"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."

|47 weeks 3 days ago||Not trolling, just stating facts||
So it is indeed classy to call other people obscene names? I think not. If you have a problem with my statements, have at it. But you attacking me personally is classless.
Additionally, I'm not trolling Christianity - I'm merely stating facts. Tebow interwined his religion with football, which is why both subjects are relevant here. If you like Tebow, fine. I personally think he was a great college player and an awful NFL qb. But acting as though his consistent invocation of his faith and football are mutually exlcusive (or irrelevant to this discussion) is disingenous.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||"His Christian fan base"||
I said "his Christian fan base," not the entire Christian fan base. I think you're kidding yourself if you don't think Tebow's outspoken faith didn't play a pivotal role in the support he received as an NFL qb.

Class act you are. I'm merely pointing out the folly of commenting on someone's character when you don't know them. Relax.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Do you know him personally?||
Do you know him personally? How can you say he's a "good person" without actually knowing him? I think a lot of the vitriol towards Tebow stems from the irrational support he received as an NFL qb from his Christian fan base in spite of his horrible play.

6 games, really? Care to make a wager on that? With our talent and JH in the fold 8 wins should be the floor. As noted in a recent diary, our talent far exceeds all of our opponents (minus OSU).

In short, the public sector version of this will vary state by state. This may make it easier for some public school players to unionize than others depending on their location.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Private Sector vs. Public Sector||
It's important to note that because the University of Michigan is a public school, it is subject to the public sector labor laws of the state. These laws can be very different from those of the NLRA in the private sector. A state employment board (MERC in Michigan) would have to decide that athletes are employees based on the state laws (the PERA in Michigan). In Michigan, all the recent political animus towards public sector unions leads me to believe this would be a pretty tough sell.

Yes, only after the red and blue did it get stupid...

Those look awful.

Not sure if this was meant to be sarcastic, but it made me laugh.

That's a fair point.

He's also a very slow man. Garrett has been destroying him.

Didn't look like it. The corner over there got sucked out of his zone, looked too skinny to be Peppers

That would explain why he isn't in the group pic, thanks.

Gardner chose to honor Tom Harmon by wearing his #, he was not forced to. If Gardner wanted, he could have finished his career donning #12. As long as players can choose, I see nothing wrong with our teams honoring legends of the past. It's really the best of both worlds.

He's not a cyborg, he's a baby. He just overreacts to any sort of injury, making people think it's more serious than it actually is.

Oh come on, give the guy a "break."
