PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
It's still September.
Long way to go, things will tighten up as the weeks go on.
I haven't seen them yet, but think Northwestern is second best right now.

Yeah thats what im worried about, its September and we are mostly playing nobodys and losing a lot of games. I agree that NW is the second best team but I dont think they are on ohio states level not even close.
The conference is bad, REALLY bad, but that shouldn't surprise us. It was horrible last year with little reason to think it should have been any better coming into this season.
There is no second team... there is the Buckeyes carrying the entire conference and then a bag of trash. Hell Maryland and Rutgers (not even Big Ten yet) looked better than any teams currently in the conference. Its just getting frustrating... do we not have the athletes, bad coaching strategy... just cant fathom the conference is this bad.
I really think it's the coaching more than anything else. Lower tiered B1G schools used to still grab guys from Texas and Florida, maybe not a bunch of 5 star players but still quality talent. Hoke can recruit, but I've yet to see any evidence that he can coach. Dantonio can field a solid D but that's it. Pellini is a joke. BOB is good, but with the sanctions his program is up against he's fighting a losing battle and he'll end up leaving. The coaching in the B1G is just a trainwreck. Coaches are what draw the big recruiting classes too. Who wants to come play for most of these clowns?
I think you are right, coaching is the main problem. I was watching Sparty vs ND and I couldnt keep myself from yelling at the tv. They have no offensive rhythm what so ever. That game was easily winnable it just looked like they didnt want it.
Feel the same way. Rutgers & Maryland looked good, Indiana seems to be improving. Penn State is one of our staple schools is going to be down for a couple more years. Nebraska has been disappointing of late. Northwestern is moving in right direction . Iowa is a joke but could they really snag a better coach? I think Purdue is the worst team in the B1G followed by Iowa.
Definitely NW. tOSU should handle them fairly easily
B1G Power Rankings:
1. Ohio State
4. Ohio State's Scout Team
5+. Who cares
Northwestern is the second best team in the B1G. Now we pray that Oregon, Stanford, or Clemson lose at some point this season. Clemson will have to play FSU and/or Miami at some point this season. LETS GO BUCKS!!!
THE URBANATOR AND HIS BOYS' JOURNEY HAS JUST BEGUN; 26-0 IS COMING BABY!!
This year no conference is really standing out to me.
The Big 10 - OSU and NW
Sec - LSU and Alabama and both have looked human.
ACC - Clemson, Florida State and Miami
Big 12 - This conference is a mess
Pac 12 - Oregon, Stanford, Ucla and Washington
I would say SEC and Pac 12 probably the two best conferences.
