Just want to win out, would be nice to make the B1G championship somehow but just win out and let's shock the nation in 2024.
It is more realistic than one would think.
How sad is it that the teams still fighting for our division title are simultaneously fighting for bowl eligibility with three games left? Gonna miss the Big Ten West. Again, I would love some sort of simulator, as I too easily lose track ... but for anyone with a space brain, these are the current standings (again) with the remaining Big Ten West schedule. I would have to figure Iowa is feeling pretty good, but that last game being in Lincoln can make things interesting.A lot on the line for Minnesota this weekend. This is their easiest remaining game on the schedule (Purdue) but they need to win this to become bowl eligible. If they lose to Purdue, they have Ohio State next weekend (loss), which means everything would be on the line in the Bunyan trophy game.
Moved some posts to this thread to better highlight the thrilling Big Ten West race as we approach the week 11 games. Go Illini
I think of it more as lacking dominating team(s). The teams everyone expected to be stronger are weaker and vice versa. Note how Indiana and Northwestern perform vs expectations. Wisconsin, Purdue and Illini. Iowa’s severely unbalanced efforts are hilarious. Imagine them in a Indy thumping! Keeps things interesting. Every single game matters and each is capable of a surprises.What a mess, haha. I don't even know how you figure out those tiebreakers! MAN, are we going to want that Wisconsin game back.
If I'm reading the boxes correctly, one thing that Iowa has avoided all season is defensive scores by the opposition. So I'm predicting that they lose this weekend on a pick 6One thing is for sure - if Iowa loses to Rutgers this weekend (far from impossible), this thing becomes a true $hlt show, lol.
What if it came down to Minny and Purdue. Would anyone watch that? Just saying
That's honestly not that unrealistic at all, but these are the other results I worry about:
