Does the B1G go 0'fer Today?

Unread postby furls » Tue Jan 01, 2013 1:08 pm

Big slate of games for the B1G today. I am not really rooting for any of the B1G teams this year except Northwestern, I pretty much always root for the Wildcats.

So my question is can they win a game today in pile of tough matchups.

Purdue vs. OSU, Gotta like OSU because Purdue is offensively inept, but Minnesota's good effort and near win vs. TTech might say something about the relative strenght of the B12. I like OSU to win.

NW vs. MSU, I think this may be the B1G's best shot today. The 'Cats specialize in losing bowl games in the 4th quarter, we'll see what happens. I like NW.

scUM vs. USCe. Unfortunately, I think scUM may have a shot here. I always root against them, but I think they could win this one as USCe does not have a great O, and scUM has a shot at a few more big plays. I don't really like USCe's team that much this year, so I am going to say scUM either wins or loses by 400, can't tell.

Nebraska vs. GA. GA wins by 700.

UW vs. Stanford. I dont' think UW can run against the Cardinal, therefore they lose. The wildcard is Alvarez, but I don't think he is enough to put them over the top.

So I see the B1G with 1-2 wins today and another year of hearing about how bad the B1G is all year from ESPiN and their ilk.

NW off to a fast start, like every year. Setting up for their disappointing 4th quarter loss.

Yeah, they are good at that, not just in bowl games. My son and I always root for the 'Cats unless they are playing tOSU.

'Cats still looking pretty good.

scUM on the other hand.... not so much. Earlier this week Hoke said that he thought that Clowney could be blocked one on one. I think he is right, if Orlando Pace is your LT. Taylor Lewan, you are no Orlando Pace. I gotta feeling this scUM vs. USCe game is going to be UGLY.

Clowney would be #1 this year. There are better players in the NCAA this year, but there are no better players with a higher ceiling. I really like that LB from Georgia, alot (Ogletree?).

scUM's O is so completely overmatched in this game by the USCe D that it is pathetic. Borges is a terrible OC, and scUM does not have the OL to contain the USC DL and they have no playmakers. scUM will lose this game by 30+.

Statue of Liberty, seriously?

There are people in the world who think Gruden (in his current mentally handicapped status) could coach a real football team.

Those people should all get together and find the pot of gold under the next rainbow.

Yeah, Nebraska and scum are hanging in there.

USCe just put 4 DE's on the field on the DL for a play and scum ran a 7 step drop pass play, no audible out or TO. They deserve to lose this game. Draw play or screen would have netted 5,000 yards on that play.

B1G does not look like the punching bag the media keeps calling us. I don't know if NEB or UM will pull out the win, but it at least they are competing with SEC teams.

Bag QB play though. B1G NEEDS better passers. So badly.

Purdue looks inept. I wonder if Hazell will be able to do anything with that mess. I personally would have passed on that job if I were Hazell. It is a career wrecker if you are interested in moving on to a bigger program. Purdue sucks hind tit on in state talent for a state that is not particularly great at developing elite talent. They really have no recruiting base, it is a coaching career ender.

That said, Purdue is the thorn in OSU's heel.

So NW looks like a win to go with Purdue's loss. That makes the B1G 2-2 so far.

MSU win
NW win


Purdue loss
Minny loss

This Ga vs. Nebraska game is going to come down to which of the chokers chokes the game away, Mark Richt or Taylor Martinez?

At least these games are competitive. That is more than I can say about the bowl games most years.

NEB looks like they want it more, although Georgia is coming back.

SCUM is playing an interesting game too. Fun games so far. Best medicine for my hangover.

Both B1G offenses look more consistent at this point. We will see if that keeps up.

You can sense the game getting away from Nebraska a little right now. They need a conversion here to answer GA's TD.

Now we will have to endure a year of listening to them say, "Well at least we played in a bowl game. Your team cheats," but at least we don't have to hear them talk about how they won that game!

Yep. They'll always chirp about something. That loss just makes it less credible than it would have already been.

26-21 should end all arguments, but unfortunately it doesn't. I just hope they get used to 8-5/9-4 because Hoke will be bringing them a lot of that over the next few years. Their 2013 class is sooooo overrated. There is about 3 players in that class that I would want on OSU and only 1, maybe 2 that I would trade their OSU equivalent for (Dawson for Gardner, maybe Thomas for Thompson).
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

Fucking NFL ruins everything.

Big Ten was 18-19 against SEC in BCS era entering today. Take out OSU's 1-5 and the B10 would have a winning mark.

Is that the Bowl record or all games?

CLowney: had my back to the TV and my casual-watcher wife's jaw dropped. Saw the replay. Was admiring until I saw the look-at-me pose. I'll never get used to that. Eff him. But I'd take him of course.

Gruden et al is why I watch with the sound off, or way down. Normally, with the Browns or Bucks,we know a lot more about what is going on than the announcers do. And I cannot stomach listening to an ex-bengal or steeler announcer gush about them. Nope.
Oh, and with the sound down, it is pretty easy sometimes to read lips of the coaches. That's pretty entertaining, and gets missed with the announcers talking over crowd noise.

Bowls. Record is now 19-22.

B1G has had 26 teams in BCS games since 1998, SEC 25.

Last six years has belonged to SEC. Overall, it's even.

LSU has two really good, 1st round talents at DE... and Clowney is better. He's got the strength/motor of Sam Montgomery and (almost) the speed of Bark. Mingo. It's retarded. Someone is going to get a great player next year at the top of the draft board.

I am just hoping that the Browns can quit failing at losing games next year and get up to the #1 spot. Seriously, WTF is the point behind going 5-11? Play the young guys, lose all your games and go get Clowney in the 2014 draft! He is a once a decade player. He could have been the #1 overall pick coming out of HS based on potential alone. He is like the LBJ of football, his physical talent is so obvious that not even a Cleveland franchise could fuck it up.

Seriously, 23.5 TFL and 13 sacks as a sophomore in the SEC? Another year in the weight room and another year of coaching? That kid is going to be devastating next year.
