    As usual the battle for the Big Ten crown went down to the final weekend of the season with Michigan splitting the league title with Iowa.

And none were much better than the Rivals.com Big Ten Player of the Year, Michigan wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

    The 6-3, 208-pounder is the Big Ten’s offensive player of the year and a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the nation’s top receiver. He caught 87 passes for 1,221 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, leading Michigan to a 9-2 record, a share of the Big Ten title and a berth in the Rose Bowl.

    His 242 career catches, 3,432 career yards and 16 100-yard games are all school records, and his 36 career touchdown receptions are just one shy of Anthony Carter’s school mark. Additionally, Edwards’ reception and yardage figures this season broke Marquise Walker’s season records.

    Edwards was one of five Wolverines to make the Rivals.com All-Big Ten team. Wisconsin checks in with five players as well, while Ohio State, Iowa, and Michigan State all have three players named. Purdue, Northwestern and Minnesota each have two players named, and Indiana and Illinois each have one.

    Did I miss something? What is wrong with these picks? Is it the focus on Edwards?

    In all fairness to this publication, I believe that Edwards probably was the best player in the Big Ten offensively this season.

    Nothing wrong with what they are saying except they should change the caption under the photo to ".....nearly uncoverable this season, except when Ashton Youboty lines up across from him."

    As usual Michigan split with Iowa???? (Yeah, I know, it's saying as usual it went down to the final weekend, and happened to be Michigan and Iowa splitting)

    Marlin Jackson and Ernest Shazor.. Bah.

    I think they meant that the "usual" was "the battle for the Big Ten crown went down to the final weekend of the season", rather than it being between Iowa and Michigan.
