Big 10 Power Rankings: extremely glib edition
Doing a power rankings is fun and interesting in the beginning and/or middle of the season. Towards the end, it’s kind of useless. You just look at the standings.

Northwestern: Chicago's 5-0 B1G team

College Football 77 in 77: #76 Indiana Hoosiers

To say that Indiana University is a college basketball haven but at the same time a dead zone for college football is kind of like saying that porn star/stripper/target of Anthony Weiner lust Ginger Lee is a bit skanky; an obvious understatement. There’s a serious drought going on in Tom Crean’s hoops program, but unfortunately... Read more »

Illini Look NCAA Tournament Bound; Who Could Steal Their Bid?

Truthfully, if I again hear the words “enhance NCAA profile” or “NCAA profile needs enhancing” like there’s some sort of a erectile dysfunction drug to fix it, I’ll probably punch all the Viagra in the world.
