Ohio State, 10-2 (6-2)
Wisconsin, 10-2 (6-2)*
Penn State, 9-3 (5-3)
Michigan, 10-2 (7-1)*
Michigan State 9-3 (6-2)
Nebraska, 9-3 (5-3)

FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR: Adolphus Washington
COACH OF THE YEAR: Brady Hoke

The South will NOT rise again!
Scum will will the "Legends" division and Wisconsin will win the "Leaders" division ( Only bc of Ohio State penalty). Scum will win B10 Championship 34-10. I hate to say it , but I believe it will happen. Go Bucks!
Wisconsin wins our division. Mich St wins the other. Mich St wins title.
I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.
Wisconsin will glide into the championship game. The other division will be close. I think Sparty ends up winning it, but Michigan and Nebraska will be right there. Nebraska may not have as much talent, but they get Wisconsin, Michigan and Penn St at home this year. My money is on Wisconsin to win the championship. I don't think Michigan gets to a bcs bowl game, with road games vs. Bama, ND, Neb and of course, tOSU.
You think Hoke will win the Coach of the Year award with a 10-2 season? I'm not sure that would get the award for him after their big improvement last season. If OSU goes 10-2 I think Urban would have a good shot at the award after a losing season last year.
"Michigan and "huge mistake" are synonymous"
I personally think it will be a two-horse race between Nebraska and Michigan in the legends. I think MSU is in for a rude awakening.
I don't think Hoke gets coach of they year, either unless the record improves. On that prediction, I will go with someone from the leaders division, but not Urban (is he even elgible?). I could see O'Brien or Beckman overtaking Wisconsin and earning COY.
I think Michigan makes it to the Rose bowl. Even if they lose to Alabama, ND, and OSU, but beat Nebraska they'll cruise to the B1GCG. They could still lose to Nebraska and make it, but would require some help from the rest of the league.
I hope you're right. Their defense is their crutch, but you have to score to win. I could see Sparty getting beat by any of @Michigan, OSU, NEB, @Wisc.
Those who stay will be CHAMPIONS!
@Hail I think you are right on the COY between O'Brien and Beckman. I think Beckman will either get it this year or next. Hoke will still be in the mix. An OSU coach can win a NC and not get B1G COY.
@Hail Could be. Michigan certainly has the talent to go to the Rose Bowl. Don't forget that they have lost to Sparty four years in a row. "When asked about whether or not Michigan is regaining its elite status under Brady Hoke after a Sugar Bowl win and recruiting success, Dantonio replied, "We're laying in the weeds. ... We've beat Michigan the last four years. So where's the threat?" Michigan could very well win that division, but I think it will be a very close three horse race.
Kirk Ferentz will win Coach of the Year. I mean isn't the award named after him, anyway?
I actually could see Nebraska winning the 'Legends'. MSU has a nice little win streak going against UM, so it will be interesting to see if UM can actaully take down Dantonio and Co. this season. I don't really want to see MSU or UM win the division, but I would love to see Hoke and Dantonio in a televised cage fight.
Unfortunately, since OSU is not eligible, I don't see anyone taking down Wisky for the 'Leaders' unless O'Brien can lead Penn State to the division title and championship game in Year One (which I doubt happens).
Ohio State, 11-1 (7-1)
Wisconsin, 10-2 (6-2)*
Penn State, 8-4 (4-4)
Michigan State 10-2 (6-2)*
Michigan, 8-4 (6-2)
Nebraska, 8-4 (4-4)
B1G CG - Michigan State 27 Wisconsin 21
COY - Mark Dantonio, MSU
FOY - Noah Spence, OSU
POY - Leveon Bell, MSU
OPOY - Leveon Bell, MSU
DPOY - Chris Borland, Wisconsin
Definitely could be close. I'm very confident we handle Sparty this year. Michigan State was the better team last year, and their Dline was in beast mode and they earned it. However,last year's game was out of the ordinary, to say the least. Denard had a staph infection and was weaker than normal, the wind was blowing up to 50mph and Denard isn't the best passer when it's calm anyway, and the coaches chose to call a playaction bootleg on 4th and inches which blew up, which ended any real hope of winning. They lose Cousins, their top 3 receivers, Baker at RB, and Worthy, plus others. That's a lot of leadership moving on. It's the only real game at home this year and we haven't won it in 4 years. We're going to win this game. I just hope it's a night game.
