"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

Count me in as a member of the Fire Borges Club. I was willing to give him a pass until this b.s. today. As another poster pointed out, the simple way to beat this defense, given M's craptacular o-line, was a quick passing game--short drops and passes to the flat with screens or crossing routes mixed in. When we tried that we scored a td. Great, but then what do we do? Back to running up the middle against a stacked box, and long developing routes which relied on our 200lb running back blocking a monster de--things our offense has proven it cannot do. And youth is NOT an excuse anymore for a line that god-awful after 9 games. And to say, again, "They didn't execute" is nonsense. You have to put your people in a position to succeed, not fail. And calling for long-developing routes, time and again, when you know the line can't block that long, and your rb can't block at all, is putting players in a position to fail. The final straw for me was the 2nd turnover--running twice in a row, when they haven't been able to run the ball all damn day. Fire him and start over.

Another Yankee fan here...Go Cards. As much as I hated the sox before this year, the hipster beards--and their dandyish obsession with them--have pushed it over the top.

As a Yankee fan, I'm relieved that people can finally see through all the the b.s. feel-good "red sox nation" propaganda. That bleacher dickbrain is the true face of the sox fan. And it is why Yankee fans loathe them. For this series...Go Tigers.

He only managed to win the Big East championship--and the BCS slot that went with it--after Miami (YTM), VaTech, and BC left the conference for the ACC. His WVU teams were firmly entrenched behind all three before then. I actualy went to WVU's game against BC in Morgantown the year before the Big 3 left for greener pastures. BC curb-stomped WVU with a Big Ten approach--pro-style, run-heavy offense, big rugged defense. I had no Michigan affiliation when he was hired (I'm now a grad--my first year was RR's last) and had no dog in the hunt, but I thought that hire was a huge mistake at the time.

I committed. I'm in my 40s--and Michigan isn't actually recruiting me. I just got caught up in the moment.

If they're going that route with their helmets, they should have a waggy tail and a stencil of a dog's anus on the back.

No cell phones. I even note this in the syllabus, in bold. I catch you playing with a phone I mark you absent which could effect a grade. Seeing a kid play with a phone in class bugs the crap out of me, but my classes are participatory and not lecture style. So I need my kids to be awake, plus, I am going to see that. And I mean, come on--if you're a college kid, you're prolly texting someone you saw ealier and will see again in twenty minutes. I think of this as my part in helping this generation learn to focus on one thing for more than 5 minutes.

Actually, given the distance between UM and Detroit, that final would be UGa vs. UM. Which further highlights the silliness of the Bing-bashing here.

Does anyone seriously think that all of Ohio suddenly "likes" Michigan or has switched allegiances to us since OSU crapped out?
