    Though to be fair, since Thorson has been able to play a full game, they have only lost to the current #4 team by 3 points, and gave the #3 all they could handle for about 55 minutes.

    These divisions are a disgrace, IMO. I mean 6-4?? It's a rotten look, it really is.

    Overall record doesn’t matter. They are 6-1 in the games that do. And the East has a Maryland and Rutgers 2 auto wins.

    Pat Fitzgerald is the best coach in both divisions, hands down. Has been so for years. This should be no surprise to anybody....unless they have been living in a cave.

    One thing about Fitzgerald’s teams, they always get better as the season goes along. For crissakes, they lost at home to Akron.

    The Big Sissy division is probably going to be fairly wide open every year. There's just no UM, OSU, PSU OR MSU. Wisconsin and Nebraska are the best bets with Iowa in there behind those two.

    I think it's totally unfair to MD, Rutgers and IU. Take Purdue, Illinois and Minnesota for example, they'll be able to occasionally win the Big Ten West because the real fire power resides in the East division. It's just an unfair advantage that will actually serve to prop up a Purdue, or an Illinois, it's horse shit.

    kinda wondering how many more seasons like this one the A.D. at Wisky is willing to tolerate, especially with a pre-season Heisman RB and typically humongous OL?

    Then why are we 0 and 2 against that division? Where does that put us?
