DENARD YAYYYYYY. We are happy at each other.
DEVIN KIND OF GOOD. It is a nice thing as well.
HEIKO HOT DOG CONSUMPTION TECHNIQUE. Unusual.
DEFENSE COULD HAVE COVERED THE TE A BIT BETTER. We'll take it, obviously.
FERENTZ ONSIDE KICK SERIOUSLY GUY? Just roll over and die instead of throwing your troops fruitlessly at the walls.
TALKIN' BIG TEN WITH JAMIEMAC. A brief digression into Iowa's GLORIOUS FORTHCOMING VICTORY over Nebraska, then we split the rest of the time talking M-OSU and expansion.
The usual links:
SH: That hasn't been the sense I've gotten, but this is squishy and unquantifiable.
BC: The inevitable 16-team end game isn't even a conference anymore. You get one game against the other division. One!
SH: Yup. Current lineup in the SEC still has two, but yes. In a 16 team format you get one, unless we're talking about adding more games. We are inevitably talking about adding more games.
BC: At least there's that. If there's anything good that comes out of all of this it's the reduction of bodybag games like last weekend's SEC schedule. But what does one game do? It means you play the teams in the other division once every four years, ie less often than ACC teams will play Notre Dame. I stop caring about those teams when I don't play them. Instead of having a rich history with Iowa I have a vague relationship with them.
I think we should insert "Someone I Used to Know" here.
SH: Framed against a pic of Adam Jacobi.
Rest of it at the link. I'm apoplectic and this was before I'd found out what the divisions were going to be!
Maryland prez tells regents MD, RU in Leaders Division w/OSU, PSU, Wisconsin, Purdue & Indiana. Illinois moves to Legends
Michigan will play OSU every year; other division opponents will play them once every six years. Good job, good effort Dave Brandon.
So guys. I am considering the inevitable endgame here where the Big Ten adds Georgia Tech and some other program that isn't Pitt to go to 16 teams and this is Michigan's division:
- Michigan State
- Penn State
- Georgia Tech
- Purdue Or Something
Michigan would then play members of the other division once every eight years. Goodbye, Iowa, Wisconsin, Little Brown Jug, taking over Ryan Field, etc. It was nice playing you those four times, Nebraska. At that point wouldn't you just be like "screw it" and prefer the following?
- South Carolina
Academics? Sure. Academics. This is all about the books.
