Awful game to watch
No. I meant i think Iowa should be up 17-3.
I just want more Bo P meltdowns
I've seen this before, B1G matchup where the underdog team you're rooting for gets out ahead but finds a way to lose in the forth quarter. Northwestern vs Nebraska, PSU vs Nebraska, MSU vs Nebraska and it has happened two or three times with Ohio.
The one thing going for us is that if we make it into the 4th quarter, the wind will be with Iowa.
Lets be honest...how many of us thought it would even be this close? At least we have a shot.
After we hung 42 on Iowa on only 6 possessions I assumed Nebraska would blow them out of the water as well.

Does not matter. The beatdown tomorrow would prevent you from going to the (fake) B1G championship game anyway.
You bore me.
Good for Big Ten. Now at least we will have one team ranked at end of the year in Coaches Poll. We need NU to represent in CCG and Rose Bowl to give B1G back a shred of credibility with voters. Their UCLA loss looks better and better each week too.
OSU has looked like shit against Purdue, Indiana, ans Wisky but you think you will blow out Michigan
Don't get ahead of yourself. Even if you beat Wisky, you've probably got Oregon in the Rose Bowl. I'd take Oregon any day, even if UM was facing them. That style of offense is just too much.
Another way of looking at it if NU beats Wisconsin.....a team that hasn't won the Big 12 for a decade comes to the B1G and wins it all in its 2nd year in the conference.
Pretty sure he's an Ohio fan.
Ohio played Kent State today - you need to be worried about Ohio State.
Why do the Buckeyes play in the Horseshoe which is called Ohio Stadium and NOT Ohio State Stadium?

Wisconsin back to the Rose Bowl if they can manage to complete a few forward passes.
Todd.... what the hell was that? I know Iowa wasn't playing for anything besides pride, but that was some of the worst execution I've ever seen late in the game. Is it time to start thinking of going in another direction? Ferentz and the staff looked inept.
I hope Iowa keeps Ferentz for a few more seasons so that we can beat up on him and his team.
The way Michigan is recruiting bodes well for our future.
Ya to be honest Im not too mad that theh won't have to see Oregon in the Rose Bowl. It's kind of a cheap feeling winning the B1G this year and to get there only to get slaughtered by the Ducks wouldn't be cool. We've struggled with the spread and runs to the edges all year.
If Stanford wins tomorrow at UCLA, then Oregon has no chance of making the Rose Bowl.
In fact, Oregon's hope would be either an at-large bid to a BCS Bowl OR the BCS Championship game if ND loses @ USC and Florida loses @ Florida State.
Don't forget how they looked vs MSU
Yes, but we didn't look so great against MSU either.
very much agreed. Iowa looked completely inept in the short-clock situations both at the end of the 1st half and at the end of the game. And I get that there were extenuating circumstances (the wind) but the playcalling looked just atrocious the entire game. The low point was when Iowa gained 6 yards on 2nd and 10, and I said to myself, "Oh good, they just enough yards to run the ball and not get there on third." Sure enough, they ran what looked like a read option (which, I just don't even...) and got stuffed for a half-yard gain.
Well, well, well. Looks like back to the Motor City Bowl for you boys, no? Birds of a feather (MAC talent) flock together. After tomorrow's beatdown in the mecca of college football, your 8-4 season will officially be a failure. Let's see Jabba the Hoke sell that to 5-star recruits. ;-)
