big ten championship
Do we have a possible perfect storm coming up to get that needed help? Let's look at a few item for MSU/PSU:
PSU O vs MSU D:
Last night the wind may have protected the MSU secondary from being exposed. PSU's most successful play and biggest talent is at QB and had good receivers. Can PSU throw on MSU and get a lead? (insert comment on the strength of the MSU D line here)
MSU O vs. PSU D:
MSU isn't a rushing juggernaut. Cook may still be out. Can MSU generate offense against a stout PSU defense? PSU D can generate turnovers.
No spread yet. It's gonna be exciting!
Just saw an interesting article on ESPN Wolverine Nation about the 4 criteria that makes up the average B1G champion. The criteria are 1) top 40 scoring defense, 2) top 30 rush defense, 3) control the turnover battle and the clock, and 4) rank in the top 30 of rush offense. Basically they are saying the B1G champ all boils down to running the ball and defense. ESPN seems to think Michigan either is on the fence or meets all of those except the last one. I think most of us are pretty confident that this year's team will be fairly stout on defense, that there are enough skill players on offense, yet we are all concerned that the o-line will be competent enough to get an adaquate running game going. Do you buy this criteria?
He is such a polished speaker and brillian representative of the school, but there's gotta be a point where he's like, "really?"
"Big Ten Championship."
Who's planning on renewing their Big Ten Championship tickets from last year? I just received an e-mail about renewing them but I'm not planning on it. I'm 99% certain that we'll reach the Championship game but I'm just going to buy tickets off the secondary market once the time comes. Last year I paid $125/ticket, while comparable tickets were going for ~$10-$15 the week before the game. Probably not the best investment.
Just for fun, who do you have playing in that game? I think it'll be Michigan vs. Wisconsin. Wisconsin doesn't have a single team to stand in their way.
