"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 year 39 weeks ago||Shared Title||
Do we officially share the B10 title if we finished tied with only MSU or does the sweep break the tie?
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Agreed||
Reshp1, my question is how much of the decision to go super conservative at the start and end was from Borges and how much from Hoke. It seems to me Borges's preferred approach is still bombs away (to his dettrement sometimes, like with Denard in trash tornado) and when the game situation neccesitated he open in up, he did to good effect. But this was a Carr era scoring offense v. non scoring offense thing and does Borges decide that or does Hoke?

If yes than that is my word, if not superexcitednervous will have to do.

Manny's three point play at the end of the Clemson game in the '09 tournament.

VCUs loss to Missouri bodes well. They are a very guard oriented team that is too say the least defensively challenged. Basically a worse version of us.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Antonio Poole||
Antonio Poole was/is the rumored injury player - this, to me at least, seems more like he wasn't going to get playing time here so is going to move on to somewhere where he will, type situation. Best of luck to him.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Last Year||
A lot of the same people on the same court last year and we played pretty well, lost a close one and outperformed the Kenpom score by a good margin, that bit of history seems way more relevant than the fact the Fab Five always lost in Bloomington

Waive off the waiting period. This thread should be in mgo hall of fame immediately.
It makes me feel way less creepy that so many people flipped out with excitement over the decision of a not yet high school junior. Greatful for that

Oh Comely seems perfect for this.

let me say everything the Wilpons are involved with turns to shit eventually. As far as I'm concerned M baseball is ahead of the game.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Amedeo Della Valle||
Not that it matters much, with the good news already in our pockets, but same source says Della Valle is a pretty strong bet to end up at Ohio.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||More Good Burke News||
I have a friend who is an nba/international scout. One of his friends is an agent who is friendly with Benji Burke and the word is an announcement, possibly as early as tomorrow, will announce Trey will be back. I trust this - but move your bayesian estimates as you wish.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||+1 to you||
Was just going to say this has to be the first presser all spring without a Campbell question. Like spring weight gains/losses I say no question is a good sign!
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Best of luck to him||
And feels a bit wrong to move on so quickly but does this bump us to 23 spots available or is this counted as part of the normal attrition?
|3 years 46 weeks ago||TE||
Depending on exactly what Borges wants to do when we are full on pro-style and also depending on what Sam Grant decides in the next month, our need at TE will will either be severe or simply strong and I bet we take two.

boo Strauss, but I very much enjoyed the estoric message in this post.

|3 years 51 weeks ago||One other Positive Khoury Tibit From UFR Iowa 2010||
"Losing Molk was a chunk of that. While Khoury didn't seem out of place he's the backup for a reason and his lack of experience contributed to a couple of screwups; the occasional iffy snap that threw timing off was not included in the numbers. I don't think I saw him get a tough seal like this all day:
(No need to embed, easy enough to picture awesome Molk reach block)
Even so a redshirt sophomore backup notching a positive number against Iowa's veteran, deep line is encouraging."
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Khoury - UFR Iowa 2010||
Backs up that assesment of Khoury. By the start of next season he will have almost two additional years since then to imporve. He can't replace Molk; no one can, but he will be solid and if someone beats him out for the spot, they will presumably have to be better than solid .
Its a big if, but even with Molk gone I think the line will be very good, IF they stay healthy.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Curious||
What are folks opinions about who between Strobel, Wormley and Godin is most likely to jump to the front of the line to get lots of playing time at the 5-tech next year? (potentially even starting if one of Black/Roh doesn't get moved to the other side)
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Magnuson||
There was some talk that he was going to enroll early a while back but the coaches supposedly told him he was redshirting either way so he decided against it. I agree witht he concern about OL depth next year, but obviously the coaches dont think early enrollee freshman OLs are the answer
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Northwestern game 1999||
Was northwestern really favored in that game? If I remember right it was at the big house and we were ranked and they weren't. We killed them too.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Color Me Skeptical||
I couldn't be more excited about the prospect of McGary coming here, even making it this far into his recruitment is a great sign for Beilen and the program. But this is playing out eerily like the recruitment of Casey Prather a few years back : http://mgoblog.com/content/casey-prather-coming-wing-near-you
I won't be convinced until he signs on the line that is dotted.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||One and Done||
I think there is a chance he will stay beyond one season if he comes. He is currently 19 and therefore eligible for the NBA draft next year out of high school and still is firmly commited to attending college for at least a year, so clearly there are concerns beyond jumping to the NBA as soon as possible. FWIW when judged with all players eligible for the next year's NBA draft he checks in just outside the first round.
