CornNation 2015 Big Ten Power Poll: Week Four

Sometimes we get a little slow, but now that we've reached the end of the nonconference part of the schedule and begin conference play, it's time to for the CN team to lay down where we think the conference lays.

Some thoughts from the team:

Ranchbabe - Every team in this conference seems to be seriously flawed. Some more than others. I tried to figure out whose flaws might be more fixable than others and then I just gave up and let the cat walk across the keyboard. I really think that the teams I put from 3 to 9 could be rearranged at will. If I were to fill this out in another 10 minutes, I probably would do it completely differently.


Greg - I have a problem with Northwestern being where they are...because it's Northwestern, goshdarnit. With B1G play starting in earnest this weekend, I'm looking forward to see who rises and who falls. But this conference, as good as it can be, is too inconsistent to make any real waves in the post-season, unfortunately.

Husker Mike - Yeesh. There are some rather divergent opinions on Indiana here. But let's hope that Nebraska turns it around, because I don't like seeing Nebraska hanging around Minnesota and Indiana on this list.

How would you rank the Big Ten?
