    We don't play Michigan or Ohio State next year, We'll finish Top 4 in the Big 10 next season.

    Oh, and we're off the Radar which is very good for us.
    You're on my radar.

      How does Minnesota have a chance to score against Ohio State? Michigan might be better than OSU but no way OSU is losing any other games.

          I could see tOSU going down the road of PSU last year. I think they will be decent, but I don't trust who ever is playing QB.

          I think PJ Hill will start getting shut down as he will be keyed on and there is game tape now.

          Michidan's defense will cost them a game or two.

          PSU will continue to suffer on offense and it will cost them a game or two.

          Iowa doesn't even play a decent team this year and should be kicked out of the big-10.

          Northwester and MSU are going to be terrible and at the bottom.

          Juice will win the heisman.

            Easily Michigan: Best QB, RB, WR, and OL in the Big 10. Some question marks on Defense but they should be fine.

              at Indiana-Win

              North Dakota State-Win
              at Michigan-?
              Illinois-Win
              at Iowa-?
              Wisconsin-?
              Let me revise this for you.

              Purdue- Loss
              Ohio State- no chance
              At Indiana- Close call... IU has as much talent as Minnesota does tho
              Northwestern- Tossup
              North Dakota State- win
              Michigan- Loss
              Iowa- Loss
              Wisconsin- Loss


              Amir Pinnix is a serviceable runningback. He's a 1000 yard rusher, but I don't think many people are going to gameplan on trying to stop him. Anyway, who else is coming back that will be of any reasonable talent on minnesota? Returning 9 players on defense is cool if they're all good or have a high upside, but returning 9 bad players on defense simply means you'll have 9 crappy players who've played for another year...


              Here are my rankings for the big 10...


              1. Wisconsin (most complete team in the big 10. Good d, good o.. good coach)

              2a. Michigan (I like michigan a lot, and they scare me, but their defense is going to be even scarier for Michigan fans. If Lloyd doesn't open the offense up more to score more points, they're not going to win more than 10 games. Furthermore, the loss of Adrian Arrington is going to hurt)

              2b. Ohio State (The obvious losses on offense will take their toll, but all the tough games are reserved until late in the season, which will give the young players time to step in and be experienced. Ohio State IMO is an opposite case of Michigan. Return a dominating defense, with questions on offense. Simply a matter of how well the offense steps up.)

              3. Iowa (I like Christianson a lot. More upside than Tate. Furthermore, they'll return a healthy albert young, a more experienced Dominique Douglas, not to mention a slew of other highly experienced players. They should be an 8 win team this year who will threaten some upsets against Wisconsin, Michigan, and OSU.

              4. Penn State (I almost wanted to put PSU lower. I just don't see anything out of this team that makes me think they'll be winners. They havent had success on offense since they ran the spread option, and they're far from switching back to that with Morelli. Morelli may improve, but I wouldn't bet on him becoming any better than a John Stocco or Curtis Painter type quarterback. Their defense took some hits this year losing poz and a few linemen, and I just am not sold on Dwill and the rest of their supposed star players. Conner and King will have to carry their d, but I dont think it'll be enough.)

              5. Purdue (Underrated team. They return a decent quarterback who can manage a game pretty well, a few defensive players, and some real talented wide receivers. They'll be a decent team who'll make a bowl game, but nothing special.)

              6. Illinois (Obviously they're a young team, but they have a lot to look forward to. They should beat up on the low level big ten teams (minnesota, Indiana, Northwestern) and have a lot of young talent with high upside and another year of experience. Juice Williams is the big name, but their biggest break out star this year could easily be freak tight end Jeff Cumberland. I would put them higher, but the experience factor along with zook factor has me putting them a bit lower.)

              7. Michigan State (they lose stanton, seem to always have a bad defense, and need a fresh start. However, they return a real talented coach, and a good runningback in Ringer. We'll see how they do next year. They could really surprise people however.)

              8. Indiana (They have a decent quarterback who has some experience, a very good receiver in Hardy, and some experience back. They'll still be bad, but they won't be as bad as some of the other teams now.)

              9. Minnesota (I can't name a decent player on this team aside from Pinnix. I have a hard time seeing them win many games this year. They do have good upside with coach Brewster, but it'll take a year or two.)

              10. Northwestern (Same case as Minnesota, but replace Pinnix with sutton and theres your team.)

                gstock, I may be wrong, but I believe Arrington was only a junior last year. Or maybe there was a different reason he wouldn't be back?

                  Iowa is overrated every single year no matter who they have at QB.

                      Last year when they were preseason ranked #3 in the Big Ten. People just love Fernandez (or whatever his name is) because he was mentored by Belichick.

                        What about last year, Mark May was basically sucking on Drew Tate's **** the entire season.

                          And I'm pretty sure us Iowa fans weren't. We underachieved last year more so than we were terrible.

                            Underachieve is an understatement

                              I believe Adrian Arrington was kicked off the team, or won't be playing next year. Not positive, but something of the sort. A michigan fan would know better.


                              Iowa won't be a "great" team next year, but they return lots of experience, have an easy schedule, and hopefully will be health.

                                Ohio State will come in second at the worst in the big ten next season. They have an easy shedule and a great defense. i think that once wells starts getting 20-25 carries per game and running the clock we will roll. Only games i see us having the ability to lose are at michigan and v. Wisco. We will beat wisco since we are at home and will beat michigan because we don't lose to llllloyd carr.
