"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Everyone who is academically a senior was honored, even if they have athletic eligibility for next year. Notably on that list: lots of the defensive linemen and the entire WR corps.

Kinda dumb NW is that far ahead of us, considering.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Actually think it's better||
Actually think it's better for us if Oklahoma takes care of business and Florida loses to Florida State or Alabama (preferably just FSU). I would think our theoretical wins over OSU and Iowa would keep us over OkState, but really the only way we win the championship is to avoid Bama. Need Oklahoma in there to upset them.
He said, almost a third seriously.

Now that Baylor's gone down: M beats OSU, PSU beats MSU, Stanford beats ND, USC/UCLA beats Stanford, M beats Iowa...

EDIT: sorry wrong thread.

WRs and Kenny Allen seem like the two nicest surprises from a player perspective.
Lewis being THIS good and the non-Lewis corners being as good as they are would be the next layer.

New Year's 6. It's the top tier bowl games for teams which do not make the playoffs.
|1 week 2 days ago||Butt and Lewis are first team||
Butt and Lewis are first team for sure, probably no first team on the DL but I think all three of Henry, Wormley, and Glasgow could get mentioned. If I had to bet, second team for Wormley (flashier stats) and honorable mention for the other two. Rudock and Chesson maybe honorable mention with how they came on late. Kicker seems kind of weak in conference this year, so Allen might get honorable mention? Mason Cole might get mentioned, but the rest of the OL seems unlikely.
If they put a FB on the team, Houma seems likely somewhere.

Depends if Baker Mayfield can play. Without him, they're meh.
|1 week 2 days ago||If we're riding a 10 game win||
If we're riding a 10 game win streak, I think we're probably currently ranked third behind Clemson and Bama.
|1 week 2 days ago||1. Clemson 2. Iowa 3. Bama 4.||
9. OK State
Think that's everyone with even a slim shot at making the playoff.

Basically, the rule is dumb.

Beat Ohio State and somebody beats MSU. We'll probably be picked ahead of them for $$$$ reasons.
|1 week 2 days ago||Stranger things have||
Stranger things have happened, though this year they've mostly been in MSU's favor.
|1 week 2 days ago||It's like Kirk Ferentz||
It's like Kirk Ferentz managed to plant a sleeper agent in the OSU coaching staff.

Definitely. Bunch of friends in town for Thanksgiving are coming with.

PSU front seven is gooood.
|1 week 3 days ago||Play call was exactly right.||
Play call was exactly right. Had a quick slant against a corner blitz. Rudock just threw it slightly outside.
|1 week 3 days ago||Henry got blocked below the||
Henry got blocked below the knees from behind. Is that legal in the middle?
|1 week 4 days ago||We're rooting for Ohio State||
We're rooting for Ohio State because MSU winning means we have to root for Penn State next week and frankly I find that way more objectionable.
Also, rooting for OSU to win by enough that JT Barrett feels the need to celebrate.
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Should be noted that if you||
Should be noted that if you hold while running out the clock, THAT is beneficial and can buy you an extra 25 seconds as long as the result of the play encourages the opponent to accept, which is absurd.

2007 already had this happen with just two teams so whatever.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||And Rodriguez won three total||
And Rodriguez won three total road Big Ten games. So yeah, we have sucked on the road for a while. Now we're winning ugly. So that's fine.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Also quite a lot of||
Also quite a lot of DISRESPEKT, OSU -13 against State.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||People are crazily overrating||
People are crazily overrating PSU. They've played well once this year, against a mediocre Illinois team.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Worst case, we get Alabama||
Worst case, we get Alabama against State and that shit will be comical.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Brian is increasingly right||
Brian is increasingly right about not sliding. UCLA guy dove head first at Wazzou's QB's head when he slid, no call.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||We'd be fourth right now if||
We'd be fourth right now if THAT hadn't happened. Ahead of all the Big 12 teams, even the undefeated one.

Noon is before PSU wakes up, according to James Franklin.
Or he has a very poor understanding of time zones. One of those.
