At the risk of sounding like an old man, how is it Week 8 already?

We’re now passed the midway point of the season, and finally the B1G picture appears clear. Nebraska is good but unproven, Iowa and Michigan State aren’t what they were last year, Wisconsin has its best team in a long time and Michigan and Ohio State are both legitimate playoff contenders.

The rest of the B1G appears to be a bit of a crapshoot. Well, except that Illinois, Purdue and Rutgers appear to be the basement teams.

So with how well we feel like we know each team, that should mean this week will be picked perfectly, right?

Don’t count on it.
