After watching the MSU and Iowa games, you have to feel good about next week. The Big 10 clearly just does not have the athletes to run with teams from other conferences.

If we can minimize mistakes the game will be 10+ win unless it starts to snow.

I think Iowa be alright up front and we will have trouble getting to their QB.

However, they simply won't have enough speed to stop guys from getting out on the edge.

On offense, I would expect a lot designed bootlegs and WR screens.

Also, not impressed by their WR's, although they have good size they have poor technique getting out of their cuts. This is a chance to be very aggressive on defense, since they are simply not going to out run us.

If we don't turn the ball over like Iowa State, we should be just fine. I can't wait for this weekend. The wife and I go out to Iowa on Thursday morning.

Agreed.

Even ND is running all over Michigan as we speak.

And Wisconsin had to go to 2 overtimes against Fresno State to win. Big 10 looks more like the Small 10. Penn State looks legit though.

They're the only team that looks legit, unless OSU can beat USC.

PSU will spank OSU at home.

I didn't think PSU looked that good. Syracuse is a terrible team.

And yes, I agree - the Big 10 is falling behind other conferences. The speed of the Pac-10 and SEC will give any B10 team nightmares. The strength, sophisticated offenses, and coaching in the Big12 trumps anything they have in the B10. Even the ACC's middle-tier teams would be good teams in the B10 - Wake Forest would probably finish third.
