Last season's Big Ten schedule was essentially a wash unless you were an Ohio State, Indiana, or Northwestern fan but thankfully the conference will be back to normal for this season. 

Still, that doesn't make betting win totals any easier, as the limited number of games and practices, the stringent COVID-19 policies and the lack of week-to-week continuity make picking totals a lot more of a projection-based task than it has been in the past.

There is an argument that Ohio State is now better off with Ryan Day — 23-2 in his tenure so far — than it was with Meyer. Day's work in the recruiting department has been nothing short of incredible, with seven five-star recruits incoming. Quinn Ewers, the No. 1 prospect in the 2022 recruiting class, reclassified to join the Buckeyes this fall, and it just seems as though the road to the Big Ten championship runs through Columbus, Ohio.
