Monday AM Quarterback...
For the first time in history, the Big Ten went a perfect 11-0 on opening weekend. Not too shabby even if there were no big games on the slate to kick off the season. A few of the victories definitely fall into the "lackluster" category (Michigan and Michigan State come to mind) but wins are wins and the Big Ten loaded up on them.
Things get a lot tougher this weekend with teams like Minnesota looking at possible streak breaking match-ups on the road. The Golden Gophers have won 17 straight non conference games but travel to play what one would predict is an angry and hungry Cal squad. Ohio State takes to Austin, Penn State heads to South Bend and the Illini have a road battle at Rutgers.
Team of the Week: Minnesota. Who would have thunk it that a convereted linebacker would be the next yard gaining, touchdown scoring machine at tailback for the Gophers?
Get Gamm Standings...
A solid start to Get Gamm with a few unbeatens. The winner was Buckeye Nation, one of five to go 11-0. Buckeye nailed the tiebreaker (differential in the OSU game) and gets to pick this week. BN, send me your picks by Thursday (firstname.lastname@example.org).
