Firstly, apologies for the delay in getting these hotly anticipated results to you fine readers. Life gets in the way of blogging sometimes - and sometimes that life is in the shape of a tiny pink blob that refuses to sleep between 11 PM and 6 AM. What are ya gonna do?
Heading in to the final week of the regular season, I held a slim one game lead over Dlando, meaning it would take a gigantic upset for one of us not to come down with the title. And would you believe it, Aaron actually made a go of things! Mr. Yorke went 4-3 in the last week, while most everyone else went no better than 1-6 . . . it was a bad week to be a BSD blogger making picks.
In any case, Dlando and I both managed to go 1-6! I tabbed Nebraska to keep it close against Iowa, while he liked Rutgers not to get blown out by Michigan State.
Every. Other. Game. We lost.
Seriously, it was like watching a bunch of middle schoolers try to slap fight each other for the season crown. It was awful.
Without further ado, I present to you the final standings from the 2018 Big Ten football season!
That’s right - your champion, the very best and brightest of the BSD masthead, managed to finish 3 games under .500. A coin flip is literally more intelligent than us knuckle-dragging keyboard-smashing writters.
But alas! A win is a win, and I will claim it with all of the force and verve that are mine by rights! I took on all challengers and emerged victorious! Now I take a somewhat-deserved break and hibernate until late August, when I will once again bring forth (mostly) incorrect taeks on how the Big Ten will do on the gridiron.
Until next season, dear reader!
