As head coach or honorary team captain? There is wiggle room there.

like money. I like money, though.
|23 hours 47 min ago||47-5 Michigan||
i don't have time to scroll through for a realistic unclaimed score, so this will have to do
I did see 3 safeties last weekend. that may be influencing this prediction

|1 day 13 hours ago||It's not a loop||
It's a gradual progression towards our better selves with a few speed bumps along the way.

|1 day 18 hours ago||The NFL in LA||
After years of suffering (not at all, really) without a team in Los Angeles, I find it funny that the NFL finally gave us a team that can't even beat the Lions.
|2 days 21 hours ago||State's recruiting class||
appears to be a poor-man's fab 5 minus Webber. It's worth remembering that the Fab5 finished 3rd in the Big 10 their freshman year and the Fab 5 had a much better supporting cast. I know times are different, but I agree that State has the most variance among the Big10 teams this season. LSU had the consensus POY in Ben Simmons and they missed the tournament.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Rebounding||
seems like every year Izzo puts a team out there that outrebounds the opposition by 10 boards per game. Comparing projected rotations, it's possible we won't get destroyed on the glass by them this year. Schilling can only do so much until he gets in foul trouble. The question mark for me is can Irvin hold up at the 4 on the boards? Can DJ get some quality minutes there? If so, I like our bench a lot better than theirs.

I think you are thinking of Princeton. It's an understandable mistake to make as the academics are similar.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Mike Gundy is a man!||
He's 49! The countdown to the epic, "I'm a man! I'm 50!" rant begins now.
I knew he was older than me because I remember looking forward to making that rant when I turned 40. I emailed the rant to my brother when I turned 40 and he had no idea what I was talking about.
I place that rant side-by-side Allan Iverson's, "we talkin' bout practice" rant and Jim Mora's, "PLAYOFFS?!?" rant.
|3 days 22 hours ago||MSU||
MSU was my backup school. Fortunately, I was accepted by UofM before I had to submit my MSU application. I had the MSU application all filled out and ready to go. When the UofM acceptance letter arrived, I happily tossed the MSU application in the trash.

Care to share some details about that meeting? Is he as curmudgeonly in person as he appears to be on TV?
|4 days 22 hours ago||Brian Kelly||
The amazing thing about the latest ND loss is that Kelly went with Zaire for a large portion of the 2nd half. With about four minutes left and the Irish having their last chance at tying the score, he went back to DeShone. This late into the season, Kelly is clueless about who is the best option at QB. The same could be said of D'antoni in EL. If Connor O'Tyler had played that whole game, maybe sparty wins.
I've been a Brock Spack fan ever since I discovered that Brock Spack exists. What a glorious name. It's Ditka-esque.
|5 days 1 hour ago||State's defense||
you do realize they just gave up 54 points (47 if you don't count the kick return) to Northwestern?
|5 days 22 hours ago||When it was over||
STAEE scored to make it 33-31. On the ensuing kickoff, Northwestern took it to the house making it 40-31. That sucked any remaining life out of sparty. I thoroughly enjoyed that play.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Wisconsin defense||
OSU burned Wisconsin multiple times when Wisconsin sat back and only rushed 3. You can be sure Don Brown noticed that.
|6 days 1 hour ago||You must not watch Wisconsin play||
That's been a staple of their offense for years. It's a good way to make the linebackers honest and force them not to sellout against their power running game.
|6 days 11 hours ago||I watched both games||
My DVR has smoke coming out of it
|6 days 11 hours ago||Wisconsin||
I agree they are not a good offensive team, yet they put up 23 points in regulation against OSU and gained a ton of yards. If their defense hadn't forgot how to tackle in the second half they would have won the game.

Just got a first down! Whoooooo! And now it's time to punt.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Herbie||
He's such a homer that he had to move out of state for his safety.
|1 week 14 hours ago||What about a couch?||
Your suggestion is good except for couches. They're what always gave me the most trouble moving upstairs. Probably better just to burn your couches.
|1 week 17 hours ago||ROTEL||
While we're asking BTN questions, has anyone tried the Ro-Tel queso dip? And how is the Round Up herbicide? Does that work?
|1 week 18 hours ago||Wisconsin||
I'll grant you that Wisconsin appears to be the favorite. After that, it's a bunch of question marks. Dienhart has Indiana and MSU following them at 2 and 3. They have a lot to replace. I'd say Purdue looks to be better than us if they can get good guard play. He's got us at 5. I'd take 5 out of a 14 team conference as that gets us into the dance. I think we have a chance to finish ahead of IU and/or MSU. A ceiling of 3rd place isn't bad. It's not what we expect from the football team, but let's be honest, Beilein has outperformed the football team over the last decade.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Maryland||
Maryland has even bigger holes to fill. They're replacing 80% of their starters.
|1 week 18 hours ago||Indiana||
IU has a lot of production to replace. They may have a great incoming class (I don't know, I don't follow it that closely) but those guys aren't certainties at this point. Check out Alex's chart from his IU preview. They are losing 1, 2, and 5, and that 1 is a pretty big circle.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Alabama||
No, I haven't watched them play at all. I'll take back my "Easily?" comment because if you factor in the Bama QB's running ability and his pedigree as the #1 overall dual-threat QB recruit, he has an advantage over Speight. But I don't think the gap between Speight and the other 4 is as large as some around here would have us believe.
Colorado scored 28 on us, but only 21 was on the defense. I haven't watched Bama so I don't know how many points their offense has given away through turnovers. There schedule so far doesn't impress me that much. I don't think it's any tougher than ours. The fancy stats like our defense. Bama is giving up 292 yards per game to our 213. You can say that Bama is giving up yards in garbage time, but again, our average score is 50-11 so there's a lot of garbage time in our games too.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Wow||
Somebody who is more optimistic than me. I didn't think that person existed.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Bama||
Bama has already given up 30 and 43 points this season. What they gain over us with Hurts' legs, they give back with a less than completely dominating defense. But I haven't watched them play this year. I only watch SEC teams if I have to.
