I mean what's the point in staying here? U of M has contributed greatly into making the conference powerful. So powerful that the conference is now stealing other teams from other conferences. Yet that's all that Michigan gets in return is a bunch of crap. It's to the point where Michigan will have a hard time competing because their program will be under much more scrutiny than the other teams in the conference. Every player we recruit now will have to have a perfect record with great grades.
I'm sure other conferences would love to have Michigan with their tradition and academics. Or if Michigan went independent I'm sure teams would line up to have a chance to play them. I'm just wondering what other people think about this. Should Michigan consider leaving the Big Ten?
