    Ok guys.. AP Polls are out, and we have less than 2 weeks till we are wide open!!!

    1 Alabama
    2 Ohio State
    3 Boise State
    4 Florida
    5 Texas
    6 TCU
    7 Oklahoma
    8 Nebraska
    9 Iowa
    10 Virginia Tech

    I really wish I could figure out if the people that vote this way are on some sort of drug... Anyway I still can't find that game to watch anywhere at any time other than ESPN Classic in a few days and I refuse to sub to a sports package with Dish to watch just that one game for that one channel when I used to have it in my current package.

    lol, that's my avatar from the OSU forums.

    Haters gonna hate!

    Getting antsy now.Sept.2 is so close.Been watching practices on the B10 Network all week.
    Do you fans from other conferences have TV stations?The production is a bit lame, but it's really cool to be able to see past games,league specific features, and practices.

    First- concerning the above posts----

    OSU hates Michigan because OSU respects Michigan.I'm sure the feeling is mutual.That's why it's a rivalry.
    We've owned them in the Tressel era, They owned us in the Cooper era.
    All the smack talk is in good fun, but there's always a hint of truth too.The hate is real/ the respect is real

    Observers fom other conferences are often mislead into thinking "bad sportsmanship) (^Sava) but the reality is, "True sportsmanship"

    This explains better, and nearly brought a tear to my eye.Michigan fans, and OSU fans should appreciate this......

    next:

    BIG 10 Realignment

    I know there's lots of B10 fans here, and I'm interested in all your thoughts.
    Is Delaney hurting, or helping.
    Wisky and Iowa have already been separated.That seems like a done deal.
    Thoughts?

    Your rivalry "last game of year" may be ending very soon.. I still here they are in talks with the conference splitting much like the ACC has with a division split that could make a big difference in how the GAME is played.

    Also your youtube video I believe is the beginning to the HBO series special on the two teams.. great 1hour long talk about it!

    Anyone wanna do Picks all season based on the AP top 25teams? Keep tabs of records and see who was most correct at the end of the season? :)

    I've heard that show is great, but never had a chance to see it.

    Are you talking about picking the whole season for those currently top 25, or doing the T25 week by week?
    I'm in for a weekly pick, but IMO, top 10 would be much less time consuming.

    Marshall @ #2 Ohio State - OSU wins

    #14 USC @ Hawaii - Hawaii wins
    #15 Pittsburgh @ Utah - Pitt wins

    Saturday Sept. 4, 2010:

    San Jose State @ #1 Alabama - Alabama wins
    Miami(OH) @ #4 Florida - Florida wins

    Ohh and a request if anyone has ESPN Classic, there is a game playing Sunday at 4pm EST between Nebraska at VT, can someone record this to DVD or upload it for me?? I'd be more than glad to pay for the shipping costs but I can't find this game anywhere else to watch it and I don't want to sub to a sports package on dish just to watch it.

    LOL I'll be at the Stadium bright and early..all day event!! We've got another weapon for use that night, Tailback Wilson will play and not red shirt so this is good news since he's very very good and powerful! He will see the ball alot on special teams!

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5513604

    Tyrod also had a very awesome final scrim day, 16 for 17 passes with the missed pass a throw away, he will obviously be ready!

    http://hamptonroads.com/2010/08/hokies-camp-2010-vol-25-final-scrimmage-report

    Thing that's got me wondering about this game is weather, Hurricane Earl is passing by a day or so ahead of the game but Fiona may come up right after that with a more western track bringing rain and wind... I'm thinking a windy night will hurt Boise more than us since our running game will be stronger.

    Ok I have no axe to grind with Boise St....but let's be honest...how many losses do you think they'd have this year if they played in the SEC, Big 12, Big 10 or Pac 10? I think they'd lose atleast 2 conference games in each of those conferences. They're a good team but the grind of playing good competition each week would wear them down just like everybody else.

    Big 10 divisions setup.

    Division 1: Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan State, Northwestern, Minnesota

    Division 2: Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin, Purdue, Indiana, Illinois

    Protected crossovers: Michigan-Ohio State, Penn State-Nebraska, Minnesota-Wisconsin, Northwestern-Illinois, Purdue-Iowa, Michigan State-Indiana.

    Other games on the final regular-season Saturday in 2011 include: Indiana-Purdue, Iowa-Nebraska, Michigan State-Northwestern, Penn State-Wisconsin and Minnesota-Illinois. So Minnesota-Illinois is the only other cross-division game on the final Saturday of the regular season.
