"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

Can someone remind me what Tom Crean did last year?

I like how you misspelled "a lot" and abbreviated random words like "people" but you threw in the word "vociferous."
But to your point, Jalen is the basketball equivalent to Braylon. So no.

Yes. It feels like he has been around since the Ellerbe era.

To beat a dead horse, it is interesting how expectations affect job status. Beilein had a losing record in his third year, and didn't really have that good of a team until his 5th year, and yet Rodriguez got axed after 3. I still wonder sometimes how things may have turned out if Rodriguez had gotten 5 years, and if his comparisons to Beilein would have remained valid.

That was Tate's problem. He didn't understand that part of his full ride did NOT include a doppelganger who attended class for you... unlike you know who.

What is "SR"? It has been so long since I saw that abbreviation I forgot what it means.

I will never forget how stunned I was about ten years ago when I created Michigan's roster and lo and behold, Brad Nessler could pronounce "Henne." As common as a name that was, I was always a little suspicious.

Dawson to LEFT tackle? QB CONTROVERSY!

Anyway with the change in defensive alignment, that should help to explain some of the odd linebacker positions in the recruiting class this year (Furbush/Winovich).

Kind of a cool story bro here, but my son was born literally 24 hours before UTL in 2011, and my wife still let me go to the game. It made the euphoria even more surreal having gotten zero sleep in the previous 36 or so hours once kickoff came around.

Yes. You make the phone call, you open your check book, and you say "Jim, give us a number." Of course you go after him. He is the surest thing in football right now. Even if he only gave you 3-4 years, his coaching tree alone would be enough to sustain your program solidly for at least a decade after he leaves.

Of course. They don't call it the Michigan State difference for a reason.

Cool on winning the gold. Now let's have a world wide American football tournament.

Sometimes people respond to the first comment when they are actually responding to the OP because they feel that their own opinion is so much more important than anyone else's that it should be seen at the top.

Ok... so Dave Brandon now works at StubHub too?

How about this as well:
A marginal improvement in the offensive line may still have resulted in wins vs PSU, Nebraska and Iowa. Yeah, it sucks to lose to our two biggest rivals but 10-2 has a much different feel than 7-5.
In other words, this could still translate to 9-10 wins next season, especially as the defense progresses naturally.

Gores may be a big State fan, but I'm sure he's an even bigger fan of his income.
