I still think the best case would have been that they won out the rest of the season, because we could still have played the 'we were young and inexperienced, still played a very good team tough, and are much better now' card (especially if we continue to win impressively). But now that they've lost a few, I agree with what you're saying here.

Honestly, after watching Nebraska so far, I'm not sure I want them representing the B1G in the playoff anyways. If they were the best the B1G had to offer, it wouldn't deserve a spot.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

I'd rather Nebraska wins. That way, whether we or Nebraska wins the B1G title game, a B1G team has a shot at making the playoff (assuming we each win out the rest of the way). If MSU beats Nebraska, then loses to us, I don't know that a 1-loss Nebraska gets in if they beat us. Plus, I just dislike MSU more. I know the primary concern is us, but I honestly don't see much a difference between us having 2 victories over 1-loss teams vs. a victory over 1 undefeated Nebraska.

Meyer coached Florida from 2005-10, so going by this chart, I think it's 3-3, unless they faced each other previously.

Comment 23 Sep 2014

I've posted this before, and I don't know about all the specifics of how the money and technical aspects would be worked out, but just speaking strictly as a fan, I would like for the B1G and Big12 to combine into one conference:

B1G NORTH

(1)OSU  (2)Meatchicken  (3)MSU  (4)PSU  (5)Wisconsin  (6)Nebraska  (7)Rutgers (for recruiting area)

B1G SOUTH

(1)Texas  (2)Oklahoma  (3)OK St  (4)West Virginia  (5)Texas Tech  (6)Baylor  (7)Kansas St

The other teams in the B1G right now don't seem concerned with competing in a major conference and don't have huge fan support or bring in much money, so we'll oblige them.  I know this would make it much harder for OSU, and all involved, but isn't that kind of the goal: to elevate the perception and actual talent and play of our conference? A move like this is obviously major, and who knows if even possible, but it would bring us up to an equal level with the SEC almost automatically.

The side view of football has always annoyed me. Like you said, the ball is snapped and the receivers all run out of view. It's rare, but I love when they show a play in the view from behind, like in the Madden games. You get to see a better view of almost everything, from the receivers running routes, to lineman opening up holes. I really wish they would go to this as the default.

Couldn't agree more. The current ones are one of the worst in team history. I'd be open to something new, but I also kind of like these ones:

Well, the last 3 teams in each division aren't exactly world beaters, but the point is to make our conference tougher and more respected, so yeah, it would definitely be a rougher path to the top. I get your point for sure, but I think we have too many Minnesotas as it stands.

Comment 20 Jun 2014

I see your point, but I have been thinking about something else for a while that I think would really increase the perception of our conference while also keeping Michigan with us and old rivalries intact. I think the B1G and the Big12 should combine and cut the fat:

BIG NORTH

1)Ohio State  2)Michigan  3)Michigan St  4)Wisconsin  5)Penn St  6)Nebraska 7)Take your pick from Northwestern, Iowa, Rutgers(for the exposure to the area), etc

 

BIG SOUTH

1)Texas  2)Oklahoma  3)Oklahoma St  4)West Virginia  5)Texas Tech  6)Baylor  7)Kansas St

 

Would definitely make for a crazy conference schedule every year and I think would make a big enough splash to make people think twice about which is the best conference. It would also bring us closer in line with the SEC in terms of attendance. OSU, Michigan, and Penn St beat any SEC team in attendance, but when you start to get to the lesser teams of each conference, they definitely outpace us by quite a bit. Whether this is realistic or not, is another thing, but I think this would be awesome.

Browns must be confident in Miles Austin's health. So long as he's ready to go, I don't mind letting Little go. It''s a shame because he is so athletic, but if you can't catch, you're about as useful as Braylon Edwards.

Yep, definitely familiar with target="_blank". Just not sure if they were going to provide a fix for you or not, so thought I'd offer a close alternative.

If you use Firefox, there's an addon called FireGestures that, among other things, makes it so you can right-click (and hold) on a link and drag upwards to open links in a new window. Still not exactly what you are asking for, but it's quicker than right-click, then "open in new tab." If you use Chrome, I know there's an equivalent, but I'm not sure what it's called.
