Purdue will be Big 10 champs!

Well, realistically, I don't think so. I think we'll be lucky to finish in the top half of the conference. First game: just 3 days away!

Kiper doesn't impress me either or Lee Corso or Bill Curry. Now Curry is a joke and was the worst coach Alabama has ever had.

MSU has a better shot....this season anyway. They have a good QB and one of the best if not the best WR in the country. The one thing OSU has the MSU doesn't is a weaker schedule. But I still think that OSU can take it.

MSU may be the Cinderella team this season. I really like Jeff Smoker at QB. Their offense should be awesome.

Ok CSC....you are referring to the Smoker to Rodgers connection that MSU has! But I don't think that connection will be enough to get MSU past Ohio State this season.

And on the topic of Lorenzen.....He didn't even win the job at Kentucky last season....Boyd won that as a freshman!....Lorenzen came on as a starter about mid season or so...maybe sooner. Lorenzen is a slinger so to say, who just throws the ball at any given opening no matter how risky the pass may be! Lorenzen has the ability to make plays, but no NFL team is going to take a chance on him, because his style of play would be too costly in the NFL. Now if he could change his style of play....then maybe!

I have two words for you: Brett Favre.

Curry was Kentucky's football coach before he got into broadcasting. He was a good guy, but terrible coach.

Ok, Marc point taken, but Lorenzen didn't even win the job outright until mid season from a freshman!......If a team drafts him, I feel as though they are taking a chance. And if he does get drafted it would not be until after round 4. Most teams would give him a tryout, and he might make a team if everything works out for him.

Joey, he was also just a sophmore and basically a freshmen as he never played much before ... he won the job rather quickly. It wasn't his fault, the UK coaches (new coaching staff then, I might add), couldn't decide, it wasn't his fault or reflective of his talent.

He's not the second coming of Montana, let's be honest, but he has potential. I think he'd impress many, many people. We shall see on Sunday night -- watch on ESPN2 at 6 ET!

He's going to make the offense exciting at Kentucky for sure.

Micigan didnt look bad, and Ohio State and Michigan State should have good season. So we will see.
