Juice Williams, Daryll Clark hope to get on winning track. has the details of the friends' phone conversation this week.  Pretty sure one of the quarterbacks will get a win tomorrow...since they play against each other and all.

Trouble off the field in Minnesota.
  The Gophers had a sophomore linebacker cited for underage drinking and suspended two more players since last week's win in Evanston. has the facts and figures.

Find a new Homecoming opponent, please.
  With this weekend's date at Purdue in mind, Sippin On Purple wonders out loud why Northwestern has to always be the guest for Big Ten homecoming games.

Upset alert?  Bleacher Report writer Todd Kaufmann has a warning for the Buckeyes and Wolverines. 

Indiana not settling for "moral victories".  Unfortunately for the Hoosiers, their trend of settling for field goals instead of touchdowns in Ann Arbor left them dreaming of what could have been, as written in the Indianapolis Star.

Speaking of the Hoosiers... is ready to dub Bloomington "Ohio Stadium West", and Purdue fans would love for all the Ohioans traveling to IU to wear gray and spoil the Memorial Stadium photo op

Good news for Iowa.  Star offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga has been cleared to play after missing the last few weeks with a thyroid issue.

Is anybody going to cover this guy?
  Another week, another set of stories on the unguardable Eric Decker.  The Badgers have the unenviable task of slowing down Minnesota's star this time around, as detailed in the Journal Sentinel.  

Paul Bunyan confuses me.  Did you realize that Michigan and Michigan State are playing tomorrow for the Paul Bunyan Trophy, while Wisconsin and Minnesota are competing at the same time for Paul Bunyan's Axe?  Try keeping that straight and explaining it to your friends and family.  In related news, there is no truth whatsoever to the rumors that Penn State and Illinois are trying to win Babe the Big Blue Ox.

More Michigan/Michigan State.  In-state rivalries always garner a lot of coverage, and the Wolverines/Spartans showdown is no exception.  Bleacher Report gives an in-depth look at the matchup from fans of both schools (Michigan here, MSU here), the Detroit Free Press points out the Spartans are trying to get back-to-back wins against "Big Brother" for the first time since 1942, and some fans think Dantonio's obsession with Michigan has already cost his team wins in 2009.

Meanwhile, if Denard Robinson has a big game, this fan will be excited.  Over/under on how many days before he washes his forehead?
