    Fuller Trump had no ideas, he just went too far

    Haven't really paid close attention to NCAA football in nearly a score. But that is all changing now that I have a kid going to a Big 12 school.

    Goooo Horny Toads!

    Don't get too attached Fuller or you're just setting yourself up for four years of TCU shirts as Christmas/birthday gifts.

    I'm gonna make an incredibly bold prediction and say Wisconsin will play in the Big Ten Championship Game.

    Everyone year lately it seems is the year Wisconsin is suppose to breakthrough.

    But they lose to TCU in the Rose Bowl couple years ago and last year they choked away a possible national title appearance. It is funny how for the second straight year the starting QB will be someone they poached from an ACC program.

    Wisconsin is definitely the favorite for the Legends. But that division is pretty stacked. I'm seriously thinking my Iowa team could be a dark horse. Schedule is in their favor and they just need consistency. Michigan or Michigan State for Leaders.

    :huh:

    Wisconsin is in the Leaders. OSU and Penn State are both banned. UW only needs to beat out IU, Purdue, and Illinois, which seems like a given.

    Just switch the conference names. Its been months so I got them mixed up. I added the stacked bit because I saw legends. Whoops. Of course Wisconsin has an easy road.

    Wisconsin still has to play OSU and PSU so they need to not fuck up still because: Purdue is going to be good, so that's some competition for Wisconsin.

    I always get them confused. And I follow Big Ten as a whole more than the NFL. So stupid.

    They fucking suck. I wanted an east/west split, but the douchebag Big Ten had to make it so Michigan and OSU could play in the title game.

    Just call them east/west and west/east.

    If east and west are good enough for the SEC, it should be good enough for the Big Ten.

    East and west would actually work. Only the Michigan teams screw it up. Considering the mess most other conference divisions are, that would actually be a sensible idea.

    East West would've been perfect. Natural border is Lake Michigan and the Illinois/Indiana border.

    Have they removed Paterno's name from the championship? I don't remember seeing that after the Big 10 chimed in on the NCAA violations.

    Yeah of all the Big Ten campuses you'd want to spend a few days in, I would think Iowa would be on the bottom half of my list.

    I thought Iowa was pretty cool whenever I visited it. But I go to ISU, so that doesn't say much.

    The stadium and football atmosphere are top-notch though. Tailgating there is awesome too.

    I thought all of that was really cool and honestly it's a pretty cool campus, it's just the lowest of low going there.

    Iowa was alright the few times I went. Never made it for a tailgate, didn't have a car freshman year and IU played on Halloween junior year so I wasn't leaving B-town.

    One of my uncles has a bus that he uses for all the tailgates. Planning on hitting that up hopefully for two games this season.

    So apparently there is a "high school" that has its kids take courses online and they just get together at some YMCA and practice and play football. They have 14 kids going to D-I schools and will play a game on national TV, despite not really being a school.

    I think it's time to end the association in this country with "amateur sports" and schools. Kids with elite athletic talent should be placed in professional environments when they reach 14 or so, just like how the rest of the world does it for soccer and now basketball.

    Of course the dead-enders and the one or two Ohio U. football fans will watch but I really hope that game and their whole season does not draw a big national audience. I get the media coverage for the first home game but the program deserves nothing but apathy.

    And congrats Ohio State fans on not getting it, at all.

    Did anyone here go to a school that was a first week fluffer for the big schools? I wonder what the campus atmosphere is like during that time.

    Yeah I can't imagine being all riled up at a MAC campus in week 1 to be fodder for some Big Ten power. Probably though, either there is no football culture at such school so no one really cares and if the school has a decent mid major team they all probably rally thinking they can get the upset.

    Iowa is playing Illinois State in 2015. So much conflict!
