"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."

For what it's worth he was on the sideline in 1996 as MIchigan DC. The defense was awesome (Woodson, Glen Steele, Sword, et al.) and as a senior, I had the pleasure of sitting on the 30-yard line near the Michigan defensive bench area. We loved watching Mattison's passion and enthusiasm while coaching and encouraging the group after they came off the field from yet-another defensive stop. Definitely one of the highlights of my 4, 8-4 seasons (1993-1996).

I also attended the Pres. Coleman reception at the Liberty Hotel in Boston on Wednesday night, and as others have posted, she was very impressive. It was also great to mingle with some other MGoBlog users who share such a passion for Michigan football!
The posting of Michigantrumpet82 was dead-on, but I wanted to add a few more impressions that I picked up from her. On expansion and revenue sharing, my understanding of her comments was that not only do current Big Ten members insist on keeping equal revenue sharing, but they wouldn't accept any short term reduction in revenue from the Big Ten Channel, etc., when bringing in the five new members.
She said self-imposed sanctions would be announced on or by May 24th but did not elaborate more.

I believe the three early Big Ten losses in 2004 coincided with Zwick starting at QB.
