    Reilly gives it to the 'skers

    Pretty humorous article from Rick Reilly of ESPN attempting to guide the Cornholers into the Big Ten. Of course, he takes some good pot shots at the 'skervs and others including Iowa.

    Best line - Referring to how other Big 10 fans might feel about the Huskers:

    You know what might impress them, though? Your bowl record. You're 24-23 all time. You better knock that crap off.

    In the Big Ten, that's just showing off.

    Re: Reilly gives it to the 'skers

    I have never seen a better description of what a "Michigan man" is.

    My brother in law is a Michigan grad and he and all of his buddies make me sick with their view of Michigan compared to other colleges. Snobbiest most delusional group of people I have ever met. Going to a game there was even worse, 109,000 condescending snobs.

    I hate all things Michigan if you can't tell.

    Re: Reilly gives it to the 'skers

    That Peen State line was also great: "Paterno thinks that the black shoes make his players look slower, but that's not true. Bowl games do."

    And I salute Reilly for his ridicule of Nebraska. Good read.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I wouldn't email him to correct him because it's obvious he was making a joke (a well deserved one at that) but there are a few big 10 teams with winning bowl records

    Iowa is 14-10-1

    PSU is 27-14-2

    Purdue is 8-7

    FYI Wisconsin is 11-11, OSU is 20-22, Mich is 19-21

    Re: Reilly gives it to the 'skers

    I liked the following quote:
    The Wildcats found a really good coach in Pat Fitzgerald, though. He's hot property. Get his email ready for when Pelini rips off a referee's arm and eats it.

    It's not delusional if their talking about the university. It's outstanding. I have no doubt that they're a bunch of ***holes but Michigan is a great institution in every way.

    Re: Reilly gives it to the 'skers

    I had no idea he apparently holds such contempt for the Big Ten. He really touches on all facets of how lame it is as a conference and how NE truly will fit in with all the pomp and circumstance that goes along with smelling your own farts because you like the smell.
