Hello! Is it me you're looking for? I can see it in your eyes, I can see it in your smile, you're all I've ever wanted. And my arms are open wide, 'cause you know just what to say, and you know just what to do. And I want to tell you so much, I love you.

• Yes, I picked Ohio State to go to the Rose Bowl. Shoot me.

• Howeva! I picked Michigan to get an at-large BCS bid. How will this play out? Well, if Michigan plays Ohio State twice, and M wins at home then loses in Indy, I suspect this will be the result. Both could finish with 1 or 2 losses.

• Northwestern is for real. (Read that line to yourself again, then read it out loud.)

• Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan State are the wildcards in the conference. I think one could shoot up this list while two stay right where they are. Tough to predict these squads right now. Penn State is irrelevant anyway with the bowl ban.

• Indiana is my little engine that could. I think the bottom 5 teams in the league...Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana and Purdue are all pretty interchangeable in the preseason. I also suspect the Gophers to have another bowl-type season.

Let's be honest though, there's no way the Big Ten gets 9 teams bowl eligible.
