Big Ten football is a cluster*&^).
Simple as that.
Ohio State was the league’s lone legitimate playoff contender. They have paused activities this week. Michigan, the team Ohio State has to have play if they want to get enough games to get in? Yeah, they paused activities too. Could Harbaugh save his job by sticking it to Ohio State and refuse to play? A lackluster stint in the Blue and Maize would become legendary for all of the wrong reasons.
Minnesota has shut down after 40 positive test in 10 days.
Northwestern will likely clinch a West title with the Minnesota cancellation this weekend. Indiana, who could win the East if Ohio State does not play enough games, lost their star quarterback for the year. Wisconsin has still only played three games.
Michigan, Penn State and Nebraska have a combined four wins with 13 losses.
I mean, Illinois fans were still holding out hope six weeks into a conference season.
This is the kind of carnage typically reserved to the Wisconsin linemen keg parties or a Bills tailgate. Someone just go out behind the wood shed and plant this league year under the red fern where it belongs.
