Big Ten Power Rankings, Week 7

What the hell should I do now? The current topsy turvy Big Ten continues to see teams at the top lose. You thought Michigan was good? Nope. Iowa the team to beat? Ha ha. Ohio State? Can't stand success. Michigan State? laughable. Wisconsin? Only until they play Northwestern. Minnesota beats Michigan but still comes screeching back to earth.

1) Wisconsin - luckiest team this side of the Rockies for their great escape in Minnesota. But what the hey, they've only got 1 conference loss and already have wins over Michigan and Minnesota.

2) Penn State - got bounced in Ann Arbor (again), but at least made it a hell of a game. I think they could win the rest of their games.

3) Ohio State - extremely lucky that MSU spartaned themselves once again last week because they didn't look very good.

4) Iowa - is this 2004 deja vu all over again? We'll see how they do with the up and down Wolverines coming to town.

5) Minnesota - woulda, coulda, shoulda still doesn't count as a win. A fluke loss is still a loss. Etc.

6) Michigan - are they capable of winning consecutive games? Maybe, maybe not.

7) Northwestern - Nice Ws over Wisconsin and Purdue.

8) Michigan State - every year they watch their season implode and this is shaping up like a typical Spartan season.

9) Purdue - yep, they suck.

10) Indiana - theoretically they could still make a bowl game.

11) Illinois - baaaaaaaad

"MSU spartaned themselves once again last week"

Bwah! I think you just coined a word, and I know EXACTLY what you mean.

even MSU fans would know what that means. It seems like every year they find new ways to blow what could be a great season.
