The first College Football Playoff rankings came out this week and, well, there weren’t any Big Ten teams in the top four. If you find that news surprising, let me also break it you that the stuff in the middle of a Twinkie isn’t actually whipped cream, either. For the rest of us, there are six games that need our attention, so let’s give it to them, shall we?
I don’t know if you noticed, but the Big Ten lost a few important non-conference games last week. In this week’s Big Ten football picks I’ll be looking at each team, evaluating what’s working and what clearly isn’t. Well, as clearly as anything can be evaluated after just two weeks. To the games!
Week One of the 2014 Big Ten football season is here. I’ve already given you my picks for the three early games this upcoming week, but what about the games that are being played when they’re supposed to be, on Saturday? Click on, pilgrim; I’ve got some picks for you.
In March of 1972, The Godfather hit the box office and forever changed the way we looked at movies.
On December 20th, two years later, the sequel was released and one of the greatest stories ever told just got better.
It’s crazy to think that The Godfather is 40 years old. For a movie that old to remain relevant, not feel dated, and still impact the way we look at movies is an accomplishment in and of itself.
Our managing editor Jerod will be closing out his four-week college football road trip, courtesy of La Quinta, this weekend in Columbus, Ohio where the Buckeyes host the Purdue Boilermakers.
Columbus is sure to be a fitting end to an incredible road trip of experiences for Jerod.
Lucky for us, Jerod has been kind enough to chronicle his stops with recaps and photo diaries here on MSF. Stay tuned after Saturday for another fantastic piece. I promise you’ll feel as if you experienced the journey yourself.
As for the game itself, let’s look at what to expect.
