The Most Underrated Thing Was …

The rest of the Big Ten East all of a sudden looks fun.

One more thing about the Ohio State loss to Oregon. Illinois is the only other Big Ten team so far to lose a game out of conference.

There haven’t been a slew of killers on the slate, but Michigan beating Washington was nice. For all the screaming and yelling about Jim Harbaugh, he’s 2-0 with a team that’s looking sharp.

Maryland got by West Virginia to start the season and now it’s 2-0. Rutgers is 2-0 after beating Syracuse, Michigan State has yet to lose, and Penn State beat Wisconsin from the West.

No one’s thinking anyone but Ohio State will take the East, but at least the division seems more interesting. Even if the Buckeyes rip through it on the way to another Big Ten title, it’s going to be a tougher fight.

Remember, last year Penn State had its worst start in school history, Michigan was a wreck, and Maryland and Michigan State quickly melted down.

Let’s be honest here – Indiana doesn’t have the season it does in 2020 unless the rest of the East was a mess.

In the other division, Purdue got a win over Oregon State and it’s 2-0 before getting Notre Dame. Nebraska bounced back from an early loss to be 2-1, Wisconsin dominated Eastern Michigan, and other than Illinois getting rocked by Virginia, the West went 6-1 highlighted by Iowa picking off Iowa State.

The Big Ten went 12-2 last weekend, and its star program lost a game and looks a tad vulnerable.

This isn’t going to be a boring conference race.
