Some of the Big Ten's best athletic departments don't get the recognition they deserve if they don't happen to be good at football or basketball in a given year, and some of our worst athletic departments give off the impression of success with nothing but football and basketball victories.
The Big Ten All-Sport Standing Cup (B1GASS Cup) is awarded to the best overall athletic department for the prior academic year.
Tier 4: The Untouchable (#14)
Tier 3: Really Not Good (#10-13)
13. Michigan State
Tier 2: The Solid Middle (#4-9)
4. Penn State
Tier 1: The B1G Boys (#1-3)
2. Ohio State
The Little 4
Implicit in the name "Big Ten" for a fourteen-team conference is that four of us aren't quite so big. There's a few new faces in the Little 4 this year, as Indiana and Purdue have claimed a spot at the Adults' Table, thereby relegating Maryland and Michigan State down to the bottom of the group along with Iowa and Rutgers, who decided they were quite comfortable staying at the kids table for another year eating hot dogs and juiceboxes instead of steak and beer. Congratulations to the Terrapins, Hawkeyes, Spartans and Knights, you're this year's worst athletic programs in the B1G!
Team Hypercool, mostly made up of Michigan commits and targets, got eliminated at The Opening
Big win today for Andy! I think it was a somewhat loaded field for a 70.3. 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, then a 13.1 mile run.
Edit 1 - Splits are up, 24:30 on the swim, 2:08:33 on the bike, and 1:12:13 on the run.
Edit 2 - WD, make sure this gets in your Super Guide.
Have you ever been fitted for Golf Clubs?
If so , how much has it improved your game?
I've been playing with a $200 Starter
Set for about 5 years now and am ready
Hopefully I can make time this week and
get it done at Miles of Golf. I was wondering what
to expect other than paying a lot of $$$.
