Week 1 in the Non-Con: What I Want

What should B1G fans want in the non-con in week 1? 11 wins is not too much to ask for.

The B1G Family portrait, updated with the additions of Penn State and Nebraska. These were portraits done in the 50s or 60s, FWIW. If Chief Illiniwek offends you, then this isn't for you. I found all of these pictures on the uniwatch blog. I took the Columbia Lion, darkened the jersey, and took the Nebraska Cornhusker from the Big 8. If anyone can do this better than I can, I welcome it. My photoshop-fu is poor. [BH: Bumped for awesomeness. Great work.]

Somebody autotuned Kevin Wilson, and it turns out it was IU Sports Marketing. Presented without comment [BH: Bumped. If Indiana is actually going to promote football, it seems like we should at least acknowledge them. And yes, this video would have been much more cutting edge if it were 2003, but still...they're trying. WARNING, GRAHAM: auto-tune ahead.]

B1G Sets Tiebreaker Rules

The Big Ten has set its tiebreaker rules to reach the B1G Championship Game. If two teams are tied, the head-to-head winner will go. If three teams are tied, with each having a 1-1 record in head to head play, the next steps will be division record, record versus the 4th place team in the division, record against all common opponents, BCS standings, non-conference record, random draw. And, the Big Ten has ruled that any team that is ineligible for a bowl game (whistles, looks toward Columbus, whistles...), will be ineligible for the Big Ten Championship Game.

ATTENTION FELLOW PROGNOSTICATORS It's come to our attention that the original Yahoo! Sports Pick'Em Off Tackle Empire Group is full. What can I say? B1G fans travel well. To accommodate our readers who still want to get in on the action, we've created an OPC overflow group. To join, do the following: 1. Head over to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports, and click on the "Join a Group" link. The Group ID for the Off Tackle Empire overflow group is 20129 and the password is still "sherman" 2. Create a name for your predictions set (I recommend just using your SB Nation handle), and make and submit your predictions for Week 1 five minutes before the start of the first listed game. I will combine the results of the OPC 1 and OPC 2 groups and create a Top 20 list as the season progresses. Happy Hunting.

This is what we're playing for. Kudos to the B1G for making this a tasteful and simple trophy. I dare say, the only thing that would have made it better would have been a family kneeling around the raised football while they looked at corn.
