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.

Yes, say hello to your new Big Ten.  The one where we added two teams just to add revenue, not to help the conference with its biggest hurdle – National perception.  The one that has imploded on itself, without the help of said two new teams.

You know, I had a bad feeling all week after the Navy game.  And I think everyone else may have too, because I’ve never been in a deluge of OSU fans filing out of a stadium from a win so quiet and subdued.  And the stadium served alcohol the entire game.
