"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."

Anyone who says that ND offensive linemen don't develop skills is flat wrong.
Young couldn't hold nearly that well as an underclassman.

Nothing to add about the Free Press's pathetic treatment of this situation.
I just want to write that following a Tigers team during a playoff year without John Lowe has been annoying or worse. But every morning, I smile as I avoid that assclown publication. I suspect that I'm in good company.
Anyone know how much of an impact all of this has ad on the Free Press? It can't be helping its image. I wonder if after the initial excitement there has been a meaningful dip in sales and/or internet hits.

Sadly for the Bucks, the Pol Pot and 'Dolf Hitler eyeblack patchs were sold out.

Dantonio considering a new job?
If I was Tressel, I'd have someone tasting my food.

You look at this and wonder -- why no QB...?
Then you remember 1984. That team was crippled when #4 went down.

And let's apply what you found with what we've seen. It holds up pretty good.
QBs at UM (after Bo) morphed into TE-sized brutes made to withstand the punishment. And fairly mobile recruits (like Henne) were bulked up to where they became immobile. To survive in the pocket, our system essentially required the QB to become immobile, robbing the team of a great weapon.
Those men took a pounding back there. They had to be huge. And still they could get hurt -- look at Henne's senior season.
Brady and Henson were the exceptions. Mallett was on his way to playing at 6'6" and 260.

So if I send Brian an email telling a Feagin-related tale of gerbils, applesauce and recruiting hostesses, Brian lacks cajones if he wants a little confirmation before running with the story?

For season ticket purposes -- this year's home schedule sells itself.
Next year will be interesting if we have 6 or 7 wins during the 2009 season.
I think we'll win 8 or 9.

Word has it they're under consideration as the 2010 Home Opener opponent.

Bo inherited a ton of talent.
RR inherited...you get the idea.
I think he'll be fine by 2010 and heroic by 2011.
