Notice *Note for above B1G grid ... "12/7 Saturday -- Huskers vs. B1G East at Indianapolis"... God said so !
It’s the SEC road to the championship formula. If it works, might as well keep doing it until it stops working.Amazing how weak the non-con schedules are for the majority of B1G teams. Iowa does that nearly every year. I get they have to schedule Iowa State, but they've only recently become decent. Ohio State, Indiana, Maryland, Wisconsin, and Illinois are pretty weak, no P5 teams?? That should never be a thing IMO. I can get the lower teams not scheduling a P5, but OSU and Wisconsin? That's weak sauce.
It sincerely makes me nervous when I keep seeing people saying this. I don't think that Illinois is a very good team, but they have talent, and they beat the crap out of Minnesota in a way that we didn't, and they have almost everyone back. I think that they have a 50/50 shot at going .500 and making a bowl game this year, and that means that they'd have to upset somebody. I don't want it to be us.I would lump Illinois in as a bye.
I had no idea how S. Florida did last year so I had to pull up their record. Not very good in the AAC but they did knock of Ga Tech and Illinois. That game could be more interesting than expected, though I think Wisky will push them around on both lines pretty bad.South Florida Bulls was kinda tough. Wisconsin at S. Florida. IMO, Wisky's schedule equal to our Huskers schedule.
That will be a game film that Frost & company will be able to use to see how they matched up against South Florida's formations. It's very helpful as a coach to be able to see film of that from as close as possible to when you play them.I had no idea how S. Florida did last year so I had to pull up their record.
