"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."

|5 years 3 weeks ago||This as our D's best performance to date||
There were breakdowns..sure, but they actually tackled and had 3 and outs.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||I think injuries have held Denard back more than anything||
Just imagine his numbers if he doesn't go out against BG, and plays out the full game against ILL, and that isn't even adjusting for the fact that at least a couple of his INT's are totally attributable to his bum shoulder.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||The QB chucked the football at the last moment||
I was pissed about losing the sack, delirious about the win and impressed with the Frosh's presence of mind all at the same time.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||That tackle by Avery on 3rd down right at the||
1st down marker was unreal. I literally haven't seen a Michigan defenseman make a "You ain't going no further son" tackle like that for a looong time.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||I am not so sure they let Stew go||
He still does have a darn good winning percentage and is mathematically in the race for a Big East title.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||How would that be political?||
Fox claims to be a "un-biased" source of news.
They would just happen to really like Shirwell's "Family Values".
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Then you clearly haven't read his||
supposed conversation with Bill martin after the 2008 season. That was hilarious.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Technically Woolfolk would also be a||
returning starter since he was one when he got injured.
btw, Magnus, wanted your take on the Demens hype and the Woolfolk hype.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||What they fail to mention or understand is that||
DC's will gladly have Denard launching air missiles all day than hav him galloping all over them.
Until he has a B10 game where he burns the secondary to a crisp, this meme will not die.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Suggestion for alternate model.||
Take the number of yards predicted for the offense and use the yards/point of the defense and THEN predict the outcome of the game.
(Hope this is clear, I can clarify if you need).
Defenses that create a lot of turnovers will be better modeled with this predictive scheme. This will also account for bend-but-dont-break defenses that give up lots of yards but not too many points. NOTE: Jokes about our "bend-over" defense will not be appreciated.
Your prediction is actually (loosely put) using two random variables without a joint probability term right now.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||I am breaking out the ol Simmons||
"I am afraid to say anything"
|5 years 4 weeks ago||If I were you, I would check if the offer is||
still open. If he is a big fan he might have already lost it already with all the bad luck they have had.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Completely legit on an official visit||
Pearl hosted a barbecue party at his home for players not on an official (maybe even during a non-recruiting period, I am not sure).
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Harbaugh knows very well what is||
involved with an NFL HC job ( I've seen him on the Ravens sidelines a couple of times). I am not at all convinced he would give up the perks of a college job for the NFL. If anything, he will jump for a big payday in college FB (LSU maybe?) .
|5 years 5 weeks ago||Wow, the TW reference really hit home.||
Brian regularly makes fun of the blame ND fans put on TW's recruiting but fails to realize he is doing exactly the same.
|5 years 5 weeks ago||To be fair they weren't "beasts" under RR||
either. They were barely serviceable.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Yeah, that was funny.||
Also you can't hit stop on the timer as soon as you see the screen in Windows because it only *starts* all the startup applications then. It still needs to start connecting to Wifi and start the AV software at a minimum.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Why doesn't Tiger Woods||
win every single tournament he plays in? That i one of the dumbest questions I have ever seen around here.
I know people get shocked when favorites lose but one play, that takes a special kind of crazy to ask why they couldn't guarantee that they would get it.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||One of the interceptions was clearly a miscommunication between||
him and wayne (read based on safety blitz). I would hardly call that a "terrible" throw.
|6 years 2 weeks ago||What's your point?||
What's your point?
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Not begrudging at all I think.||
Just curiosity I guess. Simmons always keeps track of his "predictions" and mentions it at the end of his picks column...fwiw
|6 years 3 weeks ago||GBMW consists of the same morons||
that claimed Omameh was tearing things up and was a lock for All-American. Why the hell are you reading them?
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Stating the obvious (this includes||
paraphrasing what Brian has been saying forever) is not contributing.
Also, asking a question and answering it yourself == LAME.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||It is remarkable how you manage||
to comment in every single one of the 1000 threads every day without ever contributing anything..not even by mistake.
|6 years 5 weeks ago||I think RR is doing an okay job (B-)||
but your statement is retarded. So if try my very best in an exam and still answer very little correctly I still deserve an A??
|6 years 6 weeks ago||RR is very internet savvy||
I bet his bulletin board just redirects to MgoBoard.
|6 years 7 weeks ago||I doubt if visiting||
Sparty fans will have the requisite points to actually neg anybody.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||This is awkward but I also wanted to apologize||
I've been reading this site for a few months now and just signed up for an account and got over-excited and posted a lot today. Apparently thats a no-no around here.
I have learned my lesson and I will keep quiet for the most part now.Sorry for the trouble (I got an email saying I was annoying too many people).
|6 years 8 weeks ago||Sorry my bad||
I misread that.
|6 years 8 weeks ago||Can we||
get Dantonio's take on this already?
