"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."

Alum96, do you think there's the possibility that Bush is holding out on his commitment so as to ensure that his teammates are extended full offers? I think it's strange that we're his rumored leader (to the point where we may be a silent commit) but he hasn't committed after months of waiting while two of his less-heralded teammates jumped at the chance.

I love this post, but you need to update after Conolly fixed the numbers this morning. There was an Oregon State problem that caused their offensive efficiency to skyrocket due to a glitch, and this bumped our advanced stats higher than they should have been.

That would totally paralyze the team, you see, because then we'd have to play O'Korn. You know, O'Korn - the player we thought we'd have to start anyway.

You know how coaches sometimes pretend to be interested in other jobs to get a raise?

Go read Bambi's latest diary post about returning starters on next year's Big Ten contenders. Then consider plugging in Hill.
If Hill wants to continue playing football (and I'd understand why if he doesn't), this is the perfect marriage of need and opportunity. The fact that guys like Gentry and O'Korn have potential only makes this better, too, because it mitigates the risk from Hill's injury history.

He's gotta be ready, able, and willing in order for this to be a possibility. But if all three of those conditions have been satisfied I think you'd be crazy not to play him with a possible Big Ten title on the line, to say nothing of an outside shot at the playoff.

If Mone is healthy, conditioned, and willing - and those are all significant contingencies - I think this is a no-brainer. The guy is a true sophomore with excellent size and strength at a position of minimum depth and crucial importance. If, in his current condition, he is one of the three or our best defensive tackles, he absolutely has to play.
We're two games away from a Big Ten Championship Game appearance. In year freaking one. We can do this and it's not crazy, but we need all hands on deck.

I'm chill. I don't care. In fact, I'm willing to push the envelope farther with respect to things like this, because I don't see any moral harm in it.
But we're gonna get roasted for it.

I believe you're thinking of Khalid Kareem, who is a DE from MI. This thread is referring to Kareem Walker, who is a RB from NJ.

I don't think Evans's spot in the "Top Choice" column signfies that he's maybe likely to get pushed out. Brian's post says that he's there because he's taking visits.

Despite the fact that this doesn't really matter, this makes me feel much better because it confirms that objective, dispassionate viewers saw what I hoped was true: that Michigan and MSU were roughly equally talented teams and MSU won what was essentially a toss-up game on a freak play.

I'm not sure S&P data can be manipulated that way. Can it?
Also, the data will self-regulate based on playing a weirdo Air Force squad because it's opponent adjusted.

Good info. Thanks.
To my point, though - Brian's article inverts the numbers. He claims MSU is 27th in rushing S&P and 47th in passing. The opposite is true. Which I love!

Brian, MSU is 47th in rush D s&p. They're 27th in pass D. I know - I don't get it either.

Easy call - Gary Harris. His game against Nik Stauskas in '13 was nutty stupid good; one of those games that won't be remembered because of what Nik did against him. But those two guys were like gladiators just slaying from all game. Had my jaw on the floor.

No recruit is ever truly a "program making" guy, but I've been trumpeting it for years - DPJ is as close to a critical addition as a recruit can be. He's in the "Peppers" stratosphere and he's in our backyard.

I love this player, but I don't understand how we have an available scholarship for him.
Total conjecture (no insider info at all, firing completely from the hip), but perhaps Andrew David isn't happy here.
