"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."

Can we please win this game? Want it so badly...
Damn these are great.

The alumni club of Chicago has a pretty great "HAIL" shirt right now featuring the Sears / Willis Tower in place of the "I" - personally think it is fantastic.
I can't figure out how to embed, but you can find it with a quick scroll on their Facebook page...

In this specific instance, it actually wouldn't have been that crazy to run, especially given some of the success we were (finally) having.
In general, it must have to do with freezing LB's (which happened a tiny bit on the TD above), but I'm sure there's an argument to be had about that benefit vs the extra time where the QB is able to actively read the defense were there no play-action fake.
Interesting topic for discussion.

First time Bama's been an underdog since 2009. Have to take the points even if you don't love their team this year.
Have to agree with all 4 picks and rationale. I was actually looking at the exact same slate. Not much else of interest this weekend other than the Clemson - ND Pick 'em.

My brother and I noticed this during the game and we agreed it would be better if it were removed. If it is sponsored by the company actually providing the service, fine, but otherwise get it out of there - I do think it is a step in the wrong direction, even if a small / subtle one.

I have a feeling the "new" maize would win by more now that people have seen it on the field.
I, for one, think it is fantastic.

I like that we get to see the team sooner, but I think it is going to make Saturday sort of a bummer / letdown. Plus it lacks that familiarity of Saturday Tradition (TM) to mark the start of the season.
Ultimately how we all remember the Thursday start probably has more to do with the outcome of the game than anything else!

Its all about budget... they probably couldn't afford both him and Charles, so they took the guy they've already been working with.

Absolutely - that's my point. But not understanding the importance of "brand" ... seems slightly short sighted. We're on the same page here.

Feel free to explain further. How much have you studied about "brands" to date?
I'd love to hear your defintion and understand how it differs from identity or reputation.

Agree 100% - the AD's idea of "brand" got mixed up with the what the university should stand for.
|14 weeks 8 hours ago||Let's be Honest||
I love Harbaugh, but without a "brand," a degree from Michigan or any other named institution would be worthless. That's why the school you choose matters - its reputation, or functionally, it's brand.
That said, with regard to Brandon shenanigans, he had a messed up interpretation of what might add to brand value and specifically how that pertained to our athletic department.
So while I like the sentiment of criticizing the bullshit that the last AD rained down upon us, I am absolutely 100% inarguably a massive fan of the University of Michigan BRAND. Any alumnus who argues otherwise has something twisted.

Usually I go with Dunkin Donuts (brewed at home).
Also, in certain spots in the midwest (I know near Cincinnati for sure), White Castle actually sells coffee by the pound and the producer is actually a brand called Wallingford. Some of the best out there - you might be able to pick it up at your local Meijer...
