"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."

Just announced he would not return and is graduating. Would definitely fill the shot-blocking need discussed this week.
|1 year 52 weeks ago||Much Appreciation and Understanding||
I discovered this blog more than 5 years ago and it has become a standard part of my day. What Brian and the rest have developed and delivered is unique among any blogs, sports or otherwise, that I have encountered. Their efforts are very much admired and appreciated.
Brian's recent frustration is understandable. This season has altered the blog significantly. The overwhelming amount of commentors who choose to share their opinion on any and everything has cluttered the site and made it utterly depressing and nearly pointless to read.
In the past, there was an unspoken understanding that any posts and comments should add value to the discussion - either with information or well thought opinion. Now, it's just off-the-top, emotion-fueled drivel, and very angry, depressing drivel at that.
As you age, you begin to understand the long-view of situations in life, and learn to accept the immediate moments and not overreact. There are far too many posters who are interested in being heard and sharing their immediate emotion in every moment.
In the past MGoBlog - this immediacy only happened during the Live Blog, not in the forums. Now, all forums are mini-live blogs - repeditive, emotional, caught in the moment with no thought or perspective.
Change needs to happen. Only Brian can decide what it will be. Charge us. I will gladly pay. Reintroduce the point system. I will gladly participate. Whatever it takes to allow the valuable part of this blog to return to its higher position. I look forward.
Go Brian and Go Blue.

FGCU has been my adopted #2 for five years now. So much so, that my family and I travelled on the team charter to and from Philadelphia last weekend.
Their coach told me before the pairings were announced that he hoped to play Georgetwon in Philly, because it could become a home game for FGCU if they stayed close.
In seven days, this group of kids and their confident coach have captured the nation's attention. Now, I have to try to figure out how to raise a million dollars to keep him here. All suggestions welcome.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I'll be flying||
with Florida Gulf Coast to Philly tomorrow for their game with Georgetown. Excited to tell the A.D. and President that once we start the football program the B1G is ready to welcome them with open arms.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Love Denard but||
AC was a three-time All American and generally considered one of (if not the) best college Wrs of the 80's.
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Correct you are||
Dallas Crawford, Watkins teammate, was a near lock to head here and that opened up an opportunity for us to get Sammy, but it was never really more than a passing fancy.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Well said, Outsider||
I think we all have to take the larger view. Our lines performed much better than we assumed, which gives reason for confidence heading into the B1G. Denard will come back from this. We'll be fine.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||I'm feeling a 3-1 win||
not ready to shut down the WC hopes just yet.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||As someone who was fortunate enough to know Cliff Keen||
and understand what he did for the university, it saddens me to see his tribute go away. I hope the university finds another way to continue to honor a man who did so much for so long for Michigan.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Thankfully missed watching the game||
due to son's Pop Warner game.
Just saw the highlights.
We looked great. I'm going to pretend the other 150 plays looked the same.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||The first of 15 weeks||
of agonizing over who to start on my pretend teams. Yay!
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Made my contribution||
Shared the effort on my social feeds. Small contributions by many people can make big changes.
Proud of you, Tay!

In the Atlanta airport. Lube for a late night flight.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Just finished an agency briefing for Harley-Davidson||
Good news - they loved it.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||How can you be both an Eagles||
and Redskins fan? Is that you, Donovan?
|3 years 32 weeks ago||This is just way too familiar||
Control then give up the cheapies.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||How ridiculous is Bertuzzi?||
I'd say I was amazed but I've seen it to much. Plus perfect timing. Left time to finish UTL on BTN.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||I'm amazed how my knee-jerk dislike for Bama||
Lessens every time Roll Tide contributes to this blog. Please don't let a centered, well-rounded and reasonable Buckeye fan appear here. I can't bear the thought.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Obviously you haven't watched Bizarre Foods||
And realized that Andrew Zimmer loves to dress up on Buckeye weekends.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||After last night, it's obvious||
That no one in The Dayton area has been trained to perform the Heimlich Maneuver.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Hey, my adopted school||
FGCU lost twice all year - beat Michigan State and a few other majors - and got a 12 seed.
Life ain't fair and neither is NCAA seeding.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||forgot that the||
has to be included at all times
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Why does their have to be so much math in college hockey?||
It makes me regret my English degree more and more.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Actually Burke reminds me more of Isiah Thomas as a||
college player except Isiah was surrounded by monster talent as a freshman and sophomore at IU, something Trey will get to experience next year. Very similar penetration and control of the floor.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||This sets the stage for at least two this weekend||
possibly more. Couple that with two BTT wins over Ohio and Sparty and another W over ND would make for an excellent continuation on the "greatest weekend" trend, wouldn't it?
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I think this move turns the Rams||
into a very good team for the next few years. Love RG3 but Snyder and the Skins are no place to start a career
|3 years 37 weeks ago||I'd be perfectly happy with two wins||
and a 2 seed. Heck, I'd be happy if they left us a 3 as long as we get the two wins. #BeatOhio

At a youth flag football game on a 75 degree Florida winter night. Life's good.

To match the internal bitterness I'm feeling right now.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Noooooo!||
Never saw it.
