The Big Ten has some of the most successful basketball coaches in the nation. Most of them have different philosophies, but they're successful.
The reason why the Big Ten is such a successful conference every year is mainly due to the coaches at each respective program. These coaches build a program off of character, tradition and honor. You very rarely hear about players in the Big Ten getting into off-court troubles.
