. . .Big Ten teams have lost outright when favored by 10+ points 15 total times. Iowa has lost 9 times; the rest of the Big Ten has lost 6 times.
Why draw attention to it? At least for your team anyway .
Who are the other six?
Pretty sure Indiana isnt on that list.... its been 10 years since they were favored by more than 10
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Thread is full of win
The guy who tweeted about it didn't provide a list, but I can do some research and see what I can find.
Michigan has at least one of them vs App St.
bump for that!
pretty sure we were picked by more than ten when we lost to Purdue two years ago
In 2008, Michigan lost to Miami OH When they were a 14 point favorite and,
Toledo when they were a 16 point favorite.
That's 2 more.....
Michigan was a 19 point favorite over Indiana. Guess what happened?
I've seen a few others. Adding up all the ones I've seen, it definitely seems like the stat I read was wrong. Maybe Iowa has 9, but it definitely seems like there are more than 6 more.
Keep paying your coach more and more.
Sadly, the problems in Nebraska are in the coaching offices and the fans that sit in the seats and defend them.
And we got popped by Illinois in 2007.
IMHO, $3.8 million a year and a $20 million buy out is worth mediocrity. How much do you think mediocrity is worth?
You never know, he may jump to the NFL.
Another interesting stat:
Since 2005, Big Ten teams are 34-4 when a player rushes for 200 or more yards. Iowa has 3 of those 4 losses.
