Wisconsin was underestimated in every part of the poll. As for the Purdue-Indiana rivalry it has always been the biggest rivalry in the Big Ten. Purdue has just sucked so much the last 3 or 4 years that it hasn't gotten too much attention.

Not even being a UW fan, I still think this poll is a crime. Everyone is exicted about having Sampson in the Big Ten and right they should be but i dont think he will sway the ship in one year. Also to call IU-Purdue the best rivarly is insane, not alotta ppl look forward to that match-up when the schedules come out. The final thing is having the Breslin and Kohl Center three and four is robbery, those are easliy the toughest arenas in the Big Ten

Well, haha you guys would probably do the same thing for the Badgers.


No, I'm realistic. I would've pick Illinois' Assembly Hall for toughest place to play and Oden and Co as the storyline.

Alando Tucker is the obvious pick for POY in unbiased eyes (only player returning from All-BT 1st team), Wisconsin and OSU should be the favorites, and the most entertaining rivalries to watch in the past few years were Illy-MSU and UW-MSU from that list. I don't know if you could argue against those.

The coach one is biased, I'd take Bo, but if I had to pick someone else it'd be a toss-up between Weber and Izzo.

Yeah, I didn't even know that was a rivalry since I'm guessing it's been pretty lopsided since the departure of Glenn Robinson. Indiana fans obviously have conspired on this, why don't they get lives?

It's not like Alando is head and shoulders above everyone. I'd be willing to put a healthy DJ White up against Alando.

Indiana is for hicks. What is with the big sudden obsession with them? They weren't even good last year. They do not have the best coach, player, and arena in the Big 10. No fricking way.

1. Illinois new generation without Brown and Co.
2. Tucker
3. Izzo
4. Assembly Hall(Ill.)
5. Illinois vs. M. State
6. WISCONSIN, ohio state will finish 2nd
A Playoff will be much more fair than the BCS.
No matter what happens, Rodgers GREATER THAN Favre.

Yea by White would acctually have to stay Healthy. Tucker is heads and shoulders better then everyone in the big ten this year(that includes White, and Super-Frosh Greg Oden)

Oden will not live up to the hype in the big ten, he didnt face the quality oppononets night in night out when he was in High School. I think the Big Ten will be a real big wake up call to Mr. Oden

I know D.J. White is an awesome player, but he was hurt for pretty much all of last season. Tucker will be better this year.
