rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
thoughtful piece from Jacobi on middle finger lady
Obvious post is obvious. Night games. I'm watching Alabama/Tenn before switching over to Iowa/PSU.
In the mean time I'll keep posbanging these threads.
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
First team to score on Bama in the first quarter this year
Hang a loss on Iowa in this crazy B1G year.
We won, woohoo!!, but we weren't exactly dominating today.
Would like PSU to beat the Hawkeyes
If I tell you it's Easter, you better start looking for eggs.
Some folks call it a sling blade, I call it a kaiser blade.
and can hurdle Boise players in case Musberger didn't tell you.
so many physical specimens on their team: Bell, Sims, and Tom.
Undergrad school beats MSU, now time for graduate almamater to beat Iowa!
It's like confronting the evil alternate-Kirk.
Has an obsolutely awful defense. What a waste of a great offense to pair it with that garbage
I am become Tim Hardaway Jr. Destroyer of Worlds
Cheering for Tennessee tonight. I can't stand Bama. And obviously for Penn State.

I'm watching West Virginia getting crushed by KState, because it's hilarious.
How many times have you been on the freeway and had someone fly by you at 100 mph then end up 2 cars ahead of you at the off ramp? What's the point? -Mark Harmon
If K-State does beat West Virginia they should be favoured in every game the rest of the way. Could be another BCS disaster.
WVU has so much talent on O, but being down 17 with their D being horrific, its almost like the game is already over
K-State absolutely taking it to WVU.
Is getting hot yet?
XP blocked, up 13-3.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
0 pts late into the 2nd quarter.
"The Ruhr will not be subjected to a single bomb. If an enemy bomber reaches the Ruhr, my name is not Hermann Göring: you can call me Urban Meyer!"
West Virginias offense is great against terrible, Godawful, and nonexistent defenses. Against the Texas Techs, KStates, and other average-to-halfway decent defenses of the Big 12 they can do absolutely nothing. They're not good. They need to fight just to make a bowl game from here on out, lol. Iowa State will give them a fight, Oklahoma State will be a little tougher than Baylor. Kansas is their only other guaranteed win this year.
They have Kansas the last week, and that should be enough to get them to 6-6.
There's no Big 12/WAC bowl matchup, but maybe things will somehow break out so we can get West Virginia/Louisiana Tech in the Beef O'Brady Bowl. We might see both teams go over 100 in that one.
The really amazing thing is that eight days ago people were touting them as MNC contenders and a potential undefeated team.
That was Iowa in the huddle talking about how to make 2nd and 7 into 3rd and 4, I imagine....

Better start scoring points, Mr. Heisman Frontrunner.
K-State destroying WVU 24-0 late Q2...
This is what I'm celebrating with ... $10 for 750mL, but the occasion is right!
"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
Is that beer or juice?
Haha ... Southern Tier Pumking, a pumpkin ale. Widely regarded as the "best" pumpkin ale out there.
I can't find this stuff anywhere. I have never had it and just want to try one. Oh well, looks like its time to start with the whiskey.
WVU returns a kickoff for a TD.
WVU with a kickoff return TD....problem is that the sorry ass gassed D has to come back on the field to get it's tail kicked for about a 5 min 13 play drive.
I hope that Mountaineer D is rested up and ready to go, because they're back up!
Holgerson has to be regretting getting rid of Casteel now. This new DC of his is dog crap.
Their defense wasn't all that good last year. They gave up nearly twice as many points last year (348) as they did in 2010 (176), both with Casteel.
The new DC apparently is not helping, though.
Where's Charlie Bauman when you need him?
Man I hope Tennessee pull off the upset, or at least keeps it close. I cant stand Bama.
THOSE WHO STAY WILL BE CHAMPIONS
I have to keep reminding myself that this is a Good Thing for Michigan. McGloin with the magic touch.
Based on this cornerback play, I just checked to see if Tony Gibson is coaching at WVU again. I was moderately surprised to discover he's not responsible for this.
Ann Arbor: now the permanent home of the Little Brown Jug
give the hawkeyes credit....they got this crowd matching thing down to a science.
In a very un-Penn State fashion, they put together a relatively quick (for them) drive, ending in a TD pass by McGloin to - yes - Jesse James, of all people.
Iowa's driving down the field. If you thought this game would be sterile and dull (State-Iowa like) that is not the case at all so far.
BTN not working. Anyone else w this problem
Iowa misses a 49 yard FG.
The FG. 7-0 Penn State
*edit Beat me too
K State 345, WVU 76.
Give West Virginia's defense credit--next to the Texas game, that's the best first-half performance they've had in a B12 conference game. And only 9.1 yards per play. It's a big step forward from last week.
This is a big reason why I never drank the Geno Smith KoolAid. The defenses in the big 12 are horrendous. He's a good qb but against even a competent unit he has struggled.
Most of the Geno Smith koolade this year was based on performances against C-USA and FCS opponents. And Baylor.
I don't think all the defenses in the Big 12 are that bad--K State's pretty good, Oklahoma's #1 in the country in FEI defensive efficiency. It's just that WVU started their schedule with the worst* (Baylor) and probably the third worst (Texas). It's all uphill from here until they play Kansas.
*ED.-Well, not counting West Virginia itself. What was I thinking?
14-0 Penn State. The Penn State offensive line has been giving McGloin hours to throw on several plays. Iowa is not getting penetration, and as a result, WRs for the Nittany Lions are gashing the Hawkeyes' defense.
Iowa has only 15 yards of rushing right now, and 46 yards of passing. They are going nowhere slowly with this offensive game plan.
Whoa fan on the field ... right in the middle of a play in the Miami/FSU - he had a better chance of making the tackle than the Miami defender lol
Some idiot ran on the field right in the middle of the play in the FSU/Miami game. Ballsy
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
Anyone else see the guy run out onto the field at the FSU-Miami game? Dude ran right into the middle of the field during the play and tried to get a high five from players. Crazy!
Iowa linemen dropping like flies.
...and Geno Smith throws an INT to start the 2nd half - stick a fork in 'em...
Fun Fact: Iowa's team bus was supposed to go over a cliff 2 years ago, but miraculously they were spared. Death has since been harvesting the lot of them one player at a time, ala Final Destination.
