"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."

|1 day 21 hours ago||You are not going to overcome||
You are not going to overcome the Grand Canyon-esque talent gap in year one, and probably not year two either. Patience. Harbaugh hasn't even turned the ship around yet. All he did was raise it up from the fucking bottom of the ocean floor. Things will get better.

are going to have a long afternoon regardless of who takes snaps from center for MSU.

Michigan won that game decisively 31-3.
I think Kirk Herbstreit got KO'ed of that game too.
|6 days 21 hours ago||Well, Ohio State is not that great in Run Defense||
Ohio State's run defense is 30th in the land (194 YPG). By contrast, Michigan's is 4th in the country (100.2 YPG). I was not surprised that MSU could move the ball on the ground, with their OL healthy and some good backs. Indiana did the same with a banged up TB Howard.
In pass defense Ohio State is on even footing with Michigan (ranked 4th nationally, 163 YPG) - Ohio State is ranked 5th (164 YPG).
My biggest criticism of Tim Beck has been his reluctance this year to emphasize the quarterback as a runner compared to Tom Herman, who always retained this a staple of the OSU attack. But on Saturday, I was wrong. Beck called for a lot of carries for QB Barrett, but the outcomes were poor: 15 carries, only 44 yards.
What seems to be missing from Ohio State's attack is the high-temp and razz-ma-tazz stuff that made Urban Meyer famous at Utah and Florida. What's worse is, there's just no excuse. I mean Jesus Christ, the Buckeyes have JT Barrett, Ezekiel Elliott, Jalin Marshall and Braxton freaking Miller in the starting lineup. That's equal to or better than what Urban ever had a Florida.
Something's not right there.

A picture posted from Friday, November 20th.
I wish strength and peace for Chad's parents and their entire family.
If you have them, or will ever have them, then just hug, kiss and lvoe them like no tomorrow.

I'm really feeling sad right now. Heartbreaking.
I cannot imagine how his parents and family must feel today.
Prayers and love to them from all.

I don't know what to say.
I feel so sad for that child's entire family.
Rest in peace litte man.
|6 days 23 hours ago||PSU @ MSU = Christian Hackendemur||
I'm sorry, but my brain can't even process a PSU win over MSU in East Lansing on Saturday.
Does not compute.
Worst OL in the BIG10 arguably this year vs. one of BIG10's best DLs.
That would be a difficult football game to watch in my opinion.
Thankfully, I've already decided that I won't.

Wasn't the last 115,109 vs Notre Dame in 2013?

Never ceases to amaze how many adults never get it.
|1 week 39 min ago||Meh, facts show this: Offensively Michigan is below average||
versus their conference peers and nationally.
After 11 games, Michigan is ranked 72nd nationally in total offense.
Rushing offense is ranked 8th this year (161 YPG) vs. 7th last year (163 YPG)
Passing offense is ranked 7th this year (227 YPG) vs. 11th last year (170 YPG).
So Michigan has not really improved in the rushing department at all YOY.
Biggest improvement has been in passing offense with Harbaugh schemes, ice-water-in-the-veins-Rudock and some halfway decent OL blocking.

but not like one might expect. Michigan zeroes in on Saquon Barkley which is 80% of PSU's offense, and dominates this game on both sides of the ball. MIchigan's screens, power and misdirection is too much for PSU defense. Rudock has monster game.
Beaver Stadium seats are empty because PSU fans hit the bars in the 3rd quarter.
Michigan leads 24-0 at half.
Michigan 31 Penn State 13
I also predict one or two bullshit targeting penalties against Michigan which yanks 1 or 2 key UM players out of the OSU game for a time. And we're all incensed about it because it's our lot in life, we were made to suffer, plus BIG10 refs.

I'm so sorry for the parents and Chad's entire family. This will be a very painful time for them. Hopefully Chad continues to receive good care and plenty of rest going forward. Prayers of strength to them all and to Chad. He is one brave little boy.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Bo's helmet stickers were just as big in dimension||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Dude, that is really cool||
Seriously, you should send that to coach Harbaugh.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I disagree.||
I love the helmet stickers and the Michigan helmet.
And I wouldn't change a thing.
The only thing Jim Harbaugh is guilty of is maybe being more generous in doling them out to players than Bo Schembechler. Curt Gowdy said that Rick Leach had 48 helmet stickers apparently in 1977. I doubt that was correct, but I don't care. Rick Leach ran the fucking triple option at Michigan for four years, starting 48 games (ridiculous today) and deserved every damn one of them.
Your preferences on the entire helmet award question depend greatly on when you started watching the Michigan football movie. If you started in the late 1990s, then I understand your view. If you started watching in 1971, then I'd also understand.
But this about today. Today Harbaugh is bringing back something that was old and cool with something new.
And I love that he did it.
I don't disagree that a naked Michigan helmet still kicks ass.
But I like Jim Harbaugh and I think the players love these helmet stickers, so let them earn helmet stickers.

Congratulations to them and thanks to all modern-day Marines for their service to
our country. Gratitude to you.

Thanks for the correction!
I have suffered one hamstring injury in my life at a young age, and the prolific number of f-bombs I unleashed into the atmospher are probably still circling Cologne, Germany today.
Also, Tim Beckman is a real jerk.
