Welcome back to The B1G Time, where we look around the Big Ten and give the lowdown on what's goin on with our frienemies around the conference.
Before we get to the team-by-team looks, don't forget yours truly represented this site over at Saturday Edge as we played Q&A with other sites as well. The latest Q&A was on the Most Improved & Most Overrated teams in the conference, my answers both came within the Leaders Division, but you'll have to read it to find out just which team was what.
The biggest story since we last left comes out of Columbus where they have a huge issue at running back after star senior RB Jordan Hall tore a tendon in his foot and is already out for the start of the season, if not more. According to the article Meyer is in a somewhat stage of panic... I thought the Buckeyes dind't replace, just reload? Huh, who knew..
Our annual end of the football season opponents, Penn State, have also been in the headlines once again because of the Jerry Sandusky mess that is only getting worse and could include a cover-up all the way down to Joe Paterno and I emphasize COULD.
This is such a difficult situation because there's two very different ways of looking at this issue, one is the moral side of things - where I think we can all agree Paterno failed the moral obligation to stop kids from being abused. If you have any shred of evidence this is going on you have an obligation to stop it no matter what. Now, sure he met his legal obligation by going to his bosses. So the question is a very personal one - are you looking at this legally or morally and which one matters to you in the end?
