Just...fuck.

Pretty much all that went right.

Good afternoon, everyone. Maryland found a classically-B1G way to drop their Battle for the Border, OSU romped, and Indiana...well, Indiana got MAC'd hard. Let's leave it at that. Hash over those games here and start breaking down an afternoon where the B1G could go 1-3 or 3-1 as easily as the other.

From DJ Carver (God rest his and C4B's poor souls) in the first thread:

Miami (OH) at Michigan || 2:30pm CDT || BTN

Similar to OSU, Michigan will look to take their aggression out on their cupcake opponent of the week. Look for Gardner and Funchess to bounce back with at least 2 TD connections.

Iowa State at Iowa || 2:30pm CDT || ESPN

So people tell me this is Iowa State's super bowl. Iowa, please play up to that level and don't make this a close game. Iowa State took it to KSU last week before bombing the second half, so this game could be a close one.

Minnesota at TCU || 3:00pm CDT || Fox Sports 1

TCU is heavily favored in this game (the line was at -14 as I type this), but look for the Gophers to run the ball down TCU's throat and keep this much closer. If Minnesota can find a semblance of a passing game, they could pull the upset.

Illinois at Washington || 3:00pm CDT || Fox

Illinois has looked shaky this year, but nevertheless are 2-0 going into their biggest OOC game against Washington. Washington will look to continue the offensive success of last week, so this game has the chance to be the shootout of the week. Second half/4th quarter Illinois, please show up all game.

Usual rules apply: no porn, no illegal threads, no being a jackwagon, etc. Let's talk B1G football and commiserate as one big masochistic family. I'll be in and out as the afternoon progresses, so idea who your mod is, but you never know when Candystripes is watching.
