Hawkeyes and the Big Ten Set Adrift by the BCS....
Well it was bound to happen. Once the BCS announced itself on Sunday, the Big Ten disappeared from college football polls, as if by magic. Gone. The mighty conference will be whispered about in future recollections about the glory days of the Big Ten—this year being its swan song according to sports pundits everywhere.
The real tragedy of this past weekend, however, was Zultan’s failure to pick the Iowa Hawkeyes to win their game on Saturday. Who wouldn’t have picked the black birds with their highly suspect record, traveling into East Lansing to do battle with a team which was a preseason top 10 team?
Zultan was a fool not to pick the Hawkeyes to upset the Spartans!
No excuses. The all-seeing seer fell down, disappointed Mom and the Hawkeye Nation. Warning: Zultan will be punished by the football gods going forward.
The Big Z had a perfect pick-10 in his hands and he dropped the pass. The shame is monumental.
Except for the Hawkeye stunner, however, Zultan was once again perfect, missing this one shameful call. Only one person guessed them all right—Kent Christen of Shiloh, Ill., gets the big Zultan congrats this week!
Six of you tied Zultan, but did not go that extra step! Better luck next week.
Since the football deities will surely punish Zultan this week, best to get on board and make your picks now for your chance to win fame and glory by outguessing the Mighty Seer in Week 8.
