"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."

Are these the latest rankings?
If so, it looks like they're #6 in the B1G and ahead of Rice and USC.

"Four letter word just to get me along
Holding back, everyday the same
Listen to me, oh no
They call me 'hell'
They call me 'quiet'
That's not my name"
That's not their name either. But it was amusing.
Yesterday, we were hoisted by our own petard.
There's dumb and there's dumber.

I was a Jim Harbaugh advocate when RichRod was hired but Michigan turned a deaf ear and went with the flavor of the month. Now look at Harbaugh. My wife met RichRod at the UM women's football camp prior to his first season and said "he's John Cooper". And she was right. So now the RichRod dismissal is a fair accompli (three years and a cloud of dust") but what does Michigan do now if Harbaugh says "no"?
So why would Miles leave now? Miles has to see that the rise of Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas (and Mississippi State!?) in the SEC West will make his life much more difficult in the years ahead. He has already been to summit at LSU but their fans are already asking "what have you done for me lately?". On the other had, he can be the Michigan savior and compete in a less intense environment within the Big Ten's Legends division (against his former defensive coordinator Bo Pelini).
In my view, Dave Brandon has choreographed this well. If you don't know where you're going, stay where you are. But he moved. Based on what happened last time, the Les Miles hire will not leak prior to LSU's game against Texas A&M . And Brandon will not be incommunicado on a yacht in the near term. So I would expect an announcement sometime after LSU's Bowl game so that Michigan doesn't have replay of the last hiring fiasco.
I will be shocked if Les Miles is not the next Michigan coach.

So I'd like to know where we're sitting each game so I can decide which games to go to. I have two boys (nine and 15) who play football on different weekend days. No evil intent.
|6 years 30 weeks ago||Just Received Season Ticket Application. A Question...||
About 10 years ago, I paid a nominal fee and was placed on the season ticket waiting list. I never heard back and never really expected to be able to take advantage of the opportunity. But since my kids were very young at the time, I thought that I might get a shot when they were older. But I knew that it was a long shot.
Well, I received a mailing yesterday from the ticket office offering me the opportunity to buy up to four season tickets but only have about 10 days to make my decision. I was stunned.
My only thought is that if the Athletic Department is offering ME tickets, that UM season ticket sales must have plummeted due to 1) U.S. economy 2) drop-off in auto industry support 2) the recent lack of success on the field.
Anybody hearing anything about season ticket sales?
