Here is the second and final part of this installment of BHGP Roundtable. All four authors that contribute to BHGP were to answer 12 incredibly written questions... yada, yada, if you don't understand what's going on, refer to Part One. Six questions then, six questions now. Wow. Fun.
LEGEND (for those of you scoring at home):

EXPLANATION OF THE LEGEND: Again, go back to Part One to get the lowdown.
The final six questions after the jump.
Alrighty then. Here's Part Two.
Receiver With More Yards at the End of the Year -
Brodell, Stross, DJK, or Chaney
As much as I'd like it to be DJK (go ahead and have a seat, Vontae),
it's going to be Stross. Stross and JC came up through the Army AA game together, and when they're both healthy, they're a lethal combination. Look what happened when the line started giving Jake time against PSU, and look at who he threw to. Look at what Christensen and Stross did to the hapless NU secondary after halftime last year. It'll be more of that. Stross is big and athletic, and he's the type of zone stretcher that
If he can stay healthy, he's the most sure-handed receiver of the bunch, and this is the year where I can see JC keying on someone he's confident in and getting him the ball repeatedly. That man is Trey Stross.
DJK - He's most talented and I'm not convinced the other guys can stay healthy
(unless DJK's arrested and incarcerated between the time I write this and the time it's printed. If so, I pick Chaney because I heard he's black and the other 2 are white.).
While a couple of these receivers did their thing making future NFL DBs look silly (Brodell destroying Ross (:10 in); DJK schooling Ikegwuono(3:42 in)). The guy with the complete game is Trey Stross.
I realize the question was the WR having the most yards at the end of the year, and it very well could be Andy Brodell if Ken O’Keefe would open up the offense a bit, but we know that won’t happen. Stross has the best all-around game of the WRs on the team, and he's going to be
Worst Loss in 08 if it Happens - ISU or Minnesota
ISU's at home and early in the year, so if
ISU. It's at home. It's the killer September loss that could end this thing before it begins.
ISU - Losing at the Gophers would hurt, but losing to the Clones at home would be crushing. Not just because we're better than them, but because I hate them and another year of listening to their fans brag about a win would force me to leave the state for good.
Worse for me –
True Frosh to Make the Most Noise in 08
We don't know how loudly Casey roars, but this'll probably be one of either Brinson or Hampton, whoever comes out on top at tailback out of summer practice.
Honestly, with last year's dependence on freshmen (true or redshirt), I only see one true freshman avoiding a redshirt. If he's able to pick up on blocking schemes, Jeff Brinson will almost certainly get his fair share of carries, especially in the second half of the season when he's had more time to learn the offense and the coaching staff realizes Guillory is incredibly small and Paki O'Meara is, well, Paki O'Meara.
I was going to say Reiff, but I couldn’t remember if he committed to
The Big Ten Football Standings on
[Programming note from OPS: I hate that you said football, because I was definitely going to put in women's basketball. I also hate that you got the date right so I couldn't cheat.]
Bowl, if any,
Goes To This Year Iowa
There are no at-large BCS teams in the BXI this year, not after OSU gets smoked by USC (this is what USC does, people, they KILL their non-conference opponents) and nobody else on the Bucks' docket raises their SOS to championship level. Plus I think there's another faltering out there for OSU; they've been pretty fortunate with injuries over the last few years, so they're "due." Even if they run the table, though, they're still #4 or #5 and headed to the Rose Bowl. Hardly a shame, of course, but that means Cap One for PSU, Outback for
Number of Cows/Pigs/Etc... It Takes to Feed Recruit Casey McMillan
In tonnes or number? We need to know how big the livestock is. Otherwise you're just giving him babies, which A) are all gristle, and B) totally cheating. Also, are we talking per day, week, what? I think the better question is: McMillan effect on corn prices if he gets a taste for Doritos. I'm thinking: disastrous inflation.
Four calling birds. Three french hens. Two turtle doves. And a partridge in a pear tree. And the pears in the pear tree. And the pear tree. And that's his pre-breakfast breakfast.
Food prices continue to rise at an astronomical rate. "It’s the price of oil!", the pundits say. RUBBISH! The graph below shows the true impact on food prices, specifically the price of beef.
We will be lucky to order an 8 oz. rump roast at a restaurant by the end of the year for less than $50.
