The "Ocho" shows Dodgeball on Saturdays, IIRC.

EMU is 5-2 while NIU is 1-6 ?

Between 1999, when Buffalo rejoined Div I, and 2006, the team did not win more than three games a year. In the three seasons before 2007, Buffalo's record was 2-9, 1-10, 2-10. Gill's squad won as many games in 2007 as they had in the preceding three seasons.
In 2008, they played in the first bowl game in program history.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Agree.||
Spack is also a Purdue alum.
|5 days 10 hours ago||True,||
but he only had three seasons; back then (1977-79) head coaches were usually given their full initial contract, typically four or five years. Prior to Moeller's arrival, Illinois was usually around .500 in won-lost record; they declined to 2-3 wins for the three years he was there.

at the close of his recruitment, Malik's statements to the media expressed the higher level of comfort he ejoyed with players and coaches in EL. Now those upperclassmen and the former Defensive Coordinator have moved on; it may be a different atmosphere there.
I wished he had come to play in Ann Arbor; but he made his choice and (like all of us) needs to live with the result of his choice. He has experienced a Rose Bowl win, and a CFP appearance; I think he'll be fine.
|1 week 3 days ago||Specific Area to avoid:||
Franklin County, Ohio.
It's okay to stay on the interstate if you drive about 10 mph over the speed limit but keep an eye out for snipers and escaped animals from private wildife parks (these last two apply to all of Ohio, not just Franklin County.)

A quick google search shows that Granite Falls and Archbishop Murphy are both in the Cascade Conference.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Gas Price?||
I remember a price war around Bloomfield Hills in 1970; regular was 18 cents a gallon.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||If I were a Rutgers fan,||
I'd ask Mom what time dinner will be ready; it's cold down here in the basement.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Noon EST||
is 9:00 AM here on the West coast. It's a perfectly good time to watch Michigan football.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||True,||
but when the Wolverines win, its great to watch victory highlights all day long and into the night.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||8 pm?||
The way USC and ND are playing there must be a more interesting game that day.
I'd rather see UCLA at Cal, or Utah at Colorado.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Well,||
that's why you're not the most interesting man in the world. And for the record, neither am I.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Is it okay to talk about BYU?||
BYU hasn't beaten MSU (or OSU) yet.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Rockford||
MeTV had the Rockford Files on for a while; I've got about a dozen on my dvr. The golden firebird, the trailer on the cove and, of course, the (then high tech) answering machine:
"This is Jim Rockford. Leave your name and number and I'll get back to you."

Lots of Leroy Hoard in that second half, as I recall! The Oline wore down SC's defense.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||1993, right?||
If you're under 25 you probably didn't see the chase live.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Jehu !!||
I would love to see #86 have a big game like he did against Florida.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Emotional predictor.||
Mine has been relatively calm. I feel like we're playing with house money, a year ahead of schedule. Our team has been playing with confidence and the defense has made great strides in learning DC Brown's scheme. This is a big test, coming at home, at the right time. Game on!
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||Bielema, d-bag.||
Didn't he send a scrub OL in to chop block Brandon Graham, who was having a big day against Wiscy? Arkansas has a winner in that guy.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||What about ...||
... four Safties and a FG? Unlikely.
Or 3 FG and a blocked wolverine extra point run back for two by the badgers?
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Well,||
PSU fans' creepy meters have not been functioning correctly for the last five years.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||"Evaluating all positions"||
Sounds like BK has been reading the kamasutra.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||East -West balance?||
If they came to Ann Arbor, the first five tailgates would be in the East.
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||And if Shane transfers to Wisconsin,||
and he's leading the Badger offense when UM plays in Madison on Nov 18, 2017, will you feel the same way?
I don't see him as a fit for Oregon; Wisky is the most likely destination, if Shane decides to go that route. I wish him the best, except against UM.

Are you referring to "Our culture is as healthy as it's been in a long time."
If so, I think you had it right the first time; "it's" is a correct contraction for "it has", whereas "its" is possesive.
But then, I'm an engineer, so my English usage leans toward the applied and away from the theoretical.

when the term "Linebacker U" was coined, they were in the conversation about the best in the country. In 1986, they went 12-0 and beat 11-0 Miami (YTM) in the Fiesta Bowl.
But their east coast regular season schedule was never as tough as the other national title contenders. For fun, check out the Lambert Trophy, given annually to the best FBS team in the East. Penn State has won it an impressive 29 times; the second most frequent winner, with 7 trophies is Army (YTA).
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Well,||
the article says he's made enemies during his time in Ann Arbor, it does not specify where those enemies are.
We know that many of them are in SEC territory and in other Big Ten football programs.
We also know he's made lots of new friends during his time in Ann Arbor, but the article is not about that. It about what a great coach James Franklin is and what a bright future he and Penn State share. I wouldn't want them to say anything different at this point.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Doh!||
Rutgers is a conference game.
