"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
not going to happen
So in hopes of being optimistic, my mind constructed a situation where UM could work its way into a five way tie for the Big Ten title. I think it would be the perfect way to end the no championship game era. Your quick cheering guide...
MSU, lose to NW today, lose to Iowa next week. Win rest.
Iowa, lose to Wisconsin today, OSU in a few weeks. Win rest.
Wisconsin, beat Iowa today, lose to UM in November, win rest.
OSU, lose to UM in November, lose rest.
UM, win out.
Let's do this
EDIT: Obviously I meant win rest for OSU.
