    Not so fast my friends,

     

    There may be a problem lurking in the future.

     

    A news report of a July 2 fire destroyed a JIM BEAM warehouse.  The loss from fire included 45000 barrels (approximately 53 gallons each) of bourbon.

    Then again, a Jim Beam rep states that 45000 barrels is less than 1% of their inventory.

    July 2, 2019 - a day that will live in infamy.

    Can someone older than me (I was born in '87) tell me if this amount of Koolaid and Hype (Heisman Watch Top 5, Best QB in the Conference) used to start before anyone had even played a game in the 70s and 80s?  It seems like they push it earlier and earlier every year.  I feel like they are trying to sell us Xmas decorations before Halloween.

     

    I remember schools would promote their wanna be's in the summer, I'm thinking the 80s maybe.  Not so much the media giving top 10 lists

    One reason I like the 4-team pods (and a 9 game schedule) is every team will get to play every other team every two years (home and home every 4). I hate not playing Nebraska for 5 years. I think Nebraska and Michigan could develop into a great rivalry due to the 97 Natinoal Championship split trophies and having Harbough and Frost as coaches, but not if they can't play the game. If we try and make the pods even strength, there will be too many protected games to schedule versus just rotating the pods.  I would rather put rivals in the same pod as much as possible so they play every year without the protected games. Unfortunately  I am not sure how to put all rivals (or teams with a history) in pods, but if NW and the Illini end up in different pods they can play a non-conference game every other year. I guess some fan bases may not like playing a non-conference Big Ten game versus getting to schedule a non-conference rival like Iowa/Iowa State or Purdue/ND. Games like Michigan/Minnesota would be every other year. The little Brown Jug story line is cool and I like the history of this game, but every other year is fine. I ran the Pod idea by a Purdue fan and put Indiana and Purdue in different Pods. When I mentioned they would keep the annual game alive with a non-conference game every other year he was fine with that idea. I would love to get a perspective from an NW fan about this Pod (NU,OU,KU, NW) and plyaing the Illini every other year in a non-confernce game. 

     

    Thank you for correctly identifying Northwestern as NW

    It is much easier to make a tremendous turn around like UCF and TCU did, if you play a softer schedule.

    But if you play in a major conference, that gets much more difficult.

    TCU made that jump as Big 12 members.

     

    Apsu said MAJOR conference :D
