"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."

|22 weeks 4 days ago||If you want something low key||
If you want something low key and more relaxing, check out Boyne City and Young State Park. The State Park has a GREAT beach on Lake Charlevoix and is only 2 miles from town. Depending on when you are there, the downtown area generally has events all summer and there are some good restaurants (Red Mesa, Sante). Petoskey and Charlevoix are 10 mile east and west of there. Can't really beat the sunset from that eastern lakeshore of lake charlevoix.

My bad. Was told by admin it was from a new recruiting website. Haven't been to a game in 10 years :-(

|2 years 18 weeks ago||That was exactly my response||
That was exactly my response when I went to my first game as a high schooler. Walking from the west and seeing that small chunk sticking up I was very underwhelmed... When I got into the stadium and looked down I was blown away.
I absolutely love the additions to the stadium. I feel the suites opposite of the press box finishes things out nicely.

Simultaneous games happen all of the time... I think if High Schoolers can figure it out all summer long at camps and AAU, then college guys can figure it out too. I'm sure they would have bleachers between each court that would block a lot of sounds. I was excited for this to happen. Maybe next year

That was my take away too. If I were editting a highlight tape, I'd take out the missed forced jump shots that had a teammate wide open on the wing..

I also keep losing connection... I chalk it up to a crappy internet service at my office though
|3 years 17 weeks ago||No To Twitter, Yes to Kickstarter, Yes to IRC||
As a very active twitter user, I have seen many events attempt to do something like this and fail miserably. As others have mentioned, twitter feeds and get clogged up with trolls and spam very quickly. I think something like this would be way harder for moderators to successfully control and still be able to enjoy themselves watching the game.
I would support a kickstarter campaign for the CIL. My second vote would be to figure out a way to embed an IRC channel. I've seen that used successfully for many live events and people didn't have a clue they were using IRC and didn't even know what IRC was

Per Mike Farrell at Rivals, Derrick Green has always texted back "no" when asked if he was going to commit on any visit he's been on. Tonight? "idk". The anticipation builds for tomorrow

Seriously, this guy is amazing. His first stand alone book is Elantris, then he wrote the Mistborn Trilogy, Warbreaker is good and the first book of his Stormlight Archieve is appropriately EPIC.
And on top of all of that, he is finishing the late Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series

"we could see a fair share of helmets deposited in to ribcages in the backfield."
This would make me very happy! Please moar facemask in ribcage! I don't even care if the QB still has the ball. Hit 'em hard and hit 'em often!

Killer was my favorite part of that Trio. When the show went from Sean & Terp to Sean, Terp & Killer, the quality of the show increased in a major way. I was blown away when I got the email this morning... RIP Killer

Thats kind of what I was hoping someone would do. I tried to sort through some of it for some good quotes but I'm too tired after a long week. I was just amazed at some of the banter back and forth

You beat me to it... My heart sank when I saw the 'Cris-Cross' Block M...
I hope the stripes are atleast not there as in the original image at the top...
|4 years 42 weeks ago||Injured Playing...||
I destroyed my ankle in a game playing D-III JV Hoops. The school's insurance covered everything that my parent's did not... Total cost was upwards of $20,000 for everything and my parents did not have to pay a dime out of pocket. I'd imagine a large D-I school would be similar

I too went from Adrian College to Michigan... although I went straight into the Architecture program. I made sure to track the program's pre-rec classes as close as I could at Adrian and transfered in Fall of my Junior year
