    Big Ten is most represented conference in the Super Bowl

    22 players and 7 coaches with ties to the Big Ten. Anybody know how many have ties to the Big XII?

    I don't even know where you'd find that, other than individually looking at each player/coach, and I'm WAY too lazy to do that.

    This little tidbit probably leaked from the Big Ten office. After the Big Ten's stellar performance in the bowls, they are probably grasping at any straw they can to bolster the conference's football image...

    Re: Big Ten is most represented conference in the Super Bowl

    I saw it on the Big Ten Network, so obviously there's some spin. They didn't say how many were starters or play significant minutes.

    Just curious about the Big XII ties. I can't think of any starters, off the top of my head.

    Re: Big Ten is most represented conference in the Super Bowl

    Most worthless stat. EVER

    Let's say the Titans were playing the Eagles. Than is it the SEC?

    Or the Ravens and Panthers. Pac 10

    2 teams doesn't speak for the rest of the league as far as where the talent is coming from

    Maybe they got confused about Kurt Warner, and assumed that he played at Iowa?

    Re: Big Ten is most represented conference in the Super Bowl

    Wow, I'm not saying this makes the Big Ten superior to all others. I just thought it was interesting, and wondered how many Big XII guys there were. Geeze.

    I also think it's interesting that the two starting quarterbacks come from the MVC and MAC, does anyone want to rip on that as well?

    Couldn't find the Super Bowl, this is a breakdown of projected starters league-wide from the beginning season, closest I could find.

    What conferences are the NFL s starters coming from? | HoumaToday.com | The Courier | Houma, LA

    SEC 137
    ACC 121
    Big Ten 105
    Big 12 72
    Pac-10 70
    Big East 33

    Also breaks it down position by position.

    Interesting. I'd bet half of the ACC's starters hail from Miami...

    I am willing to bet the conference is also dominating the ushers and concession workers.
