Michigan dropped like a hot rock this week as might be expected, from alone in fourth with a 62.5 rating, to its present seventh place tie and a 44.3. A few comments on from the pollsters:

Gilliam the Badger: “It looks like last year all over again. MSU can’t get out of their own way, UM stumbles in a disappointing opener, OSU, PSU crush inferior opponents. Most positive moves of the week? Minnesota managed to win a game, and Indiana is spending $40 million to finish their stadium. When does basketball start?”

Biggie Munn the Spartan, when asked who impressed this week. “Northwestern…nice win vs. Syracuse. Their offense looked very explosive.”

Schlimmy the Buckeye agreed with Biggie, “Northwestern- they were the only Big Ten team to beat a team from a BCS conference- so by default I give them the nod this week. Big Ten is off to a slow start as they go 0-3 in their “showcase games” for the week, Illinois is dropping quickly in my eyes as giving up 50+ point is simply unacceptable.”
