    Rushing the field after beating Michigan wasn't too bad either ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m not saying more articles on woman’s basketball wouldn’t be nice, but 11W is gonna report on the sports people most want to read. That’s why a vast majority of articles are football, and men’s basketball is easily the second most popular. Woman’s basketball is probably 4th or 5th at best, also being behind wrestling and hockey.

Indiana might have lost, but they proved themselves to me yesterday. I think they’re more deserving to be ranked than they were before. Shouldn’t have dropped in my opinion.

Penn St. still has everything ahead of them if they win out- conference title and playoff aspirations. It would be different if they were already out of it or were still undefeated, but they’re not. They’ll be focused.

Now I could very easily see them beating TTUN....

I agree with most of your points Bsk33, however, I just want to nitpick one thing that a lot of people say.

Not really concerned about the 6'7" or 6'8" size being that he has a 7 foot plus wingspan. You don't block shots and rebound with your head.

While there is some truth to this, a 6'10" guy with a 7 foot wingspan will be able to better rebound and block shots than a 6'7" guy with a 7' wingspan. This is because the 6'10" guy's shoulders will be 2" above the 6'7" guy's shoulders, giving the 6'10" a higher reach. While wingspan is very very important, it can not be substituted entirely for height.

A top 5 team going on the road at night and losing to a 15-25 team is very very believable, and typically happens at least one a year, if not more. Add in the fact that we will have a first year head coach, with a brand new quarterback, a mostly new offensive line and a defense that may still be jelling together/getting comfortable in the new scheme, and that’s a recipe for a tough game.

I don’t see hardly anyone on this site saying we are going to lose. Most of us are just aware that that could be one of our hardest games this year, and a close game or even potential loss should not be surprising.

The East has been much stronger of late, but the West is getting better. The thing about realignment is how are you going to do it? The geographic layout of the conference means East-West makes sense. North-South would be hard and mean a lot of travel because teams like Maryland, Indiana, and Nebraska would all be in the south. Leaders-Legends was dumb and shouldn’t be recreated. There’s no good way to realign.

Whether eight conference games or nine conference games, Fitzgerald believes all FBS conferences should be playing the same number of conference games in order to maintain shared data points across college football.

Fitz is right on here. Everyone should be the same. And until everyone else goes to 9, or the committee starts respecting the fact that we play 1 more conference game and 1 less scrub, it’s just hurting us.
