further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Fitzgerald Toussaint sentenced to 10 months probation for his July arrest for an OWI
According to Chris Balas (citing EdgyTim.com, the Rival's Illinois prep site):
As you all likely know, he was supposed to be at the game this weekend, but could not make it for unstated reasons. This is definitely a good sign though (in my opinion) for us because
1. He's not visiting anywhere else for a while so our cancellation is not unique.
2. He's makin his trip an official visit (it was supposed to be an unofficial visit before), which likely removes one competitor for his services and shows that despite Ann Arbor's geographic convenience, it's worth using one of his officials to go to Michigan (for about the 200th time).

Week nine lines and over/unders are up and that means MGoBlog's 238947324th best weekly post is back.
Recap (game, who covered, by how much, over/under, by how much):
Minnesota @ Wisconsin: Wisconsin (7.5), over (+6)
Purdue @ Ohio: Purdue (7.5), under (-9)
Michigan State @ Michigan: MSU (8.5), under (-23)
Nebraska @ Northwestern: Northwestern (6), under (-5)
Indiana @ Navy: Indiana (1.5), over (+5.5)
Penn State @ Iowa: Penn State (27), over (+11)
If you picked last week, see how you did here.
Week Nine (line listed is for the home team):
Michigan State @ Wisconsin (-6.5, +/- 41.5)
Iowa @ Northwestern (-6, +/- 49.5)
Purdue @ Minnesota (+3.5, +/- 51)
Michigan @ Nebraska (-2.5, +/- 57.5)
Indiana @ Illinois (-1, +/- 58.5)
Ohio @ Penn State (PK, +/- 50)
What do your picks look like this week? I think Penn State ends OSU's winning streak, they seem due for a loss and PSU seems to match up pretty well. I think Minnesota will cover against Purdue, I think Michigan covers against Nebraska, and I can't help but think the over/under is too high for Iowa/Northwestern.
Title says it all.

I don't watch enough games outside the B1G to comment on those non-B1G players, and I'm completely ok with Manti, Bullough (I know), and Mauti on here, but I feel our boy JR has had as much of an impact at LB as anyone in the B1G this year.
