B1G Survivor 2021 Week 5

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports

What a shitshow! It takes a very special type of team and a special type of quarterback to have a 4th quarter lead, the opposing team on their 3rd string Freshman QB, and still manage to lose by 28. Not sure if Wisconsin fans are still welcome around these parts, but I suppose I should keep this little game going.

B1G Survivor had a pretty good distribution of picks in Week 4. We saw seven different teams get selected. Some of you cruised to easy wins (Nw, Mary, PSU), some of you had various degrees of sweating it out (Ind, Mich, Pur), and seven of you saw your season end via BGSU-Minnesota. Also, two of our esteemed writers selected teams that they had previously selected in Week 2 (beezer-Northwestern, and HWAHSQB-Maryland, respectlvely). Something-something-not-reading-the-fanpost-something. We also had one no-show, which whittles the field from 71 down to these 61:
