Of late there's often a 4-loss team in the top 15...Occasionally a couple ('07, '08).

Not nitpicking, just thought that was odd. Ill get one in before the week is over. Im not really up to date on the big ten too much, since my team doesnt play in the big ten and nationally only a couple of the teams are relevant. Ill have to read up on the Northwestern/Indiana/Illinois/Minnesota type teams before I can make any sort of informed prediction.

I went back and changed some games around, hope I didnt screw something up in the process. Looks ok to me at the moment. I submit this knowing full well I likely know the least about the B11 of any of the contestants involved, and fully expect to get demolished. I could barely name anyone on teams like Purdue/Illinois/Indiana/Minnesota/etc.

I won't be able to do a full prediction here but I would like to play if it is not too late. I would start by saying all teams will win their first week except minnesota.

I will post my full predictions this weekend if that is still allowed.

Yeah, just make sure the season-end projections are consistent with your first week results and not the first weekend's results.

I'm 22-2 so far! Pretty good, though it is only non conference... The only games I missed were Indiana v. Ball State (decided by 7 points) and Iowa v. Iowa State (decided by 3 points in the 3rd OT)

The standings haven't been updated since the season began. I hope you don't mind that I counted them up...

1. mr0zip0 --- 46-11 (.807)

1. SpartanValor --- 46-11 (.807)

3. Edman85 --- 45-12 (.790) 1 GB

4. lionstigersand… --- 44-13 (.772) 2 GB

6. Hongbit --- 40-17 (.702) 6 GB

7. Johnny Mac --- 39-18 (.684) 7 GB

I’m guessing Shelton either PM’d Edman a schedule or is just not competing this year.

Didn't think this was worth a new thread. Current ESPN big ten power rankings, and no I don't agree with UM at 2.

Link

Wisconsin is looking down at the rest of the conference after its dominating performance against Nebraska. Michigan deserves some love after eviscerating Minnesota, while Illinois keeps finding ways to win. Michigan State continues to play lock-down defense, while the rest of the conference doesn't look good at all.

There's not a ton of shuffling in this week's power rankings, but the league race is starting to take shape.

And away we go ...

1. Wisconsin (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten): After stomping subpar nonconference foes, Wisconsin turned its attention to Nebraska and rudely welcomed the Huskers to their new league with a 48-17 beat-down. Quarterback Russell Wilson is the big story, and for good reason, but the entire offense continues to click and looks practically unstoppable. The defense, meanwhile, capitalized on Taylor Martinez's mistakes as Wisconsin pulled away. The win left no doubt that Wisconsin is the team to beat in the Big Ten.

2. Michigan (5-0, 1-0): Minnesota is horrendous, but we're beginning to buy into this Michigan team. The defense has made some significant strides after a historically poor three-year stretch, and Denard Robinson leads a dynamic offensive attack. Michigan got creative against Minnesota and everything worked in a 58-0 romp. We'll learn more about the Wolverines as they hit the road the next two weeks against Northwestern and Michigan State. But so far, so good.

3. Nebraska (4-1, 0-1): We're keeping the Huskers here for now, but we need to see a much better performance this week against Ohio State. Coach Bo Pelini said he was embarrassed by his team's defensive performance in Madison. While Wisconsin makes a lot of defenses look bad, there's something wrong with a Blackshirts unit that entered the season with such promise. Nebraska also needs to stick to its run-based offense as Martinez still can't avoid momentum-killing mistakes.

4. Illinois (5-0, 1-0): Football is all about response and finding ways to win, and Illinois has displayed plenty of fight and fortitude this season. The Illini are making mistakes that normally get you beat, yet still finding ways to pull out the Ws. After the defense secured wins against Arizona State and Western Michigan, the offense stepped up in a big way against Northwestern. Quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase was brilliant in the second half, and A.J. Jenkins showed why he's one of the Big Ten's best receivers.

5. Michigan State (4-1, 1-0): It wasn't a pretty game in Columbus, but Michigan State will gladly take its first win at The Shoe since 1998. The Spartans have defined themselves as a defensive football team this season, as their D smothered Braxton Miller and the Ohio State offense all afternoon. Defense can carry teams a long way, particularly in difficult road games, and Michigan State will be a squad to watch during what is shaping up to be a competitive Legends division race. The offense still must eliminate mistakes in plus territory.

6. Iowa (3-1, 0-0): The idle Hawkeyes move up a bit before opening the Big Ten season this week at Penn State. It's a critical game for two teams that have the potential to improve as the season goes along. A Hawkeyes offense surging behind quarterback James Vandenberg and a talented receiving corps will face a Penn State defense that has been brilliant for most of the season. Iowa's defense, meanwhile, has a chance to gain some confidence against the Lions, who still lack an offensive identity. If Iowa can continue its win streak against Penn State, look out for Kirk Ferentz's crew.

7. Ohio State (3-2, 0-1): It's a coin flip between Ohio State and Penn State here, as both teams have significant problems on offense and good defenses. Both teams also have one semi-quality win -- Ohio State against Toledo, Penn State against Temple. Fortunately for us, the Rockets and Owls played Saturday and Toledo crushed Temple 36-13 in Philly. So congrats, Buckeyes, you're No. 7 for now. Better go fix that offense, though.
