My Wildcats (Northwestern) have crept up to 5-3. Suddenly a bowl game is not such a stretch!
Today in the Big 10 I am routing for
> Penn State over Indiana
> OSU over MSU
> Michigan over Illinois
> Iowa over Purdue
I hate to root for the "big 3", but I can't help it - it helps NU.
I will also be rooting for Auburn over LSU, Kentucky over Florida. And I will be happy for whatever team gets a loss in USC-ND - it's just nice to know one of the two of them will get another loss
OU barely squeaked out a W over iowa state. i bet they move up in the rankings next week. that's the kind of disparity i'm talking about with these "name" teams - people just look at their record and take it at face value. never mind that playing on the road in your conference is a tough proposition no matter who the opponent is! hawaii barely beats SJSU on the road (and SJSU has a better record than iowa state) in awful weather, and people put down the warriors.
all i've heard this week is how great OU is...i'm sure they'll get praised for coming through with a tough win on the road...never mind that iowa state is now 1-7
