Bad Day for the Big Ten

It was not a good day yesterday for Big Ten football, as all three of the top-ten ranked teams lost: #4 Ohio State lost to #2 Texas in a squeaker, #8 Iowa took a shellacking from unranked Iowa State, and my own beloved #3 Michigan Wolverines looked inept against the hated #20 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

I always wonder why the AP ranks Michgan so high in the preseason year after year, when it usually means the kiss of death for the team, especially is they have to play a lwoer-ranked Notre Dame. Their lowest preseason ranking of recent years was in 1997, when they were ranked #14--and that was the year they went on to win the National Championship.
