"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."

No, but thanks for your contribution
|2 days 8 hours ago||A lot of people complain||
A lot of people complain about and make fun of Musburger, and often with good reason, but what a refreshing difference between this and a lot of the clowns we get calling games now. He did a great job of letting that moment breath without a lot of pointless chatter.

What comments did he make about us? I missed it.

This is probably as good as we could hope for - anything but Spielman at this point. I think he's okay overall but not for this game.

Get creative and make your own. Get a good train set and customize it. Much more satisfying in the end, plus then you can any train set you want.
|3 days 8 hours ago||This article, though||
This article, though attempting to come off as objective, has a heavy pro-Ohio slant. Another way to look at it is Michigan is recruiting on a par with OSU now overall without Ohio - imagine where they'll be once they start there.
Also, is the writer aware of the whole story surrounding Weber's recruitment? Not sure Meyer has quite the established pipeline at Cass Tech this writer seems to think he does

I watch this channel all the time - great music - best on TV IMO

It's amazing how true that is. Every big play has you waiting for the flag. One strategy PSU tried, and it paid off in at least one case, was to just heave it up and hope for a flag. That's where the ref's experience (assuming some reasonable training) has to come into play for the benefit of the game. They failed miserably.
On the kick returns, why so much focus on meaningless holds so far from the action as to be irrelevant?
|5 days 20 hours ago||On the subject of penalties||
On the subject of penalties there was one really hilarious commentary by Huard today. On the Henry holding call he actually rationalized it by saying that, by occupying two blockers (who were in fact double teaming him), Henry prevented one of those blockers from blocking the guy who sacked the QB. For a while after that I couldn't help but keep thinking...wft is this guy doing calling this game? Can't we just get some professional broadcasters?

The most baffling to me was why Huard was so sure the holding call on Henry was legit. Would have liked to see some more replays to back that up.
|6 days 3 hours ago||I still haven't seen the||
I still haven't seen the holding on Henry - that was strange. They showed one quick replay and Huard oddly said it was obvious. Okay.
After that the most egregious to me were the PI on Lewis where the receiver actually pushed off, and the "low" block on Chessen that wasn't even low.
The only one where I felt we may have gotten a break was the non-call on Henry for driving Hackenberg to the turf - held my breath a little there.
PSU got handed a lot of cheap breaks in this game and still couldn't do anything.
|6 days 3 hours ago||I haven't really seen||
I haven't really seen Franklin all that much, other then the last few Michigan games. But damn he's not hard to outcoach. I don't think I've ever felt such gratitude toward an opposing coach.

royally screwed on that one...geez
|1 week 1 day ago||Possibly true but my initial||
Possibly true but my initial reaction was I was glad they scored the TD. Especially with long snapping issues it seemed like a FG would be far from certain anywhere and it would be better to have the extra minute, and timeouts, to score a TD

Every team is beat up a little at this point
No one is overlooking PSU.
Their O-Line is shaky and that's bad news for them - they won't be able to pressure us with a spread like Indiana.
It will be far from easy but I think we show up big this week.

No different from NJ at that time of year - they won't care

Maybe I'm hanging out in the wrong places but I haven't heard anyone say that.

BTN will show it on their 60 minute version - those are fun to watch - they don't just do it for BTN games.
|1 week 5 days ago||I prefer it around the 13.||
I prefer it around the 13. Gives plenty of room to get another first down and potentially run 8 plays if needed. Field compression is a major factor. The closer to the goal line you get the less room you have to run the entire offense.

Gotta love the Michigan faithful - he's leading as of now. Good post - thanks

Actually seems kind of logical...they need some kind of jump start...having said that he'll probably get the job and tank
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yes it's completely||
Yes it's completely legitimate to get a paying job after college. Using connections and relationships is also standard practice. There's lots of things to not like about OSU but this isn't one of them.

So you don't care if their best player plays. Okay. But at this point it's all about winning every game and it matters if he plays. Style points are for losers. Just win the game.
