Minnesota and Wisconsin are playing for an old-fashioned weapon named after a mythical giant lumberjack; next door, Michigan and Michigan State throw down for a lovingly-rendered likeness of the very same giant; TCU and SMU are head-to-head for the only object that used to matter in north Texas, a skillet. They may pay you, but you will never earn such spoils at the next level, barbarian gentlemen.
What: Game day live blog. All games in play and all comments welcome.
When: First kick at noon Eastern; chat kicks roughly simultaneously. The blog will run throughout the day, through at least the primetime tilts. Don't hold your breath for the midnight theater of Colorado State at Idaho (10:30 p.m. ET, ESPNU).
Who: You and all your rowdy friends. Come loud and proud, but legal requests metaphorical axes only, please.
How: Hit "Watch Now," enter comments into the available box and do your part to accelerate the slow, agonizing death of conventional journalism.
Why: Because dropping strategic bombs filled with snark and satire on earnest adolescents never gets old. Football!
