Fitting end to season for Big 10 & 12

Unread postby FUDU » Sun Nov 28, 2010 9:15 pm

Interesting that the rivalry that could be said to really put the Big 12 on the map years ago, Neb v OK, will be the final CCG with the current Big 12 alignment before NU heads off the the Big 10.

Also, the 3 way tie in the Big 10 in the B10's final year w/o a CCG.

A great sub story for the 2011 season IMO would be kicked off this January if somehow OSU and Nebraska did battle in a bowl game, not sure of how good a chance there is of that happening (probably pretty low).

I was anti-conference championship game at one point, but I've come around. This year's Big Ten was a perfect example of why. Would love to see a rematch of Wisconsin/OSU ... or OSU v. a Sparty team they didn't get to play this season.

Another awesome week of games. More empirical evidence to help make sense of the BCS mess at year end.

Looking like OSU v Arkansas in the Sugar. Assuming Auburn takes care of the Cocks in the SEC title game.

Imo that sounds like no win situation for the Buckeyes.

A) they win and it's well that's Ark, not one of the SEC true powers.
B) they lose and it's see OSU can't beat even a middle of the road SEC team,SEC is grrrrr!

I would rather a different bowl.

I'd take a win over Vanderbilt right now just to get the SEC monkey off Ohio State's back. Haters will always hate but the scoreboard is what matters.

I just found out that if the big ten had a championship game this year the Buckeye's would not be in it.

Forget that. I would assume it is because we are in the same division as Wisconsin and would lose the H2H tiebreaker, while Michigan State would be in the other division and not tied with anyone.

spot on pup !!! 3way ties will be over and Ohio State winning the big ten 6 straight may never be broken. Hopefully they make it 7 next year !!!
