They are already making commemorative cheese wheels if that tells you where all the betting money is going.

Really looking forward to November 18th.

UW is definitely a heavy favorite this year, like Iowa was last year, but I really do think UW is the best team in the West right now.

Best football program? Best academics? Best coeds? Best lakes? Best beer?

I'm not sure Wisconsin is as good as the top 10 love they're getting, but they are the best, most complete team in the West this year.

Program? Wisconsin right now.

Academics? Always a silly question, because it's program dependent.

Coeds? I wouldn't know, I've only been on half the B1G West campuses, and it's not something I've thought about for 15 years.

Lakes? Minnesota.

Beer? Toppling Goliath rules all, so Iowa! But really, it's probably Minnesota.

I want it to be Nebraska, but think that it will be Wisconsin.

All of schools have nice looking ladies. But that would be like looking at my daughter, if I had one. So.. never mind.

Wow. Most people I know love the stuff. They make a lot of beers but that's the picture I could find.

It's not bad. It's overrated. Terribly so.

Their Moon Man is a much better beer. As a whole, I like Potosi's offerings better.

But Minnesota has a greater volume of quality beer.

The last 2 years the winner of the Big Ten west has come down to the winner of the Iowa-Wisc game.  If the results of those games are reversed, the winners of the division are reversed.  I expect both teams to be in the mix.

But the interesting thing is NW has been lingering near first place the last couple years too.  This may be the year for NW to finally break through under RF.

Mike Riley needs to step it up in his 3rd year to another level at Neb or else his coaching seat is going to start get a little warm, but I am not sure Neb has the veterans players he needs to step it up.  It will be up to a new QB and new players to break through if it happens.

PJ Fleck, Lovie Smith, and Jeff Brohm are still building their programs and I do not expect their teams to contend, even though  Minn was a decent team last year.

Coeds wouldn't be the first thing that comes to mind with Sconnie, as they frequently win the title for being the heftiest state.

Nebraska seems to do pretty well in the coed dept as far as I can tell, with a shout out to the Illini.
