"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."

|6 days 40 min ago||Ever since my parents became||
Ever since my parents became empty nesters a few years ago, they've punted on the traditional Thanksgiving celebrations. So tomorrow morning, we'll all drive from kzoo to Chicago with some family friends for our new tradition, the delicious all you can eat Thanksgiving dinner from Mike Ditka's restaurant. We've been enough years in a row now that we don't even need to remind them to seat us near a TV with Lions game on. Then Friday we join the madhouse on Michigan Ave for Black Friday shopping. It's more fun than you'd think!

Before reading about how Frantz made the game-winner the next year, especially when talking about the pizza place that changed their marquee, my thoughts were: This guy must have been the inspiration for Ray Finkle/Lois Einhorn in Ace Ventura! I found myself sadistically hoping the story took that turn

So the B1G looks like it will be a big pillow fight this year... Except Staee, ugh

Is that again going to come courtesy of an intentional PSU safety after wasting ridiculous amounts of clock?

Why not another posbang!? I need at least 2 to express my excitement!

|21 weeks 5 days ago||Grand Haven beach||
I'll be camping on the beach in Grand Haven. And by camping I mean staying in my aunt's rather fancy camper. It's more small mobile cottage than tent, but you won't find me complaining. The weekend is sure to include plenty of the 4 B's: beach, boats, BBQ, and beers.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Warning: Cool story bro below||
I had the opportunity to attend the Big Brothers Big Sisters event last night that Coach Carr was at. Before dinner, I had the chance to introduce myself and chat with him for a few minutes. I had planned on quickly mentioning that I'm in my 8th year at UM (undergrad + PhD will do that to you) before talking football and memories of the old days. Instead Coach steered the conversation toward the state of academia in the state and country. We each had our 2 cents to share about it and ended up talking about that for the entire time, before I ended by mentioning that my fandom began when attending my first game, 1997 vs. Iowa, a comeback win that he remembered as "a pivotal game" that season.
And no, I didn't ask for a selfie with him.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||More importantly||
More importantly, will he grow a couple inches so that we can continue our streak of having a "6-6 soph-o-more" to be announced during player intros? It's a tradition that shouldn't be allowed to fade.

Wouldn't it be M00B? Even more embarrassing, glad it's no more

Don't the refs know they're giving the makeup call to the wrong team from Michigan? And 2 years too late
|37 weeks 3 days ago||The Spike assist||
Bullets on yesterday's game and no mention (or gif) of the Spike behind-the-head assist!? I mean it was only one play but it was one I could watch/talk about until at least next season when he does something like it again.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||I understand the ESPN hate,||
I understand the ESPN hate, their commentary, bias, etc. is terrible. But ESPN is in another league when it comes to streaming and watching on mobile. It is unbelievably annoying that NBC sports live extra doesn't have native chromecast built-in yet (BTN2go desperately needs this too). IMO, I'd prefer ESPN until the other broadcasters can match watchESPN in capability/reliability.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Bluster||
I think Brian mentioned this in UV yesterday. This consideration seems like purely bluster to try to put pressure on the pro leagues, namely the NBA, to change up their one-and-done rules which the NCAA and especially the big ten hate. If freshman are ineligible, they can't very well go pro after one year in college unless they were good enough coming out of hs in which case there's no way they'd waste a year not playing competitively before becoming eligible for the draft.

Or how about him becoming a leader on the team and earning the title of "Captain Falcon". At RB, you could even see a Falcon Punch into the endzone

Not the program, just this year's team. Doesn't change the frustration but it's not exactly doom and gloom for the foreseeable future

It's going to be tougher to pull out a win? The game went to OT. Not sure how it could be tougher, unless you're already conceding the loss in AA

Getting out of the cold this weekend, off to sunny South Florida. Going to find myself somewhere on the water Sunday to cheer on Wolverines past and present. Go Blue! Go Pats!
|43 weeks 6 days ago||I like this idea||
This would hopefully ensure Wilson never has to play 5, and Donnal would only get sparing minutes there with most of them coming at the 4. It would certainly help the defense and on offense the key would be getting consistent shooting from them, which is certainly plausible. It also moves Dawkins/Irvin to 3 exclusively, another big plus.
That being said, Coach B said we'd see this sort of two-big lineup when we had Morgan/McGary/Horford but that never materialzed. Still think it'd be much more likely in this case as Donnal and especially Wilson are so much more suited for the 4, even in Beilein's system.

If there's consensus that he's not in the lottery that significantly gets my hopes up that he'd return for what could be a damn good year next year. Am I wrong to think him falling out of the lottery is a pretty big deal? Especially when it wouldn't seem to be hard for him to work his way back in during his senior season.

But now the story is being picked up by all the local news here in AA-detroit area. Have seen it on local 4 and fox 2.

I remember reading from a thread a couple days ago that early enrollment, for Rosen specifically, already happened. It shouldn't matter anyway though, doesn't a head coaching change cause an easing of transfer rules?

Taking my talents and good luck to the cesspit of East Lansing tomorrow! If the team wants to use either of those thing coach hoke feel free to give me a call.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||No||
As fans, we can speak out against the coach and AD, but we absolutely can not bash players. Some of those in the fanbase choose to do so but they are idiotic and wrong.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Right||
Their scouting (or lack thereof) of Utah's D seemed contrary to what I've read here. No mention of being undersized, inexperienced, position switch starters or anything. To be expected for a game that only becomes notable in espn's eyes if we lose

I thought they were especially harsh in their longer than expected segment they did on Michigan. Seriously guys, it's not that bad!
