This is a good team and I think dismissing them is a mistake. Right now they are going off at 25:1 to win the BCS. I don't think they win it all, but they do have the D to do it. The O???? Well there is a lot of uncertainty there, but the defense will be as good or better than last year's.

Reports of their death have been greatly exaggerated, much to the chagrin of the program's haters.

The Big Ten placed four teams in the rankings with Wisconsin (No. 11), Michigan State (No. 17) and Ohio State (No. 18) joining Nebraska.

You know that they have OSU circled on their calendars and hVe the Buckeyes targeted as the team they need to beat to introduce themselves to the B1G. Playing in Nebraska, with a newly integrated team, against a Husker opponent and crowd that will be as amped up as any on history, is a steep hill to climb.I'm also scared to death of Michigan for some reason. I just keep thinking of Tress taking his first team into Ann Arbor and am worried that Hoke might be able to pull off the same thing. I think our ace in the hole there is that Fickell will have his team whipped into a frenzy for that game. I can't imaging that he and Vrabel will tolerate being the ones to go north and fuck the dog after our recent domination. And, our team is better. That's probably the most important thing.

I am not sure I understand what the big deal is, the D is pretty good (although they did lose some major players), but the offense was awful. Martinez cannot actually throw a football. I am telling you, the NE game is going to be tough, but I don't think it is a guaranteed L.I like this team to win 11+ games this year. Tressel was a good coach, but it is not like he was the greatest tactician in NCAAF history. I am concerned about the offensive play calling, but I figure it really could not be more predictable than it was last year (or any of the last 10 years). Defense will be all world, better than last year.

O/U is 1. Number of games Colt McCoy will miss due to injury. O/U is 3.Number of times Fire Marshall Bill will pop in after yet another PSU loss to remind us at least the Nittany Lion program doesn't cheat. O/U is 4See, in each the above examples, the under is a good thing
