Uh DJ, Ohio state has already played in the 19th circle of hell. It's called Ann Arbor...
Comment 11 Dec 2014
While the B1G has tons of money, there are too many entrenched powers that be that don't realize the game is changing. Alvarez and Wisconsin won't pay market value for their guys. Just because you were a good coach in the 90s does not male you a good AD. Hopefully Wisconsin wakes up and starts paying their assistants more

You think OSU fans are bad, have you met Phyllis from Mulga, Alabama?

I was surprised this wasnt a penalty and he wasn't ejected right there... you CANNOT put your hands on the refs, thats an immediate suspension

Whats the difference between a Michigan cheerleader and an elephant?

How do you make up the difference?

feed the elephant

Comment 21 Nov 2014
Spence coming back for Michigan and Wisconsin would help out immensely. D-Line of Boss, Bennett, Washington, and Spence is extra scary.
Comment 20 Nov 2014
Media is already salivating at the thought of a Meyer/Saban battle. It would be different if it was Texas instead of Baylor/TCU, it money still moves.

Using that same logic, if Mizzou wins out, that means Indiana is better than the rest of the SEC East. I don't think anyone would agree with that statement. You arguing the transitive property? Why is it only beneficial to the SEC? Indiana beat missou, meaning they are better than 7/7 of the SEC East (so far), the same indiana thats winless in the B1G. If you think OLE miss would beat Wisconsin because they are 2nd in the SEC West, then you must also agree that indiana is better than the entire SEC East, considering they beat the East Leader at their place. See what i mean?

Arkansas is a quality team? After they just snapped a 17 game conference losing streak? A&M got beat by Alabama bad, lost to Missouri, and looked terrible against their recent non conference opponent. Auburn got beat by A&M and trounced by Georgia (who is the best in the east but only plays 2 west teams). The limited ooc in the west division hurts comparisons.

Don't forget Vanderbilts loss to temple and somebody else I can't name. The problem is that most of the lower level SEC teams don't play power 5 opponents. Who did TAMU play ooc? MSU? Ole miss? When you have a smaller set of data, you see those items. In fact, if you look at the league that's most liked by the committee, it's the PAC12. They consistently play other conferences and have a 9 game schedule. The SEC east is so weak that the west looked so much better.

And if you watched the LSU-Wisconsin game, you would see that Wisconsin was the better team until injuries derailed them. If you had to bet on Wisconsin/LSU today most people would put money on Wisconsin. I made the percentage thing to show the percentage difficulty (never mind the overran of Tamu, LSU) .
Comment 17 Nov 2014

No ones arguing the SEC isnt stronger than the B1G. I also think you vastly overestimate ole miss, auburn, A&m, LSU, and Florida. Say each SEC team was favored 51% to 49%. Technically the SEC would win 10/10 matchups. but thats not a good strength indicator.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

The problem is the East division is so bad it makes the west division look a whole lot better. No one is arguing that the SEC west isnt a strong division, however i dont think it is as strong as last year. Auburn and LSU have regressed, and while MSU and Ole Miss are better, they arent top 10 quality opponents

I think the ability to downvote forum topics would be nice, after 10 or so downvotes you could effectively hide/clear all those multiple/duplicate/clickbait articles. The more downvotes, the faster offscreen it goes. I don't know if this is easily implemented... My brother works for facebook, i could always ask him about any ideas.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

I saw this same thing somewhere else, i'm trying to remember... it did point out a few things: the percentage of likes correlated with how close a pro-sports team was with the market area. The more pro sports, the less the college football likes. Which makes sense if you think about it. The real surprise here i think is illinois... though that could be because illinois has been terrible at football for so long.

LSU-Bama beat us in views? Not good... However, interesting that the osu Illinois game got the same views as last week's cvs game. If the B1G keeps putting out inferior teams this will hurt us in terms of future tv contracts
