Although the times are changing in college basketball as a whole and the Big Ten Conference, it will be hard for me to top this last four-year span where I watched and went to as many collegiate basketball games as I could.
A recent graduate of the University of Illinois, I went to every single conference home game for the past four seasons and made it to the Big Ten Tournament each of those years, too.
Previously, I wrote http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1323286-evan-turner-headlines-list-of-big-ten-teams-ultimate-starting-lineups-this-era where I picked five players from teams of the past four seasons and then made an "ultimate starting lineup" for each Big Ten school.
So for the sake of this article, I will be power ranking each of the 12 schools and how they performed during my time as a student. To make things easier—and take away any bias on my part—I ranked teams based on how many conference games each won over the past four years, among other things.
