the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

From what I think I understand (among all of the different reports), the man who was ordered to strip down was actually the carjacking victim/hostage.
It seems the cops were worried about explosive devices after the older brother was found to have them strapped to his chest after he died.

As many others have stated, there is now a substantial amount of evidence to back up the fairly intuitive idea that repeated head trauma can have a long-term negative impact. Football players offer a large sample size for these recent headlining studies. My question is when will there be more of a focus on the other sports that involve any kind of contact. Even if you forget about things like boxing and martial arts, other sports like hockey and lacrosse probably have similar long-term effects. Hell, even soccer players are taught to use their heads to move the ball around regularly.
In the end (for better or worse), I don't actually see many changes into how any of these sports are played. There is already more of a focus on developing safer helmet and padding technology, and I expect that to continue.

Yup, they won in 2007 with just the Circle of Life.

The young lion in the first half was one of the female coxswains on the team. The older lion that did the dancing and was held up at the end was male.

This kid has been invaluable over the last few years. So glad that he comes away with this recognition.
One thing that I think has been understated so far is how much senior leadership the team is losing after this year. Kovacs, Denard, and Lewan (assuming he is gone) all fit very naturally into that role. As an outside observer, I don't see many of the current juniors/sophomores filling that void. Jake Ryan might be an obvious choice, but this team is going to need others to step up like Big Will did this year.

I'm really looking forward to reading what this kid has to say in the post game pressers over the next few years.

My bad. I guess that I, along with others who have brought this up, just never had a reason to pay attention to which hand he was holding the ball with until his throwing hand went numb.

When he's had the ball the past couple of weeks, he's ALWAYS ran with it in his left hand. In addition to his lack of throwing during warm-ups, I have to believe that his right arm is still experiencing a lot of problems. I can only wonder if this has also compromised his ball security if he is always carrying with his less dominant hand.

Absolutely not. But if the country is trending toward 14-16 team superconferences and the B1G is forced to expand again, I have a hard time seeing us getting any significantly better schools.

As someone currently residing in Champaign-Urbana, I've seen a lot more hatred toward Michigan than Northwestern. They have the "muck fichigan" shirts in all of the store windows year-round.

I've been thinking about this for a while now, and there is definitely a problem that has developed over the last two years or so. I graduated last year, but for a few years now, I have noticed more and more students simply feeling apathetic towards football in general. Some people always showed up, and more are now than ever.
