"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."

Yes...lets be honest - they had a pretty decent shot to beat Michigan today so of course they have a chance to beat MSU. Failure in the red zone killed PSU today but I was pretty nervous in the 4th quarter.
|1 week 3 days ago||This doesnt make sense. The||
This doesnt make sense. The 2015 recruits (now freshman in school) were all signed before the softball season and before Driesenga even got injured. The 2016 recruits being talked about in this and other post wont even ben in school until Driesenga is already gone. So no recruits decisions in either class could have been affected at all by her. The only thing that could have been affected is allocating scholarship money across existing players.
|1 week 5 days ago||You are right - this is so||
You are right - this is so obvious that the 9 yard line is better. The arguments for having it on the 11 involve words and abstract concepts...the argument for having it on the 9 involves hard numbers like you clearly show above.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Also Thomas started in the||
Also Thomas started in the bowl game against Kansas St. No one seems to remember that..so by the end of the year, he started a game. the criticism of the Gedeon non-redshirt is ridiculous also...Gedeon started vs OSU as a freshmand and had 5 tackles in that game I recall.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You mean he claims he didnt||
You mean he claims he didnt send it...no one k ows whether that is the case. Of course, MSU fans think he and his brother are just making that up to make sure Butt doesnt get any more criticism for it. But they dont know whether he really did..and neither does anyone on this board.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||That may have been the||
That may have been the case..but perhaps they did that so they could be on special teams together. Gedeon was out so that freed up a spot on the coverage teams but i didnt see if Winovich was on those.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||You sure about that? Brady||
You sure about that? Brady Pallante is also number 45 and was playing at defensive tackle the last couple series. Unless they had two number 45's out there, then I dont know how Winovich was playing. Michigan had announced before the game that Winovich had switched fromm 44 to 45 before the game.

Is Sione Houma now effectively the 3rd string running back ahead of Derrick Green? Houma was getting carries out of one back formations in the first half before Green even saw the field.

I thonk that was his comment in response to a question as to whether they would try for a medical redshirt for Brain Cole.

Trying to figure out whats more pathetic..A) her trying to get Peppers to contact her or B) you encouraging people. to harass her? Close but Im going with B.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Davis and Reese have made it||
Davis and Reese have made it pretty clear they want nothing to do with playing fullback.
|5 weeks 11 hours ago||And one of those you are||
And one of those you are counting has been injured all year..so you might need to change it to just one.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Easy answer..the public||
Easy answer..the public relations hit they would rake if they did not offer it would cost them more than the $200k. If they didnt offer the medical scholarship, this would be used against them for negative recruiting by every school.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Both Thomas and Gedeon||
Both Thomas and Gedeon started games as freshman...Gedeon started vs OSU and Thomas started in the bowl game against Kansas St. I know that goes against the revisionist history in this blog that those guys only played a few plays on special teams.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||That doesnt make me feel too||
That doesnt make me feel too comfortable..you are saying fullback should be fine because we have a guy that has played a little there after switching positions, a guy who hasnt stepped on the field this year because of a serious injury, another one that is a walkon, and a guy who is sort of shaped like a fullback.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Both Davis and Reese have||
Both Davis and Reese have made it pretty clear that they want nothing to do with playng fullback. If those two end up at Michigan, they may end up playing some there but they have made it clear they would not be coming to Michigan if they though they would be playing fullback.

How can you possibly think this wasnt posted? This blows my mind.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Its a bit early to hand over||
Its a bit early to hand over next year's starting job to O'Korn. There is no substantial insight into that other than random "insiders" posting on message boards that he is best QB on roster and has the job locked up. That always happens with transfers sitting out as there is no way to disprove any rumors of how they are tearing up practice as they cant go in the game for us to see and the coaches rarely ever comment on them.

Tryning to find someone else to shift the blame to doesnt help the problem. It happened - move on.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Too late...this is going to||
Too late...this is going to end up being a black mark on Michigan fans for reacting so bad (yes, I realize a few fans of all teams would do similar). This is going to be negatve PR for the program and Im sure will be used to negatively recruit against Michigan. Its already starting to go viral on Twitter how bad he is being treated..seee below.

Obviously you didnt look at his twitter mentions...its as ugly as you would imagine.

Thank god all fans dont feel the need to start such a stupid thread. No one cares to hear your venting. We all saw the same game.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Agree - you Have to give some||
Agree - you Have to give some credit to old staff for developing a walkon (Ryan Glasgow) into the player he is now. Everyone laughed when Hoke claimed a part in developing NFL talents like Taylor Lewan since Lewan only played for him the last 3 of his 5 years at Michigan. Lets not be entirely hypocritical and not give any credit to previous staff for development of those playing well. I think this shows the skill development was there across the entire defense.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Yes - Allen did get a||
Yes - Allen did get a scholarship for this year..but I guess that doesnt mean anything concrete for next year for Allen if numbers were super tight.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Sounds like a bit of a||
Sounds like a bit of a reach...neither Nordin or David have been considered elite punters and Baxter even said last week they are looking at a couple Aussie punters. That would mean 3 scholarships for those positions. Unfortunately its hard to read this as anything but a knock on David.

No - the Northwestern game was the first game that he was dressed for.

Gant is an interesting case given the lack of depth at LB next year. It seems like he will be needed despite not playing much outside of special teams.
