  • Pre-Season Big 10 Teams and Predictions

    Yeah, I'm friggin bored and thought I'd put a list together. Critique away.

    QB: Chad Henne, Michigan
    RB: Mike Hart, Michigan
    RB: P.J Hill, Wisconsin
    WR: Mario Manningham, Michigan
    WR: James Hardy, Indiana
    TE: Travis Beckum, Wisconsin
    OL: Jake Long, Michigan
    OL: Kirk Barton, Ohio State
    OL: Adam Kraus, Michigan
    OL: Jordan Grimes, Purdue
    OL: Marcus Coleman, Wisconsin

    DE: Vernon Gholston, Ohio State
    DT: Jason Chapman, Wisconsin
    DT: Terrance Taylor, Michigan
    DE: Matt Shaughnessey, Wisconsin
    LB: J Leman, Illinois
    LB: James Laurinaitis, Ohio State
    LB: Dan Connor, Penn State
    CB: Jack Ikegwuonu, Wisconsin
    CB: Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State
    S: Anthony Scirotto, Penn State
    S: Jamar Adams, Michigan

    Return Man: Marcus Thigpen, Indiana


    Predictions:

    Wisconsin will lose at least 2 Big 10 games: @ Ohio State and vs. Michigan
    Michigan will win the Big 10 :)
    P.J Hill will NOT lead the conference in rushing this season.
    Anthony Scirotto will miss the Florida International game but that is it for his role in an off-campus fight.
    Austin Scott will rush for 1100+ yards
    Anthony Morelli will suffer through another mediocre year despite having probably the best WR corps in the conference.
    Both Penn State and Michigan will beat Notre Dame
    Illinois will make a bowl game.....IF Juice Williams can complete 50% of his passes
    Arrelious Benn will be the Big 10's Freshman of the Year
    Albert Young will crack 1,000 yards this year.
    Mike Hart will crack 1,500 yards.
    Chris Wells will be loads of fun to watch and loads of trouble to bring down.
    Derrick Williams will put up the worst numbers for the top 3 WR on Penn State.
    Wisconsin will disappoint, while Illinois will surprise some.
    Jake Long will be a top 3 pick in the draft next season.
    For the third straight season, Tyrell Sutton will surpass 1,000 yards.

    QB-Chad Henne
    RB-Mike Hart
    RB-Beanie Wells
    WR-Mario Manningham
    WR-Dorien Bryant
    TE-Travis Beckum
    OL-Jake Long
    OL-Alex Boone
    OL-Kirk Barton
    OL-Jordan Grimes
    OL-Adam Kraus

    DL-Vernon Gholston
    DL-Kenny Iwebema
    DL-Terrance Taylor
    DL-Maurice Evans
    LB-James Laurinaitis
    LB-Dan Connor
    LB-J Leman
    DB-Malcolm Jenkins
    DB-Jack Ikegwuwoniwonwonw
    DB-Jamar Adams
    DB-Justin King

    There are a lot of good DBs this year. Jenkins, that Wisconsin guy, Adams, King, Vontae Davis, Kurt Coleman, Scirotto, AJ Wallace, Otis Wiley, plus a few sleepers. PJ Hill, Mike Hart, Chris Wells, Tyrell Sutton, Austin Scott and Javon Ringer are all gonna break 1000 yards this year. Good year for RBs in the Big10 too. Hill, Hart, and Wells will probably contend for all-american honors.

      kinda biased Sniper.. but I would be too.. watch out for Wisconsin I'm telling ya

      players to watch

      Tyler Donovan-QB- has really matured and is a much more dynamic quarterback than Stocco was

      PJ Hill-RB- should have a great season now that he's more experienced and had the offseason to recover and train

      Travis Beckum-TE- this guy is just a phenomenal athlete

      Jonathan Casillas-LB- an amazingly quick linebacker who should rack up a bunch of tackles

      obviously Ikegowounu too

      some questions at on the o-line as far as who be the best choice

      sig by me.. first in ages, pm with requests

        Not that I agree with everything but I do like your thinking.

        I personally am high on Rashard Mendenhall from Illinois. I think he could easily be the 3rd or 4th best RB in the Big Ten next year behind Hart, Wells, Scott/Hill.

        You got to take Jamar Adams of the DB list and put Justin King or Otis Wiley instead. And while I really like James Hardy I think the other WR spot goes to Dorien Bryant. Also isn't Nick Hayden the better of the two Wisconsin defensive tackles? I may be wrong here.

          I think the Standings will end up:

          1. Michigan
          2. Ohio State
          3. Wisconsin
          4. Penn State
          5. Iowa
          6. Indiana
          7. Illinois
          8. Purdue
          9. Michigan State
          10. Minnesota
          11. Northwestern


          I think OSU/Wisconsin/PSU are all close (i.e. PSU beats OSU, Wisc beats PSU, OSU beats Wisconsin).

            Yes I forgot Mendenhall too. Michael Hart, Chris Wells, PJ Hill, Rashard Mendenhall, Tyrell Sutton, Javon Ringer, Amir Pinnix, Austin Scott, and Albert Young. That's a pretty good group of RBs for just one conference.

              Kinda biased? Where? I put Beckum, Hill and Ikegwuonu on the list. What else do you want from me? Henne is the best QB, Hill and Hart the best HB, and who is better than Super Mario?

                I did a S position, not four DBs. If it were just 4 DBs and not 2 CB and 2 S, King would be on it. It's hard for me to put Bryant because he may be more of a product of the system.

                  9. Jake Long, OT, Michigan
                  10. Chad Henne, QB, Michigan
                  11. Justin King, CB, Penn State
                  12. P.J. Hill, RB, Wisconsin
                  13. Jordan Grimes, G, Purdue
                  14. Matt Shaughnessy, DE, Wisconsin
                  15. Shawn Crable, LB, Michigan
                  16. Kirk Barton, OT, Ohio State
                  17. Dorien Bryant, WR, Purdue
                  18. Jason Chapman, DT, Wisconsin
                  19. James Hardy, WR, Indiana
                  20. J Leman, LB, Illinois
                  21. Anthony Scirrotto, S, Penn State
                  22. Taylor Mehlhaff, K, Wisconsin
                  23. Sean Lee, LB, Penn State
                  24. Dustin Keller, TE, Purdue
                  25. Willie VanDeSteeg, DE, Minnesota
                  26. Marcus Coleman, C, Wisconsin
                  27. Chris Wells, RB, Ohio State
                  28. Curtis Painter, QB, Purdue
                  29. Terrance Taylor, DT, Michigan
                  30. Kellen Lewis, QB, Indiana
                  31. Deon Butler, WR, Penn State
                  32. Adam Kraus, G, Michigan
                  33. Albert Young, RB, Iowa
                  34. Jamar Adams, S, Michigan
                  35. Anthony Morelli, QB, Penn State
                  36. Tyrell Sutton, RB, Northwestern
                  37. Chris Norwell, DT, Illinois
                  38. Marcus Thigpen, KR, Indiana
                  39. A.J. Trapasso, P, Ohio State
                  40. Amir Pinnix, RB, Minnesota

                  Somebody actually watches the big ten and saw Jack Ikegwuonu stick to glue like receivers. Unlike some of the homers and big name school jock riders here. Justin King and Malcolm Jenkins are good players, but c'mon...Ike is special.

                  2 losses for Wisconsin is more of a worst case scenario. I think that's a lot of cognitive dissonance from a Michigan fan, because they might need Wisconsin to falter to win the conference, and also over confidence head to head because of past successes in very hotly contested contests. That head to head success is really disproportionate to the relative program strength (Wisconsin should win at least a third, if not 2/5 of the time) of the two schools. That's why I think Wisconsin gets much more respect from OSU fans. OSU, conversely to Michigan, loses to Wisconsin a disproportionate amount of time. But new season, brings new players and expectations. This is Wisconsin's best. Adjust your paradigm. Wisconsin is the team to beat in the big ten according to many unbiased national sources.

                      Did I or did I not put Ikegwuonu on the list which included only 2 CB? I like him a lot and I like the Wisconsin team a lot. Michigan won't need Wisconsin to falter, we'll just beat you and win it ourselves. Wisconsin is breaking in a new QB who is untested and not proven at all, sorry if I'll take a 4 year starter ahead of him. The defense, led by Jack, should damn good. People are just assuming Wisconsin will build on last year's results (while good, they got manhandled by Michigan) and Wisco does have to break in a new LT as well, because apparently the guy that left was pretty good;). I also don't agree with Ikegwuonu being the top player in the Big 10, Jake Long says hello. Long is incredible and was as good as Joe Thomas last year, if not better. However, I would put Ikegwuonu in the top 5 in the conference and probably the top CB. Wisconsin fans need to stop this "Everyone hates us" crap. Let it go. You played one of the big boys from the Big 10 last year and got rocked, sorry Tyler Donovan doesn't inspire fear. Load up seven or eight in the box and I'll take my chances

                        PR: Derrick Williams , Jr. Penn State

                        Predicted Standing:
                        Wisconsin: (12-0) (8-0)
                        Michigan: (11-1) (7-1)
                        Ohio State: (10-2) (6-2)
                        Penn State: (8-4) (4-4)
                        Iowa: (8-4) (4-4)
                        Purdue: (7-5) (4-4)
                        Illinois: (7-5) (3-5)
                        Indiana: (6-6) (2-6)
                        Northwestern: (6-6) (2-6)
                        Michigan State: (3-9) (2-6)
                        Minnesota: (5-7) (1-7)

                        Wisconsin has the most starters returning this year and they have handled business in the horse shoe 3 of the last 4 times they have been their. The Wisconsin vs. Michigan game will be the key game. I know I have some bias but I dont see how Michigan can be so dominant again with only 4 RETURNING STARTERS on defense.

                          Predicted Standing:
                          Wisconsin: (12-0) (8-0)
                          Michigan: (11-1) (7-1)
                          Ohio State: (10-2) (6-2)
                          Penn State: (8-4) (4-4)
                          Iowa: (8-4) (4-4)
                          Purdue: (7-5) (4-4)
                          Illinois: (7-5) (3-5)
                          Indiana: (6-6) (2-6)
                          Northwestern: (6-6) (2-6)
                          Michigan State: (3-9) (2-6)
                          Minnesota: (5-7) (1-7)

                          Wisconsin has the most starters returning this year and they have handled business in the horse shoe 3 of the last 4 times they have been their. The Wisconsin vs. Michigan game will be the key game. I know I have some bias but I dont see how Michigan can be so dominant again with only 4 RETURNING STARTERS on defense.
                          By returning some of the best in the country at QB, RB, WR (X2), LT, LG, LB. They also have Donovan Warren who will play a lot as a freshman who looks like a shutdown corner. Either way, Wisconsin vs. Michigan will be unreal.

                              In my opinion Chad Henne is over-rated, haven't really seen him do anything special.
