    Loving it...If Michigan can pull that off with the Schedule they have this year it will be very impressive.

    May want to think that Leaders division after the PSU news this morning.

    Michigan's front 7 on defense is the key for them. A lot of inexperience there and some guys who have not quite lived up to hype yet (like Will Campbell). They have a relatively tough schedule and I would be surprised but not shocked if they made it to the B1G championship game.

    Have to agree with the list. But I feel like Penn St. may not win a game. I put up a prediction thread a while back and had Michigan and Wisconsin as my top two, glad the talking heads agree.

    If Wisconsin doesnt make the title game it will be pretty sad. All they have to worry about are Purdue and Illinois

    I'm disappointed to not see Buchanan or Brown get a mention, but that isn't a big deal. If I had to choose I'd go Michigan St over Wisconsin.
