RE: Week 2 Thoughts/Stream of Conscious Thoughts
Wisconsin managed to slumber thru another victory. Don't know whether to be worried about this being 2 weeks in a row or be OK that they played mediocre and still won easily.

Hey Rutgers, how do you manage to play great against the #7 team in the nation then come back and lose to Eastern fricking Michigan?

Maryland looked great again, dare I say for real?

So much for the "Northwestern will win the west" crowd.

PSU, solid again. should move up to 3 or maybe 2.

Finally, I'm a B1G guy and a B1G fan. When B1G teams play non conference teams, I root for the B1G (except for Iowa) that being said, I DID take some guilty pleasure seeing the smugness wiped off the faces of tOSU.

RE: Week 2 Thoughts/Stream of Conscious Thoughts
Few thoughts:
1. Oklahoma is a very, very good. I am not entirely sure how good the Buckeyes are. They definitely are continuing to have exactly the same problems though and not developing a deep pass will plague them against most major opponents. It is frankly amazing it hasn't led to more losses in the last 2 years than it has.

2. Great win by Iowa.

3. Minnesota was actually an underdog out west (hard as that is to believe). I think they'll be fine going forward. Indiana

4. I said I wanted to see how Purdue and Rutgers looked after quality game losses. We'll see how the season progresses, but Purdue soundly defeated a team who I have seen as one thought to compete for the MAC and Rutgers ended up loosing. They both will grow this season, but Purdue definitely seems more up to me right now.

5. Was surprised by the Illinois win. They were fairly significant underdogs if I remember right and maybe things are starting to finally right there.

6. Michigan underwhelmed in their win. Defense is fantastic though and I think they are definitely in the national title chase.

7.Penn State beat an instate rival whom you know put everyting possible into that game.

8. Nebraska was down huge early and almost came back. I'll give them some credit going forward for that, although we'll how things play out.

9. Northwestern...you will probably win 6-7 conference games after a very lackluster non-conference showing so far given past evidence.

10. Indiana continues to feel like a decent middle of the pack type team which is a good rise for them (if Virginia isn't just terrible). Hope a few more things go right for them this year.

That's a way of life in Piscataway. See 2004, following a win over Michigan State, lose to New Hampshire. A few other times.

Regarding IU.....although I knew they were 2-10 last year, I was shocked at how god awful Virginia was. I had assumed that it must have been a team chemistry thing last year, and that they'd be much better with Bronco (Bronko?) taking over. Nope. I didn't notice one player on their entire team that could be 2nd team ACC.....horrible.
