Pucker up. That’s where we stand after one week of our head-to-head pick.
Yours truly and Gary were correcting in picking Ohio State and Illinois to win last week. I correctly picked Iowa winning at Minnesota but was disappointed in the effort of Purdue as Gary was right in picking Northern Illinois.
“They are just horrible in every freaking category,” he said in justifying his pick.
This week we have a full slate of Big 10/11/12 games.
Let’s get the obligatory picks out of the way: We both are picking Ohio State and TTUN.
But that’s where it stops.
Gary likes Michigan State. I like Iowa.
I kind of root for Michigan State because Mark Dantonio is from Zanesville,” Gary said.
Yeah. There’s a reason to pick a team.
I’m jumping on the Iowa bandwagon because my neighbor likes them. So there.
Even though Bo Pelini’s team can’t play defense, I’ll take Nebraska over Illinois. Gary likes the Illini for no apparent reason.
“There’s something about them,” he said. “I don’t know.”
Finally, I will take State Penn, uh, Penn State over Indiana.
Indiana is bad, bad, bad.
“I’m just kind of picking against you on that one,” Gary quipped in taking Indiana.
Fair enough. So to recap:
Scott’s picks: Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, OSU, PSU.
Gary’s picks: Michigan State, Michigan, Illinois, OSU, Indiana.
