This weeks show (with unshakable cold goodness)
A few big wins last week have shaken up the college football scene. Who would have seen Houston upending top-5 Oklahoma State? For the Big Ten conference, this week had several opportunities to regain some of the respect it used to have. It didn’t go as well perhaps as commissioner Jim Delaney would have liked, but there were some good games. Purdue nearly upset Oregon in Eugene, Michigan defeated Notre Dame, Indiana managed to not lose to Western Michigan, Iowa dismantled Iowa State (I thought that game would be much closer). On the other hand, Ohio State lost to USC (but in a quality game that bodes well for the rest of the season), Wisconsin took two overtimes to beat Fresno State, and Michigan State lost to an underrated Central Michigan squad.
So while the Big Ten at least managed to avoid any big embarrassments, there’s still plenty of football to be played, including this week’s games.
Technical notes: recorded with a headset this weekend, the audio quality is way better. But the show doesn’t sound that great, due to my cold. Which is also why it is being posted less than an hour before the first games kickoff. Sorries.
