"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."

It was all because the teams were ranked 1 and 2. I don't believe that was originally a 3:30 kickoff.

That's fair. I agree that none of the top teams are elite in the conference.

Tim Dwight sighting. He was responsible for a good chunk of Iowa's points in the classic 97 game at the big house.

You're right. Well, that's embarrassing. Amazing how I can remember endless facts about games that took place 20 years ago but I couldn't remember a game from 5 weeks ago.

I'm still trying to figure out how good Iowa is. Their most notable win is against 8-3 Wisconsin, which they won 10-6. But that game was M00N like in it's ugliness with turnovers and missed points. Wisconsin basically handed that game to the Hawks by fumbling away a handoff at the 1 yard line late in the 4th quarter that would have given them the winning score.

Terry Glenn before this game: "We need to keep Michigan down here where dey belong...just like da rest of dem teams....and....kick der butt like we did everybody else."
Every year with the trash talk and every year not being able to back it up. The Cooper years were just epic.
There was also a great picture of Eddie George crying as the final seconds ticked off the clock that has, sadly, been removed from the Internet.

|2 days 13 hours ago||Yeah. He was the first||
Yeah. He was the first person who came to mind when I read the topic title.
He has really come into his own the second half of this season. And when he's not making some great catches lately, he's running great end arounds against Penn State or that 66 yard TD against Maryland. And that 96 yard kickoff return against Northwestern, well, that was pretty sweet.
Did not to expect to see this kind of stuff from him before the season started.
|2 days 14 hours ago||It had something to do with||
It had something to do with him being in a bar...maybe because he was underage? I forget the exact details. A fan posted the story online a couple years ago but I can't find it now.
Gillette was suspended for the Fiesta Bowl game against Nebraska as well. Fortunately, Pat Moons did a solid job of kicking for us in those two games.

I love how Musberger says nothing and just lets the cameras show the crowd going crazy. Keith Jackson would later do the exact same thing on Desmond and Charles' punt returns in 91 and 97. A moment like that speaks for itself.
This game is also particular in that, I believe it was the only time during the Schembechler years where the OSU game was a 3:30 kickoff. Looks like it was a bit overcast but it's pretty dark throughout the game.

I doubt they change the banner but I hope they do a moment of silence before the game like they did for Ufer before the Illinois game in 81.

Would have been 17-3. Now it's 10-10. Disgraceful job by the refs.

Also in the 1994 Notre Dame game, we attempted a chip shot field goal, ND blocked it, Che Foster caught the ball behind the LOS and ran forward for a first down. Biakabutuka ran it in for a TD 3 plays later. Keep in mind that this happened in South Bend....where the refs have a very long history of screwing Irish opponents over.

A side note: I know the schedule quirk with MSU and no more Notre Dame is largely to blame but I figured if there was one road game the Michigan Marching Band would travel to this year, this would be the one. But no.
Most college marching bands usually make two road trips per year. The MMB had none this year for the first time in over half a century. That is highly, HIGHLY disappointing.

When did the visitor section get moved to the upper deck end zone nose bleed seats? In 97, the players were able to celebrate and high five with the fans from the field. Can't do that anymore.
