Big Ten Power Poll - Post Week 10


Well, so much for the unanimity.  The losses by our consensus top two teams from last week put everything into a complete disarray in the Top 4.  Behind that, it's even more of a mess.  The Big Ten isn't helped by the fact that every team outside of the Top 4 has been shown to be mediocre at best.  It's led to some ugly football.  That's led to me finding these ugly pieces of merchandise.

1. Ff_358794_s_medium 108 (8) You have to trust me on this: after the second martini, seeing Brutus stare at you will be downright creepy.
2. Ff_329327_s_medium 97 (2) Most of the Hawkeyes will be hanging their walking cast boot in place of stockings this year.
3. Ff_343028_s_medium 88 There is a Joe Paterno/graden gnome joke in there somewhere, but I don't think that the gnome is quite that old yet.
4. Ff_309160_s_medium 87 Yes, I want to make it look like a giant rodent is invading my house by punching through a wall.


63 Foam rubber hats are dumb anyway, but what the hell is that?
6. Ff_104001_s_medium 57 MSU sweater for your punting-sized dog?  That screams "tough guy."
7. Ff_292573_s_medium 49 Hey!  Don't put your drink on the table.  That's what the coaster with the buck-toothed rodent is for!
8. Ff_127858_s_medium 43 I've got a fever and the only cure is a prescription gold ball with a Purdue train logo.  Dear God, who comes up with these things?
9. Ff_155867_s_medium 29 You'll see that the temperature has gone down on Ron Zook's seat.
10. Ff_166655_s_medium 23 You'll notice that the plate is disposable.  Just like the Indiana football season.
11. Ff_257002_s_medium 16 Instead of a dumb comment about the Michigan travel pillow, I want to stop and acknowledge what has happened here.  The voters, well-informed Big Ten football fans, have come to the conclusion that Michigan (MICHIGAN!) is the worst team in the Big Ten.  How would you like to travel back through time to 1984 and tell Bo Schembechler and Bobby Knight that in twenty-five years, their schools' respective football and basketball programs would be judged to be the worst teams in the Big Ten?  What is going on in this world?
