@Sparty is never easy especially considering PSU is coming off a tough game with Michigan while MSU is off a bye, Indiana is 5-2 and probably has the second best QB in the conference (Penix was hurt when we played them) and Minnesota will be an undefeated team at home. PSU is a fake good team and I think it's more likely they drop 2 of these games then it is they run that stretch undefeated
True... Bucks by 30
Michigan looking competent

Fox Executives are pissed
Good for Illinois. I want to see them be relevant again
What a shit take. Let's give up our personal liberties because... prohibition is so effective lol
Lol This site would turn on Burrow so fast if we actually had to play him in the playoffs
Cool? I've never looked to Paul Finebaum for valuable insight on the CFB world, I'm not going to start now just because he says a few nice things about us. Bama always fixes their deficiencies. It's about a week 15 matchup, not a week 6 matchup. This team has room to grow in all aspects, as do all the contenders.
Take out 1 quarter and Ohio State loses half of their offensive production. Not a model for success against a Nick Saban team. There's work that needs to be done
This is easy. Bama gets left out. The only real controversy would come with 5 undefeated teams like a Notre Dame or Pac 12 school thrown into the mix
It's 100% the NCAAs fault. They should have gotten out in front of this 10 years ago. This could have all been avoided
Have you paid attention to college athletics? Hate to burst your bubble but major universities are already paying players. Remember the entire FBI bust? And What came of that as of NCAA penalties? Nothing. It's time to bring paying players to the light so that it can be regulated (i.e. "salary caps"). And Let's not confuse pay for player likeness as salaries, a player making money from an institution based on how many jerseys they sell of that player is not the same as a blank check for attending the university. And Let's also not act as if college athletics are the bastion of parity, there have always been tiers of programs and that will exist regardless of players making money.
Big Ten after dark - 10:30
Will never happen. Guaranteed. By the time this law goes into affect (2023?), my guess is that the NCAA will allow players to make money off likeness. Especially as they were considering this before the cali law. I could also see other states pass similar laws if that isn't the case. Regardless, the NCAA isn't going to ban California teams, that was a threat to prevent the bill from passing. No way they put their bottom line and existence into threat by banning the largest state in the country, they'd make a California exception before banning them. The NCAAs reign of terror is over and they now will he held accountable.
Urban Meyer to Rutgers. Kill the machine he created
1A) Ohio State
8) Penn State
9) Notre Dame
Wisconsin's lack of 4-5 stars will show when we beat them by 20. If they were to play Bama or other elite teams in a playoff setting, they'd also get blown out. I like Wisconsin football but lets be real
Nebraska taking moral victories down 48. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
Ryan Day has the drive that only new HCs have. He hasn't become complacent yet. After Urban won a national title here, you could immediately see the drop off. Now It wasn't hige, mostly due to the level of talent that seperates Ohio State and other schools but it existed... the refusal to fire coaches, becoming less involved/more CEO, etc. It's why all the bad losses under Urban came after 2014. Ryan Day doesn't have the luxury, he hasn't accomplished anything yet. That sense of urgency + OSUs talent level = good results. It will be whether or not he maintains it that shows if he's a good coach or not. It's also important to note that Urban's infrastructure is still here from the football operations side of things, its all set up for Day to be successful
FWIW online classes are easy to cheat in
For perspective, the IU and Cincy lines were in the midteens... easy money. I prefer betnow, they have more lines than any of the major betting sites and they come out pretty early
LMAO This is the one boys, blaming Jim Harbaugh's dad...
This will be Harbaugh's last year... calling it now
The difference is that Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day have an impressive track record running an offense, while Tim Beck and Ed Warriner never did. I don't see the offense falling off a cliff like the 2016 team did. I guess it's possible that the defense falls off a cliff, but what you see is usually what you get. 2017 Defense was bad all year, 2016 defense was good all year, 2013 defense was bad all year, etc.
