Let the attrition begin!
Wow was it a battle last week in the Big Ten. Penn State gets everyone within reach of Michigan State on Sunday and then - WHAM - every one starts beating up on the other. Penn State loses what could amount to two very costly games. Purdue goes down twice and is looking at what life is like without Robbie Hummel (not nearly as good, that's for sure). Wisconsin gets two huge wins after a six game losing streak. Illinois splits. Northwestern drops a critical game. Minnesota gets clipped twice. Ohio State got two killer home wins to vault back into the race. And in the end, the team that entered the week in some trouble - MSU - wins two to reclaim a two game lead.
Buckeye Nation moved to the top of the leaderboard and gets to pick this week. Maybe I'll actually have time to get my picks in on time this go around!
Without further ado...
