I'm a Chicago Boy who fell in love with the White Sox as they were Winnin' Ugly. My cat was named Kittle. I still know every word to the Super Bowl Shuffle. I watched the Bulls win title number three at a high school graduation party and title six at a bar in Iowa City. I get a big smile on my face just thinking of October 26, 2005. I went to Iowa for Law School, practiced in Kansas City, and now work at the University of Alabama.

Beyond the teams listed, I root for the Crimson Tide, Royals, and whomever plays the Cubs.

Post Week 8 - 2011 Bowl Projections

Predictions for the BCS and B1G bowl games after eight weeks.

Uh oh, Indiana

33

Maybe Indiana's rebirth next year won't happen after all... Top quarterback recruit Gunner Kiel, who stunned a lot of people by committing to his home-state Hoosiers in July, is wavering on his commitment and plans to visit other schools, according to reports. Considering that Kiel was supposed to be a selling point as Coach Wilson recruited other prospects, this is a HUGE blow, even if Kiel ends up in Bloomington after all.

If you didn't see footage of the National Anthem at the Iowa-Northwestern game this weekend, you should watch (to the end to see the second message). Well done by the athletic department and the fans.

Jared Crick is PersaStrong...Out for Season with Torn Pectoral

8

Nebraska's shaky defense just got shakier. The Huskers have lost defensive tackle Jared Crick for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Coach Bo Pelini disclosed the severity of the injury Wednesday as the Huskers (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) head into their bye week. Crick, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound senior from Cozad, Neb., was seventh on the defense with 22 tackles this season, including a sack. He ranks eighth on the Nebraska career sacks list with 20, including 9.5 in both 2009 and 2010.

It's Been a Long Time

How long has it been since Iowa beat Northwestern at Kinnick? You don't want to know.

WIll the SEC Dive into the B1G's Dumpster?

110

Look, the nice folks at Team Speed Kills can talk about the greatness of the SEC all they want, but at this moment, a majority of their schools want to add Missouri to their ranks. That's the same Missouri that the B1G toyed with, thought about, and then threw out with the trash about 18 months ago. So enjoy Missouri, SEC. They're not good enough for us. They'll fit right in with you.

Mike Trumpy is also PersaStrong...

+

Sophomore Mike Trumpy will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in Saturday's loss to Illinois. Trumpy suffered the knee injury early in the third quarter and had to be carted off the field. He was leading the Wildcats in yards per carry, and was a key recipient of outlet passes. Here's to a speedy recovery.

Yeah, it was that bad. "Sean, when I was twelve I accidentally fed my golden retriever a bag of sewing needles. I watched that dog die. It was the worst of experience of my life until I watched this game."

It seems that Mr. Travis must have been a fan of the proposal that I set out yesterday. Quite a bit of his article looks familiar as he applies the B1G Quad analysis to the SEC...

B1G Sets Tiebreaker Rules

17

The Big Ten has set its tiebreaker rules to reach the B1G Championship Game. If two teams are tied, the head-to-head winner will go. If three teams are tied, with each having a 1-1 record in head to head play, the next steps will be division record, record versus the 4th place team in the division, record against all common opponents, BCS standings, non-conference record, random draw. And, the Big Ten has ruled that any team that is ineligible for a bowl game (whistles, looks toward Columbus, whistles...), will be ineligible for the Big Ten Championship Game.
