Less than stellar B1G Championship game...much like the entire conference has been this year I guess.... Betting FOX wishes they could unload that game in favor of airing a re-run of the 500th Anniversary of the Simpson's...

This year Illinois blew probably the best chance they will ever have to play in a Big Ten Championship. With Ohio State and Penn State ineligible all they would have to have done is beat Wisconsin, Indiana, Purdue and Minnesota.

Congrats to the NIU Huskies. While I'm happy for them with their success, it hurts to know how much better they currently are than the Illini. The following facebook post of a friend, who is an NIU alumni, makes me shake my head and ask "if NIU football can be successful, why can't Illinois?"

Great game on ESPN! Northern Illinois Huskies, back-to-back MAC Champs! Very hard to believe that less than ten years ago NIU had the nations longest losing streak. So proud to be a Huskie

And the MAC championship went into 2OT and accumulated 81 points, while the SEC title game has a total of 17 points isn't very exciting so far.

Actually, the SEC championship was a terrific game. Too bad Georgia didn't get a few shots into the end zone at the end as it looked like they had Alabama on their heels a bit. I hate to see Alabama win, but they sure dominated on the ground.

With Bielema's reputation, I'd say 80 is a real possibility...

Outstanding block. I just hope that they were able to retrieve the kid's head from the stands to give back to his parents.

If it's offered, he should. I totally stand corrected in thinking that he would not take the job. His house will most likely be in flames when he returns to Lincoln tonight.

It'll be interesting to see how Auburn fans view him after tonight's game as a potential candidate.
