One of the main storylines in the Big Ten entering this college football season was all the dual threat quarterbacks. Well so far, I’d say it’s really only Wisconsin‘s Russell Wilson and Nathan Scheelhaase who fit that bill. Michigan’s Denard Robinson did throw for over 330 yards and 4 TDs, but he is an average...

B1G 10 Football Season Predictions

There’s four good teams in the Big Ten this season and five more that could be good or just blah.

Lennon also gave us one of my all-time favorite quotes: “life is what... Read more »
