I'll take that. screw the cornspiracy
You might have been half right.
Edit: or close to completely. 70-30 now.
re: Wisky's "barge" formation. Any rule junkies clarify what the rule is? I thought you could only have 7 on the LOS but they had 9.
You need at least 7 on the line of scrimmage.
You have to have a minimum of 7 on the LOS. You can have as many as you want (10, for all practical purposes), but only the outside two guys are eligible receivers.
why is it that this game is on fox when there are absolutely no other big ten games on fox the rest of the year?
It has to be because ESPN gets the rights to our games that people actually want to watch. Otherwise our marquee games would be on Fox more often.
Just be grateful this game wasn't relegated to NBC Sports.
Fox owns 51% of the BTN (the conference has the other 49%).
Watching this makes me have concerns
I almost typed something about Ball's run but then I forgot I'm watching it in the past. My one month old boy shat his diaper and I had to pause it. The post about Ball's run would most likely not be very timely.
I appreciate instead of just not posting it you posted to tell us you aren't going to post it lol.
I have twins and they double shat.
The post-season is inherently south/west favored. It's obvious that the vast majority of the bowl games are played in the south and west which favors the teams from those regions in both weather conditions, proximity, time zones, etc. But, it also appears that their conference championship games are also much closer to the majority of their schools than ours are, mostly because they are in closer proximity to each other. This will only get worse as the B1G expands. Imagine how a Rutgers would travel to a B1G championship game. How far is NJ from Indianpolis? The furthest team in the SEC from Atlanta would be Texas A&M or Missouri, which is new this year. But, LSU, SC, Georgia, FLA, Bama, Auburn, MSU, Ole Miss, & Arkansas are all incredibly close to each other. I don't know if there is any anwser to this, but the south/west will always have a better model and an advantage in the post-season.
The fallacy in your argument is Rutgers going to the BTCG.
Snark aside, though, it is interesting that most of the teams that are likely to make the championship game on a consistent basis are all within about 6 hours of Indy (Nebraska being the conspicuous exception).
Rutgers in a B1G Championship Game = brutal divisional realignment decisions and blind luck.
Even PSU is over 500 miles from Indianopolis, Rutgers is over 650 miles, Maryland is 600 miles, Minnesota almost 600 miles. In comparison Georgia is 70 from Atlanta and Alabama is 200 miles from Atlanta.
But, LSU, SC, Georgia, FLA, Bama, Auburn, MSU, Ole Miss, & Arkansas are all incredibly close to each other.
Huh? To go from Baton Rouge to Columbia (SC) is an 11-hour drive. Fayetteville to Gainesville is a 15-hour drive. These states are a lot bigger than you think.
The difference with the SEC, I think, comes down to the fact that 1) Atlanta is a much bigger city than Indianapolis and has alumni from all of these schools and 2) the average Southerner is simply more into college football, and more likely to want to go to the game.
I meant are all close to Atlanta...in comparison.
Michigan, during the Schembechler years.
They looks so good right now.
Nebraska has all kinds of guys running around totally confused.
I know makes me weep. Thanks Al.
I think we were doing fine against Nebraska, until Denard was hurt.
Alabama, Sparty, and Ohio gameplans were letdowns. Nebraska was a different frustration (lack of prepared 2nd QB)
This Wisconsin offense is MANBALL (c) certified.
of Taylor Martinez's TD run...HOLY CRAP, that was Denard-esque...although 16 would've been there in half the time.
just got home did Bo Pelini blow his head yet??
He's been close multiple times already
Still think he looks like a fatter Voldemort
Nice throw by Abrederis.
which may not be a bad thing.
Nebraska gettin SMASHED
They really need to have the championship at the team with a better record's home stadium
Lincoln, Nebraska would be an even more depressing place tonight...
Signed your beloved fan base!
And perhaps the year after as well.
can um borrow Wisconsin's oc for bowl season?
I'd rather have Neb's OC personally.
Both are good. Both show adjustments and more importantly innovation within their respective systems that suits their personnel. I don't care which system we run as long as our OC can do those things.
Showing the world what a fraud Nebraska is
Queue some poster stating they wishing we had Devon Garner ready for Denard's injury in the Nebraska game.
The folks at the Rose Bowl are going to be so excited by the Big Ten rep this year. Yawn!
Title game will never garner a lot of attention until it's UM vs Ohio. Until then, it will be like tonight, half empty, and nobody interested outside of the Midwest.
It will never draw national attention until the teams are truly elite. Kind seems like UM and OSU are the only ones capable of getting there. But maybe MD can change that.
Am I the only one who wants to see the video she made?
Some perv looked into her hotel room and recorded it.
Was referring to the droid commercial
