Thanks for the catch. I last looked at the site with 16 in my head (their ranking from last week).
Ole Miss will host Georgia on Saturday. Georgia, a team with zero AP votes and close call wins over Nicholls(!) and Missouri, might actually improve its ranking on Sunday.
OTHER PECULIAR OBSERVATIONS
The AP Poll says hello to North Dakota State after its win at Iowa. The Bison have 74 points in the AP Poll, which nominally makes it the AP No. 28 team. It has 74 more points than Georgia. If you know any Georgia die-hards, bring that to their attention and see how they react.
Georgia is ranked number
1612 in the AP Poll and has 726 points.
When they beat TTUN nine years ago, they were an FCS team. Now they are FBS.
Are we sure that is the same spacesuit he wore on Apollo 11? Because the Smithsonian Institute is currently restoring his spacesuit. I'm assuming the one at the airport is just a replica.
Three absolute locks (Bosa, Elliott, Decker), two highly likely (Apple and Lee), two at 50/50 (Thomas and Bell), and one with an outside chance (Miller).
This is great.
(Also, unrelated, I no longer live in Illinois. Anyway to change my user name without creating a new account?)
Illinois needed a splash hire with name recognition. I think they got it with Lovie Smith. Whether it will work out is a whole other story.
This version of Bane was so much better.
Simple answer: they don't work and can actually impede training.

If only he wouldn't train with one of those stupid masks.
Just curious, who is the main practice coach for the heavier weight classes? Is it Coach Ryan but he's also a smaller guy? I know J Jaggers, Lou Rosselli, and now Logan Stieber will all work with the lighter weight classes.
HWT #2 Kyle Snyder (OSU) major decision over #17 Colin Jensen (NEB), 20-9 21 17
Is Kyle Snyder already the #2 ranked wrestler at Heavyweight? Does Intermat not think the lack of size will be an issue?
I'm only three miles away, but I didn't go. That damn thesis that I'm writing has to come first.
So I guess Eli Apple has made his decision to leave. Unfortunate for the team next year, but good luck to him in the pros.
Our chances of repeating have gotten a significant boost. It'll be interesting to watch him wrestle some the larger heavyweights, who could easily have 50+ lbs on him.
I didn't know Dabo was a ginger.
Florida just has a defense, nothing else. I think they would also lose to Navy, especially if it were just one week to prepare.
Note to people getting tickets. It really doesn't matter where your tickets are. I'm expecting with the cold that not many Illinois people will show up, so there will be plenty of room to move around and put your feet up with ease. At least that was the case two years ago.
I expect the student section to resemble this again:
I was at the game two years ago. It was probably about half Ohio State fans.
It pays to be a student at Illinois. Only $12 for student tickets.
