"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."

I'm pretty sure this is just a fairly standard format for roundup-style blog posts. You could also accuse EDSBS's Curious Index of "stealing" the same format. Given that Brian is buddies with Matt Hinton & Spencer Hall, I don't think any perceived plagiarism is an issue.

From the David Brandon interview on this week's show, it sounds like there will be a fairly extensive pre-game dedication ceremony. He mentioned a special marching band show and plenty of "goosebump" moments. My guess is 2:30 start, but I'll be on the lookout for firm details.

I'll be disappointed if TWIS doesn't reappear somewhere. Hopefully Brian's got something lined up for his general college football musings.

He was actually pretty badass. Started out his speech by calling out a student who wrote a disapproving letter to the editor:
“(Paterno) expressed considerable doubt about my suitability as a public speaker, along with the concern that my distinctly minor-league status would bring down the whole tone of this glorious occasion,” Davis said in his speech.
Some great stories after that, too.

I was happy to see Mike get a few plays in a playoff game. I've been checking in on the Colts depth chart every once in a while to see how he's doing, and he's listed behind Chad Simpson as the 4th string RB. I don't think Simpson saw the field last night, so Mike's #3.
My master plan would be for the Colts to let Addai walk (not unreasonable), and Donald Brown would slide into the starting spot. That would put Mikey as the #2 back, one injury away from starting. A guy can dream, right?

Clearly he's working his way back towards the midwest. Next year: Kansas. 2011: Illinois (taking Ron Zook's vacated position). 2012: Michigan.
