College football: Evaluating Big 10 regular-season win totals

The Big 10 has been home to some talent disparity lately ,with Jim Harbaugh at Michigan and Urban Meyer at Ohio State upping the ante when it comes to recruiting talent. On the other side of the conference, Wisconsin has steadily and consistently found diamonds in the rough and developed players extremely well in order to compete at the highest level. At the bottom of the conference, however, things have been bleak. Illinois has been a disaster, Maryland has seen [...]

In-State Rivalries Headline a Full Slate of Games on the Hardwood on Saturday Afternoon- Scott Shapiro’s NCAA Hoops Analysis

A plethora of intriguing out of conference contests, including a number of in-state rivalries, headline a solid slate of games on the hardwood Saturday afternoon. Here are my thoughts on a few of the bigger games on December 8th in NCAA Basketball:   #9 Kentucky Wildcats vs Seton Hall Pirates Kentucky got off to a poor start to the season when they were blown out by Duke 118-84 in their season opener.

2018 Penn State Nittany Lions Move On From Saquon

The Penn State Nittany Lions lost only two games last season but timing is everything in college football. The back-to-back losses, both on the road to Michigan State and Ohio State, were to be expected and knocked . The team rallied, eventually downing Washington in the Fiesta Bowl 35-28 to end the a strong season on a high note. Heading in to this year's campaign, however, the 2018 Penn State Nittany Lions face an incredibly dense division and will have [...]

2018 Wisconsin Badgers Center Around Taylor

by DS Williamson The 2018 Wisconsin Badgers have some unfinished business from last year after a rip roaring, almost-undefeated run where they tripped up in the final game of the regular season. Their 21-27 loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes in last season’s Big Ten Championship Game is serving as high motivation. If Wisconsin had beaten Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship, they would have garnered a spot in the College Football Playoff. The Badgers didn’t let the loss deter [...]

The nature of Big Ten football is brutal if you want attention. Then again, if you’re like Michigan State coach Mike Dantonio, you don’t want any attention until you’re [...]
