Only issue I have with this is Purdue getting no love for a heckuva showing against Louisville.

Big Ten Power Rankings: Maryland Terrapins rise in post-Week 1 poll

 

1. Ohio State (1-0). The passing game needs to amp it up with the Sooners coming to town.
Last week: 1
Up next: Oklahoma

 

2. Penn State (1-0). Perhaps no Big Ten was more impressive in Week 1. How good can this team be? Scary good.
Last week: 2
Up next: Pitt

 

3. Wisconsin (1-0). The Badgers made a strong statement in the opener. What team in the West is gonna beat Wisconsin?
Last week: 3
Up next: Florida Atlantic

 

4. Michigan (1-0). Rebuild? Nope. It appears the Wolverines have reloaded and will be a factor in the East.
Last week: 4
Up next: Cincinnati

 

5. Northwestern (1-0). It’s difficult to top the 1-2 punch of QB Clayton Thorson and RB Justin Jackson. This is a good squad, despite the early Week 1 struggles.
Last week: 5
Up next: at Duke

 

6. Maryland (1-0). Was the win at Texas a program-changer? Perhaps. The Terps impressed in every phase of the game.
Last week: 8
Up next: Towson

 

7. Iowa (1-0). The defense looked very impressive in stuffing Wyoming and its vaunted QB, Josh Allen.
Last week: 7
Up next: at Iowa State

 

8. Nebraska (1-0). The Huskers came oh-so-close to face-planting vs. Arkansas State. The defense has a lot to improve.
Last week: 6
Up next: at Oregon

 

9. Michigan State (1-0). Routing Bowling Green was a good first step in erasing the bad memories of 2016. How good is this team? Don’t know.
Last week: 9
Up next: Western Michigan

 

10. Minnesota (1-0). P.J. Fleck is rowing the boat, but the offense needs to row faster.
Last week: 11
Up next: at Oregon State

 

11. Indiana (0-1). How will the Hoosiers rebound from that emotional loss to the Buckeyes?
Last week: 10
Up next: at Virginia

 

12. Purdue (0-1). It will be really interesting to see what happens when the talent catches up to the coaching.
Last week: 12
Up next: Ohio (Friday)

 

13. Rutgers (0-1). It looks like the Scarlet Knights have a legit QB in Kyle Bolin. That means there is hope.
Last week: 13
Up next: Eastern Michigan

 

14. Illinois (1-0). It was an ugly win vs. MAC Ball State at home, so the Illini remain in the basement.
Last week: 14
Up next: Western Kentucky

Apparently Georgia fans are flooding to South Bend

 

 

 

Yeah, apparently they (we), Georgia Fans completely took over the Cubs game where Vince Dooley threw out the first pitch.  Apparently, Nebraska broke NDs psyche in 2000, hoping Georgia has at least 40000 in the stands, since red seems to be their kryptonite.

I met a Georgia couple a few days ago.  It was quite interesting to say the least but the guy said that there were going to be Georgians everywhere for this game.  Low and behold even driving down Michigan avenue yesterday there were just like he said lots of Georgia fans.  He said Georgia bought all of their tickets they were allowed but even despite that fans who didn't have tickets were still making the trip down.  

 

 

It Took $4K To Get A Georgia Fan To Get Off An Overcrowded Flight To South Bend

Quote

 

The Bulldogs’ fan base really wants to see this game.

South Bend, Ind. is going to be invaded by Georgia football fans on Saturday.

The Bulldogs are playing their first road game north of the Mason-Dixon Line in more than 50 years and a sizable portion of UGA’s fan base is expected to make the trip.

A bunch of those fans were on a Delta flight from Georgia to South Bend, Ind. this morning. Unfortunately, the flight was overcrowded. So Delta started offering up a monetary reward, hoping someone would take the offer.

It started at $2,200.

It took $4,000 for a Georgia fan to take it.

Red shows up better in pictures.  You wouldn't see it if PSU took  over another stadium.

 

That being said I think the Dawgs broke ur record from 2000.

Big Ten Power Rankings: Purdue moves up to No. 8 in post-Week 3 poll

 

 

1. Penn State (3-0). The Nittany Lions have outscored foes 141-14 with two shutouts. The defense has allowed just one TD.
Last week: 1
Up next: at Iowa

 

2. Wisconsin (3-0). Alex Hornibrook looked like a Heisman contender Saturday, hitting 18-of-19 passes, the highest completion percentage (.947) in program annals, for 256 yards with four TDs in a 40-6 win at BYU.
Last week: 2

Up next: off; Northwestern, Sept. 30

 

3. Ohio State (2-1). J.T. Barrett bounced back in a big way with 270 yards passing. But it was vs. Army. Does that count?
Last week: 3
Up next: UNLV

 

4. Michigan (3-0). The wins keep on coming. But, golly, the offense still isn’t clicking. Is it time to worry?
Last week: 4
Up next: at Purdue

 

5. Maryland (2-0). The Terrapins are coming off a bye. Will they maintain their mojo?
Last week: 5
Up next: UCF

 

6. Iowa (3-0). The Hawkeyes were the Hawkeyes last week … grinding, pounding, playing smart. Now comes a huge test. Say “hello” to Penn State.
Last week: 6
Up next: Penn State

 

7. Minnesota (3-0). Grab an oar and a spot in P.J. Fleck’s boat before it fills up.
Last week: 7
Up next: off; Maryland, Sept. 30

 

8. Purdue (2-1). The Boilermakers are an early season surprise. It’s amazing what Jeff Brohm is doing with players he didn’t recruit.
Last week: 10
Up next: Michigan

 

9. Michigan State (2-0). Coming off a bye, the Spartans will look to pick up where they left off in a dominating 2-0 start. The visit from ND will be telling.
Last week: 8
Up next: Notre Dame

 

10. Indiana (1-1). The Hoosiers had their game cancelled. More prep time for Georgia Southern. Time to pad the resume.
Last week: 9
Up next: Georgia Southern

 

11. Northwestern (2-1). Welcome back, Wildcats! Nothing like a blowout win vs. a MAC team to make everyone forget an ugly loss at Duke.
Last week: 13
Up next: off; at Wisconsin, Sept. 30

 

12. Illinois (2-1). This is a young team that’s going to suffer a lot of growing pains this season.
Last week: 11
Up next: off; Nebraska, Sept. 29 (Friday)

 

13. Nebraska (1-2). That’s two losses in a row for the Cornhuskers, who made strides on defense. But now the offense has issues.
Last week: 12
Up next: Rutgers

 

14. Rutgers (1-2). The 11-game losing streak is over. Now, it’s time to end the 14-game Big Ten losing streak.
Last week: 14
Up next: at Nebraska
