"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."

|1 week 2 days ago||He was bobbling the ball||
while he was taking those steps in bounds, unforunately. It's hard to see with that compression but the ball was spinning/sliding around in his hand as the defender is pushing him.
|1 week 2 days ago||Nah||
I'm actually right, and I explained why. You just can't be bothered.
|1 week 2 days ago||fine.||
bobbled it twice, never had possession til out of bounds.
|1 week 2 days ago||Disagreeing with the group, but||
That was not a catch, because he actually bobbles it twice.
It's hard to see on that video, but on the TV replays you could see when he's taking his first several steps, the ball is moving in his stomach. No possession yet, so these first 3 steps he takes well in bounds are irrelevant.
He finally gains control as he's going down and does still have a foot down, but he hits the ground immediately after and completely bobbles the ball out of bounds. At that point, he would need to maintain control to complete the process like any other sideline catch.
|1 week 2 days ago||Who cares if it's okay?||
It's hilarious and all true. Horrible job by the coaches, bad move by the player.
There's no need to defend anyone here.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||So what if he gets hurt?||
It's 1 scholarship for 1 year.
I'm not at all comfortable with a depth chart of 1. O'Korn and 2. True/RS Freshmen/Borges recruits.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yes,||
that's against the spread. For outright wins they call in the 80-89% win range, they are 65-11 (85%).
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Awesome!||
I remembered these posts in years past and made sure to read this one to get caught up, as I haven't had time to follow the race at all yet. Glad to see Froome isn't necessarily going run away with it, and nice to see Teejay off to a good start!
|22 weeks 4 days ago||From Harbaugh's perspective......||
Michigan is still at the scholarship limit. Pipkins can decide not sign da ting and not transfer and it's still all good with the rules. And, if the coaches aren't going to play him there's no reason not to sign the medical, as someone else gets a paid scholarship.
HOWEVER, one really has to wonder how much the determination that this guy won't play has to do with wanting another player more. Maybe part of the reason they want Pipkins to retire is because they also want Jhonny Williams, for example.
I'm sure it's a bit of both, and knowing Harbaugh I think it's about winning as much as letting Pipkins evaluate his own situation.

your logic is infallible.

|29 weeks 17 hours ago||eh...||
i doubt there's any rhyme or reason as to what makes the front page lead story, besides the obvious--what people have been clicking on and website algorithms.
I'm pretty sure there's no actual human that decides this.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Technically...||
I'm sure Urbz "knew."
He "knew" that once he wanted to replace him with someone better, that he would make sure he didn't get cleared.
Nevered bothered to tell the kid he "knew" this, but Urbz "knew." We all knew, really.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||If you ever travel back in||
If you ever travel back in time, don't step on anything. Because even the slightest change can alter the future in ways you can't imagine
|33 weeks 6 days ago||If there's concerns||
A medical redshirt seems relevant. Rehab and re-evaluate.
It just seems weird that a meniscus injury would defnitively end his sports playing days at such a young age.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||I think it's pretty fine as is.||
The luxury tax is doing enough to keep the Yankees from going totally bonkers. A salary floor would actually be more useful.
I like the current playoff format as well. If you win the division, you get to avoid the 1 game play-in. Makes the long season more meaningful.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||It's a different sport||
It's not as action packed as your more intense sports, nor does it require the concentration level. It's great to have on while you do other stuff in the house or maybe listen to while you start a bonfire or golf or fish or work.
It fits with the idea of the lazy summer.
|34 weeks 1 day ago||Can confirm.||
I lived in SD, we can't all live there. If you can afford to choose where you work, it's beautiful.
Nothing beats the Michigan fall tho. All 2 weeks of it.
|35 weeks 4 days ago||The weather....||
if you REALLY like cold and snow then Grand Rapids could work for you. If you don't really have an opinion one way or another, it'll be great for a few years, but it'll eventually wear on you. If you don't like cold, don't bother.
Other than that, GR and the surrounding area is not exotic but very functional. With just a bit of effort/energy, you can find something that suits you, be it schools, mildly urban->super-rural, outdoor hobbies, etc.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||If anything,||
we should treat him better. Paying his own way, picking UM over preferred walk-on offers from Harvard and Yale.
Plus, from a roster building perspective, there's no downside. He's not taking up a precious scholarship.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||To be fair....||
80% of those playoff games were in 2 seasons: rookie year and a year where he only played 20 regular season games.
At any rate, he's a guy that's fits a need on the 2nd or 3rd line. He's not necessarily a difference maker.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe because Falcon is coming off ACL?|
|42 weeks 2 hours ago||If there's no attrition||
Kerridge and Glasgow are both 5th year senior walk-ons. So probably one of those 2.
|42 weeks 22 hours ago||ur right||
being wrong and ill-informed doesn't require a psychology degree.
|42 weeks 23 hours ago||HEY EVERYBODY STOP DISCUSSING||
HEY EVERYBODY STOP DISCUSSING SOMETHING I DON'T FIND INTERESTING
|42 weeks 23 hours ago||fuck yeah||
i want him back.
but i'm not an armchair psychologist.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||UM fans have assholes. MSU||
UM fans have assholes.
MSU fans have assholes.
OSU fans have assholes.
The internet is an asshole.
Don't be an asshole.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||I would bet they do||
The internet is an asshole.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||YES||
Since these two ideas are not mutually exclusive, I'm sure she does.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||Yep.||
You can do what you want.
It is an incredibly stupid and incredibly dickish thing to do, but you can do it if you want to be a stuipid dick.
