"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."

Kicking the FG wasn't real satisfying, but given that we were at the 10-yard line, I think we had to get what we could out of that possession.
|3 hours 47 min ago||Again I don't get it. Yes,||
Again I don't get it. Yes, some fans go overboard with the refusal to listen to dissenting arguments. But I'd much rather have them be proven right, because that means Michigan's doing well.
Why you would find joy in seeing people who are extremely pro-Harbaugh to be proven wrong is just weird. You really care that much about winning a dumb internet argument?

I would wager that OSU took Michigan a lot more seriously in game prep this season than in the past few years.

The only time they eat crow is when Michigan loses. You love that?

Also, we match up better with MSU's offense than OSU's.

He said afterward that it was not going to be a pass.

I don't know about Narduzzi, but Herman had no OSU ties before he came in 2012. His ties are really more in the South. I could see him waiting out the Texas job.

For a long time I thought his name was Limegrower. That would have been a cool name.
|5 hours 38 min ago||This actually happened in||
This actually happened in 1926 for some reason. Maybe the centennial of that we'll see it again.

That, and I have a hunch OSU didn't take us very seriously when we had Hoke.

Rudock. One "d".
|7 hours 24 min ago||I don't understand the||
I don't understand the question about the "hang-up" with the passing game. We passed for over 300 yards against a pretty tough pass defense.

Please tell me the Dilly Bar guy survived this shakeup.

So what is a Redblack, exactly?

That is awesome.
Having the goal posts in the front of the endzone seems potentially dangerous, though. I guess no one passes over the middle on the goal line?

I can't imagine they're still doing that after this season.
|19 hours 58 min ago||I think some of you are||
I think some of you are getting a little too emotional here. This isn't like Magic Johnson having to stop his career in his prime because he had HIV. Kobe is unquestionably an all-time great but this day was clearly coming. He's been a shell of his old self for a long time. Personally, I don't like seeing great players hang on way too long. I think it's good that he's wrapping it up, and he has this final season to receive accolades from everyone.

Mullen can do better. He could well have the Georgia or South Carolina jobs, or he could sit tight a couple years for PSU to come open, as seems likely.
|21 hours 37 min ago||I thought the crowd was into||
I thought the crowd was into it at the outset. I remember it being extremely loud when OSU took over deep in their own territory, prior to the infamous roughing-the-punter call. But the crowd was gradually worn down by the long, agonizing OSU drives.
|21 hours 40 min ago||We may have that top-notch QB||
We may have that top-notch QB next year, if O'Korn can play like he did in 2013 at Houston. As for the D, we should have excellent depth on the DL next year, with everyone coming back except (probably) Ojemudia. If we come into the game with a healthier, loaded DL, that will significantly mitigate any issues we might have at linebacker.
The last win in Columbus was in 2000. But it's also been awhile since we've taken a good team down there.
|21 hours 47 min ago||If ALL conference title games||
If ALL conference title games are eliminated, then everyone's in the same boat in that regard. The selection committee is there to sift through everything.
|21 hours 49 min ago||Next year should not be a||
Next year should not be a rebuilding year. We're going to have a ton of senior starters. It should be a really good team. 2017 is the year that might be more of a rebuilding season, unless our current recruiting class is ready for prime time by then (which will be their sophomore/redshirt frosh year).
|21 hours 53 min ago||I'd like to see all||
I'd like to see all conference title games eliminated. College football should be played on campuses, not in NFL domed stadiums. If two or three teams tie for the title, so what? Good for them. And especially now, when we have a two-round playoff, and probably eventually a three-round one, the NCAA may want to think about how long the season should be.
|21 hours 59 min ago||It's an easy mistake to make,||
It's an easy mistake to make, as the simplest way to get to 50 points is to convert one two-pointer. A lot of people have that part of the story wrong. (It's also not clear if he actually said "Because I couldn't go for 3," but it's more fun to assume he did.)
|22 hours 7 min ago||We probably would have||
We probably would have regained promotion after one season in the MAC. But that one season would have been really crappy, especially for the senior class.
Promotion/relegation sounds cool in theory until you realize that it could actually happen to your own team.

You're an odd duck, WD. Sometimes you're a traditionalist and sometimes you're arguing for things like this.
I could maybe get behind an eight-team playoff but that is it. Beyond that and you're asking fans to go to too many playoff games and watering down the regular season to ridiculous levels.
I do also think we should pause before asking collegiate players to play basically an NFL-length schedule. Yeah, the lower levels do it, but 1) I'm not sure that's a good thing either and 2) they aren't nearly as hard-hitting as this level. There aren't too many future NFL players in D-II and III.
|23 hours 57 min ago||Actually the 2-point attempt||
Actually the 2-point attempt in 1968 failed. They were up 44-14 and scored. Woody tried to make it 52-14.
|1 day 11 min ago||Or Minnesota. They played||
Or Minnesota. They played TCU out of conference and their B1G crossover opponents from the East were Michigan and OSU. Crappy luck of the draw, that. And then they had to replace their coach mid season.

But you have to acknowledge that 38-0 is a lot more convincing than 24-17.
