In my opinion, it's way too early to tell. The exhibition season just ended so we will need to wait a few weeks and see how things shake out once teams have common opponents to compare with and then play each other.
None of the above should be a choice.
Indiana and illinois are ver similar. Good offenses that have terrible defenses. I'll reluctantly take illinois.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
It was their "Bowl Eligible" clause that made it tricky.
My write-in vote would Massilon-Washington
Tom Crean listens to Nickelback...
I'm not sure the word "best" should be in any question regarding 6-6 teams.
I'm not convinced any of them will make it to 6-6.
This reminds me of the time I was asked what my favorite "shitty" beer was.
I'm sorry for not being sorry.
What was it?
Sat there and thought about it and I don't have answer. I can't separate any of the three from the others..
While Ohio State's intramural football team isn't bowl eligible, they still might be able to beat all of these teams.

I think we can't look passed Indiana. They gave us a run last year and their offense is better. But our defense should play better than it did against them last year and our offense is better. We'll see.

Who cares with two more wins TOSU is finally bowl-eligible. GO BUCKS!
I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
I can't believe I just picked Illinois.
Illinois has the best win... I'm still not sure any of them are bowl-eligible at the end of the season.
I think the "bowl eligible" qualifier was put in there to exclude Penn State, not to say that any of the other three will necessarily make it to bowl eligibility.
Choosing between these teams is like choosing between crab juice and mountain dew
Definitely cringed while trying to decide on this poll. Yikes.
My first thought was "could 'Yikes!?' be an option?"
The poll options just gave me a headache. Thanks.
Indy has already lost to Navy and Mizzou, so it seems very unlikely they'll go 4-4 in conference play in order to be bowl eligible. I picked Illinois, but I'm not convinced they're much better than last year either.
Puredoo - nuff said
I was holding my nose as I picked one, really a sad situation in the Leaders Div. I hope the B1G in the future will have better competition not just inside the B1G but also nationally.

Seriously, who voted for Purdue?
Sorry, the stench between the three to vote for was too strong and I was overcome by the fumes as I hit my selection. Should have waited until my head had cleared… newbie mistake.
When pinching your nose it is natural to say PU, so don't knock yourself out over the selection.
I never make the mistake of arguing with people for whose opinions I have no respect.

I have no idea why.

Illinois wins this cripple fight of who doesn't suck the most.
"if irony were made of strawberries, we' d all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now."
I picked Illinois, only because I thought this was a joke.
Don't give up... Don't ever give up.
This is the hardest poll question of the season
It's between Illinois and Indiana.
Indiana home game vs Illinois
Illinois has better win - Cincy
Illinois has better loss - Washington
Illinois has Wiscy at home, like it means something.
Purdue sucks. They'll be lucky to finish 4-8.
Until Indiana gets some kind of defense I choose Illinois.
