|1 day 23 hours ago||rooting for Wisconsin||
We are not going ahead of Ohio State.
I do not see us going ahead of 11-2 Penn State as champ, who beat Ohio.
If Wisconsin wins, Penn State out with 3 losses.
And, we and Ohio beat Wisconsin, which gives the committee the out to send UM with Ohio as the 2 best BT teams.
Assuming the Buffalos pull it off.
Some tailgating friends of mine are offering to jump on the court of the hoop game tonite to guarantee Va Tech win, if they will guarantee beating Clemson in football.
Solving our problems with aggression.

That is how it works so well, for the most part.
The team, the team, the team.
Thanks to everyone who puts it all together, and for Brian for letting me write occasional diaries, and everyone who ever pos'd me.
or neg'd me.

and stayed all the way through both times
We missed a FG, Purdue was offsides, and we made it on the second try.
I was pissed because I wanted to see us win a 2 - 0 game.
In the second half, I left my end zone seat to spend a moment in about half the sections of the stadium, just checking out the views.

And now... the winner is... Pi Kapp! Their relentless offense proved just a bit too much for the passion-fueled Phi Delt team who were definitely on a mission to get back in the MUD!
Because we're sooooo close reaching the $50K goal, we'll keep the CrowdRise campaigns for all the Teams open through game day... Please, keep sharing and giving, giving and sharing!

LIke the fielding moves, you watch, and are not quite sure how he does it. He had at least one hit while pitching for UM.
The bunt thing was hilarious. Like the opponents figure he got all the way to UM without learning how to field a bunt? Yet teams would still try. Those were the easiest outs he got.
And his daughter is on our volleyball team now.

Southern football back then was pretty much scuffling hillbillies.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||1,000 th game||
ESPN Blowhard Beano Cook ranted about how Paterno would make the Big Ten his bitch.
A couple of great Keith Jackson quotes during the contest: as the scores scrawled, Auburn, on probation that year, was winning, and Keith said, under his breath, they would probably go undefeated.
Which they did.
Penn State seeming to him to not be extending maximum effort:
"Still, this is Michigan, and you'd better tend to your knitting."
A friend from Wenley House freshman year saw these shirts in the crowd. In those pre-web days, to get two, (one for me - thanks again) he called the Penn State bookstore the Monday after the game and had them mailed to him.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I submit 1960 as the best year for Big Ten coaches||
Not that I remember, but, with Purdue's first, and Indiana's only, Rose Bowl appearances in the 1960s, and the no repeat rule, there were lots of different Rose Bowl Big Ten teams before Woody and Bo took over starting in 1968.
1960 in order of finish:
Iowa - Evashecki, their #1 all time coach
Minnesota - Warmath, their #1 all time coach
Ohio - Hayes
MSC - Daugherty
UM - Bump Elliot
Illinois - Pete Elliot (I know, probation after)
All of the above won Rose Bowls
Northwestern - Ara Parseghian their #1 all time coach
Purdue - Jack Mollenkopt their # all time coach (check record v ND & Purdue) also won Rose Bowl
Wisconsin - Milt Bruhn lost two Rose Bowls, but ended up rated #2 in the country after 1962 season, highest ever for Bucky
Indiana - Phil Dickens

No offer from the top (?) of the second tier of Midwest teams?

Live from Cincinnatti
First, to the let's go blue! chant, they yell let's go Sioux!
and still wear those Indian head jerseys.
Second, looking at season stats? not so predictive for today. Check out ND preview, and how often they scored more than two goals in a game the last two months.
Look at how Racine is playing now.
UND gave up plenty of good scoring chances to Northeastern.
Will they play a penalty free game today? Uh, no.
Will we give up good scoring chances? Uh, yes.
UND very good? yes.
Dominant? No way.
Our 1998 national title team was 0 and 4 against MSC, and not nearly as good as the 97 team that was upset 3-2 in the semis.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Izzo-Beilein||
Spartan morons (excuse the possible redundancy) were yelling for Izzo' scalp not that long ago.
Do you really think he changed something to turn it around?
That he started recruiting or coaching differently?
No one stays on top forever. Everything has cycles.
College hoop is highly variable, and, as Ace aptly points out:
"College basketball is played on a razor's edge."
We lost our best, and 6th best, players, for the entire conference season.
In many of the games I watched, I saw the same problem, no reliable first, or second, offensive option. SF Austin and N. IA. played great, especially when getting turnovers and transition shots. When forced into their half court offenses at the end of games, big problems.
So, the situation is not unique to us, it is not because Beilein suddenly forgot how to coach.
Ace sums it up nicely.
We shall see.
For me, Go Blue!

on the road, why the naysaying? why give up now? we have been a third period team all year. Very rare to call 4 penalties in a row on one team, so now they can call the Minnesota interferences et al again.

I believe espn set the start of that game at 8:00 p.m.on a Sunday night
|37 weeks 3 days ago||just when I think they've turned the corner -||
as at Minnesota, they turn another corner, Ohio at home.
So, did we turn yet another corner last weekend?
At this point, I don't care. I am sucked into my fandom again.
I saw my first game the last year of the Coliseum, Angie Moretto on a terrible team.
Leading up to the OT title game loss to WIsconsin at Olympia, in 1977, after coming back from being down 5 -2 after two periods.
That team could score goals.
Then the LONG dry spell until Red.
I will make the road trip to Cincinatti, if we are there.

just a guess, PSU had a lot of SHG
could be coached that way to try for deflection to center ice and scoring chance
