the Wolverines than has been the case the past few years that I've been reading.
He feels the need now to qualify everything that he says. That's a change from before. Additionally, he's just plain missing stuff. Had nothing to say about Sypniewski's sub-par performance, though he may have been helped with that a little had the news about him playing with a 103 degree fever come out a bit earlier.
The Buckeye fanbase is concerned. They know that, even under the previous coaching regime, these games have been competitive ever since Meyer took over there. One difference they have to be noticing is that this team manages to pull out games at the end. That's been Meyer's trademark at OSU and insofar that it has provided them the edge it may no longer be the factor that it was in recent years.

The Lions blew it. It's just that, lucky for them, the Packers blew it worse.

She had a blind date with Plaxico Burress. I think that all they did was try to calm one another's nerves.

organizers and grassroots/social justice organizations run into all the time MGoNola, sounds like you've had some experience with all this. Good points.

Do you think should happen? You sound dissatisfied with the President's resignation, so I ask.
