A Brutal Day?



I caught the 2nd half of the Southern Cal vs. Ohio State debacle tonight while putting the finishing touches on a Power Point presentation.  I paid attention long enough to hear Brent Musberger declare Saturday was a “brutal day” for the Big 10.  ABC then proceeded to show a chart of all the Big Ten games from the day:

Michigan State BEAT Florida Atlantic…17-0

Minnesota BEAT Montana State…35-23

Illinois BEAT LA Lafayette…20-17

Northwestern BEAT Southern Illinois…33-7

Iowa BEAT Iowa State…17-5

Penn State BEAT Syracuse…55-13

Purdue LOST to #16 Oregon in OT…32-26

Michigan LOST at Notre Dame…35-17

So, to recap, at that point in time the Big 10 was 6-2 on the day, with losses AT Notre Dame and in OT to a Top-20 team.  Also, Wisconsin went on to beat Fresno State 13-10…and Ohio State lost 35-3 to USC.

The Big 10 was 7-3 on Saturday…BRUTAL!

In related news, though I’m strongly opposed to making a game out of drinking alcohol, I found this to be a rather clever commentary on Mr. Musberger’s game-calling style.
