If the Illini miss a bowl by a game, you should spend your loot on an EMU Eagles jersey.
Excellent point!! .... That game was huge then, even bigger now after Wisky cr@pped themselves.

Re: I don't have a warm, fuzzy feeling anymore!!

I might be a Notre Dame Irish fan, but, as far as I'm concerned this week there's only one team in Indiana I give two hoots about. Boiler Up!!!!!!! Boilers have won 3 straight in the series by an average of 20 points, and their team this year has been competitive in every league game except Penn St...

Re: Freaking hideous!!!

You change conferences, you're locked in for 7 years. You switch during those 7 years, whatever time frame is left within those 7 years, you're not eligible for the playoffs for that time. Hypothetical... You form a conference in 2020. After 2 years, a couple of geographically important schools lea...

Re: I Don't Have A Warm Fuzzy Feeling II

Notre Dame is out of the playoffs. We're looking down the barrel of a nice bowl game though.

I can't stand Kelly but he's putting together a nice recruiting class for '20.

UT Vols & I have a $100 bet. He said Illinois would win 6 games and go to a bowl game. To which I told him he was bat $hit crazy. Well, after less than stellar performances by Nebraska, Minnesota & Purdue, I think I may be in trouble. With Nebraska & Rutgers being home games, well ....... :?: :?: :...

Re: WINNER Week 8 Large School "Pick 'Ems"

Honorable Mention #2:

PigskinPassion68 was the only poster to pick Canton over Dunlap. You were a 2 point conversion away from being the only poster to get that game right. Impressive pick considering everyone had Dunlap winning that game by an avg. of 15 points.

Re: Freaking hideous!!!

The easiest and best solution in my mind is to let schools switch conferences once every 10 years and after th...
