Big Ten Poll Watch: Week 7

No. 2 Michigan is going to party like it's 1989.

No. 2 Michigan is going to party like it’s 1989.

The big question for this week’s poll was: “How far will Indiana fall?” We guessed No. 7 or 8. We were wrong.

The secondary question was: “Will Michigan get any of Indiana’s No. 1 votes?” We guessed four. We were wrong. Speaking of Michigan’s No. 1 votes, all three voters who picked the Wolverines also voted Indiana No. 1 last week – which stands to reason.

With that, here’s a look at how the ink-stained wretches voted for Big Ten teams this week:

Michigan (No. 2)

  • Best: No. 1 (Cormac Gordon, Fletcher Mackel, John Feinstein)
  • Worst: No. 6 (C.L. Brown)
  • Most common: No. 2 (49 times)
