Well, time to start separating the men from the boys. It is fuckin’ cccccold here so we might see some good arctic highlights from the Great Midwest today. There are a bunch of dumb cupcake games today, but some good action as well. Here we go:
Illinois now owns the longest losing streak in the nation in conference games. Our only hope of breaking it is today against Purdon’t, and we are actually 7 point favorites, at Purdue! Which shows you how bad they are. I think either way that Beckman gets canned after this year. The coaches shouting at each other last week on the sidelines added a nice touch to the loss.
VANDALS at Florida State. Oh my God. A nice payday for Idaho, but I hope too many of their guys don’t get crippled. The line is FSU -57 for those interested.
Johnny Foosballs at LSU.
Tulane continues the march to their seventh consecutive national championship, hosting UTEP today. Honestly, I think the way the Wave shit the bed the last couple of weeks has put a dent in their bowl hopes, but Astro can help out with clearing that up. Vegas says Tulane by 16.5. Hey, I just want to see Montana’s foul mouthed wife do her thang.
New Mexico at Fresno. We need the Bulldogs and NIU to continue to win out and have the BCS shit the bed one last and final time.
Wershington at Beaver Meat.
Wissonsin at Minnesota – a great trophy game, playing for Paul Bunyan’s axe, which Wisco has won the last nine years and they will make it ten today. But a couple of wrinkles – it is going to be punishingly cold up there today, with a high of 23 and some wind. Minnesota has had a great year (for them) and they are playing for their coach Jerry Kill, who has a seizure every other minute so there is always that dynamic. It has been a pretty inspiring year. I have been watching this line – it opened up at Badgers -14, then immediately went to 15.5, where it settled for a few days until I looked this morning and it is up to 17. Someone (or some people) has plowed a LOT of money into the Badger side for a line move like that.
