  1. The good news is we get to play the games. And there are a lot of games to go.
  2. I ould love for Fleck to coach in the Big Ten. I do not wish Purdue on him.

    Beware of the Hoosiers.

    B1G Week 6

    Why does Rutgers hate Michigan? UofM has about 9 kids from Jersey on their team including Jabrill Peppers and last years #1 overall recruit Rashan Gary. Harbaugh had a camp at their high school (Paramus Catholic) this year and spoke at commencement. Paramus Catholic played a High school game at the Big House this season. Rutgers fans feel violated. Especially after that game.

    B1G Week 6

    Rutgers said the game against Michigan was their national championship game because they hate them so much. I guess they lost. They did get a first down against the 3rd team D.
  6. Yes ISU would be a last resort, but they are AAU which helps. Probably nothing for about 8 years unless Texas and OU implode the Big12.
  7. Sounds like a vote to leave. Wait it out and OU and KU are in the Big Ten. What are the closest ones? KU, KSU, ISU and Mizzo? Everyone except KSU is an option to join the Big Ten. I will predict that KU is part of the Big Ten within the next 10 years. By the time the GORs expire.

  9. Honestly, the Big Ten Alliance (aka CIC) is probably more valuable to the school than football. The faculty would revolt.
  10. A conference that won't make the playoffs for the second time in 3 years.
  11. I would agree. Thus the face palm.
  12. Here is the link. http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/report-nebraska-wants-to-rejoin-big-12/ar-BBx2U0W Reason is NUs brand hasn't benefited from the Big10. Article says they would replace OU who wants out. face palm.

    Thinking Maryland will give Penn State all they want. agree. All home teams except Rutgers and PSU.

    B1G vs. Power 5

    Holy cow! I'm heading home before it snows. Hope he didn't jinx us.

    B1G vs. Power 5

    And Wisconsin. Ah yes. How could I forget. Hope this makes up for it. On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin! Plunge right through that line! Run the ball clear down the field, A touchdown sure this time

    B1G vs. Power 5

    The Big Ten held serve. One more game against P5. Indiana vs Wake Forrest. Should end up 9-3 and send the ACC below .500. Kudos to NU, MSU and OSU for good wins. The FCS salutes Iowa and NW. Ready for the B1G season to start.
  17. He claims he's never eaten a booger. At least he can laugh about it. Speaking on his radio show Monday night in Ann Arbor, Harbaugh brought this up with co-host Jim Brandstatter for a point of clarification. He denies both acts. "I have never eaten a booger in my entire life," Harbaugh said with a laugh. "That might have looked like what was happening. But I think if you rub your nose and then you bite your fingernail, that's not eating a booger now. "There was no booger eating. Let me clear the air ... for clarity here, for the record, I have never eaten a booger in my entire life." Add this one to the ever-growing list of unique Harbaugh quotes and stories.
  18. Dont forget the ACC needs 2. ND and Uconn? Uconn and WVU in case ND doesn't comply.
  19. These are the correct list of teams. Maybe add ISU (AAU school) as a last resort.
  20. I agree. The new Big Ten media agreement expires a year or two before the big12 GOR. I suspect we will see some movement to 16 at that time. We need ditch these 7 team divisions. I am sick of not getting to play NU.
  21. yeah OU is tricky because of OSU. Big Ten prefers AAU schools. OU is not one, but either is ND. OU would benefit greatly from the CIC or Big Ten Academic Alliance. The research bucks dwarf football. I suspect they would jump at the academic advantage over the SEC.
  22. With the pod system you also have a home and away every 4 years. I really like it. 14 is too awkward.I would rather have 12 or 16.
  23. I like this pod format the best, but PSU's pod leaves a lot to be desired if I'm a Nittany Lion fan. Question, would two pods make up a quasi division or would it be totally rotational? Yes two pods make a division and the pods rotate every year. Example Red and Blue divisions below would repeat every two years. NU could then play UofM/MSU in year 1, and OSU/Purdue in year 2 for example. Or mix how you want. This is a 9 game conference schedule so you still have 3 out of conference games. year 1: NU, KU, OU, Iowa Wiscy, Minn, NW, Illini UofM, OSU, MSU, Purdue PSU, Maryland, Rutgers, Indiana year 2: NU, KU, OU, Iowa PSU, Maryland, Rutgers, Indiana UofM, OSU, MSU, Purdue Wiscy, Minn, NW, Illini Yes, PSUs Pod is weak. the point of the Pod is not competitive balance, its to keep rivals together and play regional games every year. Purdue and Indiana can play an out of conference game every other year to keep the rivalry going, and be guaranteed a weak opponent. :-) We could always kick out Rutgers, try and steal ND, and swap Purdue and Indiana. NU, KU, OU, IowaWiscy, Minn, NW, Illini UofM, OSU, MSU, Indiana PSU, Maryland, ND, Purdue ND likes to play on the east coast anyway, plus they get Purdue...I think they would like that.
  24. This may be wishful thinking, but I don't think OU and KU to the Big Ten within 6 years is out of the question. I think its very possible. The ACC is more viable now and extracting Virginia, GT or NC is less and less likely. The only monkey wrench to OU and KU is Texas getting a dose of humility, which I think is unlikely. I think we need to go to 16, play each other every two years in football (home and home every 4) and call it good. Pods: NU, KU, OU, Iowa Wiscy, Minn, NW, Illini UofM, OSU, MSU, Purdue PSU, Maryland, Rutgers, Indiana Note: Indiana and Purdue play an out of conference game every other year to keep the rivalry.
  25. I think the drawback is the current football divisions, which will likely be updated with the next round of conference expansion, and not getting a full share of the $$. But you are almost there and it's going to be a lot of $$.
