    Denver Post Article: Big Ten One Big Bust

    Henderson: Big Ten Conference looking like one big bust in college football - The Denver Post

    A few snippets:
    "There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that Notre Dame dropped Michigan to improve its strength of schedule. And, no, Central Michigan isn't scheduling Iowa in a two-for-one. Iowa is sticking to its guns. It won't visit Central Michigan twice."


    "Actually, if you observed the mass population shift from the Midwest to the South, Southwest and West Coast over the past 10 years, you saw this coming. In plain terms, the Big Ten just doesn't have the talent base to draw from that it once had. Alabama, LSU and Florida have had more players drafted in the NFL's first round (17) the last three years than the entire Big Ten (13). In that same period, Ohio State has had only three players drafted in the first three rounds."


    "And the best news for the Big Ten is its schedule finally softens this weekend. Big Ten teams start playing each other."

    Tom Osborne was apparently looking in a different direction...
