Lots of talk of Georgia having 2 losses and Wisconsin 3 but no mention that the SEC has one less conference game.  So hypothetically, if the SEC played 9 conference game and Georgia's other game was a cross over with LSU, then GA and WI would be very comparable.  Both would have 2 losses to their conference champion and both would have an additional loss (SC and IL).

Guess the 2002 National Champions weren't 'good'.

"Well...I also hate them because they throw urine filled condoms at our band, but hey..."

not sure why the Big Ten has not addressed this.  I noticed that TTUN does not take their okay band to Happy Valley either.  This situation certainly aides them in their whiteout.

Actually there was.  He should have taken charge:

"we don't tolerate or condone DV"

"I have launched and investigation and I will report the findings to you (the media)"

"based on how UM has dealt with the 3 previous DV cases for the football team, I will assume that he did the right thing in this case and he will remain the coach.  If the investigations shows otherwise, I will address."

after the investigation...

"Based on my evaluation, the coaching staff and AD followed the proper protocol.  We have identified some weaknesses and these will be addressed by ..."

IT"S CALLED LEAERSHIP.  IT"S NOT THAT HARD IT JUST TAKES COURAGE.

It all depends on what you are looking for.  I enjoyed:

Olave's hands and legs catch

KJ Hill keeping his string alive.

Hausmann's first TD

A walk-on making a catch

Jalen Gill's effort on 2 catches

The walk on tight end hustling to prevent a scoop and score

So many 2nd and 3rd team defenders swarming to the ball

Mistakes that will create coachable moments this week and re-create the focus they need for the next 3 weeks.

I have a bad memory of a final regular season game.  The good guys are making a comeback.  They run left, left, left (pace is the tackle).  They ran right to mix it up and got behind down and distance and had to punt.  Mixing it up cost them the game.

Also, when Tressel was a first time OC, he kept running the same play over and over.  The head coach came over the headset and asked, "jim, don't you have any other plays."  To which he responded, "yes, when they stop this one."
