You know what else would have gotten us into the playoffs in 2015? Running Elliot in the second half against Michigan State.
For a split-second, I thought that was Snooki's leg.
Are you certain about the running back stat? I seem to recall that Ohio State had four guys eclipse 100 yards against Northwestern on November 4, 1989. (My 25th birthday gift was a trip to that game.)
It's not an obsession as much as it is gawking at a horrific wreck on the highway. Sure it's a gory mess, but there is something about human nature that makes us want to stare at tragedy.
Threat Level: the same as getting a speeding ticket on 315 north during rush hour.
I disagree. I can't imagine a better scenario than for Michigan fans to be all cocky in late November, only to be disemboweled on national television once more. If they suck, then they anticipate a beat down. But if they think they have a good chance of winning, or even expect to win, that's when the true pain of reality hits them.
I don't see Wisconsin's defense slowing us down that much. We have too many weapons, too many options. If our defense can contain Taylor (not easily done), and if OSU can get up early, then the Badgers are done.
I know that the "slippery slope" argument is a fallacy, but what if this ends up destroying college sports? What if it becomes this ugly, corrupt thing? Aren't there enough things to bet on besides college sports? Do we need to add a few more events besides the countless ways to wager on countless things that we already have?
