"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."

Because Hoke is not going to fire either of them.

During Devin's 0-fer stretch on Saturday night, he misfired on quick slants and hitches. It doesn't get much easier/simplistic than that.

Neither Borges nor Funk are going anywhere unless they choose to leave of their own free will.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Uh, no?||
Jack Miller was a lightly regarded low 3 star recruit. Graham Glasgow is a walk-on. If Chris Bryant could stay healthy, he'd probably be playing. The 4 and 5 star offensive line recruits are all either true freshmen or redshirt freshmen.

Program rule instituted by Brandon when he took over in 2010.

|2 years 13 weeks ago||Fwiw, a first time failed||
Fwiw, a first time failed drug test results in an automatic one game suspension. A second failed test is an automatic four game suspension. A third results in a one year suspension with possible dismissal from the team.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||A little more time and||
A little more time and seasoning obviously. He's only a true sophomore for christ's sake. He probably should've redshirted last year. Sunseri has nothing to do with Jarrod Wilson's developmoent so the comparison is meaningless.

You should probably take a beather before you embarrass yourself any further.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||The situations between||
The situations between Michigan and the the four schools that you mentioned are not comparable. We're still trying to climb our way out of the worst three year stretch in the history of the program which includes the dumpster fires that were the 2010 & 2011 recruiting classes.

If an '15 QB from the state of Michigan is eventually offered by UM, it will be Alex Malzone (and even that isn't very likely).
|2 years 16 weeks ago||You can add another name to||
You can add another name to your 2015 QB list. Yortown's Riley Neal has been in frequent contact with Coach Heck and Borges. Here are his highlightshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1uRYaEqgHA

If you don't like the "out-executing" talk from Borges, then you must've absolutely loathed the Rich Rod era and his offensive philosophy. When Coach Rod was here, some high school coaching friends of mine were invited to attend practices and had the opportunity to talk with him and Coaches Smith & Magee and their belief was that execution is far and away the single most important component to making an offense work. Most would be stunned to find out that we usually only went into gamday with 20 to 25 different plays, max, in the gameplan when Coach Rod was here. He had a very small playbook and that was by design. Practice a very limited number of plays and get to the point that you can execute them flawlessly in a game. If Magge or Smith wanted to add plays, the first thing out of Coach Rod's mouth was "Okay. What plays are we taking out of the gameplan to replace them with?"

I think they concluded long ago that Shane will have to be ready to play this season if Gardner were to get hurt.

The coaches told Shane months ago that he won't be redshirting.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Wrong||
First, the Eddins comment was made during their fall camp visit back in August 2011, not last year. Eddins was a defensive lineman in '11. He was moved to TE last year. Second, Griffith absolutely did not say that Eddins was going to be a "breakout player". Revsine asked Griffith and DiNardo to name an under the radar player that nobody was talking about who they thought had a chance to make a contribution. Griffith mentioned Chris Eddins. That was the extent of the comment. I can tell you for a fact that Hoke and the rest of our coaches respect Griffith's knowledge of the game.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||There is very little contact||
There has been very little contact between our coaches and Campbell in recent months. It's clear that there are other QBs higher on their wish list than Jayru for the '15 class at the moment. He's going to have to prove himself to our coaches at camp this summer in order to put himself into the mix for an offer.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||The coaches offered Speight||
The coaches offered Speight first because they like him better than Cornwell or O'Connor. In regards to 2015 QB recruiting, I believe that Brother Rice's Alex Malzone will be the QB that the coaches target first and eventually offer.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Campbell was a class of '09||
Campbell was a class of '09 recruit. Carr retired in November of 2007.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||We already do both zone &||
We already do both zone & man. The inside zone was probably our most frequently called running play the past two seaasons.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Fwiw, Coach Montgomery and||
Fwiw, Coach Montgomery and Coach Hecklinski were Wilton Speight's primary recruiters.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Borges used the Pistol||
Borges used the Pistol formation from time to time in 2010 with Ryan Lindley. There's a bit of a misconception that you need a running QB to utilize the Pistol. Petrino used it at Arkansas with Mallett. Okalhoma St utilized it with Brandon Weeden. Both were and are pure pocket passers.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||Your comment about man vs||
Your comment about man vs zone isn't really true. The beauty of what Harbaugh and the 49ers are doing is that they're incorporating spread-option runnning plays into their already existing traditional man blocking concepts.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Cool. Thanks.||
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Magnus, in your opinion...||
Is this unnamed defensive player who is rumored to be leaving a role player or potential starter? In other words, will his departure hurt?
|2 years 48 weeks ago||If you're going to use Sam||
If you're going to use Sam Webb as a source, then at least make it clear that he believes we have increased our lead for Derrick Green in the past few days. His belief was that we were his leader by a mile but now he has bumped that lead up to two miles.

Did you fall and hit your head or something?
In 2011 we beat Notre Dame, SDSU, Northwestern & Nebraska. This year we beat a likely nine win Northwestern team.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Agreed||
|3 years 3 weeks ago||The offense that Borges ran||
The offense that Borges ran at SDSU in '09 & '10 was nothing even remotely close to that of Walsh's "west coast" offense. Ryan Lindley had free rein to change plays at the LOS. It's quite possible that Hoke & Borges just don't trust Denard to audible.
Here is footage from SDSU's bowl game against Navy in 2010. Notice that they begin the game in no huddle mode (which they did quite often in '10). Lindley audibles frequently.
