It seems that for the last half decade that everyone keeps saying "oh the Big Ten is down this year". Well if they were constantly lacking in talent wouldnt they just not be that good. Its all crap if you ask me.

I think it has more to do with style of play. Football is grind in the Big Ten. Basketball is alot slower and defensive style. Other confrences do have the more athletic player, I admit that, and most of the experts and fans across the nation take that as overall better.

SEC football is the best as much as I hate to say that but the Big 12 and Big 10 arent far behind

Big Ten basketball always has someone make a run the tourney but what Illinios did this year in the Big Ten is so rare. Teams usually always are knocking each other down the top 25.

It all comes down to the Heartland discrimination Smile

Alot of the problem is that the Big Ten just beats the hell out of each other and other teams. We may not win but we just seem to be scrappy.

It's like the old NFC Central.
It wasn't razzle dazzle..they just pounded each other.

BASKETBALL-the big ten is one of those conferences with a huge desparity in depth the top teams are great, but the bottom teams are BAD, the top of the big ten could beat anybody teams like Illinois and MSU are very good, but beyond those 2 and wisconsin it is crap, other conferences have more depth through the conferences.

FOOTBALL- regardless of what anyone says the big ten is a top 3, conference(I would say 1.ACC 2.SEC 3.BIG TEN). OSU, Mich, Wisconsin, Mich St., even northwestern all can compete with anyone in the country on a good day, there are some matchup probles with the lower teams but I would never pick against OSU or Mich they are both great teams who can beat anyone, I think the big ten is constantly underrated.

Come on Duece - How are you going to leave Iowa out of the football list. They have finished top 10 three year in a row but you mention the likes of Michigan St and Northwestern. Thank you though for saying the Big Ten is underrated in football.

And as far as Wisconsin goes in basketball-nobody likes their style but I highly doubt you could call them crap.

Last but not least, there is no way the ACC is king of football Smile

Sorry about that I didn't mean to leave them off just forgot to mention them they are a good team too and i was mentioning wisconsin as a good basketball team i just worded it oddly.

I didn't say the ACC was the king of football I just think they are the best all around conference, every team in the ACC has talent other than Duke, many teams if they were in other conferences could be playing for conference titles but there is too much depth in the conference, FSU, Miami, VT, GT, BC, NC St., Virginia, and Clem(good for a few games every year then they self destruct) no other conference has that kind of depth, the only one close is the SEC but they only have 4 good teams LSU, Tenn, Aub might be but they lost a lot, and FL ( sorry if i forget anyone thats off the top of my head)
