I like Berger at Wisconsin. His carries will be up this year. Where they will be short is in the depth behind Berger. I am sure someone will step into the role, but going into the season, there isn’t the known commodity that will be the back up and take the carries.I see improvement from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Illinois. Iowa should hold steady and be around the 8-9 win mark. Start 2-0 and 10 wins would be the floor.
NW will take a step back. Someone else pointed it out but they have down years before their surprise seasons.
The loser of the Illinois/Purdue game Sept 25 with finish the division in last.
Nebraska is on the verge of being good. The season hinges on Adrian Martinez’ health, IMO.
I’m not on the Wisconsin hype train. They will be better than last year but they aren’t unbeatable by anyone in the division. They don’t have that stud RB that beats teams on his own.
