  • SPORTS MOMENT: OSU v Washington. Night game in the 'Shoe. Sat in 24C and watched Big Daddy crush UW with my father.

    Close second is having my 4 year old son come up to me and, in an effort to have me get ready to go somewhere, tell me I needed a bath because "you stick like Michigan"

Worked against UM last year - seem to remember they came in and covered it with posters etc.  My belief is it only works if you believe it works.  Kinda like most voodoo

This is the old SEC Football excuse.  "LSU/Bama/OleMissMiss St/Tamu/Mizzou" are not bad teams - if you you had to play "LSU/Bama/OleMiss/MissSt/Tamu/Mizzou" you would be 9-3 too.  If all of your Top 25 teams are in the SEC (and considering they put 13 teams in the tourney they are) then of course those teams are going to have more Top 25 wins/games played.

This was my issue as well.  I understand we won the first "true" national championship wearing the 14's but if the only difference between these jerseys and our regular kit is the grey piping on the sleeves are they REALLY that much of an alternate look?  Had to go for the all-black.  I still remember the fans pulling the "opposite white out" and making the stadium dark for the night.

Best: College -

OSU Division - Tressel for all the reasons above and for giving the student body hope after Cooper's reign of terror (as a 91 alum I never got to celebrate anything but a "win")

Non-OSU Division - Bear Bryant - yeah he was a bit older when I was a kid watching him but he still got the most out of the money paid to his players.

Best Pro -

Nick Saban - Alabama - hard to argue with his national titles but in a state with an absolutely terrible educational system for the head coach to have that much sway (and lets be honest his video editor probably makes more than the president at UA) is a bit much.

I say us.  We win out that means we are Big Ten champs with 1-2 victories over Wisky/Neb and a road win at Okla.  Meanwhile, Lou won't even be playing for its conference championship.

Easiest "pick" of the week was Iowa after giving Kirk an extension.  Talk for years had been how Iowa was "trapped" in the contract with Ferentz and how they could not fire him etc.  Then he has 1 good year and gets more years tacked on. 

As far as Hazell goes - I find it mildly entertaining to think that two former Purdue quarterbacks are starting in the SEC this weekend.
