Big Ten Bloggers' Fearless 2009 Predictions

+
Lake the Posts compiles the results of the Big Ten Bloggers' annual football prediction balloting. Spartan appearances in the results: 1) MSU over Ohio State is tied for top billing as upset of the year--despite the fact this game will only be occurring in some unknown alternative universe. (The BTB group is still interviewing for the open VP of Quality Control position.) 2) Greg Jones is the pick for breakout player of the year. 3) MSU is picked to finished #4 in the league, behind Penn State, Ohio State, and Iowa. Pete submitted out ballot for us, so he may weigh in a little later with an explanation of how he voted.

A look at Big Ten non-league schedules over time

Adam Rittenberg looks at the way nonconference scheduling has changed in the Big Ten over the last 30 years, following up on a Pat Forde piece on changes in non-conference scheduling across the country. Rittenberg cites MSU as one of four Big Ten teams to maintain a pretty steady degree of difficulty--at least two BCS-conference-level opponents per season (counting Notre Dame). Of course, that all changes this year, with an FCS (Division 1-AA) team and two MAC teams filling the three non-Notre Dame slots. Let's keep in mind that the BCS system make "the regular season count," though. It counts so much that no one's willing to play more than one real game outside of conference play any more.
