    Two different DMR writers today said “all but eliminated” and “unless a nearly impossible set of things happen”.

    Aren’t we eliminated? Wisconsin and Minnesota could in theory end up with 3 conference losses, but, to do so, we’d have to win out and Minnesota would have to lose out.

    Then, in a three way tie, Iowa and Wisconsin both beat Minnesota, so Gophers out, and then Wisconsin over Iowa given head to head win.

    Isn’t this right?

    Wisconsin would have to lose to Purdue and Nebby, beat Minny.
    Minny would have to lose their remaining games and us win out.
    We are in.
    Whisk would have four conference losses, us and Minny three, we would be in because of head to head over Minny.

    The Bengals aren't truly eliminated from the AFC North, either.

    Exactly right. I do not want to watch Iowa get their pants pulled down by Ohio State with the whole country watching.

    Only team with a real chance is Wisconsin and we need Iowa to win next week.
    In either event one of us MUST beat Minnn, the thought of the Goofs going undefeated in the Big 10 is truly a horrifying.

    Even Wisconsin fans telling us from experience it's not worth it to face Ohio State, and that they'd rather Minnesota be the unfortunate Guinea pig in December......;)

    So, by this Minny wins the West if they win in Kinnick?

    That sounds fun.....:(

    Exactly, whoever the West rep is; they are going to get demolished by O$U.

    Let’s get real. Nobody from the Big 10 West has a chance
