Power Poll, Post Week 9 Pulp Fiction Edition

Pulp_fiction_medium

Let's be honest. Two of the easiest columns to write (and get feedback from your readers) are 1) the power rankings column and 2) the pop culture comparison column. Much like that magical day when somebody got their peanut butter on my chocolate (or did I get my chocolate in her peanut butter?), it was predestined that one day these two great columns would be brought together...

Pulp Fiction was a movie that when it first came out, it had to grow on me a bit.  The first time I saw it, it seemed disjointed and kind of screwed up, but after I deployed to Bosnia, I ended up watching it a couple dozen times, and it's one of my favorite movies of all time.

Kind of like the B1G.  It seems disjointed and kind of a mess, and some things seem out of order, but by the end, it will all come together and everyone will understand.

1.  Nebraska, 125 Points (4 First place votes)--Marsellus Wallace

Marsellus_wallace_medium

The top dog character that wandered in to the wrong place at the wrong time, got anally raped, but in the end (end, anally raped, seewhatididthere?) got a handle on the situation and went medieval on some people.

2.  Penn State, 122 Points (6)--Vincent Vega

Vincent_vega_medium

A guy that was the steady conscience of the movie, yet was still a ruthless hit man when needed.  He died in a bathroom, though.

3.  Ohio State, 103 Points (1)--Jules Winfield

Jules_winnfield_medium

A bad man that became philosophical and went the straight and narrow, but will always have a wallet with his true identity on it.

4. MSU, 100 Points--Mia Wallace

Mia_wallace_medium

A pretty good dancer that got in over her head with some pure stuff we'll just call 'success'.  When she got a 'whiff' of it, she went comatose and ended up needing an adrenaline shot to the heart to stay alive.

5.  Wisconsin, 90 Points--Butch Coolidge

Butch_medium

The card said to go back for the watch, which ended up working out.  But if they lose again their Indianapolis privileges will probably be revoked.

6.  Michigan, 87 Points--Winston Wolf

Winston_wolf_medium

Mr. Wolf makes the impossible possible, like taking a bad defensive unit and making them good, for example.  But let's not go clucking each others chicks just yet, though.

7.  Illinois, 61 Points--Zed

Zed_medium

Zed thought he was a bad man, until he was killed by the real bad men.  Zed's dead, baby.  Zed's dead.

8.  Iowa, 50 Points--Captain Koons

Capt_koons_medium

Had a bronze pig watch stuck up his ass for two years now, and that feeling is also the facial expression that Kirk Ferentz has on his face.  All the time.

9.  Purdue, 46 Points--Jimmy Dimmick

Jimmy_medium

Faced with a possible Bonnie Situation at the end of the year if they don't win more.

10.  Northwestern, 40 Points--Brett

Brett_medium

Poor Brett.  Tried to play with the big boys but died eating a Big Kahuna burger.  Which is a tasty burger, I might add.

11.  Minnesota, 23 Points--Ringo

Ringo_medium

Small time thief who had one big score before he was stopped by the real players in the movie.  Surprisingly, they let him live.

12.  Indiana, 11 Points--Marvin

Marvin_medium

Marvin got shot in the face.
