You forgot one.  

We yell SEC, mostly because Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12 has too many letters and some numbers in it and we can't spell that

I like having a rival that's worth the effort. I want them to burn to the ground the week before Thanksgiving, though. But anyone that can beat an SEC team is OK in my book  Yes that's right, I hate the SEC worse than scUM

If apple pie isn’t your thing, you can also do this with sliced ripe bananas - you’ll just want to filter it through a cheese cloth or coffee filters into a pitcher and then back into the bottle prior to gifting. Banana-infused bourbon is sneaky good and universally appreciated. It's the J.T. Barrett of infused bourbons, basically

Still cracking up over this line.  Who knew JTB4 was bourbon-esque!

I've actually seen Beatallica in concert. They opened for Dream Theater a few years ago and the Newport. Great show.  Pretty fun stuff actually

Other names I've thought of that would be ahead of Herman

Ed Orgeron

Lane Kiffin (Doubt it...)

Doug Nussmeier

I agree. I think we can take them. If we played like we have the last couple of weeks, man, it wouldn't be close. I've watched them a few times this year. They are not a top 5 team IMO. Bama or Miss St would tear them up. Oregon would make quick work. I think we beat them by 20+

I don't think this hurts us that badly. Whisky will still be ranked in the B1G CG. It's still a quality win. Sure it isn't ideal, but it's not the end of the world.

.....And Wisconsin just scored another rushing touchdown
Comment 15 Nov 2014
Not scared, but the cat is the real deal. Almost 400 yards rushing today. I think he earned his trip to New York today.

Reese's is the best IMO, but I've recently become fond of O'Henry due to the Halloween mini's pack we gave out this year

FWIW ESPN lists him with 4 stars
Comment 13 Nov 2014

I think Wisconsin is underrated and as such, I think they will win Saturday. Abdullah is a great RB, but he's not going to be enough. 

That said for our sake I hope Nebraska wins and makes it to the B1G CG

I had similar thoughts this morning actually. 6 seems to be a good number to me, Power 5 + 1. That could be ND or a playoff buster each year. Conference champs get a bid of course. You would have to win a conference to get in if you are not ND, their schedule speaks for itself, though I'd prefer they join a conference. Then you can seed them and match them up however you want. 

For reference I believe the NCAA tourney does this (someone correct me if I'm wrong). It gives a chance for a team to prove something even if they come from a conference that as a whole did not do so well, but has a strong enough showing over all.

Give the first two ranked teams a bye and run a quarterfinal game, a semifinal, and a final. We've added 1 week; another one will not hurt anyone.

ESPiN has been called out. It was blatant corporate influence on their part and now several other media outlets have dogpiled on the cable behemoth. Now they have to live with what they did and correct their actions. Seeing them start to back track from their position and do the right thing by reporting in an unbiased manner is a good thing.
