"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."

***Sports writers can get free tickets to events. WRONG. Unethical, lowlife ones maybe. Professional ones simply can't.
***Sports writers love the travel and jet-setting. WRONG.
***Sports writers are buddy-buddy with the athletes and coaches they cover. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.
***Sports writers want the team they cover to win. WRONG. Most reporters I know could care less and are more prone to prefer the opposite of that team's trend (watching a losing team win for once or watching Michigan lose 3 football games in a row).
***Sports writers love free food. Well, OK, it's true, since most sports writers are manpigs. But the pizza and hotdogs seriously gets stale fast.
