I stumbled upon something that I found to be irritating.
Can we all assume based on past performance and future expectations that the top three teams in the Big Ten Leaders Division are Ohio State, Wisconsin and Penn State?
And can we assume that the top four teams in the Legends Division are Nebraska, Michigan, Iowa and Michigan State?
As you know, Penn State's annual protected crossover game is with Nebraska (a team that will be at the top or near the top of their division every year) and Ohio State's protected annual crossover game is, of course, with Michigan - a team that should normally be near the top of their division every year.
Well, in case you didn't already know, guess who Wisconsin plays annually? Minnesota. That's right: Minnesota. Can you believe that?
Who came up with that?
This means that every year they will have a very good chance of beating Penn State by one game in the loss column.
How could they not have been matched up with either Iowa or Michigan State?
Wisconsin has a huge built-in advantage, year in and year out.
I am really surprised that this wasn't given greater thought by the geniuses that put this stuff together.
Four large wild turkeys were seen feeding in the crown vetch across from the first baseline parking area of Westfall Ballpark this past week at 5:30 p.m.
Three confirmed gobblers with 5-6 inch bears and the fourth probably the same slowly retreated to the hillside.
These boys were probably unwelcome all summer long as hens raised their broods. They spent the summer eating and putting on weight.
Happy Thanksgiving, anyone!
