    Big 10 Commissioner rips SEC

    Big Ten-SEC ill will still burns - NCAA Football - Yahoo! Sports


    Interesting story. This quote is my favorite:

    Conversely, both leagues deal with some low graduation rates (the latest numbers have LSU and Ohio State at 51 and 53 percent, respectively), occasional academic fraud and various player suspensions and legal issues. The SEC and Big Ten have long ranked 1-2 nationally in total major NCAA infractions.

    There are no angels in college football. No pure devils, either. In terms of football rosters, there is little difference between conferences, but Delany chose to throw rocks in his glass house anyway.

    Wow, what was he thinking? This makes my desire for the BTN to fail even greater.

    Hopefully LSU stomps OSU in the championship game. Sounds like this is some sweet motivational material here...

    No conference is pure. Even the mighty B12 has its ills. These two conferences just get televised more there for they are exposed more often.

    I understand that every conference has some problems but i don't see the other commissioners saying negative things about other conferences. Just another example of the arrogance of the big 10.

    The one cool thing right now is how many Hackeye fans are complaining about not being able to see the games because they don't or can't get BTN.

    Boo hoo. Poor babies. TRY BEING A CYCLONE FAN FOR A YEAR.

    I'm sure this won't be a long-term problem, but right now, it makes me smile.

    Re: Big 10 Commissioner rips SEC

    The Big 10 is in total denial. All FB powerhouses and most schools in the BCS conferences have a "dirty underbelly" with respect to what is happening in the athletic department and specifically with FB and BB.

    By the way, is it still the case that the graduation rate for the general population of incoming freshman at a large school is typically 20-25%? I always wonder why they neglect to report this...typically, athletes graduate at a higher rate than regular students due to the special attention they get...tutors, academic counseling, study facilities, etc.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Yeah, well, LSU ripped OSU, so I guess the conferences are even now...
