16 team B1G prediction sure is bold
They are already mentioning how big that game at Michigan will be. If it isn't a night game on national tv I'll feel better about it
1. Nebraska plays Ohio State for the Big Ten title: The game we should have gotten for the Big Ten championship in 2012 -- the Huskers versus the Buckeyes -- becomes a reality a year later. Nebraska uses an advantageous schedule and its experienced offense to begin the season 8-0. The first loss comes in the Big House on Nov. 9, but Michigan loses at Michigan State and in its finale to Ohio State to give the Cornhuskers the Legends crown. Senior quarterback Taylor Martinez edges out Braxton Miller and Devin Gardner for Big Ten offensive player of the year honors.
Wow and we thought last year was stressful. If we lose @ michgan, this board will need a defibrillator.

Road wins are tough to come by.
I don't know about he timing, but there have been stories out there that Delaney intends to take the league to at least 18. I don't think 14 even makes sense for football and I hate what this is doing to traditional rivalries, etc.
I wouldn't be surprised if they went to 20. Four pods of five teams with a nine game schedule. Rotating pods allows you to play everyone more often than 14 teams/2 divisions. Also, more control/influence with that amount. Yes, the old rivalries are dying, but the big boys can consolidate and break from NCAA.
Martinez beating out Braxton Miller for B1G Offensive POY is a pipe dream, sorry.
Who besides Nebraska has 2 1,000 yard rushers and a 1,000 yard receiver?
Martinez was All B1G QB last season. Could happen again. POY would be a reasonable possibility and not a pipe dream at all.
In fact, Miller has shown a propensity for injury and maybe is somewhat fragile. We'll see.
Sorry my wording was so strong, I just genuinely believe it's a stretch.
I am of the belief Martinez is approaching, if not at, his ceiling as a QB while Braxton is coming up under a very QB-oriented coach.
I'm sure there are some but one doesn't readily come to mind. A&M might have accomplished this. I'd have to look it up. I doubt Oregon had a 2nd rusher. It's a good stat for us to sell to recruits, and they probably are!
No worries. In a sense, a kinda agree with you about 'pipe dreams'. To me, it's a pipe dream to think any one person will be POY from this far out. This time last year, wasn't Barkley supposed to be the next Heisman winner? But that's what bold predictions are all about.
Also, Miller really does seem to be strangely injury prone. Absent injuries, he does have a lot of talent. We'll see.
As to Martinez, if he repeats his off season training, more improvement is certainly possible. Especially in accuracy. Wouldn't that be nice?
its improving his progressions more so than his accuracy that is going to take this offense to the next level
