Concerned, tell us why u predicted all those upsets?

Daniel J. Fox on 9/5/2013 @ 11:35am EDT Said:

I’m in agreement, except NU over Syracuse. NU looking better each year. No longer the sure win for other B1G teams!

Concerned…..really……ISU over Purdue. Regardless of how bad they looked last week, Purdue has never lost to a FCS team, avg margin victory over 35 pts. ISU gave up 73 to IU plus no Shakir Bell…..time to get reasonable

Sparty & Gopher & Nebr. need to show up this week–NU game will be exciting, WI & OSU over by 2nd qtr.

James Miller on 9/6/2013 @ 2:47pm EDT Said:
