It was a fairly calm week in the Big Ten with four teams on byes. Michigan State and Ohio State both won their games 56-17, Maryland looked strong and a major poll found Minnesota’s one-point win over Purdue very impressive for some reason. Here’s how that all shook it out in the rankings for eight of our voters.
A few years ago, I wouldn’t have thought it possible that I’d be expressing sympathy for a guy who spent several nights of passion with Jessica Simpson (in her prime) on a Caribbean island, but here we are.
Let’s clear something up: Joel Stave is a better passer than Tanner McEvoy by a chasmic margin. There seems to be a false equivalency in the minds of some Wisconsin fans that McEvoy and Stave are both bad passers, but at least McEvoy can run. Stop it.
1. No. 8 Michigan State (nine first-place votes), 139 points
The transitive property: If a > b and b > c, then a > c. It’s one of the most basic tenants of mathematics and an idea that every person on Earth has used at one time or another, whether they’re aware of it or not. For our purposes, let’s talk about its use in the college football rankings, or at least in how the rankings are perceived.
Here’s a quick explanation of our voting methodology: We had 10 voters on our staff rank the conference 1-14 and awarded points in an inverted structure (first place gets 14 points, etc.) Without further adieu, here’s how that shook out.
Well… that Kansas City Royals game was fun. Twelve innings of multiple ties and lead changes, truly memorable plays and heroes like Brandon Finnegan, Brandon Moss and Jarrod Dyson all in front of an electric crowd and in winner-take-all, no-tomorrow stakes? Yeah, I’d like to see more of that.
Call it a bounce-back week for the Big Ten, but then again every team showing up to the actual game could be considered a bounce-back after what happened the week before. Now let’s congratulate Indiana on an SEC win and point and laugh at Michigan.
The Big Ten hasn’t had the best three weeks in the nonconference season, with all teams going a combined 1-10 against Power 5 conferences. Of course, we now play the “Power rank the Big Ten” game, also known as “How embarrassing was your out-of-conference loss?”
Over the past few years, an unfortunate narrative for Badger football has emerged. Usually the team operates as a motley crew of bruisers, but if that group plays in a big game to the last minute, something will go terribly wrong.
Considering how poorly the Milwaukee Brewers have played over the past several weeks, you would think the team would be ready to pop open a bottle of champagne after any win at this point.
Two days. It took two days for the most flimsy, half-hearted, most pathetically defensive cover-up in in recent sports history to dissolve.
Badger athletics lost a close member of its family Tuesday afternoon, as the Wisconsin men’s hockey team issued a release announcing the death of former Badger hockey player Bob Suter. He was 57.
It’s not exactly a secret that the Southeastern Conference has been dominant in the last decade.
Statement 1: Félix Hernández is the most valuable player in the American League. Statement 2: Félix Hernández is a pitcher. It has become a prevailing wisdom in the baseball fandom and media that Statement 2 makes Statement 1 somewhere between unlikely and virtually impossible. This wisdom was widely discussed when Justin Verlander was humiliating batters in 2011 and some saw fit to lower him on their MVP ballots or drop him altogether. Verlander almost certainly would have lost the award if his team hadn’t made the playoffs.
The rosters for the 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Minnesota were released Sunday night, so now it's time to wade through the rosters and separate the wheat from the chaff and the Jeter from the young baseball players.
At the beginning of last season, new head coach Kelly Sheffield took over a national program that seemed to have fallen dormant. After a streak of nine straight NCAA tournament appearances, former head coach Pete Waite’s program missed the tournament six times in a row.
Day Three of the 2014 National Football League Draft brought fortune to three Badgers, who will all continue their football careers with 2013 playoff teams.
After a stellar career with the Badgers, linebacker Chris Borland was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers with the 13th pick of the third round, 77th overall.
