BTB Pick ‘Em (Week 10)

Hope everyone had a nice Halloween. I threw together my outfit in the last second and transformed myself into “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski. Much like the Dude, I was a rather lazy bum getting my picks up for this weekend in time and thus, am putting them up now with the early Big Ten games nearing halftime.

First, here’s the updated standings:  Since the Nittany Line has obviously given up, I won’t bother bolding him anymore.

1 Gopher Nation 95
2 Ground Zero East Lansing 91
3 Happy Hour Valley 88
4 Eleven Warriors 87
4 Lake the Posts 87
4 Black Shoe Diaries 87
4 Paint the Town Orange 87
8 Maize’n Brew 86
8 Michigan SportsCenter 86
10 Zombie Nation 84
11 Enlightened Spartan 83
11 Off the Tracks ™ 83
13 Hoosier Report 82
13 Varsity Blue 82
15 The Buckeye Blog 80
16 Maize & Blue Nation 78
17 Boiled Sports 76
18 Buckeye Battle Cry 75
19 The Only Game That Matters 74
20 Sparty MSU 73
21 Hawkeye Sports News 72
22 BHGP (HS) 61
23 The Nittany Line 60
24 Nittany White Out 35

Central Michigan v Indiana – Hoosiers will have their hands full with future MAC-to-NFL star Dan LeFevour QB’ing Central Mich’s offensive attack.

Wisconsin v Michigan State – You will have to check your calendar to make sure it’s the year 2008 and not 1998 when these two “three yards and a cloud of dust” teams go at it.

Northwestern v Minnesota – They may not look pretty doing it, but Minny continues to find ways to win games.  I wouldn’t expect anything spectacular from a Northwestern team missing its key players at QB (C.J. Bacher) and RB (Tyrell Sutton).

Iowa v Illinois – Shonn Greene should rack up his share of yards against a weak Illini defense while Iowa’s D will contain Juice Williams & Co.

Michigan v Purdue – Look for Michigan’s improved running game led by Brandon Minor to run all over Purdue’s shoddy defense.

BONUS PICK:  #1 Texas v. #7 Texas Tech –  Don’t get me wrong: Graham Harrell and Colt McCoy are likely in a dead heat for the Heisman Trophy, Michael Crabtree is the nation’s best receiver, and Tech’s defense showed significant improvement last week against a solid Kansas offense.  However,  Lee Corso putting on Texas Tech’s mascot head cursed the Red Raiders.  Texas will come out fired up tonight, ready to prove their doubters wrong…Give me the Longhorns by 7.
