It was suggested yesterday that I simply pick names from a hat to determine the bowl projections. I seriously considered it. Then I realized that wouldn’t do too much for my already awesome street credibility. I told myself to never, ever, project Oklahoma playing in a national title game. I told myself this because I knew they’d lose an inexplicable game here or there and shoot themselves in the foot. Yet, when USC lost, they were the sane choice. I’m making sane choices in an insane college football season.
Then there’s the Big Ten. Yesterday the following things happened:
- Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State all looked awful but still managed to win their football games.
- Iowa lost to a middling MAC team.
- Denard Robinson threw four, yes, four interceptions in Michigan’s loss to Notre Dame.
- Illinois got housed by Louisiana Tech.
Aside from that it was just a normal Saturday. I’d go into how this week affected the bowl projections but that wouldn’t be any fun would it? Hit the jump.
