ESPN: These Big 10 Teams Are Trending Downward

Here are the Big Ten teams not to buy stock in, according to ESPN.

ESPN's Big Ten writers have named multiple teams in the conference that are falling heading into the 2017 season.

These are Big Ten teams that, for whatever reason, will not be as good as people expect them to be this fall.

The teams:

  • Iowa
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Michigan State
  • Rutgers

Here's what ESPN has to say about the Spartans:

There has been a steady stream of bad news coming from East Lansing this offseason. Legal issues have put football in the back seat from an outside perspective. The team still is working to repair locker room rifts that contributed to last season’s 3-9 record. On top of that, the loss or suspension of a few potential starters on both the offensive and defensive lines will further weaken groups that were a staple of the Spartans’ success in happier days.
