Big Ten Football
Horrible week for the Big Ten.
The worst performances (in no particular order).
Akron is currently winning by 11 AT Northwestern. What has happened to NW this year?
Kansas beats Rutgers 55-14. I'm still not convinced Rutgers has a program that can be competitive in the Big Ten.
Temple over Maryland by 21 in Maryland! Yikes.
Nebraska loses at home to TROY. Are you kidding me?
BYU going into Camp Randall and beating Wisconsin.
What a tough tough week for the Big Ten. Thank goodness Ohio State is winning under the Bright lights and prime time or today might be a "worst day ever" scenario for Big Ten football.
Big Bucky fan for football(hate their hoops though), but I've never been a huge fan of the football conference. Last year they seemed top end good, this year??? Also, look at the bottom feeders of this disaster. Rutgers, Maryland (two great adds to the conference), Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, and need I say Illinois!! Then throw in the mediocrity that is Iowa, Northwestern and Nebraska? Ohio St and Penn St. can be great on any given day, but can also be average on any day. Michigan, Michigan St. ? Not good by any stretch. More average than good. That leaves Bucky. What are they? Who are they? Love their defense. Love their receivers and O line. I don't like the fact that Hornibrook can't move much and throws a bunch of picks. I hope they crush Minnesota, and then play well in Indy. Who knows? Are they a top 4 team? Probably not. Do they deserve to be in the dance at 13-0. I would say yes. You can only beat who's on your schedule.
Ha Ha. Nebraska winning 10-7. Glad I don't bet. Still think Penn State will roll. And, just how good is Ohio State? Unbelievable. How do you get up on teams 28-0 so early? They might win by 60 today....What a machine. Sill don't know what happened at Iowa.
The bummer about Wisconsin being on the weak side is they never seem to have those big games on the schedule like yesterday's Michigan/MSU. Kind of a boring schedule this year actually for the Badgers and the buzz is not really there. Other than Alabama, there really hasn't been a game that makes you super excited. Iowa. Maybe.
You put an Ohio State on the docket any week and immediately there is more interest. I think next year's schedule UW finally gets some of the better teams from the other side. Will be nice to play Michigan State, Michigan, and Ohio State again. Just makes it more interesting.
Edit: Oh my goodness. If you haven't seen the Badgers schedule for next year yet....take a look. Much better Big Ten competition. Gonna be fun.
