    I'm all done bitching about Ludwig and this team. It's laid out for them to take the B1G west along with 3 of the other teams they have to play. I'm not saying Purdue will be a gimme, nor are Illinois, Northwestern or Purdue out of the race completely. However, the last 4 weeks are going to decide which team currently with 1 loss in the B1G, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska or Wisconsin gets to play for belt.

    Taking a look at each teams schedule from here on out:

    Iowa
    11/8 @ Minnesota, 11/15 @ Illinois, 11/22 Wisconsin and 11/29 Nebraska. On the surface they get both Nebraska and Wisconsin at home and play at Minnesota. They took it to Northwestern today, at team that often gives them trouble, but getting 2 of the 3 1loss teams at home helps.

    Minnesota
    11/8 Iowa, 11/15 OSU, 11/22 @ Nebraska and 11/29 @ Wisconsin. It appears that they have the most difficult road to the title, they get OSU at home and still get the pleasure of playing the 2 of the 3 1 loss teams on the road.

    Nebraska
    11/15 @ Wisconsin, 11/22 Minnesota and 11/29 @ Iowa. They get a much needed week off with Abdullah having left today's game early with an injury. 2 of the 3 are on the road and all 3 are against the other contenders for the west title.

    Wisconsin
    11/8 @ Purdue, 11/15 Nebraska, 11/22 @ Iowa and 11/29 Minnesota. Like Iowa they get 2 of the other 3 west contenders at home after going to Purdue next week.

    It worked out pretty well for the 4 teams at the top, they all get to play each other and which team takes care of it's business on a weekly basis will get a trip to the B1GCC. Good luck to all 4 teams and may the best team win.

    I won't make any predictions right now, will just enjoy the chaos.

    Minnesota took Iowa down today to stay in the hunt. Iowa still has a good opportunity at this, they get both UW and Nebraska at home. Next Saturday will be Nebraska at UW, and OSU vs Minnesota, so we could see some more clarity once those 2 games are over.

    Who will sit in the driver's seat after next week? We shall see who handles their business....

    Bottom line is if Stave can throw the ball like he did Saturday against Purdue this team can win the division.

    Andersen also has to limit his poor coaching decisions. I said it as the offense lined up for the play, and will continue to say it now. I'm glad he has confidence in MG3 and the offensive line, but for the love of all things good and sacred, take the damn points on the road.

    It appears that Bucky took control, for now. If they want to keep control of the west, they need to beat Iowa at Iowa and Minnesota at home. So it's all laid out, win out and there is no tie break or other nonsense.

    Just handle your business boys and you'll be heading the the B1G championship game.

    It appears that Minnesota and UW stepped up to the plate, took their swings and now get to play for the B1G west title.

    This is going to be a slobber knocker of a game...least mistakes wins

    It appears that the Badgers decided they wanted to take this thing...and that they did...they did a very nice job of hanging in there every game, fighting back and taking the fight back to their opponents..

    Nice job by these kids...they earned their shot at the title..so up next is OSU
