Alabama is once again in the national championship and the Big Ten just experienced one of its worst seasons in recent memory. Not only were there two teams ineligible for bowl games because of NCAA sanctions, but teams such as Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin didn't live up to the expectations set before the year began.
The 2012 Big Ten all-conference team was recently put together by the media and coaches. While the conference as a whole flopped like the movie the Green Lantern, it doesn't mean that there aren’t talented players throughout the conference.
This brought up an interesting question of how the Crimson Tide, arguably the most talented team in the country, could fare against the best players in the Big Ten.
Would a team full of all-stars manage to beat a regular team, or would Nick Saban and company find a way to beat an entire conference?
The answer may actually surprise you.
