    An inside look at conference standings.
    [​IMG]
    In BfR, our ultimate goals are to win our conference and eventually the National Championship. However, tradition has been in the past for the Big Ten champion and Pac Ten champion to meet in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. We are going to show you the race so far even though it is still very early in the season. Some big things have happened and it looks like a wide open race in both conferences.​

    I know it is still very early but let's get some predictions going.
    • Will there be anybody in the NC?
    • Will we see another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl game?
    • Who will surprise us?
    • Who will let us down?
    • Who do you think could be a break out team next year?

    • Will there be anybody in the NC? I say maybe a 1 loss Big ten team
    • Will we see another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl game? Yes
    • Who will surprise us? Illinois makes a run and screws up some seasons
    • Who will let us down? Sorry but with two L's those Trojans have done that already
    • Who do you think could be a break out team next year? I think Penn state continues to improve.

    Week 9 - Will update this later but we have some moves already being made.

    Iowa suffers their first loss of the season while Michigan moves to 1st place in the Big Ten.

    Oregon drops from #2 as they lose to USC.

    • Will there be anybody in the NC?
    • A: will be very tough to pull off, but maybe a 1 loss ohio st.
    • Will we see another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl game?
    • A: Iowa vs ....STanford? prolly not though ...vs CAL
    • Who will surprise us?
    • A: Diddy and the boiler makers are my pick to make a run late.
    • Who will let us down?
    • A: USC has taken that by storm
    • Who do you think could be a break out team next year?
    • A: Probably ASU. Frisk has a potent offense. With experience under their belts, they may just pull of a pac 10 title

    Best bets would be Stanford or Ohio State. Stanford still has games against Oreg St and Cal and Ohio State's last 4 opponents are a combined 22-4. Either would be deserving if they won out.

    Will there be another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl Game?
    I think so. The two teams mentioned above are probably the front runners.

    Who will surprise us?
    Purdue over Iowa was the surprise. Sandwiched between PSU and Mich, Purdue v Iowa was a classic trap game. Still, who saw that coming?

    Who will let us down?
    Michigan. Unfortunately, it's only a matter of time before the offensive inconsistencies and defensive undisciplined play catch back up to us. EMU caught us because we thought we were the shit. Now we have won 5 straight and risen back to #6 in the country. Time for the fall.

    Who do you think could be a break out team next year?
    Still looking at Penn St. With some improvements in the offseason and a year under their belt with the new system, they should be ready to challenge.

    • Will there be anybody in the NC? Maybe the Michigan-Ohio State winner
    • Will we see another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl game? We should, my guess is Stanford- Ohio State
    • Who will surprise us? Oregon State, OK- I post this after their win over the Cardinal
    • Who will let us down? Sdid, USC is a major letdown, the reason= #115 in turnover margin
    • Who do you think could be a break out team next year? Purdue definately gets the honors this season, but for 2013, I will say Cal

    Tuco, you just hit that bump in the road man. that winning streak is the longest i've seen and the most impressive in an OD when you play 4-6 user games each season. Trust me, you have built a program and you will be in contention every year.

    • Will there be anybody in the NC?
    Honestly, it's going to be tough for anyone to make it to the big game. The Big Ten is a gauntlet and the pac 10 is coming around now.
    • Will we see another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl game?
    absolutely, my guess is Purdue vs Oregon State
    • Who will surprise us?
    BK has been doing great, and I think diddy has played awesome this season. He's really done a great job with the Boilermakers
    • Who will let us down?
    Me, I always let myself down in big games. I am my hardest critic
    • Who do you think could be a break out team next year?
    Im going to say Arizona State. Frisk is a recruiting monster, and he knows how to get those top flight Receivers in.

    • Will there be anybody in the NC?
    Don't think anyone from our OD will make it that far this year
    • Will we see another Big Ten vs Pac Ten Rose Bowl game?
    At this point I am thinking it will be Ohio State vs Stanford.
    • Who will surprise us?
    Sdid is doing a remarkable job with the Boilermakers!
    • Who will let us down?
    Oregon continues their up-and-down rollercoaster over the last three years. Obviously last year was an up year...guess what year this one is?
    • Who do you think could be a break out team next year?
    Oregon State has shown that they can compete right out of the gate. I think one season under their belt and the Beavers will be serious contenders for the PAC-10 crown. As a Ducks fan, I should probably slap myself across the face for this paragraph.
