    B1G is weak

    Not a bash on Iowa, just surprised how bad the conference is this year. Their top team is #12...
    Top 15 in BCS:

    Big 12- OSU (2), OKLA (6), KSU (14)
    SEC- LSU (1), Bama (3), Arkansas (8), S Carolina (13), Georgia (15)
    ACC- Clemson (9), VT (10)
    PAC 12- Stanford (4), Oregon (6),
    Big East- None (don't expect them to really)
    Non AQ- Boise (5), Houston (11)
    B1G- Penn St (12)

    We would be 8-4 if we had a big 10 schedule with a couple of non-con easy wins. Not afraid to say it.

    HAHA! I think it has to do with Ohio St not in the mix, and I also thought Wisconsin would be in the running for the NC.

    for the most part I had been really impressed with WI. Penn state looks to be getting better as the season goes, but in general I agree, the Big 10 is pretty marginal.

    Re: B1G is weak

    It's a shame that the Big10 will get 2 teams in the BCS.

    Not only bc they don't deserve it but bc it will push all turrible teams up a slot and they will get utterly dismantled yet again and the new years day bowls will blow.

    Re: B1G is weak

    The Big name programs from the Big 10 have really taken a HIT:

    OHIO STATE - IMPLODED
    PENN STATE - SOON TO IMPLODE

    Not a surprise; they've been regressing for years.

    PSU has been delicate as a flower all year with their geriatric coach and eked out wins against Temple, Purdue, and Indiana. They're the luckiest 8-1 team I've ever seen.

    It's called parity.

    I don't see this happening. Most of the predictions I've seen have the Big10 champ in a BCS bowl but that's it.

    Rivals.com College Football - Rivals.com 2011 bowl projections

    Scout.com: 2011-2012 Bowl Projections - Week 10

    NCAA College Football BCS Bowl Projections Week 10 - ESPN

    CBS Sports does have 2 Big10 teams, but they're Wisconsin and Michigan. Just don't see how Michigan would ever make it in after the losses they've suffered.

    Re: B1G is weak

    I deal with Husker fans all day who a year ago knew the big 10 was weak. All the sudden they are making the parity argument. Wisky looked good early but has fallen off, but they are still the only team in that conference that scares anyone. Penn St, Nebby, Michigan State, Michigan, Illinois and Iowa are all paper tigers.

    I wouldn't be shocked if Texas can crack BCS top 15 with their next win.
