You might note that two Big Ten teams play tonight, Minnesota and Rutgers. Minnesota should easily take care of directional U, but it's kind of important that Rutgers win their game against Wazzou. If you wish for the conference to look better nationally, the bottom teams need to win their non-conference games as much as the top. (Okay, well, not as much, but let's pretend it counts, it's the first damned full night, okay?)
I have no idea why they started Texas A&M vs Sakerlina so early, but that's when it starts. You get the SEC Network, you planned ahead, right? Same with the PAC-12 network?
Alla mostly know how this works, but just in case - there is a 24-hour waiting period before accounts go active which means you cannot post for 24 hours until after you've created your account. We know this is a pain in the ass, but that's how it has to be since some people cannot control themselves.
