My favorite part of the play is, of course, all the linemen downfield with Butt as he gallops fervently downfield. The topper is #71 being at the 25 yardline with Butt as he's tackled. That's over 40 yards downfield for those keeping score at home.

I see this more of reporting news on a rival team, and upcoming game.
I did not catch the OSU/IU game, and I don't follow all NCAA headlines as closely as most on this board.
I appreciate the information, but like all humans (at least all humans with a conscience), I hope this kid recovers fully, and has the opportunity to achieve his personal goals.
It will be interesting to see who can step up and perform for an already lackluster group of WR's.

It seems like sharks have some sort of infinite, forever power over everything. What are we to do? How do we become a shark? Are there meetings, shark-only clubs? Where they discuss their strategy to kill all the broke thumb-twiddlers?
I'm trying my luck on low stakes DFS, and all I keep hearing is that the sharks win all the money. If they always win, why are they playing $2.20 buy in games? To make $4? What's the point if they are a shark. Go steal someones money in the $200 buy in. Jeez.

I was hoping with Harbaugh at the helms, we would be seeing more RB and TE screens. I do like the bump in WR flares/screens, and they have been effective, but I really think Butt could be deadly against agressive D's on TE screens, dumps, etc, etc. Anything with a delay.
Also, I'd like to see play action boot-legs for Rudock, with Butt rolling out into the flat. Another simple play that works against agressive D's.
I'm all for simplicity, especially if the D isn't respecting Rudock's ability to beat them over the top. Nickle & Dime them all day, then go over the top to Chesson.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||What Do I Think...?||
|5 weeks 4 days ago||It's not about what we've||
EDIT: Meant a reply to ESNY
It's not about what we've seen over the last 2 years.
If you're telling me that Shane Morris, right now, is the same exact QB he was two years ago, then he should be kicked off the team and his scholarship should be given to someone that can actually help the team.
All I'm saying is that if Shane was toe-to-toe with Rudock during fall practice, enough to warrant an "OR" in the depth chart (or at least being name the #2 if not 1b), then maybe he has grown into a D-1 QB.
If Shane is holding his own in practice, then I think we need to see if that translates into live game action.
And Rudock has a 2+ year history of not being able to hit receivers over the top.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Our receivers are legit. Butt||
Our receivers are legit.
Butt is as advertised.
Smith runs like a mad man. Sure he misses some holes, but the first guy has trouble bringing him down.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I trust this staff to make||
I trust this staff to make the correct decision as much as anyone on this board. But you could tell Rudock was "off" last night. Even Gus Johnson was surprised to see Rudock come back out on the field after the pick 6.
Let's just say I wouldn't be shocked to see Shane start next week.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I would say that Harbaugh||
I would say that Harbaugh went with the QB that he felt gave him the best chance to win a road game against a Top 30 team in a season opener.
And if Morris is really as bad as you believe, why is he listed as #2 (OR 1b) on the depth chart? Shouldn't he be buried behind Gentry and Speight?
All I'm saying is that he needs a fair shake at proving himself in a live game. If we can blow the top off coverage, then we open the running game. Rudock is proven that he can't throw the deep ball. That's his M.O. Ask any Iowa fan. Ask anyone who watches a ton of B1G West games. He just doesn't have the arm to threaten teams with the deep ball. All I'm saying is give Shane a chance.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I know I received a ton of||
I know I received a ton of downvotes for requesting a change at QB to Morris. I only said this because I believe that the "OR" on the depth chart was legit, and that we actually had a real QB competition this fall. I think Morris can do more. He's more mobile, he has a much stronger arm, and he may have better chemistry with the receivers.
If he solved his one glaring problem, putting touch on the ball, then I think we should give him a chance. He can't be the same QB we saw last year.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||My two cents...It was the qb's fault. Can't make||
My two cents...It was the qb's fault. Can't make that throw. He made some nice progressions on throws where he has time, but on any 3rd down play, he stares down the primary target the entire time. Not what a 5th year grad transfer should be doing. I'd like to see Shane start next week. Let's see what he's got.

It's a great opening week of college football even if we were to keep our midwest, B1G glasses on. HUGE week for the conference:
Obviously, Michigan @ Utah
TCU, projected to make the playoff, comes to MInnesota, the darkhorse to win the B1G west.
Wisconsin with a primetime match-up against a consensus pick for the playoff, Alabama.
Nebraska gets to preview BYU for us.
Michigan State on the road against and "on-the-rise" WMU.
Northwestern gets to host the darkhorse to win the Pac-12, Stanford.
Penn State and James Franklin open on the road in an interesting game with Temple.
Ohio State looks to get redemption against VT, on the road.
Purdue is another road game, against Rany Moss' alma mater, Marshall.
The rest (Rutgers, Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa) look to not embarass the conference with home games against cupcakes.
Of games with betting lines, the B1G is to lose 5 of the 10 (underdogs are Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue, and Wisconsin). If, as a conference, the B1G were to win at least 2 of the 5 underdog games, and 5 of 5 favorites-to-win games (MSU, OSU, Neb, PSU, and Ill), then it will be a very impressive week, and keep the momentum rolling from bowl season last year.
Prediction: B1G goes 11-3. Losses from Purdue, Northwestern, and Minnesota.

Wisky beat American (a nobody), Oregon (who finished their season winning 8 in a row, including a W over Zona; and finished tied for 3rd in the Pac-12), Baylor (a team with 26 wins, and 5 or 6 really good wins), and Arizona (who was the unanimous #1 almost the entire year until they slipped up a couple times after losing Ashley to injury).
Michigan beat Wofford (a nobody), Texas (a team eerily similar to Baylor (Texas went 2-1 against Baylor)), and Tennessee (whose biggest win was probably beating Iowa..., but looks good on paper).
So just going off of who each team beat, I would give Wisky the edge. Throw in the fact that they got to the Final Four, and that might tip the scale in their favor.
Either way, Michigan and Wisky both had great years. It's a shame one of us couldn't win it all for the pride of the Big-Ten....There's always next year...

Baylor's offense didn't show up. Or Wisconsin learned how to play defense. If the latter is the case, then Wisconsin might be the most dangerous team in the NCAAT.

Wisky is making the Baylor defense look like moldy swiss cheese.

I guess I was blinded by the 2nd half of the Oregon game. And I figured Baylor would destroy Wisky's defense.
And this is why I don't bet on sports.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Welp, so much for this||
Welp, so much for this Wisconsin/Baylor being the prettiest/best game of the NCAAT.
I was coming into it expecting a final score around 80-75 Wisconsin. This is the exact opposite of what I thought, besides the fact that Wisky is still winning.

This 2nd half is probably the 2nd best half of the tourney.
That Wisc/Oregon 2nd half last night was just about the most enjoyable game (not involving Michigan) I've seen in a long time.
And this game is right up there with that one.
Some good bball being played this tourney (but also some ugly ugly bball as well).
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Man this UK/WSU game is||
Man this UK/WSU game is interesting.
I honestly have no clue who we would want of the three: UL/UK/WSU IF we get by Mercer/Tenn.
Both WSU and UK have huge athletes, can slash like crazy, and drain open threes. UL has a couple trees, a "not just a shooter", and a very good PG.
I guess any of the 3 are going to be a very tough team to beat. I really can't think of which is the "best matchup" for Michigan...
Any other insight for this would be helpful...
(gun to my head I pick Louisville)

Interesting note on teams who won their conference tournaments from the "BCS" Conferences:

Not the expected names to see as Tournament Champs. In the games to be played, it's a little more of the norm:
Big-10: Michigan or MSU

I guess a more worthwhile discussion thread would have been to ask:

Can't tell if WSU is for real legit or if they just look this good because they are playing weak teams. I mean yeah they can score in bunches, but how much can be credited to how good they are verses how bad their opponents are.
Gotta give them credit for never slipping up against these crappy teams though. That's all on the head coach. He seems like he knows what he's doing there. Maybe he'll be the next Brad Stevens and go from a Mid-Major to the NBA.

This may sound greedy, but I really want them to win the BTT. I know it means nothing, but I would love to beat either MSU or Wisc in the Championship game. Of course I would sacrifice winning the BTT for a deeper run in the NCAAT though.

Well there are definitly two solid sides to this topic. Yes there are going to be flaky teams from power conferences that will lose early in the Tourny (ie OSU this year would be a good upest pick).
But I think in general we tend to see teams from non-power conferences that roll through the regular season struggle in the NCAAT. I mean even last year Wichita State lost 6 games on their way to the Final Four.

Very good point. That is a long list of close games against inferior competition. It will definitly be interesting when they face a well coached team that doesn't struggle against a full-court press.
