Big Tentacles: Running quarterbacks, weird science, Ricky Stanzi's hair, and more

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big 10 and the teams it not-so-secretly covets.)  
 


 The Big Ten's new crop of running quarterbacks. They're faster than a speeding bullett. But can they leap tall cans of Barbasol? (Off Tackle Empire)

Perd-use your delusion. With tough conference games between Ohio State-Wisconsin, Iowa-Michigan, and Michigan State-Illinois. Purdue could wind up as the top team in the Big Ten if the Boilermakers get past Minnesota. (Hammer and Rails)

Stat of the day. Wisconsin is 25-for-28 in it's most recent night games. Meanwhile, Ohio State is 16-10 in the past ten years. (Madison.com, Bucky's 5th Quarter)

It's official. Michigan will face Alabama to start 2012 facing each other at Cowboys Stadium. (ESPN)

"Scientifically" trying to show Michigan will beat Iowa. Sadly, the based on the severely flawed logic of "heads I win, tails you lose." (iSportsweb)

Project Runway, Big Ten edition. Part I.  Nike wanted Penn State to try out some of those Pro Combat uniforms. No dice. (pennlive.com, Dr. Saturday )

Project Runway, Big Ten edition. Part Deux. An in depth look at Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel's v-neck sweater vest. (Dr. Saturday)

Does Iowa's Ricky Stanzi need a haircut? One blogger gives ten things America's Quarterback could do with his hair. Don't expect Stanzi to try most of them. (Top 10 Big Ten)
