Simple question to rivals.com experts, "Which conference was most impressive in bowls?" All four selected Big Ten. Doesn't mean much, I just thought it was interesting.
Rivals Freebie on the Big Ten
Maybe the big ten is back?
Aside from tUofOSU getting blown up real good annually in any BCS competition after the Clarett year the "down" Big 10 has owned a respectable bowl record (see Capital One Bowl v SEC in the last 10 years for example). A review of the last decade isn't the oblivion described by the Ess Eee Cee apologist media.
The conference certainly did well in its four big bowl games. You cannot forget, however, that a handful of teams, none from our conference, were playing in the bowl games from which a national championship team is crowned.
Regardless, this give us BT people a reprieve. Let's hope it is the start of a trend.
I have worn out my cape and mask from running around defending the Big Ten for so many years now.
By day, I'm an unassuming agorophobe. By night, I am BIG TEN (It's Actually Eleven, I know STFU) MAN.
Faster than a speeding 340 lbs offensive lineman from Stanky's Carbuncle, Iowa...
More powerful than an Anti Rich Rodriguez Faction at Michigan
Drunker than Barry Alvarez in a hot tub with a cheerleader
It's BIG TEN (It's Actaully Eleven, I know STFU) MAN!
In next week's episode, Big Ten Man is engaged in an all out brawl at Horny's Hardy Har Har Comedy Club with 16 drunk bridal shower attendees...
"Goddammit! The Big Ten plays all their bowl games on the road in warm weather sites! You try to do that bitches!"
"Aww fuck you! Are you the stripper?"
"No. I am not. I am BIG TEN (It's Actually Eleven, I know STFU) MAN!"
"GIRLS! I've got 10 new dildos as gifts! Let's make sure they work! ATTACK!"
"WIAT! NO! The Big Ten just won four bowl games! NO NO HELLLLP MEEEEE OH GOD NOOOO!"
Tune in next week to hear Big Ten Man say, "WOW! A $32,000.oo bill to have 10 dildos removed from my asshole?"
We can only hope that this is a foretaste of the feast to come for the Big Ten's reputation and bowl games.
A Big Ten revival can only help Michigan with it's national image and perception.
so true. if the big ten can improve as much next year as is has from last year to this year, then it will go a long ways towards putting the big ten back near the top and ending the reign of national championships by the SEC
