This week's focus is on a coach instead of a player, specifically Michigan head coach Brady Hoke.
Hoke took the Michigan job after leading San Diego State to a 9-4 record in 2010. Some Aztec fans thought Hoke was on the verge of building a successful program at SDSU. Instead, he jumped at the chance to coach in Ann Arbor and left disappointed players feeling the post-Christmas blues.
The Big Ten shouldn't have the blues, because they have 10 teams with winning records and Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska and Wisconsin are undefeated. Meanwhile, I slipped to 9-3 for week 3 and am 30-6 overall.
The last weekend before conference play should be a good one as we look at week 4's contests:
- Big Ten College Football Game of the Week (CFGotW)
- Chillers (sometimes called "trap" games)
- Snoozers (games you couldn't get me to watch)
- Big Ten Player to Watch
- Etc. (the rest of the Big Ten games)
