Featured Musicians: 8-Bit Big Band The Video: [After THE JUMP: The things said.] --------------------- 1. Ohio State After Review starts at the top. Defensively it was an NFL game. Michigan unleashed a dizzying array of coverages to hide McCord's leverage from him, and Ryan Day had all kinds of motions and switches to uncover it. The game turned on Mason Graham, who allowed Michigan to keep the pressure on McCord and play with an extra defender in the secondary because OSU could not run on him. Hutchinson-level? Not yet, but Hutchinson before his injury in 2020, where this guy is an All-American. Rod Moore was back to himself. Sainristil isn't a vet at outside cornerback, McBurrows is a good nickel. Offensively there was a lot left on the table. Michigan maximized its RPS wins, Corum's run was RPS+1 but also the biggest play in Michigan football history? JJ almost had a TD on the throwback to Johnson, who didn't recognize he had a Daylen Baldwin opportunity. Run game limited because Tyliek Williams played out of his mind. Going to be a negative in the run game charting for the first time in years, Barnhart especially. But he was their best in pass pro. Do. Not. Leave. JTT. Unblocked. 2. Iowa Preview: Offense starts at 22:44 Abominable, worst in the Power 5. Their receivers are a bad match for their QB, who needs a big target more than a good route. Injured TEs and OL who run a lot of stretch and counter trey: the kind of team Michigan should be best able to defend. Mitigator: Michigan likes to leave their safeties back and subject their DTs to doubles, while teams have been suffocating Iowa specifically because you can bring down your safeties and their RB will break a tackle for 50 yards once every three games. 3. Iowa Preview: Defense starts at 36:59 Excellent as always, with a lot more talent than we're used to. Five-star safety is playing like one, safety-ish linebacker from Virginia is athletic and their best pass-rusher. Plus the usual array of Iowa types. We wonder if their big-butted WLB is grading out so well (87 to PFF, over 90 in coverage) because he's more than a match for Big Ten West competition, but will get dusted if he has to keep up with Donovan Edwards. Missing Cooper DeJean but CBs have been fine. Again: competition question mark, and their DL isn't great at pass-rushing, so there's an opportunity for explosives except they take that away by playing soft cover 2. If they do that Michigan will have to grind them down like last year, but can they without Zinter? Their punter is incredible. Their backup kicker had to kick the game-winner against Nebraska. 4. The Other Conference Championships + Playoff Talk starts at 56:41 We go in order, starting with Washington-Oregon, which is not a 10-point game like Vegas has it. Oregon has been playing fantastic of late and Washington keeps needing to TCU its way through Pac-12 teams. But remember back when they played Washington had that game until Oregon surged back. Texas-Oklahoma State is the biggest spread, want to root for our old friend at QB but also rooting for Texas to get in to keep out the unwanted SEC teams and Ohio State. Georgia could lose to Bama, which is chaos, and we talk more about the committee's choices than the game. FSU beating Louisville would mean FSU goes ahead of any 1-loss team, and if Georgia complains about getting Oregon as the 4-seed they should pound sand. We don't believe in conspiracies; the committee cares about who wins the games, not what ESPN talking heads say to prop up the SEC. A Playoff without any SEC teams would be right, glorious, and absolutely deserved. About the Featured Musician: 8-BIT BAND We're back to letting Seth pick out the songs, so I'm going to nerd out and show you what I've been writing to for a lot of the year. It is this 25+ member orchestra of amazing jazz musicians who come together off their various projects to compose and produce big band versions of videogame music from our childhoods. I could describe further but Adam Neely, who's one of my favorite video essayists (one of the people worth getting a Nebula subscription for), has a 30-minute video on it. He also plays bass. The 8-Bit Band is playing December 15th at Sony Hall in New York, and January 13th at the Ferguson Center in Newport News.

Dan Wetzel, Ross Dellenger & Pat Forde pick college football rivalry week's biggest matchups against the spread on today's episode of Race for the Case.The guys begin the show by highlighting this week's most interesting games, in which UNC vs. NC State has the makings for an exciting matchup. Ross then reminisces about classic Egg Bowl hijinks and moments between Mississippi State and Ole Mis. Meanwhile, Louisville is trying to stay hot against Kentucky ahead of their ACC title game. Pat is excited for the Big Ten West's slate including the lowest over/under total ever in Nebraska vs. Iowa. The crew also yearns for a more interesting Iron Bowl after Auburn's down year.To close out the podcast, the guys give their picks against the spread for the #12 ranked Ole Miss Rebels at the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the #16 ranked Oregon State Beavers at the #6 ranked Oregon Ducks, the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes taking on the #3 ranked Michigan Wolverines, the Washington State Cougars visiting the #4 ranked Washington Huskies, the #5 ranked Florida State Seminoles at the Florida Gators and as always, Dan, Ross & Pat give their locks of the week.1:00 - Most interesting games of the weekend22:49 - #12 Ole Miss @ Mississippi State25:33 - #16 Oregon State @ #6 Oregon27:00 - #2 Ohio State @ #3 Michigan30:00 - Washington State @ #4 Washington32:34 - #5 Florida State @ Florida36:16 - Locks of the weekFollow Dan @DanWetzelFollow Pat @ByPatFordeFollow Ross @RossDellenger
Nebraska has lost three straight after improving to 5-3 following Saturday's 24-17 overtime loss in Wisconsin. This week, Hoss and Greg discuss the game, and predictably, spend a ton of time dissecting Nebraska's last drive. Huskers have the ball on the Badger 26 yard line with ninety-five seconds left in the game, three timeouts, trailing the home team by three points. The Huskers settled for a field goal, tying the game with four seconds left, forcing overtime. We know the rest. But believe it or not, the guys are on opposite sides of the clock management, play it safe or go-for-the-win approach. Hoss takes umbrage with some play-calling on both sides of the ball. But let's not overlook that the defense stood tall in the second half and provided the offense with the opportunity to mount a comeback. Iowa is all that stands in the way of Nebraska's return to post-season football, a 6-win season, and bowl eligibility. And those bastards just won the Big Ten West.

Offense vs Maryland Starts at 1:00 The annual "play like butt before the Ohio State game" game! JJ is banged up, how much did that effect him? Michigan turtled in this game after taking a convincing lead. The sun was brutal, looked like it made things difficult for receivers. Michigan's calls have been a bit predictable and they're not weaponizing play action as well as they could. The guards had a great game, the tackle situation just got more interesting. 2. Defense vs Maryland Starts at 33:30 This game was the full Taulia Tagovailoa experience - he does a few amazing things and then a couple terrible things. Ohio State's run offense isn't going to be much better than Maryland's. How much will Kyle McCord run against Michigan? Michigan rotated a lot this game but it feels like a lot of these guys deserved playing time. Would you rather go up against Taulia Tagovailoa or Kyle McCord next week? 3. Hot Takes, Game Theory, and Special Teams Starts at 1:02:15 Takes hotter than a Michigan fan watching a competitive game for the first time this year. It doesn't actually feel like the refs are out to get Michigan. The intentional grounding in the endzone never gets called so it was surprising. The two targeting no-calls felt right, the contact was not intentionally forceable on either. Tommy Doman earned 2 points on his punt that landed on the one. 31 points is too normal in a game where you scored two safeties. The wind must have been a factor on 4th down decision making for them not to kick field goals. 4. Around the Big Ten with NOT Jamie Mac Starts at 1:29:03 Iowa - 15 Illinois - 13 Iowa scored a safety to start the game. Iowa has clenched the Big Ten West despite having lost all their offensive weapons. Tory Taylor punts for 413 yards in an emotional senior day. If Michigan plays Iowa in Indy it will probably be like two years ago. Penn State - 27 Rutgers - 6 This game was about what you would expect. Drew Allar only has 79 passing yards but Rutgers was just never going to move the ball on this Penn State defense. Michigan State - 24 Indiana - 21 Michigan State's win expectancy in this was 12% with less than three minutes left. This has to be the end of Tom Allen. Who does Indiana get after this (or Michigan State for that matter). Northwestern - 23 Purdue - 15 Northwestern is bowl eligible! Purdue turns the ball over four times. Wisconsin - 24 Nebraska - 17 Chubba Purdy and Tanner Mordecai are back. Nebraska needs to beat Iowa to get bowl eligible now. Ohio State - 37 Minnesota - 3 This was the Michigan games sans that one big throw. Can you name the Ohio State backup QB that threw twice? Michigan could have a lot of new packages for Ohio State becuase we've seen so few all season. MUSIC: “Debris”— Reigning Sound “Loving Cup”— The Rolling Stones “Unthinkable”— Alicia Keys ft.

The goal was to win the West. The Hawks did that, with a game to go in the regular season. The West division clinched with a 15-13 win over the Fighting Illini this past Saturday. We talk about the grind it out victory for the Hawks. The run game being effective in spurts, Deacon having another one of his better games. We talk about how the Hawks made up the Cooper Dejean sized hole in the Defense, and how Tory came up big in his last outing in Kinnick. We discuss the emotion that was on display between players and coaches, most notably Brian and Kirk as it was clear the team played together and has grown closer than potentially any other KF team in 25 years. We talk Senior Day and the emotions and thoughts that run through you as a barrage of 'Lasts' come one after another..

This week it's a celebration on the podcast as Iowa has won the Big Ten West title after beating Illinois in Iowa City. Chuck Long weighs in on the adversity that the Hawkeyes have managed to deal with from a player and coaching perspective to win a division title. We break down the win over Illinois and what Long saw on the two touchdown drives for Iowa. How Iowa's offense is changing in the red zone with the use of some different plays and the development of Deacon Hill as a passer. Then on the second scoring drive, we talk about how Iowa is using the counter in the run game to spring Kaleb Johnson in the ground game. Then we turn our attention to the game at Nebraska on Friday. Is there a temptation to rest some players who are pretty banged up to prepare for the Big Ten title game? How do you handle practice on a short week? And we discuss Nebraska needing a win to make a bowl for the first time since 2016. Finally we pick some Big Ten games and discuss the Michigan vs. Ohio State rivalry.
Mason, Mark, Matt, and Patrick discuss all the big week 12 games in the Power Five. Texas and Oklahoma State hold on and appear to be on a crash course for the Big 12 Championship game, with Oklahoma and Kansas State regretting old losses. The Pac 12 seems to be a two-team race between Oregon and Washington. The ACC Championship game is settled: the Jordan Travis-less Florida State Seminoles will take on the Louisville Cardinals. The SEC will be the SEC again, and Georgia and/or Alabama will take their place atop the conference, while we all know the Big Ten West is a fun diversion for the winner of Ohio State/Michigan to warm up for the playoff against.The Program Roundup is proud to be sponsored by our good pals at The Fan Stop.

All Iowa football conversations this week start with Cooper DeJean's season-ending injury. That's how this episode of the Hawk Off The Press podcast begins with The Gazette's John Steppe and HawkeyeReport.com's Tom Kakert before moving into how Iowa put itself in position to win the Big Ten West and an early look at its offseason roster questions.
Welcome back to KickStart! In this Week 12 episode, we're diving into some intriguing matchups and potential trap games. First up, Michigan faces Maryland at noon on FOX. Is this a trap game for the Wolverines, reminiscent of last year's Michigan/Illinois showdown? Meanwhile, Maryland is riding high after a game-winning performance against Nebraska. At noon on BTN, we have a battle for the bottom as MSU takes on IU. With both teams coming off losses to OSU and Illinois, will this be a game worth watching? Next, Purdue clashes with Northwestern on BTN at noon. Northwestern and four other teams are technically still in the West race, and Purdue is looking to build on its massive win against Minnesota. Rutgers visits Penn State at noon on FS1, with Rutgers seeming to slide since September. Can Penn State capitalize on the momentum from firing Mike Yurcich? Then, at 3:30 pm on FS1, Illinois faces Iowa. A win for Iowa locks up the Big Ten West, but Illinois is making a switch at quarterback, going back to Luke Altmyer. At 4 pm on BTN, Minnesota takes on Ohio State. Is this a potential trap game for the Buckeyes, or will they continue their dominance after Purdue dismantled the Gophers? We'll keep an eye on key players like Cade Stover and Emeka Egbuka. Finally, the nightcap at 7:30 pm on NBC features Nebraska against Wisconsin. With both teams on losing streaks, is there any reason to tune in after the Iowa game? Join us for analysis, predictions, and all the excitement in this Week 12 KickStart!
Two Guys Named Chris are devastated about Cooper Dejean's season ending injury for the Hawkeyes. What does it mean for the team in its chase to win the Big Ten West?

Plenty to talk about this week on the Chuck Long Podcast. We start with a look back at the win over Rutgers and the Hawkeyes scoring 22 points in the victory. Did we see the development that fans have been hoping for from Deacon Hill? What did Chuck think of the performance from the Iowa quarterback and did we see Brian Ferentz relax as a playcaller? We then talk about the continued amazing play of the Iowa defense. How do they keep getting teams to take the bait and play the way that they want them to play? How does Phil Parker keep this unit performing at a very high level? Then we look at the race in the Big Ten West. The race that Iowa is in total control of with a two game lead with two games to play. But, there are two tricky games left, including one on Saturday against Illinois. We look at the game and also peek ahead to Nebraska. Finally we wrap up talking about the mess at Michigan, James Franklin firing more coordinators, Jimbo Fisher getting paid to not work, and we pick some games.
Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse joins host Michael Rand for a look back at the weekend in sports. The four biggest teams currently playing could not have had a weekend of more significant opposites. Reusse gives plenty of praise to the Vikings and quarterback Joshua Dobbs. Minnesota won its fifth consecutive game -- all five without Justin Jefferson and now two without Kirk Cousins -- to improve to 6-4. The Wolves are the only local team hotter than that, with their winning streak up to six after an impressive win at Golden State. The Gophers football team, meanwhile, gave up 600 yards and 49 points to Purdue. Were we really talking about a Big Ten West title just two weeks ago? And the Wild gave up eight goals Sunday. They now head to Sweden, which might be good timing for everyone except Sweden.
Dan Wetzel, Ross Dellenger & SI's Pat Forde kick off the podcast reacting to the news that Texas A&M is parting ways with head coach Jimbo Fisher.Texas A&M made the decision to move on from Fisher after beating Mississippi State 51-10 on Saturday. Many felt that with the enormous buy-out Fisher is due that the university would've been more patient, but enough mediocrity had become enough for the Aggie faithful. The guys reflect on the Jimbo Fisher era in College Station and discuss the future of the Texas A&M job in general. The program has a lot of money and top-notch facilities, but will the next coach be able to get them over the hump>The Michigan football melodrama continued on Saturday with an impressive win over Penn State while coach Jim Harbaugh watched from a hotel nearby, serving the first of his three-game suspension. This does appear to be your father's Wolverine team, as they decided to close out the game by running the ball 32 straight times. On the other hand, this marks another loss for James Franklin against a top-tier Big Ten squad.Georgia reminded everyone who they are again on Saturday against Ole Miss. The crew discusses the evolution of the Bulldog offense and how they got on such a roll.Missouri notched a blowout win against Tennessee this weekend, which gives us a great look ahead to similar high-impact games for a 12-team playoff, where Mizzou would be making quite a push down the stretch.Controversy stuck as Arkansas players were seen watching the animated classic ‘The Polar Express' during halftime of their game against Auburn. While this may have taken place with redshirt players, Razorback fans aren't thrilled about the focus (or lack thereof) on football.Saturday provided many close games featuring top teams nearly falling out of the College Football Playoff race. Texas, Washington & Florida State all provided cause for concern after letting their opponents keep the games so close.Iowa garnered some credit from the guys for beating Rutgers 22-0, which basically cements them as the Big Ten West representative in the Big Ten championship game.To close out the show, Dan, Ross & Pat give out their Small Sample Heisman awards & as always, Say Something Nice.1:00 - Jimbo Fisher fired from Texas A&M17:22 - Michigan defeats Penn State without Harbaugh27:58 - Another missed opportunity for James Franklin32:30 - Georgia showed their strength against Ole Miss36:11 - The 12-team playoff is made for Missouri41:30 - What was Arkansas doing at halftime vs. Auburn?46:33 - Saturday's close games almost created pandemonium51:09 - Iowa blanks Rutgers 22-052:19 - Small Sample Heisman56:56 - Say Something NiceFollow Dan @DanWetzelFollow Pat @ByPatFordeFollow Ross @RossDellenger
Introduction: Host Michael Rand takes a look at Joshua Dobbs, the Vikings' starting quarterback on Sunday. As a fourth-round pick in 2017, Dobbs came into the NFL with a label already: likely backup quarterback, if he survived in the league at all. Those labels determine opportunities and the situations quarterbacks ultimately end up in. Is Dobbs' ceiling higher than his path would suggest? 12:00: Gophers football beat writer Randy Johnson joins Rand to unpack Minnesota's path after last week's 27-26 heartbreaking loss to Illinois. The Big Ten West title is still in play, but so is missing a bowl game entirely. 26:00: Will the Wild score enough? And can the Wolves take their good play on the road?
4.15 Iowa pulled another one out after a 0-0 tie at halftime to win 10-7 on a 52 yard field goal by Drew Stevens. A Big Ten West-like Rutgers comes to Kinnick on Saturday, and the Hawkeyes need to keep winning to take the West! It was an impressive debut for the Iowa Men's basketball team with a win over North Dakota. The newcomers looked good, and the offensive output came from a lot of individuals. 110 points!
After a weekend of football that came in which all the results came up black-and-gold. Eric and Ben try to sort out a mess of a Big Ten West. In this episode: -Eric dives into another brutal Gopher loss and comes to terms with the realities of being a Gopher fan. -An examination of the subpar quarterback play in the Big Ten: talent or tough defenese? -They muddle through a murky Big Ten West and speculate how it all plays out.

It has been a BUSY week for Iowa Athletics. HawkeyeInsider's David Eickholt and Sean Bock team up to discuss how the Hawkeyes continue to find a way to win, Kaleb Brown's first catch is a huge one and preview Rutgers. After football, the duo analyze Iowa basketball's first game. Sophomore guard Dasonte Bowen impressed and the four freshmen seem to be ready to immediately contribute on a significant level. They wrap up the podcast by breaking down the two new Iowa basketball signees and the impact of four-star offensive tackle Nick Brooks' commitment.

Host Tony Liebert reacts to the Gophers' last-minute 26-27 loss to Illinois. The Big Ten West is slipping away once again for Minnesota and PJ Fleck, Athan Kaliakmanis is improving, what does this loss mean for Fleck and what do they do from here?
This week on the Chuck Long Podcast we have a lot of ground to cover. We start with the news from last week regarding Brian Ferentz not returning for the 2024 season and what he thinks about the news. What should Iowa and Kirk Ferentz do next at offensive coordinator? Then we dive into the win over Northwestern and playing a football game at Wrigley Field. Long gives his thoughts on what it was like to see a game played there and how much he enjoyed watching the game being played there. We talk about the final drive for Iowa and how Deacon Hill threw the best pass that he has all season to Kaleb Brown to set up the game winning field goal. We also dive into Cooper DeJean playing on the offensive side of the ball and discuss if he should have a Wildcat package as well. The Iowa offensive line is really banged up. What should Iowa do as far as their run game this week. Then we take a look at the really bad Big Ten West and how Iowa is now in the driver's seat for Indy, but it won't be easy. We wrap up picking some games for the upcoming week.
Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse joins host Michael Rand for a look back at two games that were very similar -- but which elicited extremely different emotions if you are a Minnesota football fan. The Vikings pulled out a win for the ages on Sunday, rallying behind quarterback Joshua Dobbs. The veteran arrived midweek after a trade and was only in the game because of various injuries to Kirk Cousins, Jaren Hall and Nick Mullens. But Dobbs made big plays with his feet and arm, leading the Vikings to an improbably 31-28 win. Just a day earlier, the Gophers were undone by a backup quarterback from Illinois who conjured up his own late-game magic. The Gophers' 27-26 loss to Illinois on a late and long touchdown pass put a major dent in their hopes of rallying for a Big Ten West title. The path for the rest of the season and beyond only gets harder.
Bottom line: Iowa won. Three other Big Ten West teams that entered Saturday tied for first didn't. So the Hawkeyes' unconventional 10-7 win over Northwestern — a style of victory that is actually becoming conventional for Iowa — puts them alone in first in the West.We break down the game and the scene at Wrigley Field on The Final Score podcast.

Ohio State's next game is probably the closest thing on the schedule that resembles the idea of a trap game. OSU is coming off a hard-fought, emotional win over a top-10-ranked Penn State team and now will head on the road for a night game against a Big Ten West opponent. Wisconsin comes into Saturday night's game with a 5-2 record in the first year under long-long Buckeye Luke Fickell looking to put up a better fight than the first time he faced his alma mater in 2019 as Cincinnati's head coach. Stephen Means, Nathan Baird and Andrew Gillis use this Fridau episode of Buckeye Talk to preview Ohio State's Week 9 opponent and whether it can shut down another quality Big Ten running back in Braelon Allen. The Tyler Shoemaker joins the pod as usual to provide some of the best bets of the week both in relation to OSU and around the country. That includes whether or not to continue hammering home the point that maybe Las Vegas is a little too low on tight end Cade Stover's production. Then Nathan and Andrew rejoin Stephen as the trio gives their game picks, followed by Nathan giving Stephen a hard time for his conservative fake betting practices this season.
