For those of you who care.

Looks like a very unpredictable season.

Go Nebraska!

no where to go but up for the Gophers after a pathetic 1-11 season. But of course our highly touted freshman recuiting class also happens to be the dumbest (lowest ACT scores of all Big Ten freshman classes). Plus the standout QB recruit has already been at least temporarily removed from the team because of issues with his ACT score. Should be another wonderful year Embarassed

Unfortunetly I am a Michigan fan, and they are pretty bad this year.
Stupid Utah. At least it wasn't appalachian state again.

I have been a Wolverines fan for many years now.... and the last two seasons have not been pretty....

Hopefully they can turn it around this year... but losing the first game of the season to a non BCS team is not going to help much.

I can relate as a Cornhuskers fan. Since before I was born to about 1999 a loss very rarely occurred. Then at the turn of the century things went downhill (Actually after 2001 it got pretty bad.) 9-3 seasons aren't good here, and then it was 7-5, 6-6 seasons and of course last year 5-7 got our coach thrown out onto the streets (he's actually coaching Favre now, and he'll probably screw him up pretty badly too.)

We got a new coach this year as well although he helped coach the team back when we were successful, so it's not necessarily an outside hire. Plus he helped LSU win the BCS Championship last year, so that's good on a resume.

After what Bowling Green did to Pitt last week, I see very little hope for the Golden Gophers this week.

On the bright side, we have already equalled our win total from last season! What a joke.

Warning you from experience, we played 'em last year.

USC is not a fun team to play... at all.

Good luck to you guys though, hopefully OSU can beat them out.

I hope we can pull through ( i hate pete carrol ). Not only for OSU but for the Big Ten. We've been getting ragged on so hard. Hope we can shut the Pac-10 up, 4 days away

haha, I'm pulling for Ohio State on this one. I don't really like either team, just because of our history with both of them, but I prefer Ohio State to USC. Mostly cuz I don't like Carrol.
