"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."

|5 weeks 5 days ago||Nope. They did not celebrate||
Nope. They did not celebrate there because that's where the play occurred, or to check on anyone. The whole team came and celebrated in the south end zone with visiting parents for a good 5 minutes. Then Connor Cook hoisted Paul Bunyan above his shoulders and skipped down Michigan's sideline by himself to the student section and was then followed by teammates.

I have told everyone who would listen for years, but everyone leaves out the most important part of the Mike Hart quote.

Yay Mario (potentially). Boo Toby. Booooo Toby.

I want to say that either Durkin, Mattison or a DL player said in an interview that they're having them learn to play several spots on the line for flexibility and depth.

As a Miami fan, was sad to see Fisch go as OC to Jags. Stephen Morris flourished under him and the Canes had a very efficient offense the year before he was plucked by Jacksonville. Big, big fan.

Swarbrick cited strength of schedule as a reason - I guess if OSU is better, losing to them will look better than losing to Mich.

Why is the satisfaction of fans a justification for depriving kids earning money for others from being compensated?

I don't understand what the concern is with having a minor league football team loosely associated with a university. Is it what everyone is used to? No. Does it seem like a weird concept based on the current system? Sure. I just don't understand what's so noble or great about amateurism. It's a concept that, at least according to some accounts, was invented to allow the wealthy who attended universities to continue playing sports they enjoyed by eliminating the ability of professionals to play in their stead. In every other aspect of our society we encourage people to get paid for things they are good at. I have yet to see a reasonable justification for amateurism. Most are something related to: (1) maintenance of the status quo, (2) because people who watch college football like it, or (3) compensating students means they can't be students (or good students).
And yes, I do think it is greedy and unreasonable to say "I should get what the market says I should get, but people who could detract from the labor budget from which I am paid should get their compensation set by a cartel."

To quite Ichiro, "To tell the truth, I'm not excited to go to Cleveland, but we have to. If I ever saw myself saying I'm excited to go to Cleveland, I'd punch myself in the face, because I'm lying."

"I don't believe they are employees" - how so? What factors point against it being an employer-employee relationship?

I hate Urban as much as the next guy, but based on what I've read he's doing this because he needs a lineman, not to screw with Michigan. This is a good thing - OSU's line has depth issues too.

The sad part is that there's recruits and parents who he's able to convince that he's just a wholesome, swell guy. I bet he says "aw, shucks" on every visit he goes on.

Now I wonder if Magnuson were healthy right now, who would be on the right side, Dawson or Braden? Have to think that you would have the 2nd team guy take reps at left so the starter can focus solely on the position he'll most likely play, but who knows.

I don't think that's quite the design of the blitz in the second play - the linebacker is gunning for Gardner with little to no regard for Toussaint (I admit it's possiblebthe chip Funchess gets on him may influence his decision of who to try to tackle). This play is really blown up because that safety comes screaming down to the line of scrimmage with reckless abandon. If Funchess realizes blocking that linebacker is futile (I doubt he's allowed the decision) and blocks that safety, this is 6. Or, if that safety is a step later because he actually waits to read the give and respects play action, Toussaint has him one on one with space to make him miss.

Front seven looked very good. Gardner a little bit concerning given the opponent, but I think he'll figure it out. Still like Smith better than Green at this point. Stribling is a huge coup.

It's possible the statute defines sexual assault as sexual contact less than intercourse, so I'm betting this was consensual hankypanky with a minor.

Only pointing it out because I have made the same mistake more than a few times - tenet, not tenant. Then again the fumble debate occurs so frequently on here that it probably has started paying rent, so maybe that's actually what you meant.

Lolz Eleven Warriors less than a month ago:
"Damien Harris - Berea (Ky.) Madison Southern High School
As impressive as Derrell Scott was on the 21st in Columbus, Harris may have been the best running back in attendance. Built like a college sophomore already, Harris has an incredible first step to go along with great balance and vision. Oh yeah, he also runs a 4.36. Meh. Considered an early lean for Michigan, Harris left Ohio State singing a different tune, claiming that the Buckeyes were now a co-favorite of his along with the Wolverines. This will likely be a classic Ohio State vs. Michigan battle until the fax machine is fired up."
