Is on Big Ten Network. BTN allows you to watch games internationally without using an American VPN because it'll be 9:30pm CET and we're jetlagged and probably too tired to be walking around by then.
I'm in Italy and will be watching the game from our AirBnB on the BTN2Go app. See below - bolding mine.
What is the difference between BTN2Go International and BTN2Go?
BTN2Go International is available by subscription and can be accessed individuals living or traveling outside the US, Canada and select Caribbean Islands. BTN2Go International is available to fans who do not receive the Big Ten Network from a participating domestic TV provider.
Alternatively, BTN2Go is available for free to existing subscribers of participating domestic TV providers and can be accessed worldwide, regardless of geographic location. Visit www.BTN2Go.com for more information if you currently use BTN2Go domestically, or if you receive the Big Ten Network from a participating TV provider and would like to access BTN2Go.

Can't wait for this week's edition of the roster look-a-like diary.

I was really interested when he was hired at Montana. Struggled his first year (relatively speaking, given that Montana is an FCS powerhouse), but is 5-1 so far this season and looking strong in the Big Sky.
If he can finish out this year strong, would be interesting to see if he'd make the move to FBS - although Montana could probably beat Purdue.

Many folks were saying Kyle Kalis was as physically ready coming in as anyone they had seen. However, he struggled mightily. How much of that was just him vs. the coaching staff? Given his improvement this year, I'd like to say it's more on the previous staff, although you never know how much of it is one vs. the other.

Really? It's not like they're on the Mason-Dixon line or anything. Technically, Columbus and Bloomington are farther south than Urbana-Champaign.
However, I do agree that Illinois should be much better at football than they are. They could/should own Chicagoland recruiting.

you could experiment with a matte clear coat to see if that would achieve the desired effect on the helmet. no idea on the bumpers.

is currently working at the hospital until about 7:30pm, so the kids and I will be cleaning the chicken coop, going to REI, swinging by the library, going to church small group meeting (bible study and potluck dinner), flipping between the Cubs and Ohio state/ Wisconsin, and putting the kids to bed. full day.

there are plenty of people who don't give one whit about sports. I know people in Chicago who couldn't tell you the name of the Cubs manager or bears head coach.

That's my take, also. He seems to go down more easily than a guy his size should.

why do so many people ruin this meme? it's only funny because of the bad grammar employed by the Japanese designers of the video game. it should be "all your rutger are belong to us"

their women's volleyball team is a perennial power, and won that national championship last season.
Currently, Big Ten teams are ranked:
We have a strong volleyball conference, yo! ohio state hosts the natty this year, according to the googles.
|1 week 17 hours ago||next year||
It is likely to be Speight, unless Peters or O'Korn (what of O'Korn???) really come on. I'm guessing the depth chart next year reads:
2018 is where it gets interesting. Does Speight stick around for another year, or does he try to get drafted? At that point, Peters will be a RS SO and be in his 3rd year in the system. If Speight sticks around, that puts Peters at possibly being starting QB for his RS JR and RS SR years, although he'd be pushed by McCaffrey (RS FR and RS SO seasons) and whatever other amazing top recruit QB they convince to commit to Michigan b/c HARBAUGH.
This is a good problem to have.

If I were an opposing coach, I wouldn't waste my time looking through the blogger analysis. I'd have a GA do that and then compare to their own film studies.

They brought in Billy Donlon, who is known as a defensive coach. I want to say that Beilein likened him to a "Defensive Coordinator" for the b-ball team. I'm hoping between his defensive emphasis and improved conditioning, we'll be able to better balance the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.

I believe it's actually Giordane Lluwess

"And sure, through three quarters they had shown the offensive vigor of one of those capsules that you sink in water, and a dinosaur sponge emerges."
Great analogy. Now what level of vim would you say they played with on Saturday? I'll go all the vim of a shrinky dink in the oven getting smaller by the second.

When they use the word "Kindly" in their scam-mails. I did not see the word "kindly" in his proposal, therefore it is legit.

So we can see that the student section cleared out early, as did much of the stadium. What about the 200 some-odd recruits? I assume they were required to stick around the entire game?

PSU fans would be ECSTATIC to finish 8-4 after the way the season started.
As for other fanbases, one look at Off Tackle Empire seems to suggest that most everyone views Franklin is not a success at PSU, except for some PSU fans.

My wife is a nurse on the transplant/surgery floor at Lurie Chidren's Hospital in Chicago and shares heartbreaking and inspirational stories about these kids often. She's been to more funerals than she cares to remember, and seen kids like Larry long outlive their initial prognoses. Some of the kids she's seen go from birth to now teenagers, the hospital being like a second home to them.
Much respect and admiration to the families and kids who deal with this, and to the medical professionals who have surely become like extended family.

Thanks for being *that guy* and keeping me honest!

we talked about this before. a friend of mine works in private wealth management and has clients worth hundreds of millions and billions. he said that mega lottery winners are the worst clients because they don't know how to be ridiculously rich.
his suggestion was to splurge on one thing - get that initial urge to spend out of the system and then give the rest to him to manage for at least year, completely hands off. live like you've been living for that year and then start making decisions as to how to spend the money. let the initial thrill wear off. he's seen people lose it all in a couple of years because they went so crazy.
outside of that, I like what Victors Valiant wrote. pay off mortgages and debts, endowments, college funds, and Christian and other charitable causes (my local church, world Vision, red Cross, compassion international, ALS Association, FMSC, etc)
