"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."

Voting with Incognito mode (or the equiviliant) will allow you to vote more then once. He's down by a LOT and needs all the votes he can get.

Only one thing's for certain with football recruiting and Harbaugh...

I can't see him getting caught from behind quite like Houma and Kerridge. So many possibilities with that kid!

It's a great city for a young professional. I've lived all over the US and am plenty happy staying in Atlanta for the forseeable future.
The woman are beautifull, there's tons of lakes within a couple hours drive to rent houses on for weekends, I can play golf basically year round, different areas of the city are completely unique from one another, resturants are the best of any city I've been in, there's ton of sporting events and concerts monthly.
The housing market is great and the cost of living is extremely low compared to other major cities I've lived. I was able to purchase a small condo in the middle of the city, in a fantastic area (avg house listing of $1.2 Mil) so there is no crime whatsoever near me.
huge mosquito problem - You've got us on that one. They suck.

Kids choose their college based on "ridiculous" factors all the time. What is important to one person could mean nothing to another.
While everything on this list would probably be less important than academics and cost to the average person, they all play a role in the overall package of a school. For kids that grow up in a world where "status symbols" are important, wearing the new Jordan's before they are released to the public could play a very big role. I mean, for athletes, the Nike/Jordan deal essentially dictates what clothes they will be wearing for the next 4 years.

|15 weeks 11 hours ago||Call to the parents...||
I really, really like the fact that Harbaugh made a call to the parents to talk it over with them. Seems like a smart move all around to make sure everybody involved (cause let's face it, these are still kids) is onboard.
|15 weeks 12 hours ago||As someone with multiple ACL surgeries...||
This is correct.
From a previous post of mine...
> I've (unfortunately) been through 2 ACL surgeries, so I have quite a bit of knowledge on the subject. The first ACL replacement was a cadaver allograft, while the most recent one being a patellar autograft.
My surgeon, a lead orthopedic surgeon for an NFL team, chose to use a cadaver allograft the first time due to an almost similar recovery time and research at the time suggesting they held up as well as a patellar or hamstring autografts. However, that was about 4 years ago and after the wave of cadaver allograft use, more and more research is showing that there is a significantly higher retear rate with the allograft over either of the autografts. Last reports I've seen say that the retear rate of ~4% for autografts and ~ a 4 to 5 times higher rate with the allograft.
My surgeon (the orthopeadic surgeon for an NFL team) says that pretty much unanimously across the board of NFL player's - patellar or hamstring autografts are used now. Patellar is a bit more common though as there are generally less side effects with the harvested tissue. It's really just a preference of the surgeon.

I'm not sure whether to be excited that AJ caught a 50-yard pass... or concerned that it was AJ who caught a 50-yard pass.

I can't think of another way to say this, but Manningham was just a silky smooth runner. Like he slid through coverages. I feel like Grant's tape is more of start, stop, precision type of player. Just my 2 cents.

I've seen a post on about the cover of ESPN mag, but no mention about this specific article. Prove me wrong.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||Getting Better (Good but not great)||
It's my understanding that we are continually getting better classes, but still not on the elite level.
Michigan has the name recognition in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic which is king for lacross - what we don't have is the historically good program at a varsity level. In time we'll get there.
