Now that the dust has settled, how do we fix the big* ten** conference?
*Conference is not big.
**Conference does not have 10 teams.
NFL is boreball ... See earlier comment about boring offense
>for the record I hate how the SEC plays too, they just have the best players so it holds up against the rest of the ncaa
>big 10 will always be a wannabe SEC
For football? Yes.
For basketball? We're a wannabe ACC, and the SEC is garbage.
For academics/actually being universities? Nobody wants to be the SEC. The bottom universities from any power conference are better than all SEC schools minus Vandy, Florida, and A&M. And the mid-tier schools from any conference are better than all SEC schools except Vandy.
The SEC schools all buy in to the strategy that it's better to be good at one specific thing than okay at everything. So Ole Miss has accounting, Auburn has the vet school, Florida has tax law, etc.
B1G has 2 elite blue bloods (OSU and UM) and 2 superior/perennial contender types (MSU and WISC) the rest are basically trash.
SEC has 1 true blue blood (BAMA) and a couple programs a half tier below (LSU/Auburn/Florida and maybe even Tennessee)
The difference is that programs like Illinois, Penn St, Minny and even Purdue used to be extremely competitive.
Those days are long gone.
>tfw Illinois fan
>tfw not born a century earlier so I could enjoy our dominance as the team everyone feared during the 20's
>tfw our last title is from 40+ years before I was born
>tfw the highlight of being an Illini fan during my life was being B1G co-champions in 2001/getting stomped in the 2002 sugar bowl
>2 superior/perennial contenders (MSU and WISC)
>2 elite blue bloods (OSU and UM)
So you named the 3 teams that won meh bowl games this year against really ND, b/c the other two are horrible, and yet every other team in conference gets BTFO, ok so why aren't all these teams have more wins against there shit competition, btw MSU got BTFO and is on suicide watch after that shitshow of a game they actually aired, good thing everyone was out getting drunk.
>people who hate academics are surprised when they make minimum wage
>just because I put some effort into college I now get paid six figures to shitpost 6 hours a day and answer emails/make calls to clients the other 2 hours a day
realign the divisons so that Ohio state and michigan are split and the power balance is evened out. yearly cross division matchup with osu and mich remains, championship game is just another rematch since that matchup is the only worthwhile game in the entire conference
>only logical way to do this is to put both michigan teams in the west and both indiana teams in the east
>free ride for ohio state to the conference championship every year
>decided to not waste thousands of dollars in college
>go to trade school
>literally have to do nothing until something breaks
>no student debt and I can make six figures once I become a master
college cucks on suicide watch
