"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."

|3 years 51 weeks ago||Lions put themselves||
In these situations where they must be perfect to come back. There is no margin for error, and they usually end up with turnover to a ball hawking safety.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Defense will||
try to get it back. Brees is running a passing clinic, this won't end well.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||OMG..||
He he he he DROPPED IT, no no oh no..
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Or, "oh look,||
the defenders ran into each other! Wow, was he open or what!!" lol, same old Lions. Playoffs??...Playoffs??... Insert famous rant.
|3 years 51 weeks ago||I like||
hearing "He's wiiiiiddddeee open, no one around him," or "he's in end zone untouched," two frequent playcalls against Lion defenses..
|3 years 51 weeks ago||they are getting||
worse as the season progresses. Are the other d coordinators that much better, or are injuries taking their toll? Maybe both?
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Addressing needs with two||
Addressing needs with two starters through the draft would be great, and if those positions were locked down for 5-7 years that would be perfect.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Lions draft going Fairley||
Lions draft going Fairley well so far..
|4 years 31 weeks ago||I also||
Wonder why Robert Quinn fell so far and JJ Watt rose so much? And how the hell can teams be given an immediate draft grade? We should be grading the draft from 2008 or 2009 right now, not a pick made 13 seconds ago. If your pick is the best guy, but gets hurt in a moped accident, that was unfortunately not a good pick.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Differences between Mayhew and Millen??||
Wow, how much better Detroit would have been with Mayhew at the helm instead of Millen. Any coach having the luxury (so far) of a talent evaluator like Mayhew has to have life easier.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||It seems like these drafts go||
It seems like these drafts go more or less as predicted for about the first 15-20 picks, then it turns into something different.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Lots of good DE's in this||
Lots of good DE's in this draft. I bet we still see one taken at some point.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Detroit could be looking at||
Detroit could be looking at Bowers in the 2nd round. Should they take him?
|4 years 31 weeks ago||I like Carimi better than||
I like Carimi better than Castanzo, either way you get a big tough road grader.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||That is very sad. I am||
That is very sad. I am thankful when I get depressed listening to the "news" , that I have my sports outlet, as well as the activities I like to do to sometimes put distance between myself and whatever the dailey downer may be.
Some people are not "hobby" or "sports" types, and I wonder if that affects their ability to cope with the constant barrage life throws at us.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||OT Threads||
In response to Wolverine's reponse about obscure threads, I race motocross here in Michigan (my avatar is a pic. of me landing a 85' tabletop in Midland at Polka Dots) and it is cool to see other motorsports fans talking racing. This time of year, action sports heat up and I am outside until its too cold or I get hurt riding (usually injured before cold weather). So by the fall, I'm watching Michigan football or getting my hands wet in a fishtank, or in the really odd year, still riding MX in the fall.
That said, Formula 1 racing is unbelievably cool. I am always surprised when Ferrari is bettered by a Renault or some other team that I didn't think could pull it off. I love helmet cams, or other random camera placement that shows two cars battling at speed to show how hard these guys race.

Best fight song in world starts again!!
|4 years 33 weeks ago||See!!||
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Calm down, we will make our||
Calm down, we will make our adjustments and start putting the puck on target. Once we do that, we will be fine.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||Shoot, I thought it referred||
Shoot, I thought it referred to fans like the crumulent pos that gave LC the bouble bird last night, or most of the denizens of Columbus or East Lansing.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||I believe there's only one||
I believe there's only one way for Hunny to celebrate this one. Hopefully with a National Championship ring as his present!
|4 years 33 weeks ago||OCB is the land of the||
OCB is the land of the hardcore trenchermen..
|4 years 34 weeks ago||As much as I hate losing,||
As much as I hate losing, that guy giving the fingers to a college kid who just scored to go to the national championship is beyond classless. If I ever saw a Michigan fan do that to a kid, it would take all my reserve not to break his jaw. That boorish performance will now be passed on down through his generations. Kids see that crap. Swell. Nice job. Well played. Hope your day gig at the cement quarry is a little better tomorrow. Idiot.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||No, its a numbers game, 2 d||
No, its a numbers game, 2 d and 1 wing back, will prevent odd man rushes. It does clog up the neutral zone and take away passing lanes. Red will mix it up with numbers and personnel, but he's going the anaconda route, squeezing the life and will out of ND. Doesn't always work though.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Good things happen when we||
Good things happen when we shoot the puck at the net...C'mon Meeechigan make Melrose feel he knows nothing aboot hockey, send his ass back to watch from the safety of his chesterfield!
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Its a hard strategy for the||
Its a hard strategy for the heart, but its been effective so far. They score 1 goal, it might be hard to get going offensively again..
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Since we've been plagued with||
Since we've been plagued with bad announcers tonight, it made think of one of the best ever hockey announcers, that guy from Pittsburgh who used to call games in the mid 80's-90's. He was awesome to listen to when he would describe Mario scoring on one of his many historically sweet goals. Not a huge Lemieux fan, but I respect the skill set.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||Some more 1-1-3 will get keep||
Some more 1-1-3 will get keep a forechecker and a wall in front of Hunny the rest of the way. Then, one more quick turnover in the neutral zone could ice it for us..
|4 years 34 weeks ago||If there were any justice,||
If there were any justice, this is where Don Cherry would come on and say "Kids this is how you play goalie. Watch little Hunwyck show the way!"
|4 years 38 weeks ago||I just want to call Valenti||
I just want to call Valenti and gloat. That stupid know it all attitude grinds my gears. I can't help but think if there is such thing as kharma, I will find myself lining him up like a crochet ball in a pick up hockey game. Not sure how this ties in to the above, other than saying this feels good to watch. Game on..
