Big Ten Blogger Roundtable: Week 6

This week's questions come from http://www.blackheartgoldpants.com, an Iowa blog, lets get to it.

You know what? Screw your team. I hate your team right now; I'm an Iowa fan, and I have anger in my heart. Name your top conference rival, and assess their season to date. If you haven't played them yet (and I don't think anyone has), how are you going to do when that fateful day comes?

This is the absolute worst question to ask a Penn State fan. Who the hell is our rival? Technically its Michigan State, they play the Spartans every year on the same weekend in the schedule and play for a trophy, but no one cares AT ALL about Michigan State, they suck almost every year, in the 14 years this game has been going on Penn State has won 11 to MSU's 3. Some rival. I think most PSU fans would buy into OSU/Michigan/Wisconsin territory but all those teams have more distinct rivals than the Nittany Lions. Michigan State has played very well under new head coach Mark Dantonio; they are 4-1 with the one loss coming last week to the Overrated Badgers.

If your season to date was an album (or CD, for all you young hippety-hoppers), what would it be and why?

"Revolver"-The Beatles
Only in the way that as Penn State seasons go this one is alright, but just like Revolver it is a little disappointing, The Beatles had done much better work...Rubber Soul, The White Album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band...just like 82', 86', 94'. (I know someone will kill me for saying Revolver is weak, BRING IT ON!)

If you had three minutes alone in a locked room with any coach from your team and you could bring any item along (nothing sexual, tOSU fans), which coach would you choose, what would the item be, and (how badly would you pummel Ken O'Keefe) why would you choose that item?

If I had to pick it would probably be Galen Hall and bring with me a video of poor play-calling because its obvious that he doesn’t know what a bad play is...namely a toss wide at the 1 yard line...

BONUS QUESTION

Your best friend Harry has a brother Larry. In five days from now he's gonna marry. He's hoping you can make it there if you can coz in the ceremony you'll be the best man.

Subquestion A: Larry is obviously a loser. He has so few friends, he has to ask his brother's best friend to be his best man. What Big Ten team does he favor when not playing with Lord of the Rings figurines?

Well if he is a nerd, which playing with Lord of the Rings figurines implies, he is with out a doubt a Michigan fan, someone who is too wrapped up in his one Bull Shit to go out and make friends so he doesn’t have to pick you to be his Best Man...by the way, why isn’t his brother being the best man?

Subquestion B: Five days from now is Saturday. Your team is on the road. Do you (A) stay home and watch the game; (B) road trip, or; (C) say "neato," check your libido, and roll to the church in your new tuxedo?

C: You can’t pass up a wedding! Those are great free booze and dancing! Besides your buddies can keep you informed about the under thrown passes and fumbles that are bound to be occurring at about 4:30 or 5:00.
