"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."

|20 weeks 3 days ago||I guess the other thing||
that makes this season not as dynamic is the cast is too large. The simplicity of the juxtaposition of Rust and Marty was the heartbeat to the first season. This season is missing that "pull" or whatever you want to call it.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||The story doesn't fascinate me||
quite like the first season's. However, I think some of the elements are still there (the characters are interesting, the cinematography is fantastic, and the acting is pretty consistent) to make this season good. I guess I just don't care about a missing city manager from a working class LA suburb that much. Plus, Vince Vaughn (whose work I typically love) is a bit of a snoozer.
The first episode was decent, the second was fantastic (and not just for the ending), but the third felt stagnant.
Just my thoughts.

|28 weeks 2 days ago||Tough call, but I gotta say...||
Fish and chips at Conor O'Neill's. I lived in England and never found fish and chips that damn good.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||I love Ryan Field||
it's like 20 minutes from my house and feels like a home game when Michigan comes to town.
|31 weeks 4 hours ago||Maybe an hour and a half||
Maybe two with the encore
|31 weeks 11 hours ago||Saw him last night||
at the Chicago Theater. Great show! Played everything off of the new album, with an encore of older songs including "Chicago" which brought the house down.
|32 weeks 18 hours ago||Chi City!||
|32 weeks 2 days ago||I used the live in London||
and I'd recommend staying near Earl's Court. It's an area with a lot of American hotels that are reasonably priced (by British standards). It won't be a hassle to get to Wembley from there (via Tube). It's safe, affordable food, decent amount of stuff to do there, and it's a 20-30 minute Tube ride from the heart of the city.
It terms of things to do... the markets are great (Borough, Portobello Road, Brick Lane, Dalston, etc.), the parks are exquisite (the Heath, Regent's, Green are my favorite), and the museums are world-class (Tate Modern, V&A, British). So much to do, not enough time.
Enjoy the best city in the World!

Does this mean I get to watch the season premier of Game of Thrones without having to pay for HBO?
|39 weeks 2 days ago||This is nonsense||
the only thing that matters today are llamas
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Video of the year||
Was nearly in tears. The additional clip is also worth watching.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Saw all the Best Picture nominees||
was only really impressed with The Imitation Game, Whiplash, Boyhood, and Birdman. Thought Frank and Fury were overlooked.
Some great acting jobs this year though. Particularly Simmons, Redmayne, Cumberbatch, Arquette, Moore, and Keaton.

also misses the 6-commit-a-daypalooza
|41 weeks 1 day ago||The Violent Femmes are FANTASTIC!!!!||
Wisconsin band that sounded like an early 80s version of the Velvet Underground and wore overalls. Love their music.

|41 weeks 1 day ago||Judd Apatow's movies||
are the furthest thing from funny
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Just because it's unknown||
doesn't mean it's an unpopular opinion. That is one of the best shows on TV right now.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Don't feel old,||
feel blessed that you never had to watch that "movie"
|41 weeks 1 day ago||I very much enjoy early/mid-90s female country music singers.||
Give me Bonnie Raitt, Reba, Trisha, Wynonna, and LeAnn (with the exception being Shania Twain, she's beyond terrible) and keep your shitty ass Blake Shelton's wife, something about an Antebellum Era, and whatever other atrocious nonsense is out there.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Probably because you live in Wichita.||
Sorry, douche thing to say, but it was there for the taking and I just had to.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Strategery||
|41 weeks 2 days ago||A few things:||
First, what's your source on TRich's medical redshirt? Not saying I don't believe you, but this is the first I've heard of this.
Second, the younger offensive linemen were beaten by guys who were older than them (Glasgow, Miller, Braden) and if we've learned anything over the past couple season, offensive linemen take longer to develop. Just my opinion, but once Miller and Glasgow graduate after next season, I think Kugler and Dawson secure starting spots on the line.
Lastly, when you take 47 kids in 2 years, some (regardless of star ratings) are not going to pan out due to being poorly ranked in the first place. This happens at Bama, Ohio State, USC, everywhere. And others, that are more underrated, will exceed expectations (Funchess, Henry, the Glasgows) or you get glimpses that show they are moving in the right direction (K. Hill, Strib, Drake, Godin). I also think you're giving up on Shallman and McCray way too early as there are some pretty good senior football players in front of them on the depth chart.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||If you're ever in Chicago||
let me know, I wanna buy you a beer. LOL.
No seriously, amaizing story!
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Meyer also||
picked up a lot of guys who were considered Ohio State leans long before he was hired. The guy can flat out recruit, but if we get Weber, Jefferson, and/or Wheatley after already having grabbed Gentry and Jones, that'd be equally as impressive in my book.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||I might be mistaken||
but didn't Roy Roundtree commit without visiting?
|42 weeks 4 days ago||I believe you||
but who is saying it?
