Wow, You are intelligent AND Hott.
I just meant anyone aside from fans.
Like rumors that it was an ACTUAL possibility.
Obviously, at this point in the day, I know he isn't going there.
Has anyone considered Herman to Michigan?
I'm sure it's a long shot but you have to think its in the realm of possibility at this point.
I hope this does not come to fruition, obviously.
Could be both actually. He was Saban's Offensive Coordinator from 2000-2004.
He was Bowden's from 2007-2009.
...Les Miles' 2005-2006
It was just a thought.
Kind of ironic timing.
Best of luck to Mr. Green.
...to make room for Damarre Kitt.
I'm going off the last TEN years of Big Ten bowl games. Every year we think so-and-so will beat so-and-so from the SEC and usually win 1 or 2 of those games... Rarely finish even .500.
I want to believe that Michigan State is good, but look at their schedule. They were blasted by the only 2 good teams they played. I'm not convinced their defense can keep up with a Baylor offense that has to be completely pissed off that the Big Ten was looked at favorably over them. MSU's offense can score points so I will call it a high scoring game, but I think Baylor is just too much for them.
As for Ohio State, I would do just about anything if it meant we could beat Alabama... I think we have every possible factor going for us; coaching, motivation, comraderie, appreciation for being in this position...---except for talent. Alabama has the better players, across the board. We will definitely have a chance in that game but we will need to play perfect. At the end of the day I just think Alabama will pull it off. I don't see them winning by 10 though. No way.
As for Tennessee, I'm the most confident about that game than any others. Tennessee will beat IOWA. IOWA is crap this year and even lost to a 2-win Iowa State... They have no identity and a perpetually underperforming head coach. Tennessee is up and coming, young, very talented, and will use this game as momentum going into next year. Iowa will just show up, enjoy their grab bags, and go home
I don't think Nebraska players are too thrilled about Pelini being fired and I can't see them showing up against a very good USC team.
Aside from those the others are toss-ups for me.
If I had the power, the B1G would go 10 for 10 obviously, but I have to be realistic.
ALABAMA vs. OHIO STATE ---- LOSS
BAYLOR vs. MICHIGAN STATE --- LOSS
ILLINOIS vs. LOUISIANA TECH --- WIN
NORTH CAROLINA vs. RUTGERS --- LOSS
BOSTON COLLEGE vs. PENN STATE --- WIN
NEBRASKA vs. USC --- LOSS
MARYLAND vs. STANFORD --- LOSS.
MINNESOTA vs. MISSOURI --- WIN
WISCONSIN vs. AUBURN --- LOSS
IOWA vs. TENNESSEE --- LOSS
I'm calling 3-7
Considering B1G teams are underdogs in 10/10 games, this is optimism.
If you look at his previous rankings on the right, it's a clear knock against Michigan's favorite rivals...
Ohio State drops a spot after a 59-0 win; while Mississippi State jumps 4 spots after not playing------while Michigan State drops 6 spots after not playing.
Too bad for him, shit like that only fuels the motivation for our players.
Caught in a landslide.
Just hope its not a team from the state to the north.
Ha. Enjoy playing Boston College on a baseball field.
Right, and Melvin Gordon and those seniors just decided to play the worst game of their careers on purpose just so these already rich institutions can just get richer...
There's no way Wisconsin ALLOWED that to happen.
Not to mention, the Big Ten only gets an additional $6,000,000 for getting a team to the Playoff... that's $500,000 that would go to Wisconsin. Not really a lot of money on this scale.
It's even easier this year considering Michigan is staying home!
I will be.
It MAY improve the perception of our loss to them, but a win for them will definitely help set the pace for them going into 2015... and we need next year's VaTech to be a good team so that our 40-point victory over them will be a "quality win".
I have to think Penn State, Illinois, and Minnesota will be favorites in their games.
I really don't expect Nebraska to show up against USC, with their coaching change and what not.
Really excited for these Bowl Games. All are watchable, except the Pinstripe Bowl (Like Johnny said).
I agree. But if they stick to their statement about erasing the rankings each week and starting with a "clean slate", then I think TCU will be 6th.
Ohio State will be 3rd.
Florida State - 4th.
Are you asking me to do that?
I frankly don't care about Helmet Stickers on a Monday, let alone the day of the Big Ten Championship Game...
Enjoy your evening Mr. FatPants.
Oh, my bad... I thought they were written explicitly to apply to Urban Meyer and Ohio State football players.
I stand corrected....
I didn't have to comment on this, but I felt compelled....
I'm not trying to stir the pot.
The Bill of Rights is the Bill of Rights.
It's the same Bill of Rights that gives people the freedom to publically disagree with the Bill of Rights.
Cowherd is such a chump.
He says crap like this all the time.
No validity to his statements... Ever. Just diarrhea of the mouth.
How would he enforce this rule?
It would be like "No Freedom of Speech" or "No freedom of religion".
Please excuse my idiocy, but I'm seeing a lot of "January 9 = Alabama"... What is the significance of January 9th in relation to Alabama?
Not only is Illinois 6-6, but one of those wins is over an FCS school.
At least Penn State's 6 wins are against FBS opponents.
No way Illinois should go to a bowl game.
