Upon further review, Big Ten media picks Michigan State to win conference

Prior to Braxton Miller’s injury, Cleveland.com’s poll of Big Ten writers pegged Ohio State to win the conference. But with Miller out, a re-vote was conducted…and Michigan State is now the overwhelming favorite to win the Big Ten.

Initially, 19 of 30 voters picked Ohio State to win the Big Ten Championship. Of the 25 participants in the re-vote, 22 picked Michigan State. Ohio State earned one vote in the second poll, as did Wisconsin and Nebraska.

We’ll let Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman take it from here, via the Chicago Tribune (and before Miller’s injury):

“How important is it for Cleveland to keep LeBron healthy? It’s probably the same answer,” Heuerman said of Miller, who missed two games last season and had shoulder surgery in February. “Braxton, we all revolve around him, and to keep him healthy is huge. There’s nothing else really to say. We have to keep him healthy.”

For what it’s worth, the Associated Press’ Ralph Russo still is picking Ohio State to win the Big Ten and make the College Football Playoff.
