    The Big Ten has started its Bowl season with two losses. While some Midwestern deluded fools here think that the top two Big Ten teams should play for the national championship because the league is sooooooooooooo strong, I've been predicting that the "Big" Ten would lose most of its bowl games. With 5 to go, they're 0-2 and IMHO neither Penn St. (playing Tennessee) or Iowa (playing Texas) have a chance. And two out of three loses to their top three isn't out of the question. So the Big Ten ain't jack!

    Ohio State may have a chance, but if so it should be the Big Ten's only post-season win this year.

    Texas Tech got lucky, as did Texas. Now OSU is gonna brutalize Florida and Michigan is gonna do the same to USC. And I thought Iowa sucked? They put up a good fight against Texas, when Iowa got a lot of bad calls against them.

    0-3. Losers always complain about calls.

    It won't be 0-3 for long. Wisconsin can beat Arkansas, OSU is way better than Florida, and Michigan's defense will crush USC.

    Perhaps it is because OSU is the #1 team and offense in the country, or had you not considered that possibility? Perhaps it has something to do with their QB winning a little thing called the Hieseman trophy?

    Perhaps that had something to do with the pathetic level of competition in the Big Ten. Colt Brennan should have gotten the Heisman.

    EDIT: OSU's offense is #15 in the nation, not #1. Florida which played a much tougher schedule is #21 offensively. http://msn.foxsports.com/cfb/story/6295082

    Exactly. And one of Michigan's safeties got injured during the 1st quarter. Also, Michigan could have won if that guy didn't commit the roughing the passer penalty.

    Colt Brennan? Are you insane? You sure speak highly of the WAC conference.

    In case your mommy isn't there to read it for you, that's 33/48 for 434 yards and 3 TD's against the team that finished 4th in the Big Ten.

    Excuses are like a******** except Michigan fans have way more than one. Better start thinking up some good ones; you'll need 'em by 8 PM tomorrow.

    As much as I hate USC, I can find no reason to disagree here.
