I love sports and watch pretty much any form of competition. If I understood Rugby, it would be my favorite sport. I am a Husker fan through and through and will cheer for them in everything (Did you know we have a successful women's bowling team? Now you do.) and hope our basketball team starts stepping it up a notch. College Football is amazing and really is the best season in all of sports.

Otherwise I cheer for the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Penguins, and New Orleans Hornets... So yeah, maybe living in small town Nebraska away from any professional teams made for some strange team choices... It happens.

Across the Empire: B1G FOOTBALL GAMETHREADS!!!


B1G Football is here everyone, so let's talk about it. It's been a while.

The B1G Power Poll: A B1G East Coast Rap Game


We expanded to 14 teams because we're now an East Coast Conference. Let's celebrate that with the glorious return of everybody's favorite column: The OTE Power Poll, now with more numbers.

Closing Arguments: Nebraska Cornhuskers


Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, let me paint you a picture of what will happen in 2014. It may seem a little redundant of me, but I believe this is a four loss team.

BTE: Team Speed Kills drops by to talk SEC


Year2 stops by OTE to talk SEC football, players to know in the upcoming year, the Wisconsin-LSU and Indiana-Mizzou matchups, and more.

Beyond the Empire: A Chat with Hustle Belt


With ten matchups on the slate against the MAC, it seemed appropriate we bring in Hustle Belt to give us the lowdown. Bryan Vance stops by to chat about the B1G-MAC matchups, MACrifices, autonomy,...

Pacific Takes visits OTE to talk Pac-12 Football


With the football season around the corner, Jack Follman from Pacific Takes stops by OTE to discuss the upcoming season in the Pac-12, the non-con showdowns with the B1G, players to watch,...

B1G 2014 // Urban Meyer, Mascot Wars, and Dessert


The Ohio State Potluck part II picks up where we left it yesterday by talking about Coach Urban Meyer, the great coach trade, mascot wars, and desserts. Another great day at the potluck.

B1G 2014 // The Ohio State Potluck


Where the Buckeyes bring the Sad Pizza, talk about XBrax, championships, winning streaks, Heismans and ceilings.

The Power 5 look for more autonomy


Let's talk about Power 5 Autonomy. Rather, let's try and think about how this is going to affect the Big Ten, because that's all we really care about, right?

B1G 2014 // Nebraska brings its own hate


An open letter to the Big Ten, with apologies for all grievances, past and present. If you didn't hate us before, I am guessing this will probably only help with that process.

Corn Nation visits: Fandom, Delany, & the New Guys


Corn Nation stops by OTE to keep B1G 2014 going. We touch on everything from how it is to follow Nebraska abroad since the move to the B1G to the craziness of the new eastern outposts. Fun was had...

B1G 2014 // The Nebraska Potluck Part II


In Part I of the Nebraska Potluck, we examined #Brands. Now it's time to jump into the Nebraska staples, non-steak category. Follow along as we look at Bo Pelini, fireable offenses, Bogatory,...

B1G 2014 // The Nebraska Potluck Part I


It's Nebraska week, which means we are going to the state where steak is a staple, corn is a vegetable, and various colors of beige reign supreme. If you thought to yourself, "Um, that doesn't...

B1G 2014 // Bo Pelini, Cats, and Moving Forward


With another incredibly angst-ridden season in the books, it's time to look at another year of rehabbing Bo Pelini's image. Can he shake the LLLL stigma? Or, is it just another bunch of cat...

B1G 2014 // The Nebraska Cocktail Party Preview


So you've decided to talk to a Nebraska fan at a party. I have just what you need to get through that. Looking at why Ameer Abdullah is awesome, how the defense looks to be better, and the reality...

B1G 2014 // I Wish I Could Hate Iowa


Seriously, there just aren't a lot of reasons for me to hate Iowa. I'd really like to start, though.

The Minnesota Potluck Part II: With More Hockey


Today we talk Jucy Lucy, hockey - obviously, a whole bunch of other sports, bad breaks, me trolling the world, and happiness in forgetting Sparty, No! It's another great OTE Potluck.

Dear Maryland and Rutgers, Welcome to the B1G


An orientation letter for the new guys. We're glad to have you, and here is a summary of who you'll be working with.

B1G 2014 // The Minnesota Potluck is Bringing the


An OTE potluck filled with casseroles, Jello, the Schedulegods, bowl games, strenghts and/or weaknesses, and obviously, how that all ties in with Minnesota. It's a smorgasbord of #B1G!

The Big Ten Presidents and Chancellors Speak


So a statement was released, and the B1G wants to use the BTN as its mouthpiece. Seems like a great day to have an Open Thread. The offseason, y'all.

B1G 2014 // The Michigan Potluck Part Two


This time we look at the defense, the superfrosh, the literal lack of caring, Honeybaked Hams, AD Brandon, Michigan Cherries, and Beer. A good day if you ask me.

B1G 2014 // The Michigan Potluck


A good old fashioned Midwest tradition filled with Coney Dogs, terrible offensive line play, new coordinators, questionable decisions, and that time Appalachian State won in Ann Arbor.

Let's Rehash the 2013 Northwestern Season!


I'm not sure I hate the Wildcats as much as others. However, that doesn't stop me from rehashing the 2013 season. Come on guys, this should be fun, right?

Welcome to the Smoking Room: Wildcats Edition


Where we are all probably left in the cold staring at those rich aristocrats from Northwestern through the window, only wishing we had ourselves a fine Cuban and some of that 40 year old Scotch...

Welcome to the Smoking Room: Hoosiers Edition


Pour yourself another bourbon, unwrap an Acid Nasty Pyramid Maduro, grab a plate a bacon, and let's talk about what it is a Hoosier exactly is.

B1G 2014 // Welcome to the Smoking Room: Illinois


Pull up a chair, pick out a nice cigar, and pour yourself a bourbon because it's Illinois week. Let's talk about everything Fighting Illini.

B1G 2014 // Welcome to the Smoking Room: Purdue


Where you can pull up a chair, pour yourself a drink, and talk all about the Boilermakers. Or, you know, where you can drink when you watch your team beat the Boilermakers.

The OTE New B1G Post-Spring Power Poll: MEAT


Do we really know enough about anyone to rank them? Probably not, but let's talk about it anyways.

On the Absurdity of NCAA Reform


The more the NCAA works to change the way things work, the more they seem to stay the same. On the proposed reforms from yesterday, the idea of the NCAA's necessity, and the absurdity of Mitch...

Jim Delany, Kind of a B1G Deal: An Introduction


This year marks 25 years with Jim Delany as the Big Ten Commissioner. An introduction to a new series on his tenure so far, and what makes him kind of a big deal.
