"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 15 hours ago||What's your hot take on Iowa-MSU?||
Am I crazy to think that Iowa could give MSU a great game -- and possibly pull off the upset?
|1 day 15 hours ago||I hate to agree with this.||
As an Ohioan, it's bad enough here right now. But if OSU were to get in and win it all again? My God. I'm moving.
I'm sure it's not all that much better for you MI folks, though, with Sparty...maybe worse.
How's Bolivia this time of the year?
|4 days 3 hours ago||Nice start to the holiday sports weekend.||
Michigan BB win.
Let's keep it rolling!
|4 days 3 hours ago||That game.||
A great one; I was there in Section 17. But man...that was a BAD OSU team we beat that year. OSU in 2011 squeezed by Toledo, got their butts kicked by Miami (FL), and lost to Purdue, on their way to a 6-7 season.
Yup, the last time we beat a good OSU team was back in 2003.
It's time to do it again. It's been too damn long.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Not a Bears fan, but...||
...I can't say I didn't enjoy that. A lot.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Thought so.||
But thanks for confirming. :-)
|4 days 13 hours ago||So...||
...am I the only one here who largely forgoes football on Thanksgiving (at least for a while, until we leave to go to visit family) and instead watches the annual MST3K Turkey Day Marathon?
|5 days 11 hours ago||Good call.||
Guinness is the beer that eats like a meal, anyway.
|5 days 11 hours ago||The bomb.||
Three Floyds is truly a remarkable brewery. I highly recommend the trip to Munster, because the food there is great, too.
|5 days 15 hours ago||Hmmm.||
Quite a few, actually.
Ryan Glasgow (damn shame there)
Rudock (especially recently)
Ross III (thought he looked solid vs. PSU)
|1 week 3 hours ago||Happens for every OSU game...||
You can never get there "early enough."
We expect to be queued up in the "parked car line" on S. Main St. around, oh, 6:15 AM or so, waiting for the course to open at 7(ish).
|1 week 12 hours ago||:-(||
I hate everything about this news. Can't imagine what the family is feeling. I wish Tammi, her husband, and Grandpa Lloyd all the best.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Damn that's some fine work there.||
Really, really fine.
I'm ready for kickoff NOW.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Their tails, too.||
|1 week 17 hours ago||Gotta go with...||
|1 week 17 hours ago||The Knowledge.||
|1 week 17 hours ago||For comparison...||
They did this at Michigan Stadium this year for the Oregon State game.
Different picture-taker/provider, though. Still an awesome picture -- but you'll notice when you go full zoom on certain sections, it gets a tad blurry.
|1 week 1 day ago||BTW...I found Waldo.||
See if you can find him. Hint: Michigan-dominated section.
Side note...you gottta hand it to the PSU folks -- when they do a white-out, EVERYONE participates. Pretty impressive, scrolling around and seeing the near 100% compliance.
|1 week 1 day ago||Amazing quality on this one.||
I don't recall Michigan's 360 pic earlier in the year (home opener?) being nearly as good in terms of the level of zoom.
And yup...I urge everyone to locate Harbaugh in this photo. Maybe doing some grass tasting a la Les "Not Fired Yet" Miles.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||^That.||
A thousand times. That.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I can't argue with the OP.||
I only wish I could have been there in person.
The best concert I've ever been to?
Pink Floyd, in 1994, at...um....Ohio Stadium.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||I can't believe that just happened.||
Actually, with this team, I can.
Pathetic. Not sure I'd really WANT to see these guys in the postseason.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||I dig both of those shows, too...||
...one other one I might suggest? AMC's 'Humans.' Quite good. Quite thought-provoking, too.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Enjoy the last few years of your 30s.||
I mean...REALLY enjoy them.
Have a great one today, LSA!
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I own a (crazy) Golden too, but...||
Goldens were British (or perhaps Scottish) dogs originally...right?
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Nice CoM reference.||
Yup. That's exactly what popped into my mind, too, when I saw that TD episode.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Really?||
I watched the first episode and didn't want to come back for any more. But...if it actually gets better...? I might go back and revisit. I did get a kick out of Tim Robbins. Not so much Jack Black, though.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Yup.||
I agree. Here, we have three cop figures, plus Vince, plus Vince's entourage...it's just too much. When they found Vince's dude in the hole, I had to think first, "OK, who is THAT GUY?" and secondly, "Why should I care?"
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Well...||
Do yourself a favor and DON'T watch The Brink.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I really want to like this season.||
I really, REALLY do.
I just don't, at least not right now. I certainly don't HATE it, by any means, and I am interested to a degree where I'm not gonna bail out now -- of course, the 8-episode season certainly played into that decision.
There's just something...offputting and non-engaging for me about this season. I know my mind keeps making (very unfair) comparisons to Season 1, but I just can't help it.
Anyway...I'll definitely ride this out and see where this road goes.
