Here's to hoping for the first shut out!

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

what a shitty punt atleast he didn't get it blocked AGAIN.  That sack was total bullshit they rushed 3 guy!?  you have to roll out of the pocket and give him a target over the middle.  I'm getting sick of these slow starts.  Im going to start watching from the 2nd quarter.

Man oh man, is ole Beth annoying. Constantly saying wrong players and trying to guess where the spot will be before the ball is set. I hate it!!!

She's awful.
if she mentions the 2007 Illinois win again I'm goi g to look up her birthplace on Wikipedia, drive to the airport, buy a ticket to that place, fly there, rent a car there, drive to the center of town, and just start punching everybody I see.

Her voice is not qualified to do play-by-play...sorry - she is turrible!

Rod Smith!! Where did that come from?!

Seeing that TD passes just reminded me of when old Urban said he "liked to put up 70 every once in awhile."

Two long passes to Rod Smith downfield?...I love it.

Rod Jones was BEASTLY today. I love his size-speed combo. Hope to see him more on the field next year :)

Braxton should be dubbed "Houdini". That is all.

"Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Horrible officiating in the ND game right now.  That was in no way pass interference, then ND had an illegal pick/block on the TD pass (I'm multitaasking).

Holy shit, what happened in the ND game?  I turned it on and suddenly it was tied!

Golson scrambled for like an hour before deciding to pass it deep. Threw a TD pass on the next play.

My comment on the question of whether or not we were going to cover today below.  Next time you'll know.  :-)

In the five games the Bucks were favored by 16 points or more (UCF, CAL, UAB, IND & PUR), they have not covered.  I took the points and cashed in the four games after UCF. 
However, ILL is 0-5 in Big 10 play, are 2-6 overall with the two wins coming against W. MI & Charleston Southern and have not covered in any of their other games, including this past weekend where they were favored by 2.5 points again IN, a game in which I won and covered by taking IN with the points. 
ILL only averages 18 pts/game, but gives up nearly 31, and they also give up 4 yds/carry and 152 yds/game on the ground.  We are 7th in the country with 5.5 yds/carry. 
This is the first big spread I actually like for the Bucks and think they will cover easily in pure blowout fashion with a score in the 52-17 range.
Go Bucks.  10-0.

Notre dame is just having one of those seasons.

You mean one of those seasons where the refs win the games for them?

They certainly got all the breaks in that one. It's all moot anyway. They get into the national title game they're going to get murdered. Textbook overrated.
