  1. I didn't know where to post this, but thought it was fun. This article lists the colleges that Super Bowl QBs attended. Notable stats: Not one QB from a Texas school has started in a Super Bowl. 11 from the Big Ten. 3 from Purdue leads the way. Cal leads the pack with 5. https://amp.businessinsider.com/super-bowl-quarterbacks-colleges-2019-1

    B1G Basketball 2018

    We have won 79% of our non conference games. 33 against power conferences.

    We should put about seven team's into the tournament. It is shaping up to be a fun year for Big Ten hoops.

    The BIG in Bowls

    Minny and Wiscy won. At least we can beat the ACC. MichiganDad3, I hope the Big Ten does well, but I do not think this years bowl results help next years playoff selection. Big Ten only lost 1 bolw game last year, I think. It didnt help OSU get in. I wish for a 8 team playoff, but that discussion is in another thread.

    The BIG in Bowls

    There are a bunch of starters for Michigan sitting out the game including 2 team captains. Getting ready for the NFL I guess. Some of these guys are late round picks as well. The team and fan base seem very apathetic toward playing Florida again. I’d be surprised if Michigan wins. That said, I agree with Colorado Husk, the bowl games mean less and less if you are not in the 4 team play-off. With all the key players opting out of playing, it starts to feel like a warm up for next year.
  6. The part of the course on how to cover your tracks by deleting texts messages will be well received.
  7. Wow. Maybe failure teaches good lessons.
  8. GT is an option. They are AAU. Wasn't the Big 10 flirting with Virginia and NC? Didn't that cause the ACC to create a GOR?
  9. Yes we are stuck with Rutgers, but we can make jokes about other teams being Rutgered.
  10. Keep in mind the Big10 had a criteria to only accept schools that were part of the AAU the last time they expanded. NU was part of the AAU at the time. KU and Texas are members of the AAU. OU is not. Notre Dame is also not a member. I believe the Big 10 would make an exception for OU and Notre Dame, but I don't think they would take Oklahoma State. I agree that ND makes sense. If we put them in the East Pod it may satisfy their desire to play games on the east coast. Pod1: NU,OU,Iowa,Purdue Pod2: Wisconsin, NW, Minn., Illinois Pod3: OSU, MSU, UofM, Indiana Pod4: PSU, ND, Maryland, Rutgers Better yet, replace Ruters with Virginia.
  11. I believe the big 10 did consider TAMU before they went to the SEC. I doubt they would leave the SEC now.
  12. I think it will be Kansas and not Texas. In the end Texas will demand to keep their network. Pod1: NU,OU,Iowa,Kansas They also will want MSU,OSU and UofM playing every year. The same for NU and OU, and other pod match ups. I like the pods because teams will play each other every two years and have a home and home every 4 years. With 8 team divisions we would never see some teams.
  13. You want to keep the rivalries within a pod since they play every year. Also try and keep them geographically close. Pod1: Nebraska, Texas, OU, Iowa Pod2: Wisconsin, Minnesota, Northwestern, Illinois Pod3: Michigan, MSU, OSU, Indiana Pod4: PSU, Maryland, Rutgers, Purdue Purdue and Indiana can play in a non-conference game every other year as the only protected game. Pod 1and 3 would only ever play two teams from the other pod to keep the schedule balanced better.
  14. Not surprised at all. Especially after he said he was going to coach next year. Revive a program Win a title Scandal Health concerns Retire Repeat

    Franklin to USC rumors.

    Agreed. It was a reporter from a PSU site. Nothing like pissing off a coach you want to keep.
