"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 may be a lonely voice, but I was psyched when they reintroduced FTC. Say what you will, I think that shit is delish.

When you're at the top, everyone's painted a target on your back. Like how playing Michigan is (getting back to being) every CFB team's Super Bowl.

I think we can aspire to greater things than the lowest-common-denominator of a homophobic joke.

Much better than wondering (and knowing) why no one is poaching your coordinators.

I agree with you 100%, but I'll argue that no amount of "respect" from the advanced stats will compensate for the disrespect MSU has shown UM by whooping us for most of the last decade.
These guys will be hungry to win. They smell blood, and a chance to exact some retribution on a team that became a perennial tormentor.

I won't be there this year, but hopefully soon! Looking forward to repping the Fossils in 2016!

Does anyone have access to the graphic they showed after the 49s game that showed win% with Tomsula at 1.000 over Harbaugh? I feel like that should be Exhibit A in the small sample size and crazy over-optimism case.

I think it's a standard Wednesday feature these days.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||It's great...||
...to watch Michigan play hard on both sides of the ball.
...to cheer Amara Darboh on a special day for him.
...to witness defensive dominance unmatched since Clausen 4 Heisman in '07.
...to improve week-to-week.
...to be a Michigan Wolverine!

We might get to hear another version from Iowa in the not-too-distant future, only at an even higher level. There's been a lot of concern among Hawkeye faithful about the new president J. Bruce Herrald. Might be a lot of complaining over nothing, but the initial signs are a little ominous (apologies if this made the board before):

I'm sure other examples exist, but this is one of my favorite hockey stories. A comparable situation unfolded in game two the 1928 Stanley Cup Finals, when the NY Rangers found themselves w/o a goalie after an injury. Montreal's coach wouldn't let them borrow a goalie from the audience or the minors, and so NY coach Lester Patrick played goal for a 2-1 overtime win.
The article talks about how intensely the D played in front of their coach, I have to imagine the O-line would be inspired to really take it to the opposing D-line.

I worked with Jay. It's interesting that he's getting all this acclaim, and I look forward to reading about him in Endzone. I'm curious if the man of the tale lines up with the guy I knew.

But would Brady walk to Champaign? Could he snake oil Borges from the World's Greatest* Coaching Staff?

I'd laugh and say "good timing", but really, any time is good timing for this guy. Illinois' desert wanderings continue.

Love the enthusiasm, but I sure hope not. I like the idea of a polished 5th-year Gentry who has eligibility left as opposed to a beastly but rough frosh QB. But what do I know? The coaching staff will do what they do. I just hope they can preserve the redshirt in this case.

Brian's mention of the Gerry DiNardo article reminded me of this other article I read about the Maple Leafs and Phil Kessel. If you're into hockey, this article is not about M football at all, yet it might also be about M football, as least when it scomes to trying to recreate an imaginary identity the last few years.

Loved the Indiana section. When I saw the cigar picture and accompanying text, I snorted in my quiet classroom where students were working on an assessment.

Just echoing everyone else, but this is my favorite diary and I love that getting to read it means we're getting closer to real live foobaw. Even during last year's nightmare, this column was a welcome opportunity to laugh at ourselves and the absurdity of the universe, and hopefully this season we'll be able to leave that all behind.

Tuck that ball when you scamper Brandon! Looks great though. I'm all for having a fist full of high quality lottery tickets at QB.

Nothing that hasn't been said before, but pointless yelling and manufactured drama? ESPN and WWE are a match made in heaven. nothing could lower my opinion of the WWL at this point, and i tuned out of everything except live sports long ago.
