    Big Ten thru 3 bowl games

    Big Ten football performance through 3 bowl games:

    Wins: 0

    Losses: 3

    Average points allowed: 38.0

    Average yards allowed: 389

    Putting to rest all the nonsense about how Big Ten football is low scoring because they play great defense.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Big Ten thru 3 bowl games

    Easy now! Missouri was HEAVILY favored over Northwestern as was Kansas over Minnesota. so based on the odds I would say that things are going accordingly. Northwestern gave Missery all they wanted and misery was supposed to be playing for a BCS Championship this year. While the Big 12 is better on the top side i feel the other 8 or 9 teams are about even respectively. While I love the Clones i don't feel our chances are any better winning a Big Ten game this last year.....

    My heart wants to say we'd take Indiana, but my mind says that our defense doesn't stop them, either.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    It is hard to play step it up defense when you normally play against subpar offenses.

    I still think the Big 10 is a quality conference.

    Re: Big Ten thru 3 bowl games

    I don't see Michigan State, Penn State, or Ohio State winning, so I think Iowa is the Big Ten's best chance at getting a win. It would be great if they couldn't even get one, but I doubt that will happen.

    Missouri = Big 12 #5, Northwestern = Big 10 #4.

    Kansas = Big 12 #7, Minnesota = Big 10 #7

    If the conferences are similar those matchups should be about even. The fact that Big 12 teams were heavy favorites and won just shows how poor the middle of the Big 10 is. Next up will be Penn State and Ohio State showing just how poor the top of the Big 10 is, as well.

    Minnesota got it's *** kicked, which was to be expected. They loaded up on cream puffs in the non-conference, and were never the same after the jNU game. Way to go, Kansas kicked Minnesota's ***, just like Michigan. Yay?

    jNU gave Mizzou all it could handle. I can't imagine that Mizzou ever got held to 311 yards of offense at any point in the regular season. Mizzou won because the 'Cats missed an extra point, not because they dominated the game in any way.

    Texas held them to 348, and Oklahoma held them to 354. So it's not like it's THAT far off what NW did.

    That's a mystery. These two have been flushed from cover; I'll add them to my Ignore List. (This will make 26 on that list, hope there isn't a system limit.)

    My point was the jNU more than held their own against Mizzou, who, according to almost everyone on this message board was pretty much going to do whatever they wanted.
