    Reason #8934 why I hate the Big 10...

    Because ABC is carrying the Penn State, Michigan State game in Minneapolis tomorrow. Which is great, because if they weren't going to carry it, I would have to watch it on ESPN. Because obviously if anyone wants to watch college football they want to be watching Big 10 games.

    Reason #8935 why I hate the Big 10.... is that we talk about the Big10 more than we do the Big12

    Minnesota isn't exactly Big12 country. Why would the cover the ISU game over the MSU-PSU game?

    Minnesota doesn't really care about BigTen football either. I live with three guys from Minn and only one of them knows all BigTen schools, and even he doesn't care about the football teams, he'd rather watch another conference play.

    Re: Reason #8934 why I hate the Big 10...

    I lived in Minneapolis last year for 8 months for an internship........and no one gives a **** about the Big 10 up there. They would rather see a good national game than Penn State taking on Michigan State.

    P.S. God Bless Joe Senser's in Bloomington!

    I'm with ya on this one MNclone. We're 3.5 hours from ISU and there's a lot of ISU support in the twin cities area - a heck of a lot more than PSU or MSU support IMO. What jayhawks me off even more is that I could watch the game if I was living in Alaska or Hawaii, but not here in the cities.

    Regardless of the fact that there is ISU support in the cities, Kansas is a BCS contender and neither PSU or MSU are even ranked - so put that other crapshoot on the Big 10 Network.

    Ahh well, at least we should be able to see the cyclone vs. gopher bball game Tuesday night on local tv.....and at least I got to vent about this too b/c I think this will be one for the Tivo archives.

    #8936 I hate the Big 10... Cause people like Southernhawk. He doesn't know the facts about people in MN but he always has to open mouth and insert foot about the Big 10 and the Squawkeyes...

    Here's to you... Mr. Uninformed Big 10 supporter. Next your going to tell us the Big 10 isn't down. And the Hawkeyes should be proud going 7-5 against the teams they faced this year...

    Here let me save you the trouble...

    Call the TV stations up there and let them know you would rather watch ISU than the Big 10. It wont help you tomorrow, but in the future, in situations like this, they may lean towards the ISU game, if they know they will have people who want to watch it!

    SoHawk always thinks and drinks the big 10 is the best conference kool-aid to the max!!


    The "Little Eleven" is so far out of it this year that they need to rename the conference the biggest kool aid drinking conference in the good old US of A!!!!

    Keep drinking the kool aid sohawk someday you will realize that the best thing that the little eleven has going for it is its...TELEVISION SETS!!!!...now that is funny...

    I don't understand why the Big 10 game showing in a state where the only D1A college program is in the Big 10, and, in fact, the only Big 10 school is in the only big market in the state is so disagreeable. If you don't like watching Big 10 football so much, get Minnesota to join the Big 12, or move.

    If anyone should be ******, it should be the Minnesota people who have to watch their horrible conference this year.

    The only thing that Minnesota people care about is Hockey. 1st the Gophers, then the Wild. Their wrestling team are the National Champions and I have never heard a word about them up here.

    I too think it is B.S. that they are not a carrying the ISU vs KU game. Kansas has not lost and is the #3 team in the nation and the other team is 3 hours south.

    "CHALK" up one more for attendance at Joe Sensor's in Bloomington, I think it'll be packed!!!!!!

    P.S. I see more ISU apparel in the twin cities than anybody except for the gophers and the badgers. It is officially part of the CYCLONE nation.
