I'm surprised to see Hackenberg going 1 overall after his sub par 2014 season. 

A lot of Big Ten flavor in this mock. 

Comment 06 May 2015

I was surprised that the atmosphere was so weak for the Rutgers game too but Big Ten football fans will never get excited for games against Rutgers. It just doesn't feel right having them as a conference opponent.

I am a football fan so I want to see Big Ten football improved with expansion! Rutgers might be a better academic instituition than WVU but West Virginia still has good academics with several top 100 ranked programs and being top 15 in Rhode Scholars and they DEFINATELY have better athletics!

Comment 06 May 2015

I am a football fan so I would rather see the Big Ten football product get better with expansion, not worse. 

WVU has good athletics, good fan support and several top 100 academic programs in medicine, engineering and business so I don't think WVU is as far behind academically as you think. 

Comment 06 May 2015

You can try to convince yourself that Delaney made the right decision by adding these schools all you want, but would you be more excited for Ohio State vs WVU or Ohio State vs Rutgers...

all im saying is WVU and Missouri are both fine academic instituitions with far superior athletics to Rutgers & Maryland. 

I was at the Rutgers game at The Shoe last season and it was probably the worst atmosphere i can remember at an Ohio State game.

There is no guarentee that adding teams with better athletics and fan support wouldn't result in a bigger TV deal for the Big Ten! People want to see good football, they don't want to watch Rutgers vs Illinois. 

Comment 06 May 2015
I highly doubt Rutgers being in the Big Ten played a significant role in Kareem Walker committing to Ohio State.
Comment 06 May 2015
The best business decision would be to add better athletic programs. The SEC didn't strike a network deal with ESPN by adding below average football programs like the Big Ten did. And let's stop acting like Maryland and Rutgers are Ivy League or something. WVU and Mizzou both have nationally ranked academic programs to go along with superior athletics and fan support. Mizzou adds the St Louis/Kansas City Market as well.
Comment 06 May 2015

Let's get real, adding Rutgers and Maryland isn't helping any school in the Big Tens recruiting except for Rutgers and Maryland! Players want to play in the biggest and best games! Secondly, I get that Rutgers and Maryland have good academics but so do Missouri and WVU and their academic programs would only get better with the BigTen money.

Penn State will be unbeaten when they come to The Shoe. Check their schedule. Rutgers actually had an electric atmosphere for their night games last season against ttun and Penn St but their atmosphere was bad for day games.
Comment 22 Apr 2015

I'm still not completely comfortable with Maryland and Rutgers being in the Big Ten. I would much rather have Missouri, West Virginia or Louisville. I get that they give the Big Ten a new TV market but they're average to below average football programs. 

Comment 22 Mar 2015

Tough loss today but at least we were able to win a tough game in the tournament this season. Hopefully the guys coming back and the incoming freshman have a championship level offseason. 

Hopefully Russell comes back to compete for a championship next season but if he doesn't I'll be his biggest fan in the NBA. 

Comment 20 Mar 2015

Go out there and play with a chip on your shoulder, Bucks! 

We have to make sure that the best shooters are taking the shots in this game. Shannon Scott had a great second half today because he stopped shooting and started driving and distributing. When Sam Thompson drives he should look to dish it for a 3 instead of forcing a shot. 

If this team gives Arizona their best then they can win. 

Comment 15 Mar 2015

Giddens will give us a guy that can protect the rim defensively which we haven't had since Lauderdale. 

I think A.J Amos could be a good player from day 1.

Comment 15 Mar 2015

We can't start slow in this game. If our heads aren't fully invested from the start then VCU's pressure will rattle us and we'll be clawing back the rest of the game. We have to match VCU's intensity for 40 minutes. 

Shannon Scott and D'Angelo have to be ace ball handlers. Play smart, no careless turnovers. Don't let VCU get out and run on us, make them score in the half court.
