"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."

This is getting fun guise!
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Meyer's Discipline||
OSU under Meyer has been arguably more strict than UM under Hoke.

They look fired up. Too bad they shit the bed though
|1 year 4 weeks ago||RR was awful||
Rich Rod was fricking terrible here. It's getting annoying at this point. How many times can you people beat a dead horse?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||I remember as well||
I wore jeans and my maize t-shirt. I was freezing to death by the end of the game in the student section. My roommate and I weathered the storm and by the end we were hugging other students in the stands. This game and when Henne hit Manningham on the slant to beat PSU were two of the best experiences I've had at the big house.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Well||
|1 year 5 weeks ago||If we try to run through the middle||
If we consistently try to run through the teeth of the State defense, we're not going to score a TD. Reading what Hoke said and this doesn't give me the warm fuzzies about our game plan. Hopefully I'm wrong

|1 year 6 weeks ago||Good for everyone||
Glad to see this team win. Good to see Devin get the win and even Hoke. Did you see him at the end? Good for them!
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Really?||
Look at the offensive production in RR's last year. Terrible against any teams with a pulse.

If you don't like the way this place is run, then GTFO. Nobody will miss you.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Injury||
Again, how would Hoke have known Shane was concussed at this point? It's not really a relevant point, in my opinion.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Responsibility||
Hoke continuously takes responsibility for things that fail on this team. Now it doesn't seem he's fixing any of them, but I digress. Do you listen to his press conferences when they lose? He ALWAYS lays the blame on himself. So, maybe this one time it wasn't his fault. As much as everyone would like to armchair this one, a situation is always different when you're in it.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Benefit of the doubt||
I'm willing to give Hoke the benefit of the doubt on this one. Maybe in his mind Shane is trotting out there with an ankle injury to hand a ball off and there's no way he's getting touched (which is true).
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Evaluation||
If Shane had come out, isn't it the training staff's responsibility to do the proper tests? And if Hoke calls him back to the field for a play, should the training staff say NO if they haven't evaluated him?
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Relax||
You need to calm down son.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Following the Play||
Do you agree that it's entirely possible Hoke didn't see the head shot? The only reason we saw it on TV was the replay.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||RR and Concussions||
Brian, it's funny you put an RR quote about Denard and concussions as if he's better than Hoke. I urge you to go back and check out Arizona's games. It escapes me which game, but I distinctly remember an Arizon's QB taking head shots, then running to the sidelines to puke in front of RR. He sent him right back out there since they were driving down the field. A clear sign of concussion was overlooked there, but you didn't see anybody talking about that one.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Hindsight||
It's amazing how many people were calling for Morris to play and now since Brian says Gardner should have started, everyone agrees. What had Gardner shown this season that suggests he should NOT have been benched for a game to give Morris a shot? Of course, Shane was ultimately not ready, but to continue playing someone who clearly is rattled and not getting it done is insanity.

Hope you enjoy it
|1 year 9 weeks ago||Huh?||
I was just talking with my pops yesterday and we both agreed that Peppers looks very good so far and is possibly the best corner we have.
What is the reasoning that people would say he's no good?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||How much||
How much would you pay to see Mattison wrestle Hoke?
|1 year 9 weeks ago||S&C||
I think S&C plays a very small role in what product we're seeing on the field
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Crutches = Cover Up||
Didn't you hear, the crutches were also part of the cover up!
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Points||
I keep losing all my mgopoints for negging you. Please stop.
|2 years 2 days ago||Bring back negs||
Please Brian, bring back negs for people like this.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Wondering the Same||
However, I was impressed with the way the other youngster (RS Fr and True Fr) opened some run lanes and yes, PASS protected for Gardner. Don't care if it's IU...we couldn't keep UConn or Akron out, as others have noted.
