Another week, another set of back-to-back Illini and Bears losses. Damn, I missed football season. Maybe you used your precious time more wisely than hoping for perennially bad teams to win in spite of themselves. Maybe you went to an apple orchard. Perhaps you just went outdoors. If you did, good on you!

Here’s what you might have missed from OTE and from around the B1G this weekend.

From Off Tackle Empire:

GoForThree gives us ten B1G takeaways from the weekend and the rest of the “writers” punch in after week 2.

Dead Read analyzes the conference ticker in the weekly B1G Stock Report.

BuffKomodo recaps a frustrating Indiana loss to Louisville in this week’s In the Buff with Mr. Komodo.

Absurdly early bowl projections from MNWildcat, including his bold take for the Culvers Ithmus Bowl. You won’t get that kind of prognostication anywhere else!

Get your questions in for this week’s mailbag! We’ll read them; we might even answer them.

And if you need tips and tricks on how to properly raise your progeny to support your terrible football team, take a look at last week’s mailbag article.

It’s a goddamn shame, but the Hawkeyes finally passed the single-game and season Ferentz Line. Vaudvillain keeps tabs on the Iowa offense so we don’t have to.

And don’t forget to get your picks in for the Survivor and the ATS games. Thanks to Green 96 and Ziowa09 for running those contests!

Beyond the Empire:

The Only Colors with an update on former Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker’s firing.

A breakdown of Cade McNamara’s unpredictable passing through three games, courtesy of Black Heart Gold Pants.

From Maize N Brew, Jim Harbaugh plans to “implement new things” after serving his 3-game suspension. Perhaps not lying to the NCAA?

Land-Grant Holy Land with a breakdown of the Buckeyes-Hilltoppers game, by way of Tyler Childers music. I like Tyler Childers. I married into a Buckeyes family. Your mileage, however, may vary.

Finally, a poignant piece from The Champaign Room on Illinois, Penn State, siblings, and loss.

Have a good week, all. It’s almost Saturday.
