Pretenders to the left of me, Contenders to the right....here I am stuck in the middle with you.
Sorry, I digress...apparently I've been watching too much "Reservoir Dogs" here. (Side Note: Five dollars to the person who can name the band that did the song, without looking it up)
However, that take on the famed song is dead on for this week in the Big Ten as there are some massive "where are we" matchups this weekend.
Of course, it wouldn't be Big Ten play without a trophy on the line, and for the second straight week it is Minnesota playing for one as they take on Michigan for the Little Brown Jug.
It wouldn't be a big weekend in Big Ten country without the return of ESPN's College GameDay and that's exactly what happens this weekend as Ohio State travels to Evanston, Illinois to take on Northwestern.
Needless to say this is the first venture on to the campus of Northwestern for the show, so expect an interesting adventure or two.
Of course, it wouldn't be the start of my weekly picks without reminding you all just how awesome I am at these things (wink, wink).
Last Week: 3-1 (3-1 ATS)
2013 Picks: 40-10 (28-22 ATS)
