My guess is provided tOSU wins out and the Mitten Brothers don't lose any others, it matters very little. The difference will be negligible. The real question is probably which would give everyone more satisfaction, beating an undefeated MSU or a 1-loss TUN looking to make a playoff push of their own?

The problem is that leaves faux news stations, biased newspapers and unreadable websites. The only place to get straight up news with nothing but the facts is the evening news on broadcast. Comedian or "journalist" doesn't matter because it's all editorialism not journalism.

I hope you're right. But after watching watching Western Michigan run it up the middle for what seemed like 10 yards a pop in the second half last week, I'm not sure he is.

I like the Fightin' Fitzgeralds in this one. I feel like this is Northwestern's year to make a run at the West. Also, after the past couple of weeks I find myself less impressed with Minnesota's "moral victory" against TCU, and they seem like  a team that lives on the edge.

I respectfully disagree.  First off I believe he was legitimately playing injured for much of the game.  I blame that somewhat on the coaches for not at least bringing him out for a few series to really find out.

Secondly, I don't think a player who is protecting himself for the NFL is going to try to bowl over a defensive player like he did on that touchdown.  That seemed like all effort to me.

I know we should be happy with 12-0 followed by 12-2, and I agree that those are seasons that 95% of the college football world would love.  But heading into the new playoff format this team will be much better of if they can turn into a 12-1 type team who beats big opponents like some of our upcoming OOCs and drops a game that they shouldn't to what people view as an inferior team.  

Take the '98 team for instance.  That team lost a game they never should have.  But if you put them in a championship game with anyone that year I would have had about 100 times more confidence in them than I would have this team at 13-0 on a 25 game win streak.  I guess my point is that it's not all about the record.  What this team accomplished the last two seasons was great, but to view them a great or elite team might not really be correct.  Not bashing, just my two cents.

I don't think you should be down voted. And Braxton may be a very good college athlete, but as far as QB goes I think he's hit his ceiling.

Ironically at the beginning of the year I actually thought he had improved as a passer but I think that part of his game regressed as the end of the season came.

Unfortunately I just don't think you can rely on him to win the game with his arm.  I know he has but those seem to be sort of "miracle" plays (ala Wisconsin at the Shoe the season before last).
