Remember back when he committed. Glad Wavy Dub has lived up to his potential.
I'm going to the game, too. I'll be the one in the Ohio State shirt.
Okay Gus Johnson saying "Big Noon Saturday" really does sound like "Big Nude Saturday"— BUM CHILLUPS (@edsbs) September 14, 2019
Yeah I agree with this. Obviously it's not gonna be a repeat of OSU - Michigan State 2017 but this is the game that comes to mind...
Alumni club of Islamabad is gonna be the place to be!
Wow this is gonna be the biggest, nudest Saturday of all time.
I know you're in Rosemont a decent amount for work now. Any chance you'll be at the game Friday night?
South Carolina had beaten a P5 opponent going into the game. Northwestern has not.
Northwestern is bad. Like not even Purdue/Iowa bad, but bad bad.
Penn State almost lost at Kinnick in 17. Penn State - 24 Iowa - 17
That's why I'm saying you have to compare predictions with predictions. It's not necessarily "bias" if everyone thinks one team is going to win, but popular opinion.
To an extent I agree with your methodology, but I think it's more of an apples to apples comparison if you compare predictions to predictions.
For example, maybe a better comparison would be whether or not they predicted a bigger margin of victory for a given SEC team than the Vegas spread? Ie) In the B1G vs. SEC matchups that the SEC lost, they consistently picked SEC teams to cover moreso than the general public/Vegas bettors. This would be really time consuming and difficult to do, though.
LMAO keep up the great work NCAA. Really maintaining the integrity of the game with this one! /s
H/t to IowaBuckeyes for the following tip on a "Northwestern Trip" forum post a few weeks ago. Just bought my tickets and looking forward to it!
The Chicago alumni club is hosting a pre-game bash three blocks from the stadium.
The tailgate starts at 5:00pm and your ticket includes food, drink, and entertainment. There will be a domestic beer truck, craft beer bar, wine bar, and several tailgate food options. The tailgate will show the game on TV for those not going in the stadium.
Northwestern's defense is comparable to MSU's in terms of SP+. But I'd say the Bucks still get between 42 and 49. Over.
If we're limited to teams in this hypothetical I'd say Penn State had the best chance in 2017 and they completely blew it. Decent quarterback, generational running back, solid defense. The opportunity was there.
The Shutdown Fullcast is one of the best CFB podcasts. It's about 10 minutes game recap/preview and 1 hour worth of back and forth between Spencer Hall, Ryan Nanni, Holly Anderson and Jason Kirk.
They have some good gimmicks every year too. They'll do some live shows you can attend; think they did one at the Ann Arbor Public Library over the summer. And last year during the halftime of a game they had a "podcast" via dial in conference call.
The ultimate long game. Genius move by the master.
Completely agree. But don't know if we'd get so lucky to pull them.
Yeah I agree I think just like Hyde he'll be like a mid second rounder.
LOL if she thinks (even mild, as you described it) trash talking doesn't happen everywhere I don't know what to tell her. The dumb shit that got thrown my way at Purdue last year was much worse than what you described. It's all part of the game.
Hope Minnesota enjoys its time in the Top 25 cause it's not gonna be there for long.
Shit do not love that Young is hurt but he should be fine before the Northwestern game
Lmao there you go Lewerke
