Big Ten Review: Rankings at the End of the Beginning

It seems as if everyone who is anyone is ranking the Big Ten these days. I'm probably not anyone, but who cares, I can rank teams, too.  After all, we're at a good point in the season to make some...

Big Ten Preview: Week 4

It's Brownie Point Saturday in the Big Ten. Take the kids to the park, mow the lawn, or take your girlfriend out on a date. Score points at home this week to help earn immunity to watch football...

Week 3 Review: The State of the Big Ten

With three weeks under our belt and every Big Ten team (save bye-week Illinois) playing a non-BCS opponent at home this Saturday before starting conference play in 11 days, it seems like a good...

 Hope you enjoyed the high profile games on Saturday (at least before nightfall) as we're three weeks away from the beginning of conference play. With a few exceptions this coming Saturday...

Big Ten Review: Week 1

An unspectacular opening week of football from an unspectacular week 1 schedule for the Big Ten. Purdue and Illinois were the only two teams to lose, and both lost by roughly what the guys in the...

Blue Ribbon Big 10 Predictions

The Blue Ribbon Yearbook came out with their conference predictions today. Their results are copied and pasted below. Little to no respect for the Nittany Lions, particularly on D. There's no way...

Try to Act Like a Professional

I was curious about where all the Penn State guys fell in the draft--and who got signed afterwards--so I looked it up. Please help on the free agent signings, as I'm sure there will be more of...

Penn State first in Big11 and second nationally in Green Power

12

The EPA released the results of their 2009-10 "College and University Green Power Challenge." We're second in the country and first in the big11. Only tough thing is that number one nationally is Penn, so we're second in the state, too.

Why you can't spell Nittany without NIT

 Curley's statement about another year of Ed made me comment about the fact that I think the problems with Penn State basketball run a lot deeper than the coach. I'm going to try to dissect those...

I'm surprised to hear myself saying this, but I like that the big11 powers stopped night games in November.  Something seems wholesome and right about playing the rivalry games tomorrow at noon and...

As far as I can tell, San Diego State at Minnesota is off the board. Apparently the days when the likes of Joe Gibbs, Marshall Faulk, and Brian Sipe used to don the Aztec uniform have given way to...

Luck be a Lady Lion

The best choice I made last week was not to boast about the fact that I'd gone 5-1 the previous week...because last week's 1-7 was just embarrassing. In each of the last two weekends, Iowa has...

Luck stopping messing with my picks

Rough one last week in this fanpost, which it's fair to say I'm not qualified to write--or at least no one should be listening to it. But I'm poised to break out this week...I think.  In a kind-of...

All the Big 11 teams play each other this weekend, except Michigan who plays host to the 1-AA Hornets of Delaware State. Like last week's PSU game, that game is off the board. You know, I'm getting...
