Unlike the Hawks, a few of us did fairly well. KCHawk 25, MTHawk and I went 5-1. Yeah, that one loss was a real stinker... No tie-breaker as all 3 picked you know who to win. So, we deserve that beer... which is an easy drinking tasty Boulevard Pale Ale (KC or MT, pick a beer for this week). And a shout out to Starch for having an inkling that the mighty Bama would fall.
Iowa @ UM. No line yet. Does it matter if DRob plays or not?
NW @ MSU (-6.5). Will it be another thrilling game but on the losing side again for nw?
Ind @ PSU(-19). Will PSU overlook the pesky Hoosiers?
Purdue(-7) @ Ill. Could be worse for Iowa I guess.
OSU @ Wis(-3). A top ten team is an underdog. =)
USC(-4) @ UCLA. This will be a fun shootout.
Bonus- CR Xavier vs Ankeny (should be a good one)
Upset poss.- Ind/PSU; Duke/GT; BC/VT; Minny/Neb; WV/OK; Baylor/KSU; Stan/Ore (-20!!!?); TTech/OKst; Miss/LSU;
btw- Vandy is favored over Tenn ? Auburn, Ark and VT records aren't that much better than Iowa's. Ok, just trying to make light of the situation. Trying...
Goose Island 312 will be the beer of choice for this week. Damn those Hawks! screwing up my undefeated week!
This week I'm going to go with
Michigan (in hopes that me picking Iowa has been their demise the past 4 weeks.)
I like Ankeny in the 4-A ship.
Upset of the week....hmmmm tough call. I'll go with BC over VT.
Iowa - I believe
Upset - TT over the third OSU (Ohio State and Oregon State being the first two)
Iowa @ UM. Iowa, even though common sense says otherwise. 17-14
NW @ MSU (-6.5). NW has to come through in a tough game finally. 42-29
Ind @ PSU(-19). Wisconsin crushed the Indiana will 35-17 PSU
Purdue(-7) @ Ill. Purdue sets up a "Let's go Bowling Showdown with Indiana" 31-9
OSU @ Wis(-3). Wisconsin is getting it together. But tOSU is too good. 24-21
USC(-4) @ UCLA. USC is playing for Bowl seeding. 42-39
Iowa over Michigan is my upset of the week.

Michigan- Maybe I was really born in Missouri instead of Iowa. "Show me"......something- anything- please Hawkeyes!!!!!!!!!
MSU- Has had enough of the same crap we are going through. No contest at home.
PSU- Team is playing for good ol' PSU honor.
Purdue- If they can beat Iowa, they can beat the Illini. Not sure who would win IA/Ill game.
WISC- Here we bowl again!
USC- Who cares, even if it is a good game? I hate the USC band tooting their horns all the time.
MISS over LSU for the upset special of the week.
Iowa (I predicted 6 wins before the season. Iowa needs 2 more to get there)
UM 28 Iowa 3
Ankeny by at least 14 points.
Upset: TTU over Okie State
Ugh, not any picks that I love this week so I guess I'll take Boston College over Virginia Tech.
Sine Missione -- Never be a spectator for unfairness or stupidity, argue for arguments sake; the grave will give plenty of time for silence.
Iowa 24 @ UM 20. The spread is finally up... 16.5!!! Are you going to take that Iowa?
NW 20 @ MSU 24. NW will fall short again.
Ind 24 @ PSU 30. Coach of the year for O'Brien.
Purdue 27 @ Ill. 20. CZook facto still kicking in.
OSU 20 @ Wis 24. Hope I'm wrong here. ...can both teams lose somehow?
USC 41 @ UCLA 38. Warm up game for USC before slaying ND.
Ankeny by 10. Story book ending for that great coach?
Iowa will shock the Hawkeyenation as my upset. Auto upset pick if you picked Iowa. Wis knew it would be more than 8. Ouch.
Michigan 31, Iowa 17....as we go 4-8
MSU 37, NW 27.... the Spartans finish up respectfully
PSU 24, Indiana 10.... things will unravel at PSU next year, not this....
Purdue 31,Illinois 20... the Illini give us hope that they, not us, are the bottom of the B!G barrel.
OSU 31, Wisconsin 27.... close game in Madison, but methinks OSU will run the table.
USC 40, UCLA 21.... sets up ND for big tv day.
Stanford over Oregon...if Bama can lose, so can the Ducks.
