Our friends in the South often label the SEC title game as the real national championship, and for good reason. The winner of the game has gone on to hoist the crystal football in six of the last seven seasons.
Michigan State also adds to the prestige of Saturday’s game. Like the Buckeyes, the Spartans are undefeated in Big Ten play, and they’ve actually been more dominant, winning all eight league contests by 11 points or more. The Spartans are the first team to win all of its Big Ten games by double-figure points since Michigan in 1943 (the Wolverines went 6-0 that year).
The 2013 Big Ten Championship Game is more than a contest to determine the Big Ten title and the conference’s official representative to the BCS. This year’s matchup between Ohio State and Michigan State will feature two teams with a significant amount of 2014 NFL Draft prospects.
1. Denicos Allen, OLB, Michigan State
2. Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State
3. Max Bullough, MLB, Michigan State
4. Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State
5. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
I’m sorry, but any coach would’ve said the same thing. That guy is blowing that press conference out of proportion.
It seems like now-a-days everyone is “soft” and it is quite frankly annoying to me. Tough love works too. You don’t need to hand out participation trophies so that the kids who didn’t win don’t feel bad. Maybe not giving them participation trophies will make those kids work harder so they do win next time.
I don’t know, but I didn’t have any issue with what Saban said. He also took responsibility for the loss.
However, I wasn’t that happy with Saban’s call to kick a 57 yard field goal. But, shit happens and if it would’ve worked, people would’ve called him a genius. Same as if Brady Hoke having Michigan go for 2 instead of the tie/OT would’ve worked… OR what if the Michigan State’s Little Giants play against Notre Dame a couple years ago wouldn’t have worked… people would STILL be judging Mark Dantonio.
Thanks to straight-from-the-mitten for sharing this article with me.
NFL referee Ed Hochuli is known for giving in-depth explanations to calls, but one of his explanations during the Monday Night Footballmatchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks certainly sounded odd.
Congratulations to Darqueze Dennard on winning the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year.
While many in Los Angeles are dissecting their feelings on the upcoming Steve Sarkisian era at USC, the man who reinvigorated the Trojans program in 2013 made it clear he isn’t sticking around.
Four sources confirmed to Ryan Abraham of USCFootball.com that, just hours after the hiring of Sarkisian, interim head coach Ed Orgeron formally handed in his resignation on Monday
Congratulations to Shilique Calhoun on winning the Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year.

I was told that this is a photo of her TV screen and that no photoshopping was involved.
Here’s something that no one seems to be talking about.
From this picture, it looks like Auburn’s Chris Davis stepped out of bounds during that missed field goal return at the end of the Alabama vs Auburn game.
I haven’t seen one thing about this in the media.
