Guess I should have stuck with the Buckeyes a few weeks ago...

As a member of the "working media" we get requests to help out other "media" in their articles and pursuits.  Then sometimes we get to steal their ideas and content for our own gain.  Thus, we bring you the Big Ten Power Poll!

I am a voting member in two power polls this season on other websites.  If you want to compare my votes to other "writers" from around the Big Ten, I'm sure they would love a click as well.  Check out the Rutgers Blog www.SalSoothsayer and another blog covering the whole conference, www.talking10.com.

Here is the poll after week 10:

Big Ten East

1. Ohio State

Well...they definitely earned this spot.  Would love to see the Gophers send them backwards next week...but not likely.

2. Michigan State

SPARTY NO!!!

3. Maryland

Bye week.  Boring.

4.Michigan


The Wolverines just need one more win to be bowl eligible.  Think about that....

5. Rutgers

Yawn.

6. Penn State

At least you are not beat Indiana

7. Indiana

Crap...you are Indiana. Bye-Bye Kevin Wilson....

Big Ten West

1. Nebraska

Bye week...but now time for the  QUADRANGLE OF HATE!

2.Wisconsin

The Badgers easily took down Purdue.  Now the real games begin...

3.Minnesota

That was Easy.  Too Easy.  Hope everyone is ready to freeze off some toes on Saturday!


4. Iowa

Because the rest of the teams kind of suck....

5. Purdue

Still waiting t see this harbor get docked one of these weeks....

6.Illinois

If you can beat us but lose to NW...

7. Northwestern

Yuck...

Overall

In case you are a pre-divisions purist, and want to see how teams stack up overall, here is my overall Top 14:

1. Ohio State     +1

2. Michigan State    -1

3. Nebraska  NC

4. Wisconsin  NC

5. Minnesota   +2

6. Maryland   NC

7. Iowa          -2

8. Michigan  +1

9.  Rutgers   -1

10. Penn State   NC

11. Purdue     NC

12. Illinois    +1

13. Northwestern       -1

14. Indiana     NC

Welcome back to the top Ohio State.  You earned it.  Minnesota gets back up to the #5 spot after demolishing Iowa.  The bottom is just....ew.
