    We're are not talking about one team from the B10 having trouble like Oklahoma. We're talking about an entire conference having trouble. Michigan, OSU, Illinois, Iowa and now PSU.

    Even Herbstreit, a B10 guy, admits the conference is a joke. Early this year he said the B10 is the equivalent of the MAC.
    9-4 vs. a conference equals their equivalents? Huh, that's good math. I guess if I use that logic, the Big Ten is equal to the Big 12!

    BTW, PSU made it respectable in the 2nd half. While they never got back in the game, they put up solid numbers against that vaunted USC defense, and turned a 24 point loss into a 14 point loss.

    I didn't even think USC played that well at times, and still whooped up on Penn State.

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    I have no issue at all with Penn State in the Rose Bowl, they won their conference so they should be there.

    My problem is that everyone knew the Big 10 was bad this year and the BCS took TWO teams from the conference. My guess is that Texas will beat up on Ohio State and then the Big 10 can thank Iowa for its only bowl win this year.

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    You at least have to give it to the little 11. Some how their powers that be were able to get all these bowl game tie ins and a TV package that I wish the Big 12 had. Even if it is an embarrassment the way they perform (1-5 in bowls so far) on the big stage they are laughing all the way to the bank. I have always referred to the little 11 as nothing more than a mid major, with $$ and great salesman.

    Want proof, turn on the Big 10 Network. Watch a game tonight (hard to do stomach, I know) and you will be able to see it 4 more times in the next 24 hours (enough to make you want to rip your eyes out.) They have all this $$ for a TV station, but can't come up with any programming for it other then game replays, yet they were still able to sell (con) cable / satellite providers to carry the station.

    Now this takes the cake. I guess the Big 10 has resigned to losing bowl games but what really matters is if they can keep the loss competitive

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    People are really underrating the fact that USC is really, really good. Frankly IMO if USC comes to play every game over the last few years they would go undefeated.

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    What is really scary is had Iowa not beaten PSU we probably would have had to watch this sort of drubbing being administered to the Big 10 in the NC game. In my opinion, going undefeated in the Big 10 right now is no different than going undefeated in the WAC or Mountain West.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    It would be most interesting to see if USC could duplicate that performance if the game were played in Happy Valley in January instead of their own frickin' back yard.

    Since they go anywhere and play anybody, and win those games, I'm thinking they can make it more impressive in Happy Valley.


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

    And this is exactly the reason why SH is so defensive about Penn State and is touting a McCarney-esque 2nd half victory. The Hawk fans are still living in a dream world where they beat a top 5 team this year. The fact is that Penn State was overrated the entire season (not Iowa's fault but it's now a fact) and Iowa made a field goal to beat them. What if that FG doesn't go in? I can't wait for the preseason expectations for Iowa next year, THAT should be entertaining!

    Playing in Happy Valley in January would be a lot different than playing @Virginia in August. It doesn't hurt USC that the Rose Bowl is 10 miles from campus.

    I really wish Cyclone fans would stop ******** about this. If Oregon State had beaten Oregon, Ohio State wouldn't have gotten in. Texas may very well beat up on the Bucks, but you can't blame Ohio State for the Beav laying an egg at home with the Rose Bowl on the line.
