"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 year 7 weeks ago||Coaching||
Coaching and talent development: they has it, we don't.
Their offensive scheme is cool and works at all levels. Ours: nope, nice try.
It's kind of funny that we recruit at the same levels, but we suck at developing players and they can stick true frosh QBs into the lineup and keep rolling. So funny I want to punch myself in the face.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||The people||
Were not hobos nor bottles of coke, although that would have been delicious. We were at a golf outing after the Minny game. One person told the rumor I repeated here a couple of times. Not to grab attention or to show off, but more like sharing information. After he was done, another guy in our group said he heard the exact same rumor. Uncorraborated.

In a thread a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned a rumor I had heard from two people:
The pieces seem to be falling into place...excellent...excellent
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Who||
The person that told me is a friend. As They were laying it out to a group of us, someone in the group said that they had also heard the same rumor. Two independent, separate corroborations of the same rumor. I didn't necessarily believe it at first (John Harbaugh, really?). But after reading Bacon's inside info, it seems like the first pieces are falling into place. DB will be gone this month. Hoke will be allowed to finish off the season while a new AD (Manuel, Bates, someone) is hired. Like UM often does, they will allow a coach to "resign" and then hire John H who will then fill out the rest of his staff. Maybe Mattison stays? The two of them have a working relationship.

While we speculate, I want to share a rumor I heard from two separate people. At least one of whom is not a figment of my imagination.

Who the hell reads People magazine?! I'll tell ya, my mom and sister read People. Dear god, I hope DB and staff don't get any (more) dumb ideas...

Someone please teach Frank Clark the "Frank the Tank" dance from Old School. Perfect sack dance...if we ever actually see him sack anyone.
Student section cheers, "Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank!" as Frank goes into his patented sack dance.
Hell, think of the t-shirt possibilities.

Great article. I'll be there cheering on the team tomorrow too. Your seats won't be as good as press row, but the ability to let loose will more than make up for it.
Imma just leave this here...

Ah, that jogged the memory. He came over after the second period thinking the game was actually over (ya know, like two halves in basketball or something). We kindly reminded him that hockey plays 3 periods and to walk away from us. I don't remember if we finished the C-Ya chant with the proper chain of profanities, though he definitely deserved every one of them. The Sharkeez Shark Bowls are a helluva drug...

Your ideas intrigue me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter. In lieu of a newsletter subscription, I will add your book to my Christmas list and unwrap every gift with a giddy anticipation that it may be inside.
Good day sir,

I haven't seen a tweet from @mgoblog in the last couple of days either. That is usually my bat signal when new material hits the front page.

Everytime I see "JMFJ" I [Rob Lowe Parks and Rec voice] literally laugh out loud. As for Trouba, until I see him in the maize and blue on the ice with the team, I remain skeptical of high-level hockey commits. I guess it's good that we're still getting high-level commits, even if they don't stick...take that Sparty!
|4 years 9 weeks ago||Mostly just stuff I hear||
Mostly just stuff I hear around the interwebz from insiderz and stuff. I'm not trying to fan and rumor flames or anything, just thought I'd pose a recruiting question in a recruiting themed thread as opposed to starting something new. We'll all find out for sure with regards to O'Brien in a couple of weeks. I find it odd that we'd take a pass on a player at a position of need, but I'm not our coaches.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||Good points. I like Yuri||
Good points. I like Yuri Wright and hope he goes Blue. I think we'd find room for Dunn with a nice firm handshake to Mike Cox after this year. #noiwillnotmakeacoxjoke
|4 years 9 weeks ago||That is awesome news. Now on||
That is awesome news. Now on the flip side, there have been some pretty good sources saying that we've cooled on O'Brien and he is all but assuredly choosing Tennessee on the 6th. I guess that means we have room for Darboh too?
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Did Eastern motion the TE||
Did Eastern motion the TE over to the far side pre-snap, pre-video? Our defensive alignment is off. RVB, the SDE is lined up to the weakside of the formation along with our SAM Ryan. Hawthorne and Roh are over the strongside of the formation when they are both weakside players. I wonder why we lined up this way if we knew off the bat what was the strong and weak side of the offensive formation.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||I think they're going for||
I think they're going for Bronze. They added a bronze accent to the jerseys when they went all "300" with their logos and stuff. Which on a side note, I still can't find funny enough that they constantly play the "SPARTANS!" and other clips from that homo-erotic movie with no sense of irony or shame. I guess people in glass houses (Pop Evil) can't cast stones though.

I agree in that it's asking for trouble, but there was a pretty sweet picture of Gallon I think going up for a ball and the Maize block M's on his gloves were really visible. I wish I could find the screencap or something from it to show you. I flipped back the DVR to make sure I wasn't hallucinating...

Poor Karsch. It's like carrying the ball to the 1 yard line and having someone else punch it in.

The thought of Danny Hope's mustache catching fire made my day. I imagine him running around looking for a tall glass of milk to put out the flames. Then conducting his next press conference sans the ol' soup strainer. Gold, Jerry.

Is it weird for a grown man like myself to like a college football player I don't even know and am not related to this much? I keep telling myself there's something wrong with me, but man...that kid is something special.

It's good to see Wile has a good leg, but I wish they'd just go for it instead of kicking the 50 yard FG. I understand if it's 4th and 15 from their 33, but I hate to see the FG team trotting out when it's 4th and 1. DR at QB and MANBALL should be able to get 1 yard. It's better than punting at least. [Insert Mathlete's graphs here]

There was a 4th and 1 play for Michigan's O that the chains came out. The refs couldn't tell if it was a first down, so they took a 3x5 card down the pole and slipped it between the ball and the chain pole. 4th down was not converted and ND got the ball back on downs and went on to win the game. Never before or since have I seen refs use a 3x5 card to determine whether or not it was a first down. Forever known as the 3x5 card game.
