    Check out Stanford

    You know, the program that won 3 Pac 12 titles in 4 years and absolutely humiliated us in the 2016 Rose Bowl? They're now last place in their division at 2-5 and just got beat at home 52-7 by Utah. All of this has occurred under the same head coach's watch. Kind of amazing.

    Iowa's schedule the rest of the way

    I don't have any specific agenda, just curious about the numbers and thought I might as well share. Going off Football Outsiders defensive efficiency ratings through week 7 (so not counting this weekend's games). (Team) - (defensive efficiency ranking) - (Iowa point output) - (TO margin)...

    Wisconsin @ Purdue next weekend

    I'm sure some of you already knew this, but Wisconsin plays at Purdue next weekend. That will be some must see bye week TV, I think. If Wisconsin mops the floor with Purdue, I might cry.

    Has anyone actually charted the "injuries"?

    I did the first half on a whim, but would be surprised if someone else hasn't already done this (better). I did defensive "injuries" only. 1Q 13:07 #97 down. Has not returned by end of 2Q. 1Q 3:13 Big Goodson run, #1 down. Returns after 1 play. 2Q 7:52 Hawks really moving the ball, #91...

    Some interesting halfway point Massey numbers

    I've got Hawkeye football fever and time to kill lol Some predicted win %s the rest of the way here: Some sweaty palmed games ahead, I fear. A couple that jumped out: @ Wisconsin, 70% win chance, projected 21-14 score @ Nebraska, 62% win chance...

    Any word on Moss?

    Did not look good, I'm very nervous. I've watched a lot of sports in my lifetime, I got a strong "torn knee ligament" vibe watching that. Hope I'm I'm wrong, dude is a weapon.

    Anyone watching Michigan @ Nebby now?

    0-0, end of 1st Q. Nebraska is fired up, can they make it a game?

    Look at this picture of Eric Crotch

    I see a lot of teeth, but look at the eyes! Talk about your forced smiles. Is it just me, or does this look like a straight up hostage situation? Cuz my read is dude is there against his will, 100%.

    A little HuskerMax nightcap anyone?

    This thread: it delivers! To be fair, there are some surprisingly clear headed Fuskers chiming in on that thread, but plenty more taking the bait. Can you imagine being a grown ass adult and believing...

    This ain't all Campbell

    Nonsensical thread title, but I know it'll get me clicks, so here we are. I love seeing the multi sport kids. Specialization sucks. I think you learn so much perspective playing different...

    CyFan taking today's loss with grace and dignity

    Lol, j/k Losing their minds over there. Just glad it's not us. Could have *easily* been us, but we survived.

    Several of us (self included) took Wyoming in the HN Survival Pool (@ hapless UConn). They were down 16-10 with about 7 to go. Now lead 24-16. Whew. They were like 31 pt favorites. This has been heartburn Saturday for me.

    OT: TIL Sean Keeler writes for the Denver Post

    Isn't this the guy who used to regularly run afoul of HN when he wrote for the Rag?

    Nebraska is going to upset MSU this Sat (change my mind)

    Give me a break - It's creampuff week, so I am looking through other games of interest for this weekend. Could Nebraska win @ MSU this weekend? I (unfortunately) think Nebraska is probably a bit better than people think. Likewise, I think people are probably a bit too high on MSU. It all...

    Anyone looked ahead to CSU yet?

    Just doing some (boredom fuelled) light scouting. They are a bit of a mystery, but ought to be an easy win. Just a question of how easy, exactly. I think they've got a decent coach - Steve Adazio. He's not the second coming of Bear Bryant by any means, but he's got a track record of being...

    Luka getting a standard contract!

    I am not sure I've ever been more happy to have been wrong in my entire life! Dude is a real-life superhero!

    TWO losses?!? Can you even imagine?!?

    Thoughts and prayers to Buckeye Nation. I can't imagine what suffering through losing not one but TWO football games must feel like, I'm just gutted for them. Better days ahead though, keep ya heads up, Bucks...

    Random football thought of the day: service academies

    I was watching some college football highlights earlier and, by chance, a few involving service academies popped up. Once again, I found myself shocked by how physically _small_ those programs are. Even matched up against FCS schools, they looked noticeably smaller to me. From an eyeball test...
