    Conference Spotlight: Big Ten

    [​IMG]


    Conference Predictions:

    1. Ohio State (benbuckeye). The Buckeyes are full of veterans led by Heisman favorite Terrell Pryor. This team is loaded and everything relies is on Terrell Pryor. He has no excuse this season as Ohio State is one of the best teams in the country. If they play like the talented team they are they should be looking at their 6th straight Big Ten Title and possible national title appearance.

    6. Michigan (JerzeyReign). A young team that showed they are capable of winning. Last year they finished terribly, losing 5 of their last 6 games after a 5-2 start. Forcier has a year experience under center and the always Denard Robinson looked very good in spring practice. If their defense can keep opposing offenses in check this team could easily win 9 games this year.

    8. Illinois (NDColts). After a big letdown last year (3-9) things look slightly better this year for the Fighting Illini. They've lost their starting QB from a year ago but not much of anything else. We don't know if that is good or not only time can tell.

    If I'm steppin' on anyone's toes or ideas just let me know. I'm just bored and decided to do this. And these are real life opinions mixed with mine. We don't know how well of a challenge this game will give us so only ben has pressure on 'em with that talented team.
