It didn't change at all. Borges called the exact same **** he called all year. The only difference was during the OSU game where he himself admitted he threw the kitchen sink at them.

I hate to say it but Michigan deserves better and should be better. The national perception of our conference is not good to say the least and Michigan is a big part of that. OSU needs to pull their weight as well. Michigan St. and Wisconsin have been great for what they are, not knocking them at all, they don't have access to the same talent pool that OSU and Michigan do and yet they seem to out perform them. Penn St..........Well.........I won't comment on if they are responsible for their current situation, but I do expect them to get better in the next few years. Perhaps as a conference we shouldn't be so cheap and fork over some $ for top notch coaches/assistants. The conference makes way too much money to be so ****ty.

The Sconnies are hanging with SC so far. This game does have the feeling like it could get out of hand at some point.

Weird game, but Nebraska opens up their lead on what was literally a 99.9 yd TD. Play before had almost been a safety at the 1" line, and apparently the coaches said **** it and went for the long ball.

Had to be or tie for longest non-special teams play in football history. There was no space between the ball and their own goal line at the snap.

Good for Bo. Battle of two beaten up teams, he finally gets a bowl win over the SEC. Should ease up some of the offseason grumbling and give them positive momentum for recruiting.

Pretty good Rose Bowl as expected since it was two high quality teams.

Someone must have told the Big Ten this morning that they are actually suppose to play in these games.

Props to Sparty for winning the Rose Bowl against a good Stanford team.

Way to represent the Big Ten.

I think I have to say I was wrong. Michigan St is one badass outfit. Tough as all hell.

UCLA runs the Hokies right out of the stadium! Hope Hundley returns for next season.

If he returns, UCLA will be preseason Top 10.

Also, he needs some work, doesn't want to end up a flop like the Mayor.

There is a very good chance that happens. I would be sad. He has some real limits as a gameday coach but has some tremendous skills as a CEO/ program seller and recruiter. He's the real deal even with his flaws and he loves Penn State with all his heart. I wouldn't be surprised if he left even though they have 2 more bowl bans coming up.....and I wouldn't blame him. Our fans hate him and are completely ungrateful to him for managing the program thru the cloud of the NCAA and getting us back up to 9 wins and good recruiting classes. I know he is frustrated with the fact that South Florida recruiting has turned into AAU basketball if you know what I mean. Penn St. is his dream job. He will do very well there. His strength and conditioning program would work very well up there as well. I hope he stays but I doubt he will.

Hundley should return, he's still a bit of a work in progress.

Also, Baylor's defense got exposed against a good gameplan. I never liked their defense this year, just the Big 12 has been somewhat weak with passing offenses this year to attack them.

That is what pisses me off about Michigan. They do not improve over the course of the season. It makes no sense. The talent is there.
