    The best thing nebraska did on or off the field last year was ask to play that UT Chattanooga game knowing full well that the B1G would say no. Ended up painting them into a corner and have to look dumb changing the rules for Ohio State at the end. Much like the rest of the league decisions over the last 9 months though, exposing clowns at the top.

    Eleven Warriors filed a public records request. Under state law, Ohio State was obligated to release them emails and texts.

    This one is actually a PR goldmine for our AD Gene Smith and President Kristina Johnson.

    I was concerned when Johnson was hired that she would face the same critics that previous President Michael Drake faced. He was a decent administrator and OSU undeniably raised its academic profile under him, but he never really understood the very public role that having high profile sports meant in college administration.

    As things like the Meyer/Zach Smith scandal erupted, Drake did not know how to handle the PR aspect of it. He was also black, and there absolutely was an under current of racism among his critics.

    Karen Holbrook had critics in her five year tenure and similar misogyny undercut there.

    Johnson came in as an openly lesbian President of OSU. She introduced her wife at her first press conference.

    I thought it was going to be like the scene in Talladega Nights where Girard walks into the bar and starts playing avant garde jazz on the jukebox.

    Johnson has been incredibly media savvy so far, as it relates to sports. This latest round of emails and texts are getting great play among alumni and fans.

    The fact that nevadabuck went all in anti-Johnson as soon as she was hired makes it even more beautiful.

    Counterpoint - our game against Colorado is on the Pac 12 Network. At least we could actually watch the game if it was on BTN.

    There’s no denying there was a racist problem going on but these last guys are straight looking for a paycheck. Especially Wadley, he’s still trying to say the Iowa coaches cost him NFL money and that the university was a terrible place. If it was so terrible then why beg the staff to give your brother a scholly.

    Trivia Time: The Big Ten has three schools who are among the top 20 nationally for longest current streak without an AP Poll appearance in any weekly poll.

    Who are they and which season did that school last appear?

    Rutgers 2012

    We have played Purdue 7 times since they were last ranked. We’re 4-3, with one of our wins in OT (12) and another when we didn’t score an offensive TD (08).

    They are kryptonite to us.

    Yeah, we were ranked before losing to a Michigan State team that had zero draft picks. Was kind of thinking Purdue snuck in at some point under Brohm and that Nebraska could be the “gotcha” third team.

    In the last 50 seasons there are 5 Big Ten teams who have finished the season unbeaten, but did not win a share of the then applicable AP, Coaches, BCS, or CFP title.

    Name them.

    There may be more, I’m making this one up.

    1973 Penn State does not count because they were an independent.

    The last one is from the 90’s but it isn’t 1997 Michigan, who won a share.
