Around the Big Ten-Week 1

We’re starting something new here this week at Onward State. Every Monday (yes, we’re kind of late this week), we’ll tell you what else happened around the Big Ten over the weekend. And don’t worry, unlike Michigan quarterback Tate Forcier, we’ll be here to stay.

Indiana, Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin all beat up on much lesser competition
Links would not even be worth your time.

Minnesota doesn’t beat up on their lesser competition, Tim Brewster’s seat gets hotter
It was nice to see fullback Jon Hoese score 3 TD’s though as his father just had a stroke days before.

Ohio State beats up on lowly Marshall and Terrelle Pryor is basically handed the Heisman
This isn’t Bryon Leftwich, Chad Pennington or Randy Moss’s Marshall, people. Even QB14 could’ve put up decent numbers against this Thundering Herd team.

Northwestern beat Vanderbilt, 23-21, in the GPA Bowl
Take that, SEC!! Let’s hope for similar results this coming Saturday in Tuscaloosa.

Illinois and Purdue lose to previously suspected Big Ten additions Missouri and Notre Dame
Maybe a switch is in order?

Rich Rod’s plan finally sees some light in a record-breaking Big House, Michigan clobbers UConn
Denard Robinson showed glimpses of Pat White on Saturday causing Rodriguez to breathe a sigh of relief. The Wolverine-Fighting Irish will be one to watch this weekend.
