The Morning Drop: The morning live show dedicated to our paying YouTube members to talk and chat live with us covering any and all breaking Auburn Sports News.Auburn flips an transfer recruit from Bret Beilema's Illinois team and Bret takes to twitter to cry about it. With Bielema's experience in the SEC, he's certainly no stranger to how recruiting works down here. So why would he step on Avery Jones' commitment announcement?

Mike Carpenter is ready for the Reliaquest Bowl, capping off a successful second season for Bret Bielema's program. He discusses Illini football's resurgence in 2022, from an October to remember to a November to forget, and why a win over Mississippi State would be more than just a cherry on top. Also, Luke Altmeyer commits to Illinois with 3 years of eligibility left, and a new DB coach is named. Finally, Brad Underwood's basketball squad showed signs of life before resuming Big Ten play next week.
Lon and Derek continue to preview the ReliaQuest Bowl and hear from Bret Bielema, who met with the media down in Tampa today. The guys also discuss Aaron Henry being officially announced as the defensive coordinator.
Illinois has shown steady improvement under Bret Bielema much the same as Mississippi State had under Mike Leach, and now the two programs meet in Tampa at the first ever Reliaquest Bowl. But this Illini squad had been decimated by opt-outs and coaching changes, so the question is, what can they do against the Bulldogs on January 2? Brian Hadad welcomes back his old friend Matt Stevens, now with IlliniGuys.com, to give an inside look at what the Big Ten representative is bringing to the bowl.
This week on Inside the Headset, we are featuring our GA panel from the 2022 AFCA convention. The panelists discuss what they look for in a GA, how to be successful, and maintaining discipline through adversity. Bret Bielema recently completed his second season as the Head Coach of Illinois. Bielema arrived in Champaign with 24 years of collegiate coaching experience and a 12-year record of 97-58 as head coach at Wisconsin and Arkansas. While at Wisconsin, he led the Badgers to three Big Ten championships and six consecutive bowl games including two Rose Bowls. Coach Sean Lewis recently completed his fourth season as HC at Kent State and recently took the offensive coordinator job at Colorado. Lewis brings an extensive coaching résumé to Colorado after his time at Kent State and has been one of the fastest-rising coaches in the nation over the last decade. Ryan Riemedio completed his first season as the Head Coach at Mercyhurst and his 10th year on the Mercyhurst University football staff in 2022. In 2021, he was elevated to Assistant Head Coach and defensive coordinator while coaching the team's linebackers and continued his role as the program's strength and conditioning coordinator. Riemedio joined the Mercyhurst football coaching staff in 2012 as a graduate assistant working with tight ends, fullbacks and assisting with the offensive line. Dr. Alvin Parker completed his fifth season at Virginia Union University in 2022, and his 24th overall on the collegiate level. Dr. Alvin Parker got his start in coaching at Virginia Union in 1999 after he finished his playing time there. He served as the offensive coordinator and running backs coach at VUU until 2003. In 2004, Coach Parker was hired as the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at Elizabeth City State University for where he spent 12 seasons. Julian Griffin currently serves as the running backs coach at the University of Texas at San Antonio. In 2021 coached Griffin coached C-USA Player of the Year, Sincere McCormick on the way to the school's first-ever conference championship title. Griffin was also selected to the 2022 AFCA 35 Under 35 Leadership Institute. Prior to UTSA, Griffin served as the offensive quality control assistant for two seasons at the University of Arkansas.
University of Illinois student athletes, Jer'Zhan Newton (St. Petersburg) and Keith Randolph Jr. (Belleville) are powerhouses on the defensive line this year. This dynamic duo was even given the moniker the "Law Firm" by their fearless leader Bret Bielema for their exceptional teamwork. Listen as these two friends, roommates and teammates tease each other while expressing what the true life of a student athlete looks like. Their different personalities show through as they discuss the pressures, time constraints, fear of injury and tough transitions through coaching changes. Most importantly, Newton & Randolph talk about their future in football: The ReliaQuest Bowl in Tampa, declaring for the NFL and/or returning to college for the Fighting Illini. These two athletes were engaged, enjoyable, respectful and hilariously unfiltered. In the next few weeks many decisions will be made and one BIG game will be played, one thing is for certain, any team is lucky to have them. I'd like to thank this episode's sponsor, 29Mane Salon.

Offense vs Illinois starts at 1:00 Turns out Bret Bielema and Brian have something in common. Michigan had a close call but so did the rest of the top 5. Michigan was planning to have Blake Corum throughout this game and with him out in the second half nobody seemed to execute very well, especially the QB run game. JJ seems to have regressed since the Penn State game. Feels like Michigan tried to stick to their game plan with the wrong guys. The holding call on Zinter was a terrible call, the CJ catch at the end of the game wasn't a catch. A lot of officiating strangeness. Is this game that applicable for Ohio State? Their run defense wasn't this aggressive against even Northwestern. A lot of starters were warming up but didn't play, so how much of this game was keeping guys healthy for Ohio State? [The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP] 2. Defense vs Illinois starts at 41:42 This was the first offensive line that was able to do anything all season to Michigan's defensive tackles. There can only be one Wisconsin and now it's Illinois. Mason Graham came to play in this game. This is a true freshman and Brian can't even. Mike Morris was missed in this game, the pre-season prediction about the defensive end depth being not great may have come true. They're going to have to blitz a lot against Ohio State - force CJ Stroud to make mistakes. Discussing the safety rotation and how it translates to Ohio State. 3. Hot Takes and Game Theory starts at 1:10:22 Takes hotter than a tie game in the 'Shoe in the 4th quarter. Let's talk about the decision making before the game winning field goal. Does the Lou Groza award winner really need an extra four yards? Field goal kicking discussions, the holding call, and punting. Iowa may actually win the West, in an affront to God. 4. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac starts at 1:34:52 Ohio State has been outgained in three of their last four games. Maryland... Penn State... There are multiple games in which Michigan out-performed Ohio State. SO YOU'RE TELLING ME THERE'S A CHANCE? Getting pressure on Stroud is still going to be the biggest issue for Michigan. 2022 Iowa. This game had the lowest over/under ever for an FBS game... and it was still under. MSU outgains Indiana 540 to 288 in a game where Indiana completes two passes... and Indiana wins? MSU only has one turnover. None of the math adds up. This is a vintage SPARTY, NOOO. The teams exchanged block field goals in the first overtime. Now Michigan State will need to beat Penn State to go to a bowl game which seems unlikely. Wisconsin vs Nebraska yielded an "uh" which sums it up nicely. Casey Thompson came back for Nebraska but their ground game was completely shut down. Northwestern Purdue is an ugly affair. Is Northwestern the best poor weather team? Penn State spanks Rutgers, the end. MUSIC: "I Am The Moon"--Tedeschi Trucks Band "Someday"-- Julia Jacklin (a Strokes Cover) "Oh Boy"-- Cam'ron “Across 110th Street”

Doug, Nathan and Stephen try something new on this Thursday Buckeye Talk. In the wake of the firing of Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst, it's time to spin the Big Ten coaching wheel. Doug, Nathan and Stephen had to decide whether current Big Ten coaches kept their jobs based on the rules of this game: 3 coaches had to stay in the current jobs. 3 coaches had to move from one Big Ten job to another. 3 people associated with Ohio State (mostly current or former assistants) had to take over a Big Ten program. 3 other new hires had to be picked. And the final 2 spots were wild cards that could be done in any of the four categories. The result was a discussion of every Big Ten coaching job and whether the right person is currently in the job, but with a twist. Thanks for listening to Buckeye Talk from cleveland.com.
