Ohio State v Illinois, And No Looking Ahead

Listen to me now, but believe me later – the nerve-wracking, closer than expected Buckeyes win at Penn State was a positive.

Yes, it was supposed to be an easy one, another blowout, a quick romp against an inferior team.  It wasn’t.  It almost made your heart explode and alcohol sales in Columbus probably shot to record levels in the 4th quarter, but the experience was also a good thing for the team.

Bears fans are scratching their heads at how a team so talented could be so inconsistent and awful.  But now fans aren’t the only ones scratching their heads as many Bears players are asking themselves the same questions.

osu wk 6

It’s week 8 for the NCAA and that means we are already at the halfway mark.  Some teams have steadily improved week after week, some have stumbled or flat out fallen and some have, well, done both.  It’s a schizophrenic conference we’re all livin’ in this year.

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl-Stanford vs Michigan State

Yeah, the B1G is back, allright.  Back to about what you expected from it this year.  And perhaps, even a little worse.

Granted, there were some good wins.  But the losses were downright cringeworthy.  Penn State lost to Northwestern.  Like almost-got-shut-out lost.  To a team that has only beaten Western Illinois ALL season.  And they became a gif-of-the-week when two Penn State offensive linemen BLOCKED EACH OTHER.  Allowing Northwestern to tackle their ball carrier.

EVERY TEAM IN THE BIG TEN – except Michigan – WON THEIR GAME LAST SATURDAY.  SEVERAL BY BIG MARGINS.  AND ONE BEAT A RANKED SEC TEAM.

drops the mic

That team?  That team was Indiana.  Yes, the red-headed step child of the conference for the past decade or so brought not only the best win of the week, but the best non-conference win in the entire conference for the season.  The Hoosiers stunned the SEC’s #18 Missouri Tigers with a late touchdown drive to win.  Mizzou is the highest-ranked team Indiana has beaten since 1987, when they beat Ohio State at home in the Shoe.  This ends their streak of losing 36 in a row on the road versus Top 20 opponents.  Hoosier fans, I hope that in celebration you’ve drunk copious amounts of booze out of those new helmets – All.
