: This argument seems to always be made, but it is not based in fact. We have a lower chance to play in a bad weather game during the season than Florida State does.

to be "very run oriented" because of the weather later in the season. Tailoring the team's offensive scheme on the possibility of playing 2-3 games in cold or wet weather never made sense to me. Maybe it does for more northern teams like Minnesota or Iowa but not for us IMO. I feel this was part of the reason for the Big Ten's dismal Bowl record in the 70's and into the 80's.
