  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

My neighbor is a Michigan alum. After his senior year victory, he would only refer to him as "Fucking Troy Smith".

No greater honor has ever been bestowed.

Birm:

Anything more specific than "fall"? No complaints, just seeing if he was thinking it would be a September thing or more towards the end of the season.

Gracias.

You see another side of him, that of a hands-on parent who wants to see his son make a good decision and be around sold people, that a lot of us can relate to.

No doubt he's been impressive. I still think that they would like to add a space-eater like Jackson (or, obviously, Gary or either of the Lawrence boys) to compliment Barrow, who is "small" at the 270-280 lb. range. With Bosa, Cooper, and Barrow, though, we've certainly lined up three extremely disruptive D-linemen.

Best of luck to him. Loved his tape and, from every communication Birm relayed, seemed like a solid, down-to-earth kid. That said, it's not yet September and we have time to adjust.

I love recruiting rumors that coming seemingly from out of nowhere. There's usually something there.

PJ Fleck is my guess, too. Said it to a co-worker the minute I heard Beckman was out. Narduzzi is certainly an interesting choice, too, but I would be worried about getting out of Pittsburgh alive if I were him and became the latest coach to skip town. Illinois' unique place in college football has to be a move up for someone and I think Fleck's situation represents the most logical promotion.

5. Devin Smith bailed out Cardale of at least 2 interceptions during the playoff. Thata fine, thats how deep ball throws go. But a qtr of an inch to the left and Smith makes 1 td vs Wisky instead of 3.

Why this was never mentioned by anyone is beyond me. The first TD was really a flat jump-ball.

Nothing you said about Mad Men was incorrect, especially regarding the repetition, but my dad (40 yrs in the ad biz) was quick to comment on how spot-on it was.
