B1G Bowl Outlook Open Thread

B1G Bowl Outlook Open Thread

I figure that since the Big 10 has four concurrent games this afternoon, as well as the Rose Bowl tonight, we could use a thread to reflect on the Big 10's bowl fortunes this year.  In an anti-homer move, I have all the Big 10 teams losing today in my confidence pool.  I have the B1G going 2-8 total, with Michigan and Purdue the only wins.  Illinois already improved on that, but I wouldn't be surprised now to see anywhere from 3-7 to 5-5 for the Big 10 this season.  Anything outside of that will be pretty shocking, I think.

I think our best shot for a win today is probably the Gator Bowl, as it appears that PSU has fallen apart since JoPa's firing.  Does anyone know if McGloin will be able to play? 

 

EDIT: We have a total of five games today, guess I lost track.  It sucks that nearly half our conference bowl games are on at once...
