Michigan State gave Oregon everything they could handle for a while. Oregon threw on a garbage TD that made it look worse than it really was.

I'm sorry, but so far you can't tell me a 1 loss Alabama, Florida, Auburn, UGA, A&M who played 5 or more ranked teams don't deserve it, but MSU or OSU does when they play 2-3 ranked teams.

I don't know why you're jumping to this conclusion. I don't think I indicated that at all. I'm just saying that Michigan State looked far more impressive against their opponent than Michigan did or Ohio State is.

They still lost by 19 points, and it doesn't really matter if the last one was a garbage TD, when playoff selection time comes people aren't going to look at that, it will just be the score, and even with that, they lost by double digits. It's still early, but the Big 10 won't really have any more opportunities to prove through out of conference wins that they deserve to be in the conversation by losing all of these big out of conference games.

I don't give a damn about the playoff selection process or the Big 10's chances of having a team in it. Are you guys reading phantom text on my posts that I can't see?

Mich St is still a solid team, but the rest of the Big 10 is awful.

Tech hung on for the big win in the Horseshoe, finishing off a beautiful day for those of us who can't stand the Big10. The only down side is that Notre Dame won...

PSU struggled against Akron. Purdue lost to Central Michigan. Northwestern lost to Northern Illinois. Iowa barely beat Ball State. Nebraska beat McNeese State.

Pretty good article that hits on the subject.

I agree with you. Right now looks like Michigan State is the strongest B1G team, hands down. If I am a fan, I would not be disappointed with their performance. They gave everything they had but Oregon is too good.

Ohio State is done. No way they go undefeated against the B10. They've got Michigan State, Michigan, and Penn State ahead, all of which could beat them. That also does not count any other "slip up" games where the Bucks could fall. To me the loss last night put a fork in Ohio State as a legitimate "contender" for the Title. Any 1 loss SEC team or team from the PAC-12 (say Oregon wins it; Stanford, USC, UCLA, Arizona State) or Big 12 (maybe) could beat them and would be more deserving.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Big 10 yesterday. The only thing that could have made it better is if McNese State had beaten Nebraska lol. I was sorry Michigan lost though. I still think Michigan State is the best team in that conference I'm just not sure how much that matters.

Wisconsins schedule is pretty cake from here on out. They could throw a cog in the works in the end.


Other than that, it was a pretty embarrassing saturday for the B1G. Luckily, I only care about Michigan, so they'll bounce back. Unfortunately, they'll win the games they are suppose to, probably win 9 games, and Hoke will save his job. That's the worst thing that could happen.

You don't like Hoke's cheerleading on the sideline, Storm? :raz:

I was surprised Michigan lost. I didn't think ND was that good. Credit to ND for starting out 2-0. Slightly surprised the cheating scandal nonsense did not get to them. Was it an off night for Big Blue?

Storm
09-08-2014, 06:09 PM
Although, we did manage to outgain ND and hold the ball longer than ND. But 5 turnovers will pretty much negate that every time.

IBCW

Ah, I see...so the play calling wasn't bad....just alot of turnovers?

Storm

The play calling was ok. QB and O-line play were terrible.

WouldE
09-12-2014, 11:03 AM
O-line is OSU's problem too. Worst O-line I've seen there in a long time, maybe ever. It's that bad. Even if Miller was healthy they still lose that game because of the OL.

Storm
09-12-2014, 11:51 AM
I don't know. With Miller back there, I don't think Beamer would have been blitzing on every play like he was. And Miller wouldn't have been heaving those arm punts either. But yeah, O-line is a big issue for osu as well.

I'm with you going team-by-team. Heck, I don't really like Penn State, but they are 23-21 against current SEC members, including bowl games. That is a nice record.

EDIT: For those interested, here is the breakdown.

vs. Alabama 5-10
vs. Auburn 1-1
vs. Florida 0-3
vs. Georgia 1-0
vs. Kentucky 3-2
vs. LSU 2-0
vs. Missouri 3-1
vs. South Carolina 2-0
vs. Tennessee 3-2
vs. Texas A&M 3-1
vs. Vanderbilt 0-1

Michigan 10 - Miami (Ohio) 10 in the second quarter.

Indiana lost at Bowling Green, 45-42.

Washington is rolling Illinois right now, 44-19.

Maryland lost a tight one to WVU, 40-37.

Yeah, the B10 isn't looking too hot right now. All it can hang its hat on is Ohio State's blowout, which seems to be THE headline. :lol:

EDIT: I'll add that TCU is about to romp to a 30-7 win over Minnesota.

I think South Carolina is a little better competition.


Michigan looked a lot better in the second half though. Shutting them out for a final score of 34-10

There's a better than average chance the last time Mizzou played Penn State was the '80s or earlier. Old records don't mean much. It's like me bragging about Mizzou' s record against the SEC when we came into the conference.

Which raises the question, what does Penn State and Johnny Manziel have in common?



0-2 vs LSU.

never in a million years would I have picked the B1G to knock off three top 10 teams in one day. Nothing short of amazing.

I've been as harsh a critic of the Big Ten as anybody, but the fact is it now has two of the three best coaches in America in Meyer and Harbaugh. Dantonio is criminally underrated, and we all know how dangerous James Franklin is. That's a league with some very good head coaches.

I could see yesterday being the start of a revival for the Big Ten, even though I still think there's some demographic and economic factors that will hurt the conference in the long run.

With Harbaugh at Michigan I think the top 4 teams [i.e., OSU, Wisky, Michigan (I think Harbaugh makes them a top team again) and Michigan State] could be better than the top 4 SEC teams over the next few years. But, I think the next 5-8 of each conference goes to the SEC. Mizzou beat a decent Minnesota team, Tennessee is taking care of Iowa, etc. Right now the mid level SEC teams like Arkansas, A&M, Mizzou, Tennessee, Georgia are all winning their bowl games. I don't see a top to bottom revival.

Will the Big 10 be 5-5 if Iowa loses? The SEC will be 6-5, with Florida still to play?

You think UGA and Mizzou are middle of the pack? They're probably going to finish as the second- and third-highest rated SEC teams.

Yeah, but they play in the EAST dude!

MKfromPA

Georgia could compete in the West. IMO, UGA is not a "middle" SEC school. I classify them in the upper tier of teams. Just because the 'Dawgs play in the East does not mean they are "middle ground".
