Hoegher's 2013 Previews: WISCONSIN BADGERS

So work has ramped up considerably for me in the past few weeks. Because of this, I've had much less time to sit down and write these things (also, I'm trying to interact with girls of various...

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: MARYLAND & RUTGERS (abbreviated)

Fair warning: there is little to no comment being added here. I don't want Maryland and Rutgers here, and they aren't even Big Ten teams at the moment. Nevertheless, I recognize that they are going...

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS

Yes, I know it's Sunday. Hoegher had a bit of a stressful week at work (mostly resolved now) and had to put a few personal projects on the back-burner. So you get a Michigan State FanPost slightly...

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: PURDUE BOILERMAKERS (for realz)

I'm not sorry at all sorry if I offended any Boilermaker fans with the previous Purdue Fanpost. It was an easy gag and I had to go for it. I'm just happy that it got as many recs as it did :) With...

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: MINNESOTA GOLDEN GOPHERS

So ideally: this part of my FanPost would be taken up by something relevant to the previewed Big Ten team. Unfortunately, I was schooled as an engineer, and writing/communicative skills don't come...

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: IOWA HAWKEYES

Normally, I have a hard time getting my hate up for Iowa. My dad's family lives there, which means the best oatmeal cookies known to man originate from there (thanks Grandma!). Black Heart Gold...

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: INDIANA HOOSIERS

Well, I made an incorrect guess as to what team would be previewed by the OTE staff this week, but by golly I managed to write this thing within the time limits of the evening*. Go me. And...

FanPost

Hoegher's 2013 Previews: ILLINOIS FIGHTING ILLINI

Hey y'all! So my goal is to align my completely accurate probably incorrect previews with the regular OTE coverage. It's currently Sunday when I'm starting to write this and my assumption is that...

Hoegher's 2013 Season Previews: A PRIMER

Hey y'all! Some of you may be familiar with me, others may not. For those that aren't: I'm an alumnus of Wisconsin and currently live in Madison. Because of that, I've been able to enjoy the fruits...

Hoegher's 2012 Season Reviews: THE SLIGHTLY MOLDY UPPER CRUST

I was thinking of something to say and then Jesse had this to say recently: These graphs look pretty, but... sometimes they just seem like they are stating the obvious (you know, like the part...

Hoegher's 2012 Season Reviews: THE MIDDLE MISH-MASH

This has nothing to do with football, I just needed something to open with. Are any of you familiar with the TV show "Once Upon a Time?" It's an atrocious viewing experience. Numerous plot holes,...

Hoegher's 2012 Season Reviews: THE DREGS

With the season over and over 200 days until the next kick-off, I've got to get my football fix somehow. I thought I'd do a season review for each Big Ten team, from the bad (Illinois, for example)...

Hoegher's Rankings: WEEK THE FINAL

And thus ends the college football season. I'm somewhat mixed about this. For one, Wisconsin wasn't the worst team this year, but we were still a far cry from the quality of the last few squads....

Last MAC-tion of the season! GoDaddy.com Bowl Open Thread!

There's still one last bowl game of the season (before the meteor, of course)! I intend to watch it at the least. For one, I'm so damn close to pulling off the win in the OTE Bowl Mania...

Hoegher's Bowl Predictions: BIG TEN DUMPSTER FIRE

Yes, there was a game last week. No, I'm not going to posted updated rankings to reflect that fact. Any changes were minimal, and therefore would be boring to talk about (Rutgers and Missouri...

Hoegher's Rankings and.... well Pick: WEEK FIFTEEN

First, a note on Bret Bielema: I grew up in Minnesota, cheering (futilely) for the Vikings. I never really was much of a college football fan (because I grew up in Minnesota and LOL GOPHERS), but...

FanPost

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK FOURTEEN

I want the Bret Bielema back from two years ago. The one that went for two "because the card told him to do so." That card would have come in very helpful on Saturday, just saying. ROSE BOWL OR...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK THIRTEEN

Oregon, I can understand. Stanford has a good defensive line, and we all know how you crumble when you come against something a that actually offers resistance (yes, I'm including Wisconsin's 2011...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK TWELVE

hoegher is sick. Unfortunately, I have this "real job" now and I've heard you can't just decide to skip. I miss college sometimes. The paycheck is nice though. Rank LW NCAA Team Conf Record ...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK ELEVEN

I'm very annoyed at Alabama right now. I thought that 8 pt spread in their favor was the easiest pick ever. Historically elite defense vs "meh" offense? MONEY. But noooooo, Zach Mettenburger had to...

FanPost

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK TEN

On the bright side: I didn't spend money to go to our homecoming game. Saved a nice $60 and instead got to sit on my couch and drown my sorrows in beer. Good decisions all around! TOP 25 AND BIG...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK NINE

Since I'm home from work early - and because I plan on making pancakes for dinner tomorrow - this post is happening today. Aren't you all so excited? I know I am! I mean... pancakes. That's really...

FanPost

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK EIGHT

Sorry for the tardiness, y'all. I've been exhausted this week. Not because of work, but because I've spent my evenings staying up late. So many shenanigans, you wouldn't believe. Or MATLAB...

FanPost

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK SEVEN

Guys, I have exciting news. Well, maybe just exciting for me. STILL. So I've been making these rankings for the past two years, but I've felt somewhat hollow in doing so. See, the real treasure...

Sticking With the Theme of Data Sharing:

This isn't mine by any means, but I have been using it to create rankings for several past years (got back to 1990 as of now, with some scattered years prior to that). It's not nearly detailed enough to include play-by-play data, but it's got complete game scores for FBS schools going back to the early 1900's, and that's enough for some. As I've said, I've used these to create my own (amateur, probably wrong) rankings and I can say two things based on that: 1) 1959 Ole Miss was every bit the juggernaut Bill C said it was in his "100 Teams, 100 Years" Varsity Numbers Post 2) Steve Spurrier was a dick, based on 1996 Florida's obscene offense.

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK SIX

Hey y'all! You know what happens when you start a real job? Suddenly, all your free time is gone. Also, apparently God decides that you're an old person now, which is the only explanation I have...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK FIVE

Two notes to begin this week: 1) I'm sure that many of you have been competing in the OTE Predictions Competition, via the ESPN College Pick'em Game. I would like y'all to take a gander way at the...

FanPost

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK FOUR

Hey y'all! You know, the Big Ten may not be the shining pedestal of quality football this year that we all hoped it would be. Non-conference embarrassments by Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan(s),...
