|Farooq says "GO NOLES!"|
Future Big Ten schedules have been announced – If you care about this then you are a sad person. I read an article in which some dumb writer was complaining that an entire class of Huskers and Buckeyes would never play against each other (unless redshirting) because, you know, this is a rivalry all of a sudden. How can Jim Delany deprive America of another classic Nebraska/Ohio State showdown that we’ve seen a full ONE TIME over the past however many years and it wasn’t all that great the first time around.
Ohio State and Michigan are still consistent – Another unnecessary press release out this week is that these two teams will continue to play the most overrated game of all time at noon on the last Saturday of the Big Ten season just like they have forever except for the one time when both teams were good. Got it? Nothing has changed and it never will. Good.
Florida State thinks that they are wanted – It sounds like the Noles are tired of underachieving in the ACC every year and have set their sights on greener pa$ture$. This probably would have been a big deal before fans started putting FOR SALE signs in Bobby Bowden’s front lawn (my favorite act of fan vigilantism). Let’s face it; the Noles are nothing special anymore. They don’t sellout at home. They aren’t even an ELITE program in a bad conference. They have no swag. It sounds like they aren’t even going to bother asking the SEC since, I assume, Florida will try to block them anyway. The Big 12 is the rumored move right now. I don’t know, I haven’t been clamoring to see FSU take on K-State and Iowa State. Should the Big Ten get involved here and do some wooing? Academically, this would not work at all but who knows.
The Plus-One is going to happen – Since the Big Ten doesn’t want the Rose Bowl to ever die, the SEC and Big 12 decided to send their champions off to a bowl game of their own to play. The 4 big conferences are doing what everyone expected them to do. Yep, it’s coming.
Penn State rewards the Paternos – Is it just me or should all (or at least more than 1.5) of JoePa’s 13.4 million dollar pension go to charity or something? That’s blood money. That’s broken anal hymen blood money!
Steve Everitt might be right? – The name sounds familiar but I can’t place a face to it though. I guess that this Everitt guy played on the OL for Michigan awhile back and was pretty good. He went on local radio up in Michigan a few days ago and proclaimed that Ohio State was “stuck” with Braxton Miller at QB and that they were pretty much doomed. Miller is an interesting cat and clearly a polarizing figure. We’ve seen flashes of greatness. We’ve seen more shit though. Craig Krenzel says that he has perfect mechanics but he voluntarily wears cowboy boots so his opinion is meaningless. We’ll see, I suppose, but if you made me bet, I’d predict good but not great and less successful than TP.
Plenty of talking points today for this slow time of year. You aren’t getting better than this anywhere else on the internet. And that includes BangBus. Oh, and RIP Bill Stewart…I hope that Urban Meyer was paying attention.
