Inside Look: After throwing Oregon around the field Ohio State and Terrelle Pryor are ready for big years. The defense is loaded with Cameron Heyward and Ross Homan. With a great offense and defense Iowa will be tough to beat. If Ricky Stanzi cuts down on his mistakes the Hawkeyes will challenge the Buckeyes. With bruiser John Clay Wisconsin is looking like the team a few years ago. Quarterback Scott Tolzien is one of the most underrated players in the Big 10. Penn State said good bye to Daryll Clark and Sean Lee but running back Evan Royster returns along with center Stefen Wisiniewski. Rich Rodriguez and Michigan still has to decide whether to start Tate Forcier or speedy Denard Robinson. The defense lost end Brandon Graham but it should be fine. With a strong defense Michigan State is a contender again in the Big 10. Greg Jones can make plays up and down and true freshman William Gholston could make plays. Purdue is my dark horse pick in the Big 10. Robert Mavre, who tranferred from Miami will start at QB passing to guys like Keith Smith and the defense has end Ryan Kerrigan. Pat Fitzgerald's Northwestern squad lost Mike Kafka but can contend if the defense holds up. Indiana has had years of losing and will have a tough time changing that this season. Tandon Doss, a skilled wideout, can also be a star in special teams returning punts and kicks. MinnesotaIllionis struggled last eyar because of the problems quarterback Isiah 'Juice' Williams. Luckily the Illini have Mikel LeShoure, who had a big game in last season's final game against Fresno State.
