Stanford is a prime example of a big time academic institution and a heightened focus on excellence in athletics. Cal is a great school but this guy is off his rocker if he thinks the university doesnt want premier athletics programs.
About what I expected. Im not sure how this is a poor reflection on the B1G. UCLA is a very good team, ASU is also a very good team. Michigan didn't care and it almost cost them but they still won. UCF is a better team than PSU so that loss is not a surprise. For the most part, yesterday happened as it should have. Amazing how Nebrasksa just laid over and died after that Martinez pick six. The pollsters won't be impressed with the Cal win but I think they should be. I refuse to turn on ESPN or look at their website except for NFL specific coverage today, Im sure there is some sort of story about this and how the B1G is horrible. Itd be an interesting statistical analysis to see how often ESPN has had a top story regarding the B1G's horrid performance on Saturday, its almost like they forget Tennessee and Kentucky are SEC teams.
I think Collins is going to finally get us off the NCAA tournament schneid. Big Ten basketball is in good hands and could be the most dominant bball conference in the nation for several years.
It's all good. Gundy's a Man, hes 40.
Not going to be surprised about Les Miles being a scumbag.
This just further proves how unreliable and unprofessional close to all forms of sports journalism are nowadays. SI, you are stupid.
I think Wisconsin will get slowed when they face an actual defense that knows how to adjust to the run. Wisconsin will have to beat most of their B1G opponents through the air, and I dont see that happening. I do think they will be a really tough game for anyone who plays them but I havent seen anything from them yet that really shows theyll push OSU for the division title. The game in Columbus will be a close one because Wisconsin will eat up a lot of the clock, but as of now, I think OSU can win that game by a couple of TD's, maybe 17 points even.
Cheers all around, except you Indiana. If people didnt notice, Cal had a really had time with Portland State. I think they are looking ahead to you guys. I see Michigan and Wisconsin are doing their usual 'Show up in September' theme.
Does the Lebron name plate have to do with donations? I hear he gives quite a bit to the basketball program.
Wonder if alcohol was involved. I have to believe it was.
