Last week, we brought you the predicted order of finish in the Leaders Division for 2012. No surprises in the predicted order of finish there, but Wisconsin did come out undefeated in that initial projection. At the very least, the Badgers should be favored in every game they play, though college football usually finds a way to introduce disaster to everybody's season.
The real logjam in the Big Ten will be coming from the Legends Division, however. Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska are all serious division title contenders this year, and Iowa is capable of throwing a wrench into those plans. Meanwhile, Northwestern is a beast in November and Minnesota's on its way up in terms of overall quality.
In other words, easy wins will be in short supply in the Legends Division this fall.
That all said, let's take a look at how everything should shake out in a land of no surprises. That's college football, right? Entirely predictable? Right?
