    Inflated records!? The Big10 has historically been so good top to bottom the cumulative in-conference record rarely surpasses .500.

    Unpopular opinion, I don't care about that game a ton. Cancel it for all I care.

    You're right, its not an popular opinion to dump the premier game in the state for the season.

    More quotes from Moos at Nebby.

    Like the comment about the fans being interested in playing former Big 8 members. Hmm, if only there had been a way to have those schools on your sideline every year, how great that could be!

    Also love how he talks about playing KU, KSU, Mizzou and then admits they would probably stay away from OU. Why would that be? OU is their traditional rival from the Big 8. I suppose it is because it is a longer road trip for fans than going to Lawrence.

    Screw Nebraska. They can rot away in the B1G. I hope the remaining B12 schools tell them to pound sand.

    Nubby was the first to leave, however Missouri started the ball rolling due to open campaigning the B1G, which was the first domino for the B1G to look at Nebby and Nebby be looking elsewhere. I'm not defending Nebby, however remember that Missouri is the #1 POS of the traitors.

    I would like to see ISU schedule a game with Missouri for the Telephone Trophy and ISU win it back and then promptly tell them to go **** themselves, we are never playing them again.

    If they don’t realign the teams again, how does it make it easier for the big ten top teams? They are still all on the same side.

    Will agree. Guess I meant teams that are considered to be the conference blue bloods. I would put those as Michigan, OSU and penn state.

    True....don't know who could be moved from those 3 because of geography and the OSU/mICH rivalry.

    **** rivalry tradition. I love how the B1G has preached tradition and the turns around and whores themselves out to Rutgers for a TV market that doesn't even exist...

    Didn't like the Rutgers addition...

    That said they aren't going to mess with OSU/Mich

    I get that the conference needs to keep that rivalry but you can't protect all of the other ones just because of "tradition." The B1G needs to blow up the division and create some balance. If that leads to Mich and Mich St or Indiana and Purdue not playing every year so be it.

    Would be fine by my considering Iowa has had the 3rd toughest SOS, on average, in the B1G since the league expanded to 14 teams.

    Crazy to think of how many games we could win if our SOS was merely middle of the pack in the conference.

    Weak conferences dont nearly run the table in bowl games, including 3 NY 6 games.
