"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."

I used to collect golf balls in the woods behind Radrick. I grew up on Dixboro so those woods were off the back of our property as well. Glad we never ran into each other while you were bow hunting! :-)

Keep fighting the good fight.

I'm guessing this was accidentally posted while it was still being worked on. It's not on the front page yet, either.

I'll be at Tommy Nevin's in Naperville for the basketball game on Tuesday. It's not a Michigan bar but owned and managed by a Rivals/Fort regular. I'll have a group there Tuesday if you want to join us.
Also, I work in Oak Brook so would join any Michigan fans in that area for weekday games too.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||Gotta be JV||
The only confidence I have in a win tonight would be with JV. The bats are cold right now and the pen is frightening to say the least.

Regarding #1000SSS, it looks like the address of the Athletic Department (and/or ticket office) is 1000 South State Street.

My last name is Rash. I joked about naming my daughter Fannie and if we have a son, Richard.

I've been thinking about this for a while. I understand that on an individual basis, whether or not the ball bounces to me and I recover it is extremely random. But if a given team is constantly flowing to the ball, gang-tackling, what-have-you on defense, then it would seem that that team would be more likely to capitalize on fumble recover opportunities. Granted, 14 of 16 still seems really high, but I don't think it's unreasonable to say that a team's play has *some* ability to affect its fumble recovery success rate.
If team A is coached to have its defensive linemen chase the ball on every play and team B is lackadaisical or lazy about such plays, I would absolutely expect team A to recover more opportunities.

In case anyone else is wondering, like I was:
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Thanks||
I was unaware of the source feed so I'll switch to that.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||Agreed||
I enjoyed hearing about why the Sox shouldn't have covered both bases on the hard shot past Morel. Interesting stuff, makes perfect sense, and probably not something that I would have thought of otherwise.

|4 years 12 weeks ago||Well...||
If you're going to count road revenue from the opponent, then you'd have to include revenue given them for their trip here, which he does not. I don't know how a home-and-home money-sharing deal is usually arranged, but maybe we're assuming a "you keep yours and I'll keep mine" type of deal.

He really crushed that ball.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Wow||
The Mariners and Tribe played a day-night doubleheader yesterday and followed it up with a day game today? That's a lot of baseball.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Also...||
Also, the stadium is in a terrible location and not very convenient to get to.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Avila||
Great work from Avila after going down 0-2.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Agreed||
I will take this from Penny any day. Seems to have settled down after a shaky start.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||Yep||
That was big. Gotta figure out how to get some runs now.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||White Sox are off tonight...||
So assuming we hang on, both Cleveland and the Sox will be 5.5 games back.
EDIT: And there it is. Rod just misspoke, but the Tigers are up 5.5 games on both teams.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Whoops...||
I guess you probably knew this already - I didn't realize that Brian had mentioned this in his "MGoJob Available" post.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||Not sure about Tom||
Tim is taking over for Josh Helmholdt at Rivals.

Well, you're half right.
