It’s almost that time of year: where I switch from Big Ten football power rankings to Big Ten basketball power rankings. Because in a a week or so, the hoops rankings will be a lot more fun to do than gridiron. Also, I’m an Illinois alum, did my MBA at Michigan State. So I’m Big Ten through and through; and of course, those two schools are a weeeeee bit better at college basketball than college football.
So it may be time to say goodbye to the Big Ten football power rankings really soon. There just isn’t enough room in my life to do both at the same time.

Carlos Hyde had a huge game at Northwestern last night- three touchdowns and over 160 yards. On a night when Ohio State really needed Carlos Hyde. Jordan Hall did not dress and has a knee issue that they need to take care of according to Urban Meyer. So Hyde was MVP for the Buckeyes.
