Illinois 6-6 vs Baylor 7-5
GOOOOOO BIG TEN
I picked Baylor, but I'm rooting for the Zooker here. He needs a job next Fall.
Zook should forget about being a head coach and find a job doing what he does best: head recruiter for a major program. His bank account should be fine now, and he can afford to take a cut in pay to be seen as competent again.
I hate you Baylor.
You grabbed our Ekpe.
I didn't always feel compelled to root for Big Ten teams (particularly MSU, OSU) in OOC/Bowl games until I spent time in the south. I still don't root for OSU, no matter what. When they play the SEC, I just look away (and it's worked!)
I do root for OSU out of conference. For better or, mostly, worse, they're the standard bearer for the Big 10 right now. MSU on the other hand, it's fun watching them lose.
The Fighting Zookers will pull it out!
Sans OSU (always) and MSU under Dantonio.
I got Baylor with 18 confidence points. My ballot for the pool is already effed in the A so if Illinois wins I wouldn't mind. State of my birth, makes our opponents looks stronger, and B1G representin.
very similar to Dennard and is quite the athlete. We shall see.
Closer to Newton, with more speed.
But I suddenly have 0 confidence in it after watching Missouri muck around vs. Iowa last night. The B12 may just blow.
Get ready to break out the late night alcohol and reds.
That Maryland is inducing.

Better than the tank bowl at this point
Since when do basketball schools fire their coaches after 9 win seasons?
Standards are to low? Lol
Did you actually laugh when you got done typing your comment?
I sense there is more proclaimed laughter on the internet than in real life.
But perhaps not.
What about you?
I have no problem with acronyms.
However, I usually don't laugh (maybe never, in fact), either before or after I've typed out a comment. If I did, I'd probably avoid the use of "lol" because I see it as presumptuous.
To each his own.
Thanks, BTW, for answering my question. I was genuinely curious.
alot of presumptuous people on websites. Don't take yourself so serious. Assuming of course that your question was genuine, and you weren't trying to be a douche.
Will they push the game to ESPN2 or wait until the ECU Getting Run Over By a Tank Bowl is over?
Edit: Scrolling at bottom now. It is on ESPN Classic and ESPN3.com
Please start. The ParaMilitary Bowl is no damn good.
And it's a college football game, but they put it on Classic. Brilliant ESPN!
Vs. Baylor. Dodging the B12 for MSU South probably is doing us no favors.
Oh, game's on regular ESPN now too.
We can beat Miss St.
to stream a bowl game where I can officially root for the Big Ten but know that the sky will not fall and lives will not be destroyed and blogs will not crumble into semi-terminal angst if one team wins or the other. Can just focus on a nice play, a pretty pass, a perfectly timed tackle, and think how lovely it is that these young men can play a game in December.
And do something else at the same time because it's no big deal if I miss anything.
It's nice to just watch a game, hope it's exciting, and hopefully the big ten wins. My heart needs these types of games
looking good so far gents.
10% of the way through their bowl games, I don't think it's too early to declare the Big Ten the best conference ever!!
that's TUOS and Arizona State with Jake Plummer. That Buckeye team is incredibly talented... and they play dumb. I really miss Stanley Jackson, but the dumb plays are really spread out. It's a team stupidity effort.
Meanwhile Illinois is looking good. 16-0.
Well, at least it was 14 years ago when I watched it live. I recall a rainy muddy field which is rare at the Rose Bowl. But not sure how good my memory is on that.
A couple of slips on both sides so far. OSU is clearly superior, except for Plummer. ASU does have a fast defense... but the Bucks should have rolled those guys. The QB swapping, the cute plays that don't work, the multiple defensive offsides... they kept the Devils in it.
Some names: Jackson and Germaine at QB, David Boston, Orlando Pace, the Big Katz, Shawn Springs, Antoine Winfield. And it was 7-7 at half.
Run it up! Leave no doubts!

You need to cut it up Mr. Lashore.
I really liked watching Iowa represent well last night, and Illinois looks good. I hope the Big Ten is undefeated in bowls this year. Is it possible that RR happened to join the Big Ten just as we were getting back to the best conference in the nation? In my mind, the better the B10 does, the more likely RR keeps his job. Is that nuts or what?
OOOOOhhhh --- nevermind. Almost a big fumble on the punt return.
Not nuts, bowls are a good showcase for the level of talent we've been up against all season. I love seeing teams we beat annihilate other teams.
A better Big Ten only makes it harder, not easier for Michigan. And particularly OSU and MSU winning does us no favors in recruiting. If you're a Big Ten fan (whatever that is), swell. An undefeated Big Ten doesn't help Michigan a lick unless you're hanging with a lot of SEC fans.
Baylor alum are usually ones to avoid here in HTown unless of course you need a decent job. They do tend to be wide-eyed and firm believers. However, they have a hell of hospital system here in Texas along with a decent Med School in HTown.
coach and have a stake in the outcome must be extremely frustrating for our Illini brethen. One game he looks like a genius and the next well you know.......
Maybe the Big 12 just sucks?
the Big12 all year down here. Mediocre at best. OU is ok but way over-rated.
What a bull shit call!
Looked like dominant defense to me.
Maybe Nebraska will not be as daunting as originally thought. Several writers have them as the early favorites for the Legends division (Big 10 Northwest) next year.
