Actually, there is only room for 3 more B1G championship trophies in the front window at the WHAC. He's almost there.
What strikes me as particularly funny is the main gist of the article, that it's unthinkable to force a team to trek out to California for a game... Um, the B1G has been doing that for the Rose Bowl for generations. I know Floridians may be spoiled with the locations of most bowls, but welcome to the real world that everyone else inhabits. Fans must travel for elite bowls, get over yourself.
I have been surfing through quite a few B1G blogs today to gauge the reaction to the news from across the conference and have seen an overwhelming attitude of "screw tOSU".
To me, this is just a tacit acknowledgement that their teams will never be in the National Championship picture at any time in the near future. The perception of the B1G has no bearing on your team if they aren't in a position to need to be compared. It's the worst sort of defeatism: "If I can't have it, burn it all!!"
I think that's the reason you see more folks at tOSU and MSU blogs rooting for the conference to clean up this bowl season and folks over at mgoblog and BSD saying they hope the Buckeyes get waxed. It's sour grapes, but sadly misplaced.
Columbia actually has lower average lows in November through January than Columbus.

Oh, he didn't fall off the face of the Earth. He's now the athletic director at UNO (University of Nebraska - Omaha), an athletic department that doesn't field a football team. Very prestigious.
I actually caught myself thinking during that telecast that I'd rather have Beth Meeeyowins call our games than these two. The game itself was fairly interesting, but the announcing was just horrid.
"I can't wait to get the heck out of here."
Thanks for that site.
It won't let you italicize forum names, but there was definitely sarcasm there. It's only fair to point out when TWWL posts positive things.
I couldn't believe it when i saw it accompanied by a sincere article.
It never occurred to me that I may have been duck-season-rabbit-seasoned.
All of the complaints about empty cupboards have been in the past tense, I didn't realize he was still raiding their pantry.
My favorite one as well. You can just picture the bulged veins, flushed blotchy skin, and flying spittle. Perfect shadenfraude.
I chose them as a secondary rivalry, though in reality I view them more of a tertiary rival. There is level one: ttun, then level two: Staee (or whoever is in the way of a B1G CCG, then the nits.
heismanpundit.com, which went on hiatus as of yesterday because the guy who ran it now works for the Heisman Trust, had
T.J. J.T. listed as number six.
6. J.T. Barrett, FR, QB, Ohio State
Barrett was off this past weekend. As its stands, the redshirt freshman is on pace to have the best season for a quarterback in Ohio State’s long and storied history. It’s looking more and more like the Buckeyes will be 7-1 when they take on Michigan State in East Lansing. If Barrett continues to play like he’s been playing while leading OSU over Sparty and some of the other candidates in this race slip up, he might have a shot at being the third-straight redshirt freshman to win the Heisman. He’s currently on pace for almost 4,000 yards of offense and 45 touchdowns in 12 games. Beat Michigan State and he’ll be able to add to those numbers in the Big Ten title game. If Ohio State is 12-1 at that point and primed for a playoff spot, Barrett’s production could propel him to the Heisman.
Season Stats: 88 of 133, 1,354 yards, 66.2%, 17 TDs, 5 INTs, 186.3 rating, 276 rush yards, 2 TDs
Season Pace: 3,249 passing yards, 41 TDs, 662 rush yards, 4 TDs.
FWIW here's the beat writer for NJ.com's #hottake of tonight's action.
Ohio State squeaks out a 56-17 win. Rutgers needs to turn the page quickly with Nebraska on deck.— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) October 18, 2014
Welcome aboard the Championship Express!
Sounds like something Jameis would say.
Outstanding effort in every phase of the game!
Way to go Buckeyes!
We got flat-out outplayed in both the 1st and 4th quarters. Wow.
Best of luck to Sparty in the Rose Bowl.
