Michigan State QB has Harsh Words for Bowl System, Big 10

Michigan State QB has Harsh Words for Bowl System, Big 10
Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins is a very accomplished player. He re-wrote much of the Spartans record book for passing, and winning. So he has a lot of room to talk. Tonight’s inaugural Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis was an instant classic. It featured a lot of scoring and lead changes, and came down... Read more »

Here we go- the inaugural Big Ten Championship game- a play-in game for the Rose Bowl. Something MSU has has been playing for and focusing on for awhile. This year in East Lansing, it’s all about “P4RB” meaning “Prepare for Rose Bowl” for the Michigan State Spartans. It’s a slogan you’ll find displayed on t-shirts... Read more »

Northwestern Drops to 6-6, Michigan State gets 10th win in Evanston
By beating Northwestern today 31-17, Michigan State achieved…well they actually achieved all the big important stuff before arriving in Evanston, IL. Last week, they secured a berth to the inaugural Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis.

Northwestern Taking on #10 Michigan St. Brutally Honest Preview
Uncharted territory for the Big Ten this week. What happens when a team has already clinched a league championship game berth, but has nothing to play for beyond that? It’s the situation the Michigan State Spartans are currently in, as they’re bound for Indianapolis, but their only ticket to the BCS is if they beat... Read more »

Bowl Games Wish to Avoid Penn State; Full Big 10 Bowl Projections

Bowl Games Wish to Avoid Penn State; Full Big 10 Bowl Projections
“They’re radioactive,” a bowl official told Herb Gould of the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday. “[Bowls] wanted Joe Paterno ‘s last game, not a nightmare.” The Nittany Lions finish the season at Ohio State and Wisconsin. The OSU game looks like a toss-up, and the Badgers will likely destroy them. That season ending tilt is looking like... Read more »

Big 10 Bowl Projections: It All Starts with the Wisconsin Badgers
When looking at the Big Ten conference standings, and trying to figure out the hierarchy for the college football bowl system, I can’t help but think of one of my favorite lines from the ’80s movie “Fletch.” “I’d say we’re in a gray area.” “How gray?” “Charcoal.” We do know this however- the Big Ten...

There are only two times when doing a power rankings can be fun- way early in the season/preseason, or when everything is jumbled, disorganized chaos and blah. Doing a power rankings when the hierarchy is clear cut is a practice strictly for centrist, vanilla losers. In the current Big Ten football world, mediocrity, blahness, national... Read more »

Big 10 Football Power Rankings: Rap MCs Edition
Can’t leave college football alone the game needs me. Biggee Smalls once said that he raps about the ghetto because that’s what he knows. And…”if I worked at McDonald’s I’d be rapping about Big Macs and fries.” You write and talk about what you know and live. And I know Big Ten football. “Banks is... Read more »

Big 10 Power Rankings

Big 10 Power Rankings
One of the main storylines in the Big Ten entering this college football season was all the dual threat quarterbacks. Well so far, I’d say it’s really only Wisconsin‘s Russell Wilson and Nathan Scheelhaase who fit that bill. Michigan’s Denard Robinson did throw for over 330 yards and 4 TDs, but he is an average...

B1G 10 Football Season Predictions

There’s four good teams in the Big Ten this season and five more that could be good or just blah. You can call it parity (just don’t call it PARODY, I HATE when people make that mistake, it isn’t Weird Al Yankovic playing college football here) or you can call it mediocrity. Expect a lot...
