I was in Michigan over the weekend and picked up a Detroit Free Press on Monday and Drew Sharp sure isn't impressed with the state of football in the Big Ten:
How big a deal is it now, for Michigan State to beat Michigan?
It'll be a bigger deal for this program if next week it beats a Wisconsin team that's clearly the class of the Big Ten. Of course, being the best football team in the Big Ten is the equivalent of being the best hockey player in Ecuador.
This wasn't exactly a ringing endorement for the Big Ten. If anything, this was verification of what's wrong with this conference in relation to others that are...you know actually relevant nationally.
Their (Michigan's) best hope for the remainder of the season is that the Big Ten collectively is worse than even I had ever imagined this season.
That said I am impressed with Wisconsin although I wonder if their lack of competition will hurt them come Bowl time. I'll be interested to see how their game with Mich St goes this weekend.
The weak Big Ten seems to have contributed to the Wolverines over ranking. MSU proved that Denard Robinson is a one dimensional QB and if you can force him to pass, you will win. This bodes well for OSU as they are very capable of doing exactly that
