Big Ten Bloggers Fearless Predictions

As promised, my (week late) installment of the Big Ten Bloggers Fearless Predictions.

Coach of the Year
I have to go with my gut on this one, I will say Penn State's own Joe Paterno. Folks may shutter at the idea that the old coot has one great season left in him, but this blogger feels that not only will it be a good year, but maybe one of his best ever...and maybe even his last.

Most Likely To Strike Heisman Pose
I hate the Heisman. I don't like what it means and I despise what it stands for. College football is a great sport. What makes it so great is the idea of the team (the team, the team, the team). I don't like to get into the habit of proclaiming individual greatness before I've witnessed it. Based on last season, I see no Heisman front-runners in the Big Ten.

Last Year's Illini Will Be This Year's....?
Michigan State.

Upset Game of The Year
Michigan State over Ohio State.

Name You'll Know In December That No One Knows In June
Justin Feagin

Most Likely to John McLaren (lose it in postgame rant, NOT lose his job)
As much as I would like to see Tressell unbutton his top button, he'll never let his stonewall defenses down for the media. I'll say Mark Dantonio. He's too new to lose his job, but he's just crazy enough to go ballistic after his 2nd loss to Big Brother.

Highest Draft Pick In 2009
Beanie Wells, but he won't go top 5.

Must See Game of The Year That Is Not Michigan-Ohio State
Ohio State v. Penn State. And for the non-conf, this year's "Game of the Millennium" Ohio State v USC.
