    Why on earth...

    Does the big ten suck so badly this year? I mean come on. One bowl victory? And it comes from Iowa. What's up with that!

    I'm a huge Penn State fan, but was willing to admit USC was probably the better team. I only watched the 1st half, I know we came back a little, but I figured we were out of it early.

    What is this "bowl" you speak of and what does it have to do with cycling?

    It was OK to leave this in Great Lakes....I was just implying that I know nothing about anything outside of cycling.

    big ten = great lakes. I thought it was appropriate here. Sorry!

    Well....it's what some people like Mr. Wiswell watch while using the trainer..so it's in the category of what do you watch while riding the trainer, right?

    (That, plus PSU classic games taped on VCR - yes, even the technology is classic)

    But seriously, this does not portend well for the Big Ten folks who say that nobody loves them.

    That's okay, basketball season is here. MSU leading KU by around 20 at the half.

    And U-M has already beaten Duke AND UCLA so far.

    Might it have something to do with the lengthy layoff between the end of the regular season and the bowl games? I haven't really followed football until recently, but the Big Ten seems to have a longer layoff than most conferences.
