Big Ten Championship Game Open Thread

Nebraska-Wisconsin. 8:00PM EST on FOX. Gus Johnson and Charles Davis are calling the game.

Various sources have the line in favor of Nebraska by 3. If Nebraska wins, Michigan is all but assured the Capital One Citrus Bowl against A&M (likely) or Georgia, while the conversation is a bit more complicated if Wisconsin wins.

"Give Nebraska credit they are playing for a championship in their second year."

Um they are embarrassing themselves and us.

Also, if our OL performs half as well as Wisco's tonight I think we'll be in good shape in the medium (hopefully) shorter term.

Has a team ever started taking a knee before the last drive of a game? I feel like that is even more dickesh than running the score up so I could see the big badger calling for that.

They get confused and out of shape from a bunch of funky Harbaugh/Stanford-style motion, then the guy who's supposed to have the backside containment on a power off tackle chases after a fake jet sweep to the opposite boundary and can't get back.


and over

and over

and over again.

Anybody else have the feeling that the Wisconsin staff realized all they had to do to win their division was show up for their games, so they might as well spend the entire three months game-planning for Nebraska and Michigan?

Insert one blade of scissors through the body wall on one side of the umbilical cord and cut posteriorly to the base of the leg as shown in the first photograph below. Continue cutting from the anterior end of this cut so that it resembles an upside-down U. Your finished cut will be anterior to the navel and along each side of the navel. The flap of body wall that contains the navel can be folded posteriorly to reveal the internal organs of the abdomen.

This just makes me a thousand times angrier at Borges and his hinky plan for big games this year. Wisconsin started trying to run the clock out in the 1st quarter, they could end up hanging 84 on Nebraska.
