Big Ten football power rankings: lipstick on a pig edition


During Big Ten football Saturdays like this, how do you spin what happened? How do you put lipstick on these pigs? And even though Northwestern out-gained an AWFUL Western Michigan team by just 126 yards, they’ve still earned the second slot.

I think the Buckeyes aren’t just the best team in the conference, but also the nation. Why because now they have an Aaron Craft to complement a Jared Sullinger.

Last night at the McDonald’s All-American Game Jam Fest, pretty much everyone in the building thought Duke recruit Marshall Plumlee won the dunk competition. An overwhelming majority of the people at the Chicago State Convocation Center thought Plumlee took it, but the prize went to Oklahoma State recruit LeBryan James, who himself was a bit surprised he took home the award.
