BOOOO. I wanted the threads separated! I know you were behind this FA!!!

31 confidence points on Mizzou. If anyone thinks Iowa is going to win, well you are just high man.

The two games should each have their own open thread. 

The purpose of the open thread is so that there aren't numerous topics discussing the same game. 

Expecting people to filter all their comments for two games (one pro and one college none the less) in one thread is absurd.

I know that you were excited to be the one to create the open thread but use your noggin..........

It's quite a bit different.  It's not 10 games. It's 2, meaning just two threads.  Also, we're talking about a pro game and a college game.  A person who is interested in a bowl game is not necessarily interested in a Tuesday night NFL game, and vice versa.

And my apologies to the OP for the snarky comment.  I didn't realize that FA combined the threads.  With that said, the fact that a mod decided to combine the threads doesn't change the fact that it is silly.

This is what I was really respond to.  If people are expected to filter comments for ten games on Sunday, I wouldn't think two would be a big deal.  Either way, neither of our opinions matter.  FA said that one thread was the way to go, so that's that.

This may be a silly question, but I have always wondered this since I played. Why if a OL flinches he gets flagged for a false start, but I see linemen moving all around when an audible is called?

Good to see that Millen is still dealing in cliches.  I just heard him say "Iowa is a physical team.  They'll be physical the moment they step off the bus."

Thousands of Big Ten fans just experienced a redirection in blood flow.

2 deep man, even when Mizzou is 5-wide.  It'll be interesting to see if Mizzou can consistently take advantage of it.  Forcier and Stonum certainly did in the second half of the Michigan-Iowa game.
