Just in case you slackers have gotten soft while consuming the likes of eggnog, mince pie, turkey, sausage-of-the-month samplers, too many fingers of scotch, etc., etc., we DO have a game coming up. There is much blocking, tackling, running, throwing, catching, kicking, and yes, holding to be done! I hope everyone's had a very, merry Christmas. But it's time to dig beneath all that wrapping paper and find your shoulder pads. They're in there somewhere. Put 'em on. We need you.
Seems no one in the media (surprise!) thinks we can beat USC. I guess because, well, they're USC and we are only champions of the consensus toughest conference in CFB. I will grant that this being nearly a true home game for SoCal, except for the stadium itself, may be worth 3-5 points, and that the Big 10's history in this game rather sucks. But, in the spirit of our 2016 board MVP, WeAre......WeARE!!
I think we're gonna win.
