Wisconsin's luck still pisses me off. All those years going to the Rose Bowl by playing the bottom dwellers, losing to a top Big Ten team, not having to play the other top big ten team, and now this year with OSU and PSU out, all they have to do is beat Purdue today and they have a 3 game lead in their division.
Noon game open thread
So when is Ferentz's contract up?
meanwhile Chizik and Auburn continue to suck. down 14-0 to Ole Miss.
EDIT: A blind squirrel found a nut..14-7 Rebels.
The Minnesota RB hit someone so hard the M on the side of his helmet flew off. That was pretty awesome. This kid is running hard.
Penalty negates a touchdown, and it wasn't even needed. Bad football being played by Iowa this year.
What a stupid penalty...
Worst block in the back ever.
No one worry...the Iowa offense has got this.
You can tell Weisman isn't a great RB because he stops/loses his feet with contact too easily.
The Badgers are suddenly looking competent against Purdue. I hope it's just that Purdue's spirit is still crushed from last week and not that Wisconsin is improving.
This Purdue/Wisc game isn't making me feel good about our win last week.
Their wins were over three terrible and overmatched teams. Their best game was a close loss to ND on the road.
Yeah, but Wisconsin has been barely more than a bad team this year as well. And they seem to be doing better on offesne and defense than we did vs Purdue. Not very encouraged by this game.
We were up 18, and it was only that close because of the fumble. We won 44-13. Chill out.
Weather looks crappy in East Lansing. I'm 15 miles east of Ann Arbor and the sun is just barely starting to come out.
Oklahoma beating Texas 20-2. The Horns do not have a first down and have 14 yards of offense to Oklahoma's 239. Wow.
Yikes. Duke up 20-0 on Virginia Tech.
Too bad Iowa had to settle for 3 there. Nice work recovering from getting their return TD called back.
1st Quarter: Duke 20, VT 0
Are we living in the bizarro world?
This Texas defense is pretty bad
I wonder when Purdue finally realizes Terbush just isn't any good...kid sure has a lot of rope.
It's not like they have much else in the way of good options. Marve is pushing his luck on a 3rd torn ACL, and Rob Henry has done nothing.
You make due with what you got, and what Purdue has at the QB position just isn't very good right now.
Purdue safety drops an INT in his own end zone, enabling Wisc to kick a FG. Championship football.
Wow, what has happened to Texas?
Oklahoma just beating Texas to a pulp 27-2.
LOL at Iowa...
That's a forward pass.
VT scores. They will not be shut out by Duke at least.
Texas: 12 plays, 14 yards. Oklahoma: 34 plays, 314 yards. Maybe Oklahoma is actually good.
Well..this is probably Hope's last season, not sure who Purdue will reach for this time.
This was neither a forward pass/reception nor a fumble.
Incomplete forward pass.
One of the better offensive lines? HAHAHAHAHA
And is Ferentz really not going to go for it?
So dumb. I knew Ferentz would not go for it.
If Iowa punts I am quitting life.
Hawkeyes this week.
P.S. OMG was that clumsy.
Texas completes a 31 yard pass and then immediately throws a pick. I mean...
Nice work, Iowa. Idiots.
I think Ferentz told him to twitch because he wanted to punt.
I can't believe how far the Big Ten has declined. This is embarrassing.
I had sort of pegged MSU's rough game against Indiana as an anomaly , but it's looking more and more like State is just not that good. That said, Iowa looks atrocious.
In our game against MSU last year they blew it dead on a clear backward pass that we recovered without contest. Announcers just said if that happens then the only thing defense doesn't get is the advance, but try do get the ball. So why didn't we get the ball last year? That was a possibly game changing incorrect call.
Oklahoma has had trouble in the red zone for two seasons, but Stoops has put in the backup QB in those situations this game, and it has worked like a charm.
Edit: Backup QB is running the ball.
The Badgers are approaching 350 first-half yards in W. Lafayette. But their LT just got dinged so maybe that's the break the Boiler D needed.
That sequence was BIG TENNNNNN! personified.
Is MSU's sideline made with sand?
Just awesome clock management here by Ferentz and Dantonio. Jebus.
The last minutes of MSU-Iowa have just been so painful to watch. From Iowa's whole 4th down conversion, to MSU's attempt at hurry-up....
THE COACHES ARE SCREWING IT UP
SPARTY NOOOOOOOOOOOO LMAO
