Oops - I meant to type Nevada, not Illinois.

Apparently I'm still stuck wondering if a 10 year old will help Illinois win more than 6 games next year.

Cure the turnovers that plagued them in the postseason.

Too many dropped/mishandled passes/bad passes that caused them pointless possessions and often led to GSW fast break points.

The Cavs had 20 turnovers in game 1. It set the tone for the series, I think.

The Cavs have plenty of firepower, and showed in game 4 that they can win, but they need to play error free to do so.

I get this, Hov. I'm not necessarily trying to beat a dead horse.

But, it's interesting the parallels that can be drawn between the 2: both highly talented, big arm, poor accuracy guys with questionable in-game decision-making skills.

Could also be bipolar (manic/depressive), PTSD, extreme depression, schizophrenia, etc.  HIPAA prevents us from really knowing what he was treated for.

Holy Cow! Ramzy is on fire today. This Skully was very entertaining. I'll bet even DJ would say it was "Marionaire-like" due to it's ruthless nature.

First, Ramzy playfully gives OH-10 a comeuppance, then he delivers a savage, fact-based beatdown to the O-Zone's Ben van Ooyen for riding Andrew and Andrew's coattails. It will be interesting to see the Twitter fallout from this article.

I also feel a little bad for tomorrow's Skully writer. This is a tough act to follow.

Crimes and violations committed by players (and staff!) is always a hazard of any HC job nowadays. How he handles them will define whether he stays or goes. A lot will depend on the tolerance level of the AD, Univ. Pres., and BoT.

Wonder if something is possibly going on with his health ... he's not even 60 yet. Seems a little young to be stepping away from things.

Yep, one image only. Looks like the original links are dead.

Not sure I agree with you on this one. Dantonio has bought himself enough good will in that school to weather at least another year with a mediocre 7-6 record, a la Kirk Ferentz in Iowa.

If Dantonio leaves, they won't be able to replace him easily. East Lansing isn't exactly in the middle of fertile recruiting grounds, and there isn't much to the town to serve as a draw for potential coaching hires. Plus, they are in the same B1G division as Meyer, Hairball, and Franklin. Not exactly a recipe for a coach to come in and have immediate success.

Anyone else getting a 404 file not found error? Maybe it's just my work connection ...

Thanks for the history and explanation! Makes a lot more sense now, even 50 years later ...
