There's some real head scratchers on that list. Michigan at 4th best odds when they loose their entire defense. Nebraska at 25/1?!?! I bet even Scott Frost spit his coffee out on that one. I think PSU should at least be in the 50/1 group. Not that any of this matters...
Very nice work! Go STATE! Beat the Cats!
Honest question: Does the NCAA mandate that conferences with 12+ member must split into two divisions and that the teams in a division must play all other members within that division every year? Why should we be forced to play Rutgers, Maryland, Indiana, etc every year and only play Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, etc. only every once in awhile?
Wouldn't it be better for the B1G if they would just scrap the divisions and simply go to a rotational home-home series with all the teams evenly and have each team have a protected 'rival' opponent each year in the final week? Seems like a simple solution to me.
You can take the top half of the conference teams: OSU, PSU, Michigan, MSU, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska (they'll get their ish together at some point right?), string them out in a lineup, then place one of the bottom half teams in between each of the top half teams. Then you just play the rotation, going down the list. You'll play a good team every other week and a meh team every other week so you won't get these murderers row lineup where you'll play three top 15 opponents in consecutive weeks and get all beat up. Then go back to eight conference games. So you'll play four 'good' teams and four 'average' teams a year. I think the B1G went to nine conference games when they added Rutgers and Maryland to help boost the frequency of the opponent rotation on the opposite divisions. But if we can scrap the divisions then nine conference games won't be necessary anymore.
Then the two best teams will go the the B1G Championship like the way that the Big 12 does now. Let's be honest, the real B1G Championship game this year was OSU vs Michigan. Like the previous two years prior was OSU vs PSU. The conference championship game should be between the best two teams, period. It shouldn't matter which division they are in or if they already played earlier in the season.
Lazers! Lazers! Lazers!
Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy on Modern Family) did his Masters at PSU. He would be fun. Personally, I would like to see Lara Spencer. She'd be great. KMK is always awesome. But he's been doing a lot of PSU stuff recently so I kinda doubt they'd bring him back so soon.
Past players other than LaVar and Devin: Spice Adams and Adam Taliaferro would be fantastic.
Great video. Mark May is such a tool.
Ah. Thanks for the clarification.
Word is that Pitt wanted an extended series commitment, 6 or 8 games. PSU wanted more variety: VT, Auburn, WVU, Texas, UGA, etc. Temple was more than happy to take the two game home-and-home. So they got it. Pitt should've taken it and just be happy. Now they get nothing. So if Pitt wants to play, their gonna have to take an a la carte single at our place just like, say... Akron.
Pink and Black home uniform. Black were the blue is and pink where the white is. That would be pretty sweet.
Tarburton wears No. 46. Your posting of two defensive players wearing 45 threw me off.
Fire up the printing press! Need to start the IRON TOMMY t-shirt line.
I see James got his casual button down with khakis and vest look down.
I LOVE the Trace, Saquon, and Tommy backfield package. It's like a Dual-Threat Triple Option package (now featuring Barkley touchdown passes!). How do you defend that? Hint: you can't.
Oh what could've been...
Ugh... Nothing like getting home at 2am after a BS blowout non-con game...
I like the part were he picks the PSU hat over the two teams in the national championship. Nice touch. We Are.... Coming.
+10 Cool Points to whomever played California Love walking off the plane.
If PSU adds one more, it'll probably be Proctor. Kaindoh would be awesome though. The Webb / Swift duo would be sweet too, but if losing out on Swift means locking up Slade next cycle then I'm good with it.
