This is a really top-heavy conference, with four teams likely to be in the top 25. The poll is in the order I think these teams will finish.

By the way, I had to leave out Indiana since I'm only allowed 10 options. I hope nobody gets too upset about that one, seeing as how they suck...

The Hawkeyes are going to be sick this year.

Plus they had one of the best recruiting classes in the nation. Which means they are going to be sick for years to come, look out big ten.

And this is coming from a Nebraskan whos job is to hate Iowa.
j/k TDK I love Iowa. :cheers:

Ohio State..why?
Because they have one of the top two playmakers in the nation in Ted Ginn.
Because they have a top wr in Santonio Holmes
Because they have the best linebacking corps in the nation.

Michigan will win the big ten this year.

1. They have the best backfield in the conference with hart and grady.
2. They play Ohio State at home.
3. Steve Breston will have a breakout year
4. The defense can only get better then it was at the end of the year.
5. Chad Henne will only get better.

I believe that the Big 10 conference is the strongest one this year. 4 teams have a legitimate chance of winning it. However I only think purdue has a chance to win because of a soft schedule ( No U of M or Osu). Unfortunitly for the big ten they will probably all lose at least one game which takes them out of the National title game.

What about Abdul Hodge and Chad Greenway? I haven't ever seen a MLB/WLB combination this good.

Wisconsin?

Because they have 1 returning starter from last year's defense. :goofy:

No, it's on Michigan.

Michigan looks great and they got my vote, but you have to look at Purdue do to the fact that they don't play Michigan or ohio st.

I don't think it's too farfetched to say that that a top five recruiting class isn't gonna really have too much of an impact on THIS years record

Michigan will win the big ten this year.

2. They play Ohio State at home.
Michigan will win the Big Ten because...that's what they do. They'll loose to ND, but beat Ohio State because...that's what they do.

Wow, looks like Michigan's taking a huge lead. I really think some of you are overlooking Iowa, though. Maybe it's just because of Michigan's past and it's huge bandwagon. Michigan's not a perfect team, though. (For an example of a perfect team, see: University of Southern California.) Their defense scares me...in a bad way. Marlin Jackson and Ernest Shazor are gone. The Texas offense tore the defense apart. Gabe Watson gets hyped up, but he hasn't shown me much. Surely, all your hopes are not lying in Steve Breaston; it's only his first year starting.

Iowa's has the best QB in the Big 10. Solomon/Hinkel might not be as good as Holmes/Ginn and Avant/Breaston, but it's very close. Solomon and Hinkel are both very solid, and Solomon had 905 receiving yards last year. I also like the veteran o-line, LBs, and DBs. Playing Michigan at home is nice, though Ohio State at Columbus could ruin Iowa's national championship hopes.

Bump. Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio State all lost. So, is Purdue now the favorite?

I like Ohio State to win the Big 10, as they lost to the toughest opponent and put up the best fight. It's tough to rule out Purdue, though.

I'll eat my words concerning Iowa.

Non-conference game don't matter. I still think that it will be Iowa.

Yes, you're right that they don't matter concerning who wins the Big 10. But after this week, you do have to re-consider who the best team might be.

After the pitiful offensive performance by Iowa, I can't consider them them good enough to win the Big 10. Michigan looked weak on both sides of the ball. Ohio State had a pretty good game against Texas, but I still think they should have won at home, and this loss showed some uncertainty at QB.

So right now, I think Purdue is the best team in the Big 10. And usually, the best team in the conference wins the conference.
