  • SPORTS MOMENT: Broadcasting the 2008 Illinois vs. Ohio State game from Memorial Stadium (Illinois). When Beanie Wells jumped over the defender, I jumped up and screamed, which was the most unprofessional thing to do in the press box. All the Illinois media stared me down for a while, but how could you not get excited for that?

The interest and commitment to the program is definitely the same, however, the Urban Meyer era of football is much more exciting to watch on Saturdays.

The spread offense we put on the field is so enjoyable to watch vs. Tressel's power offense. We go for it on 4th and short, we go deep, we run trick plays, we have athletes at every spot. We all have to admit, as much as we all loved Tress, a significant portion of our games were so frustrating to watch. Big games were the worst - playing USC at home, we got a 3 point lead, ran the ball the entire second half. I truly believe that with Urban at coach, we would have won that game by double digits. We punted on 4th and short from their 35 yard line. It is truly the risks that Urban takes every game that create such a draw to watch.

Too much focus on all the negatives of this game from OSU writers. 

Navy is a good team and will likely win 8-10 games with a win over ND. It's tough to prepare for that offense and while our O-line was below par, we moved the ball fairly easily when we called the right plays. Focusing on the positives, Jalin and Dontre can make up for Braxton's athleticsm and every team will have to respect both sides of the field while we are on offense. 

I'm confident we will see our D-line dominate against a more traditional offense in VT. 

JT was impressive outside of his one blatant mistake. He looks comfortable in the game and never really got frazzled like many young QBs. He can only get better with confidence.

Definitely the best post that I look forward to each week. Thanks guys. 

 

Any way you could do this for basketball too? Gifs for the few biggest basketball plays of the night would be epic.

Great news! This guy is awesome.

Sometimes you watch a Youtube of a recruit and you think, "okay, he looks the same as all other high major players" but Mitchell's are above and beyond.

Looking forward to continuing success in BuckBK.

What do you expect? I know this is one fan, but what % of the fanbase would agree with this guy?

If he knew how to read, he'd see that Hitler had to kill himself as allied forces advanced to his eventual defeat.

Foreshadowing the future for 'Bama?

Allies (or the cyanide capsule Hitler used to cowardly commit suicide) = Ohio State?

Hoke: I just had that new Indian spot on campus.

Dantonio: And..?

Hoke: Just crushed Izzo's private toilet in his office. Thing's built for midgets.

Dantonio: Oh, food's that bad?

Hoke: No, I sat on the toilet, it came off the wall and was crushed into pieces.

Hoke: Sigh

Dantonio: What's wrong, Brady?

Hoke: Denard - ESPN already told me that they're paying him to sit in the student section at every Michigan home game, so they can show him during every big play this football season.

Dantonio: That guy has gotta get a job. Why don't they just pan over the student section?

Hoke: Have you seen our students?....yeesh.

Worley reminds me of Jermale Hines.

He'll definitely bulk up and if he plays star, they'll have him at about 205-210 by the time he's seeing the field (he's around 190-195 currently).

Is it safe to move Burrows to safety? I know the staff will give him a chance at CB, but they know he's built to be a safety.
