Don’t rely on your Dad and Phil Parker to bail you out. Ask us stuff yourself.

Keeping it in the family: Wrong for European monarchies, wrong for offensive football.

Hello. Football happened. Ohio State lost a non-playoff game for the first time since 2018, potentially leaving the B1G without a realistic playoff shot unless they run the table and the rest of us get our shit together to help them look good. Iowa is ranked 122nd and 125th in offensive YPG and YPP, but 5th in the AP. I’d say that’s unsustainable, but their kinfolks at Northwestern finished well into the 100s last year and in 2018 so maybe relying on the other team to screw things up 4 times a game to allow you to get to double-digit points is sustainable.

Meanwhile, Rutgers, Purdue, Maryland, Michigan State, and Nebraska have 2 wins each. You’re all doing great, babies. Keep fighting the good fight and maybe more than 1 of you will get to 6.

Anyway, that’s enough complimenting mediocrity. Wait...Go Gophers. Now that’s enough complimenting mediocrity. Ask us stuff, because we love answering questions when we have good ones. Football is back and fun and weird, just the way we like it.

Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow.
