"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."

He was 3-0 by my count.
|3 days 20 hours ago||The Jerk Store has always done a big business in athletics||
Buckeye on the other end...unspeakable act 1.0 takes place at 0:20, and 2.0 comes about 10 seconds later:
|3 days 21 hours ago||The hockey entrance age section is hard to grok.||
Reading between the lines, the power programs have talented 18-22 year olds and they don't want them playing against the 25-year-olds that lower-profile programs are using in order to be competitive?
|4 days 18 hours ago||Punishment other than taking abuse from his own fans||
on social media?
I didn't really expect Meyer to suspend him. Meyer's performance is measured in wins, and Elliott playing should help his team win. Next issue.

Darned image won't embed. How am I going to contribute to the next posbang?

Oompa loompa doopity do.
|4 days 23 hours ago||I was going to say "yes, apparently he can't STFU"||
but you worded things so much more professionally. Well done.

Also, Braxton Miller, JT Barrett, Ezekiel Elliott, Joey Bosa, Darron Lee, and Cardale Jones all suffer season-ending pregnancies.

I took Biology 102: Practical Botany in the Winter 1994 term. Estabrook burst into song during one lecture, singing part of Lehrer's "Pollution." Did not know until I just looked him up that he passed away four years ago. A very interesting man. I still have a plant from that class, though it could use re-potting.
When Manningham was on, he was really f-ing on. I remember him torching Wisconsin in 2006.

I wasn't at the game but mgoblue.com says she was scheduled to perform tonight. She took some time off from performing and I was bummed that it might be permanent. Her act is always the same, by which I mean it is always awesome. So glad to hear that she is back performing.

I remembered his comment about yawning. Tremendous.

Unless you were born in 96, in which case oy.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Lots to like on his junior hudl highlights||
Lots of changing direction, weaving his way through the defense, then turning on the jets for long scores. But when he gets good blocking up front, he's at high speed earlier and reaches the endzone 10 yards ahead of pursuers. Usual caveats about not knowing the level of competition, yak yak yak.
Seems similar to Chris Evans and Kiante Enis. How many ~6'0" 185 running back/athletes do we have room for in this class?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Cleveland State||
For selfish reasons, of course. I attended the Fab Five's second game, which was a road game at Cleveland State and the dedication game for CSU's then-new Convocation Center. It was full that night. I don't believe they've filled it for a CSU game since. The crowd had plenty of maize and blue. Lots of UM alumni and fans here in Cleveland, and it would be an easy road trip for anyone from Toledo/SE Michigan.
CSU's RPI was 128 at the end of last year. As long as Gary Waters is the coach they should be decent, he's had only two bad years in nine, one of which was his first year.
Three Detroiters and one Farmington Hills resident are on their roster this year.
As a Horizon League team they are scheduling up by playing five MAC teams (one neutral site, one road, three home). They're also playing Maryland in a tournament on Thanksgiving weekend and a road game at Rhode Island. They are playing their "big" home games at the Cavs' arena as of this year, five such games scheduled this year, the rest at their on-campus arena.
This is the basketball version of my drumbeating for a football road game at Pittsburgh (closer to my house than Ann Arbor is).
|2 weeks 2 days ago||His running touchdown against Hawaii was great||
Totally should have been caught in the backfield by the Hawaii linebacker/DE, instead he accelerated away from him and ran untouched down the left sideline for a ~40-yard TD.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||This offends me||
I loathe OSU, and I'll smite anyone who says otherwise. Don't lump me in with them.

"Whitlock" would have worked with this pic also.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||Crean is as crazy as Jim but not as good of a coach||
He's a poor man's Calipari...recruit talent and let it rip. He gets a lot of credit for Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo. In the five combined years those guys played for him, his teams were 121-49 (55-31 conf), .712 and .640 respectively
In the years without them, his teams were 348-186 (87-117), .532 and .426 respectively.
NCAA tournament record with Wade and Oladipo: 6-4.
Without them: 0-4 in 11 seasons.

Trappist monk style.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Not cool bro||
It will always be too soon for that. And I was only 6 then.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||And you had to sleep on the wet spot||
Didn't realize Brian had tweeted that over the weekend. Bravo funky.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Bars was on crutches and wearing a big brace after the NW game||
So I wouldn't expect to see him in the game anytime soon.

|3 weeks 20 hours ago||Well, even 37 years later, Bo was an OT at 5'9" 170||
You would have been considered really tall in 1911.
Looking at old rosters, the guys were very close to being the same size. Almost everybody was between 5'8" and 6'1" and 170-190 lbs.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||It would be. However, Dungy turned 60 last month||
and hasn't coached for the past seven years.
That said, he would provide a terrific boost for Minnesota if they could get him.
