    Hmmmm.....let me see here - 1) road game in Madison, 2) after a big win against a top 10 opponent, 3) against a well-coached team whose staff is full of Buckeye alums who dream of nothing more than springing a massive upset, 4) in front of the screaming, gassed-up Badger masses, 5) at night, 6) on Halloween? What could possibly go wrong? Give me a 1 point win and let me go home.....

    Me too Terry, there have been some wild ones up in Madison, especially with Braxton Miller;)

    Is it by rule or do they block transmissions after the snap?

    The players don't have a mic so it's 1 way communication.

    Each team can have 1 player on the field at a time with a speaker in their helmet.

    It is 1 way from the coaches to the player, and they are used to send in the play.

    They stay on until the ball is snapped or the play clock hits 15, so the coaches can give any other information that they want to in that time.

    I'm seeing on other sites that UM computers were used to hack into Ohio State computers and steal videos. It's what brought in the FBI. Some are saying that the Big 10 is livid and they will act quicker than the NCAA. I wonder what they can/will do if they choose to act before the end of the season or the Big 10 Championship game.

    I am not sure those reports are accurate. The FBI are investigating former coordinator Matt Weiss’ improperly accessing university computers. According to a recent police statement, out of state computers were accessed thus triggering the FBI involvement, but the police statement indicated that there was no relationship between the Weiss investigation and the NCAA investigation re Signgate.

    But, if OSU’s computers were improperly accessed, whoever did that likely violated federal law.

    It has truly gotten a life of it's own with it's own energy source. I can't keep track of it all and I truly have no idea what or who to believe. One thing is certain, that game in AA in late November is gonna be spicy. Good thing these two programs and coaches have such a good relationship or it could get really saucy ;)

    Florida over Georgia? I guess if he's right he's a genius and if he's wrong just another homer.

    Not sure how to read that comment and I can't find my sarcasm meter this morning. Are you serious or kidding? I think the latter. :confused:

    We've hated each other ever since the war over Toledo in 1833. That was child's play compared to all the accusations and sh!t talking I'm hearing going back and forth right now. I mean if Ryan Day was born on third base at least he didn't have to steal it to get there. :p Sarcasm meter would read ....

    I think Spencer Rattler has set some kind of record.
    3 intentional grounding penalties in the first half!
    In his defense he was gonna get lit up behind that porous OL SCAR has...

    OU in another battle on the road vs a big underdog. UCF almost got them last week, and KU is giving them quite a battle in Lawrence.

    Looks like the Aggies are going to cruise to the win they needed.

    IU gave Penn State quite a battle, surprisingly.
