The Rivalry, Esq has reached out to the SBNation Big Ten bloggers to create this poll. Its purpose: find a consensus as to the power of the Big Ten teams. We invited each Big Ten blog to participate. We will vote each week. Voters are listed after the jump, as well as some notes about the results. Without further drama, lets tip our caps to expectations...
- Only one voter kept Indiana from sweeping the 11th Place Votes. Purdue was last on that ballot and 8th on another. They were 10th on everyone else's.
- Iowa was the only team aside from OSU/PSU to garner a second place vote. They received 2. They also received the most 3rd Place votes.
- There are some definite groupings: PSU/OSU at the top. Iowa, MSU, Ill as the next group. Northwestern floats by itself, but then MN, MI, and WI are all very close.
Invitations remain extended to the writers of Black Shoe Diaries and the Crimson Quarry to participate.
