I had the idea of a dynamic regular season schedule that which kind of does that.  It takes a while to explain but basically you end up playing the team nearest to you with an equal record.  (if you're 5-2 your next game is against the closest 5-2 team, unless you've already played them & other rules).  In a simulation I ran the best teams ended up playing each other a couple of times at the end of the year.

The BTN should start a segment specifically devoted to the other conferences outside the B1G & SEC to see if they draw interest away from ESPN.

If you're a Marshall fan - you might just start watching the BTN if they spend 5 min's or so a week talking about Marshall, IMO.  Same with Arizona State, Boise St, TCU, etc.

Part of a play was missed so they could update the South Carolina Auburn score during the OSU - Penn St game.

Illinois looked nothing like a team with those stats last week.

They stacked the box and slowed Minnesota's run game down, which isn't easy to do.  I've watched Minnesota bulldoze teams this year.

Minn 1st possession: 0 yards, punt.

Minn 2nd possession: -5 yards, punt

Minn 3rd possession: 48 yards, FG

Minn 4th possession: 2 yards, punt

Minn 5th possession: 2 yards, punt

Minn 6th possession: 38 yards, punt (Half).    That's an outstanding effort, defensively.  Minnesota couldn't beat man-man coverage, I hope we can.

I skimmed through that.  I had to read this line 3 times, though:

"Once, I saw Grandma punish Norman by standing him in front of the open stove, turning up the broiler flames, and threatening to burn off his dick. He was maybe 12 at the time."

they did not consistently exploit the area.

AAAAAARGH!  We need to stop doing that.  I think we had quick slants, outs, & curls that would have been open against Va Tech too.  Teams are forcing us to pass & they are leaving vulnerable areas in the short game that we should be able to make them pay.

Enough about Michigan State.  If we can't throw the ball against Illinois we risk losing to them as well.  They were putting everyone in the box against Minnesota and still covered man to man well enough to win.  Minnesota has a good run game, but not against 8 or 9, it seems.

The announcers were mentioning the harsh reality that Michigan had a bunch of 5 star recruits who were looking very bad against Michigan State's 3 star recruits.  They also said something about Michigan only having 2 or 3 NFL caliber players on the field.  Funchess (who was having a terrible game), A D-lineman, & Jake Ryan.  It painted a dim picture of your future career at Michigan as a player.
