BSD's Big Ten Challenge/Thursday Night Open thread Week 9

Frank Beamer isn't having the year he expected - Streeter Lecka

Winners and losers of this week's Big Ten Challenge

It's a huge week of football in the Big Ten, after this Saturday we'll know a lot more about who's in charge. Michigan State and Michigan have big games that could decide their fate and there's the little game in central Pennsylvania lovingly known as The Bowl of the Banned. Whoever wins that game will be in the driver's seat of the Leaders division. Before all that action though, we have our usual Thursday night game and FINALLY we have a game that starts before you have to put the kids to bed. Tonight we get two ACC teams sitting at 4-4 when Virginia Tech heads down to Miami (of the Florida variety) to take on the Hurricanes. This should be a good one so stop on by to talk shop while the games on.

On to the stats...

This week the guys (and girl) are all over the board as we only agree on the Good Guys (we're shameless homers). The battle of the beaten (and broken) is a toss up, the team can't decide who's worse; Indiana or Illinois. I had a sneaky suspicion that Navy would beat Indiana last week and I have the same notion about Iowa this week. Yes Iowa looked horrible against the Good Guys but the Hawkeyes always seem to follow up disaster with a strong performance the following week.

So what say you oh loyal reader?

My Ballot Box
Indiana @ Illinois




Iowa @ Northwestern




Michigan State @ Wisconsin




Ohio State @ Penn State




Michigan @ Nebraska
