    They don’t seem to understand that we seriously expected 4-5 wins this year. This wasn’t crazy either - the over/under I bet was 4.5 wins.

    Penn State and MSU are going to change that Land Grant Trophy to a money tree:

    More Accurate Weekly B1G Self Loathing Rankings:

    1. OSU. Did not throw for 1,000 yards against one of the worst pass defenses ever assembled. Not even a double digit favorite against Michigan. The empire is starting to crumble.

    2-13. All other teams.

    14. MSU. All fans are elated to be enjoying a surprisingly successful season with renewed energy throughout the program. For the first time in a half decade things feel like they may be headed in a positive direction.

    I would hit OSU, Illinois & Purdue hard.

    Imagine Nebraska winning a 1-score game against Iowa. I hope it happens but it bucks a lot of trends.

    MSU is devastated by injuries including both starting WRs and its Heisman candidate at RB, Air Canada looks promising and Dotson against that secondary will be fun.

    Unsure how to feel about this. He is definitely the cause of a lot of issues with Nebraska and he turns it over a lot, but when he’s not turning it over he usually looks pretty good against Iowa’s D.

    TBD. Most fans are ready to see something new but Frost has said he would welcome him back and I am sure he makes pretty good NIL money as starting QB at Nebraska.

    His body has taken a huge beating over the years though so I could see him just being ready to be done, or his gf is a soccer player at K-State so some have suggested maybe he could grad transfer there.

    It’s bad and we’ll be very bad. Martinez is shitty but also sometimes very good and every time someone else has been behind him and played they’ve showed why they’re not starting over him. They generally also dick step but don’t have the upside.

    Iowa is now -1.5

    So 5 points toward Iowa

    Honestly the game is very intriguing. On a success rate by play basis, Nebraska is probably better than Iowa. But the two things Nebraska is the worst at is turnovers (at the worst moments) and special teams and that is how Iowa wins. It’s unfortunate he is out.

    B1G East: Ohio State/Michigan winner goes to the title game.

    B1G West: Wisconsin in with a win (Minnesota). Wisconsin also in with a loss and losses by both Iowa (Nebraska) and Purdue (Indiana).

    Iowa is in with a win (Nebraska) and Wisconsin loss (Minnesota), as long as Purdue (Indiana) wins.

    Minnesota is in with a win (Wisconsin) and losses by both Iowa (Nebraska) and Purdue (Indiana).

    Purdue seemed the odd one to me. Indiana is falling to pieces right now as Purdue seems to be playing well, OSU notwithstanding.

    You have the Purdue outcomes flipped. Minnesota needs Purdue to win to make it a 4-way tie for first in the division.

    And Iowa’s path is not dependent on Purdue. Iowa & Wisconsin are 6-2 but Wisconsin has the tie breaker. If Iowa wins and Wisconsin loses they are in. The outcome of 5-3 Purdue is irrelevant.

    As you said, Purdue is only relevant in the conversation if Minnesota can get in to a 4-way tie which would eliminate Purdue & Iowa (1-2 in the 4-team pool) and turn it in to a Minnesota/Wisconsin tie which would go to Minnesota.

    These both say Wisconsin and Minnesota are in if Minnesota beats Wisconsin, and Iowa and Purdue lose.

    Makes sense. Achilles are rare for a RB to come back from. A year of coming back in college and showing the NFL where he is at is probably in his best interest.

    NIL money is going to slowly shift kids back to school that aren't ready for the NFL but need the money. I like that.

    If Potts is back from injury too that is a formidable backfield if you can keep them all.

    Mo - preseason All America
    Potts - Averaged 130 yds/game as a starter, 4.9/carry
    Thomas - Averaging 107 as a starter, 4.9/carry
    Irving - Averaging 78/game since Potts went down, 5.2/carry

    Potts is a soph, Thomas a rsFr and Irving a true Fr
