"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."

And I did have the opportunity to attend and graduate from this great university.

Last game as student was 1981 Rose Bowl - Bo's first Rose Bowl Championship vs. Washington. It was pretty sweet.

My advice to you - start drinking heavily...again
|5 years 43 weeks ago||Out of control||
on offense - especially on the break. Looking to make the low percentage pass in traffic all to often. And don't get me started on the missed layups! I agree, the defense has improved but still need to work on blocking out to cut down on offensive rebounds. Shooting percentage still a mystery. Never seen so many bricked shots.

Ah yes, UNCC and Cornbread Maxwell - damn!

Slappie - how about Johnny Robinson (Johnny Rob)? That was a great team and really fun to watch. Besides the NC game vs. undefeated Hoosiers they came within a last second tip-in by Kent Benson of beating Indiana in Bloomington earlier that year. I also remember being behind visitors benches when we beat Magic/Heathcote/MSU and Isaiah/Knight/Indiana a few years later. Incredible memories and more will be made sooner rather than later. I'm probably way off, but this years team could still go off on an unbelievable run (Big Ten Tourney?) if they start putting the ball in the hole. They're obviously talented enough and can hang with the best teams.

Weather be damned - MGoTailgate! Education is over-rated. Will take kids out of school to make the trek.

Brian, I really enjoy reading your site when time permits. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't there an unwritten rule for this site that commenters shouldn't veer into the political arena? My two cents and that will be all is that maybe if some would actually listen to Rush instead of taking the words of Olbermann, Huffington Post, Media Matters, et al as gospel then a more honest assessment can be made. I know how much flak I will get here but so be it. Still love the site though and look forward to more Michigan football insight and conversation.

Couldn't agree more UMMAN83 - I've long lamented that the weather is used against Michigan in football recruiting. Most years we play games in beautiful weather, even scorching hot the first couple games. I've seen games in late October or early November at Michigan Stadium with gorgeous fall weather while the southeast is getting pummeled by remnants of a hurricane. Hard to turn the tide once "prevailing wisdom" sets in.

Thanks fa. When our defense is fully loaded, GERG will be a perfect description of our opponents offensive ineptitude.

WMU was a huge relief with all of the "drama" leading up to the game and not knowing what to expect. Now we're back to X's and O's but, believe me, the heart is racing with anticipation for the matchup with ND and Michigan Stadium will be jacked!
