    I wouldn't necessarily disagree about Wisconsin. They are probably about equal or slightly better than Michigan. They didn't look good in week 1 at all outside of Ball though.

    I was just reading SB Nations weekly alphabetical on week 1, inferior to the numerological column since numbers>letters, Jesse Williams the enormous DT for Bama has "I stopped checking for the monster under the bed when I realized the monster is me." tattooed on his hands. That is fucking awesome.

    Nebraska - UCLA will be interesting, and to be honest, I think UCLA will be tougher then most all of the B1G teams except Michigan, Ohio State, and possibly Northwestern, and Michigan State. Nebraska just hasn't been great at stopping the run, and more specifically running QBs since Ndamukong Suh was there

    If Arkansas doesn't get a gameday next week when we play Alabama we will never get one. We should have gotten 1 last year when we played South Carolina when both teams was ranked in the top 10 but it didn't happen.

    That's because there was a better match up on that date. It was #1 LSU versus #2 Alabama. Do you really think gameday is going to go somewhere else over that match up?

    You might get one this year though, it's between Arky(8) vs. Bama(1) or MSU(11) vs. Notre Dame(22).

    Yeah I couldn't remember if that game was played the same week. If anybody else loses that is 2-7 I don't see how Arkansas doesn't get a espn Gameday.Looking at the schedule I don't think anybody 1-10 will lose this saturday.

    I didn't say they were, I'm going by the fact that Nebraska has trouble with running QBs. Nebraska beat Michigan State 24-3 last year, and got hammered by Michigan, and Michigan State beat Michigan, so how come they didn't beat Nebraska? Because teams match up differently. Just because X beats Y doesn't mean X can beat Z even though Y beat Z. Nebraska would have lost to Ohio State last year if Braxton Miller didn't get injured and that one dimensional passing QB never entered the game.

    Look at the games Nebraska lost last year, they all had two dimensional QBs

    Wisconsin (Russel Wilson)
    Michigan (Denard Robinson)
    Northwestern (Kain Colter)
    South Carolina (Connor Shaw)

    Auburn is playing hilariously bad. Like, literally, I'm laughing at them. Quite a long fall from two years ago.

    Tulane Safety Devon Walker injured 2 seconds before halftime.
    apparently the medical team had to cut off his pads and uniform before carting him off the field in the ambulance after a helmet to helmet hit.

    This is just sad. I think it's time to denounce Florida's SEC status. A&M is literally running over them. Hurt players, multiple sacks on Driskel, nothing going right.

    SEC east is just bad this year and I think Georgia is overrated. Really the only really good teams in the SEC is LSU,Bama, and Arkansas and that's just about it I also think A&M is underrated same with Vandy.

    Just going add a bit to this.
    He stopped breathing on the field, the EMTs were able to revive him though. ESPN's reporting he has a collapsed lung and a broken neck.

    Domers are not playing outstanding ball in south bend vs the spoilermakers. dont expect Purdue to win, but theyve at least made a game of it.

    The badgers are proving to be horrendously overrated, id be nervous about how they handle their division.

    MSU played a nobody. Michigan played a spread offense with no prep time but did indeed look meh. Wisconsin, who the fuck knows. Losing Wilson to the NFL couldn't have hurt them this bad. How do they have zero points in the fourth against Oregon St with Monty Ball on their team? More importantly, how the hell did Michigan drop behind them in the polls this week when Wisconsin nearly lost to Northern Iowa (or Illinois I forget). They do not look like the same team at all.

    Hope the kid from Tulane is okay. Scary situation when someone stops breathing on the field like that.

    regardless of MSU playing a nobody, the offense looked good, Bell got a breather, Maxwell and the WR didnt look to bad (LIPPETT HELD ONTO THE GD BALL), and the Defense...well...performed like we would expect?
    through 2 games MSU's defense has given up 6 points.
    6 measly points...

    Oregon State's gameplan was containment, and they executed it. They held Ball to 61 yards. White managed 11 on three carries. They went 2-for-14 on 3rd down. Ouch.

    We talked about the worthless subjectivity of the polls a few pages back, so I don't find it surprising, nor do I find it unfair.

    I think the more important question is: why was Michigan ranked in the top ten to begin with? Unrealistic expectations? Denard alone? Don't get me wrong, 60% of my wardrobe is maize and blue. It's just that anyone who's followed this team for more than three seasons has to recognize that, despite the fact that Denard Robinson is a great kid with an infectious smile, he's not the be-all end-all. When his head's in the game, he's explosive on the ground and a reasonably accurate passer. When he's under pressure all that flies out the window. We obviously lack the depth of years past on both sides of the ball (and there's good reason that this page is no longer proudly advertised on the main athletics site like it used to be). It'll take two more recruiting classes, minimum, to finish repairing damage from the Carr-Rodriguez-Hoke transition.

    Is anyone else watching the ULM game? It's going in OT right. This game is fucking insane

    Edit: HOLY SHIT! ULM just pulled off a MASSIVE upset. Just wow.
