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
Bye week. Boring.
The Wolverines just need one more win to be bowl eligible. Think about that....
6. Penn State
At least you
are not beat Indiana
Crap...you are Indiana. Bye-Bye Kevin Wilson....
Big Ten West
Bye week...but now time for the QUADRANGLE OF HATE!
The Badgers easily took down Purdue. Now the real games begin...
That was Easy. Too Easy. Hope everyone is ready to freeze off some toes on Saturday!
Because the rest of the teams kind of suck....
Still waiting t see this harbor get docked one of these weeks....
If you can beat us but lose to NW...
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.
