Rutgers should beat Kansas, Kansas is bad, really bad.

Pretty sure Kansas is actually the favorite.

Correct, the Vegas spreads have Kansas as between a 2-4 point favorite, depending on where you look. That's basically the amount of points you get for home field advantage, so Vegas is saying the teams are basically even quality.

Similarly, in S&P+, Rutgers is #101 and Kansas is #105, so they're essentially even there too.

KU has a home field advantage?

Did you watch the video of the incident?  I'd be a little "fussy" too.

Just pissed me off that the game officials and replay booth official miss this sort of thing during game.  This should have fallen under targeting.

I did not see that prior to today - have to disagree with the Pac-12 .... that did not look like a clean play.

oops. I didn't know there was an actual reason other than feeling the pressure of losing his "first" game.

Yeah.  When I read his comments, I "heard" it in Saban's voice.  What he said definitely sounded like a Sabanism.  Does that make him a Sabanist?

I can only hope we continue to play top 25 match ups! Neutral site shared revenue, just get the team/school to sign! I would rather our program fall to a difficult out of conference opponent than stay afloat against Wisconsin's schedule out of conference! Or Oklahoma State as even less deserving example of respectable scheduling!

Wisky doesnt play any P5 teams non conference. Thats BS!  I dont wanna here them whining (again) at season's end.

BYU counts as a P5 team so they satisfied the B1G scheduling rules.

How many years to go before we schedule Bama during the regular season lol? At this rate, probably not until after Saban retires.

Bama would never play us.

Especially not if it was at the Shoe. There's practically an unwritten rule against SEC teams playing in cold weather states outdoors lol.

Maybe something was learned, I don’t know.

Find it real incredulous, the willingness to play the backup QB and early in games THIS year, when last year, neither Haskins or Burrow could get PT until real late in games, even the blowouts.

HS
Mikus_Aurelius's picture

100% correct about last year. Incredulous is a great word for it. 

I love Tate getting meaningful snaps though. 

HS

Ikr. But tOSU didnt want a Nebraska situation. 1 schollie qb on roster cuz everyone else left. Kids wanna play or they'll find a place that will let them play. Burrow drove 2 out of LSU.

I’d previously mentioned the “handling” of Tate being an effort to keep him “happy”.  Suffice it to say that post went over like a lead balloon; didn’t go over well at all.

I still stick by that theory, in particular after hearing that Martell got a nice amount of Fall Camp snaps with the ones, and it wasn’t necesssrily because the performances were that close.

"We're looking forward to this game. A great opportunity to go on the road for the first time and play a top 20 opponent. We're excited for the challenge," Day said. "They're a veteran group who's played in big games before. A lot of the guys on defense have played a lot of football. Their scheme is excellent. They don't hurt themselves. Everything we get, we're going to have to earn. So it's a big challenge coming up for us."

"Just pumped up and excited about another game, another week to show improvement on the football field. We like the position we're in. South Florida, our opponent this week, we have to be pumped up about that based on what happened last year. They got after us pretty good."

Better hope that weather turns the field into a mud pit because SF gonna get after it again coach.

Fitz you're a class act.  I hope NW gives you a lifetime contract, you deserve it.

Franklin get the lemon out your mouth and remove the stick from your buttocks.  Just find a way to schedule Pitt every year.

Allen got any RVs over there for sale?

Brohm needs a Boilermaker and a Brown bomber.

Dantonio WTH dude?! You got beat by your grandpa's team.

Canada nice country to visit.  Good syrup and bacon.

Ferentz for real? you're still coaching? yeah, yeah, yeah you did a number on the Buckeyes.  Sun shines on a dogs arse every once in awhile.  What happened after that game?  Buckeyes Big 10 Champions.

Chryst, I need a side of curds to go with coach speak and another Buckeye beat down.

Hairball, blah, blah, blah, blah.  I'm a QB genius that continually rips off other teams QBs and seemingly make them worse.  2Shea will be 2 beatup because scUM oline is 2 bad 2 compete against the Buckeyes come November. Take that 2 the bank.

*Jim Harbaugh, Michigan*

- "Yeah, Patterson is doing ok. Luckily for him, he was able to be developed by an actual QB coach at a different program. My strategy is to let competent coaches work with the young QBs and then promise them a starting job as well as opportunities for their family if they transfer to Michigan. So far, so good. Onward!"

- "we're also looking into employing that same strategy with offensive lineman as well. If there's any decent lineman out there that would like a starting job and guaranteed favors done for their brothers and fathers, @ me."

"We're excited to move on and get back into non-conference play."

Excited to get back to NON-Conference play.  Poor Chris Ash.  Great defensive coach. Just outmatched and overpowered by the rest of the B1G.

"...games will be broadcasted on..."

Apparently, it's once again time for my semi-regular informational post for 11W's writers and editors: "broadcasted" is only correct as the past tense of the word. Any present/future tense version is simply "broadcast."
