    SOD needs time to work on his tan. Needs some contrast with those Pumpkin Pants.

    I hope some of us read the caption on the picture of Pinkel with his team’s little trophy…and note the score.

    WTF? No GTU attendence numbers?

    Of course the Big Ten and Pac-12 want a true “plus one” model. They benefit from the fact that much of the national media considers their bowl to be the biggest one, so naturally the winner of that game gets a lot of consideration for being one of the 2 best teams in the country…even if, prior to the bowl games, 2 other teams were largely considered the best 2 teams.

    They’re attempting to milk their bowl’s history for all it is worth. I don’t blame them but I sure as hell don’t agree with putting in place a model that rewards it.

      +1. The big ten, for all intents and purposes, is behind the game and gets way more credit than they deserve or have rightfully earned the past 10 or so years. They remind me of Notre Dame.

    The Mumme Poll is enjoyable and is set up idealistically, but would fail everyone’s objectivity test. How can any fan get to midseason and not be influenced by the surrounding polls? You would have to be in a vacuum, read every thing happening in every game and pick the relative strength of a team while ignoring what you have read contains poll rankings(every writer wants everyone to know how their teams rank out of local pride) intentionally or inadvertently. Erstwhile, how can they write about an uninteresting game and expect readership? We can’t escape it. It is pervasive in all college football fan psyches.

    Nebraska’s idea of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic is sick. Aksarban is the limit to their out-of-the-box thinking that goes on there. They are still revelling in the 70s. How the hell did this dinosaur miss the train for two years? His “Rose Bowl above all CFB” Trojan Horse he walks around trolling behind him to every playoff conversation should help put the Big10 in their own dumpster fire. Fuck’um. We don’t need’um. Let’s all go play for the NC and let them wallow in their bowl-of-choice game.

    Start the “Cut’um Loose” conversations. Now.
