Considering IU, MSU, UM are taken up by their respective rivals I’d replace PSU with Wisconsin. We’ve had some history with them the last 10-15 years and it’s already a mini-rivalry of sorts.

I saw a Nick Goins and a Matt Keller reference. This has truly been a majestic thread.

I think we all went to the wells a little to often here. I’m griffin out helmet stickers anyway.

Indians fan here and we have our own great announcer but living in Cincinnati I certainly appreciate Marty. Listening to 700 in the Summer won’t be the same.

Obviously OSU and the NCAA licensed those gloves, which were made to do that very thing. Other conferences had refs the could handle players putting their gloves together to make a logo but B1G refs constantly overlook common sense.

Probably the same refs from the 2005 game against TTUN that called unsportsmanlike conduct on Santonio Holmes for diving into the endzone between a safety and cornerback.

The B1G has the worst refs but I was impressed that they stayed out of the way in the National Championship this year.

I thinks we can still talk about conferences because it’s fun to do.

For me, I’ve had enough of espn and the playoff committee falling in love with conferences. Two sec teams last year and the debate about UGA this year was a joke.

The media needs to quit debating conferences. It’s not about conferences anymore. National prominence is about teams. OSU, Bama, Oklahoma, and Clemson are currently the most consistent programs. It’s currently those four followed by new entrant UGA who may become consistent but in the past wasn’t. Notre Dame occasionally will be a playoff contender as well.
