This Is Why We're Better Than You: Part Two

D MarlerContributor ISeptember 26, 2010

In late August I wrote an article titled "This Is Why We're Better Than You" (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/438559-this-is-why-were-better-than-you) after hearing that Ohio State had canceled practice because the heat index went into the mid 90's.

I received the expected amount of grief. Some football related, some personal.

I honestly thought I was finished with that topic until seeing The Big 10 schedule for Saturday, Sept. 25.

I have been watching college football for quite some time but saw something yesterday that I had never seen before.

As I was preparing to watch Bama/Arkansas, South Carolina/Auburn and LSU/West Virginia, the Big 10 schedule was flashed across the screen.

Their entire conference took a week off.

The SEC had six unbeaten teams squaring off against each other with the No. 1 team in the Nation (Alabama) going against the No. 10 team (Arkansas).

We had the latest installment from the Auburn "Cardiac" Tigers and for good measure, threw in an SEC/Big East match-up in Death Valley.

This is what The Big 10 offered up:

Illinois-Off

Indiana vs. Akron

Iowa vs. Ball State

Michigan vs. Bowling Green

Michigan State vs. Northern Colorado

Minnesota vs. Northern Illinois

Northwestern vs. Central Michigan

Ohio State vs. Eastern Michigan

Penn State vs. Temple

Purdue vs. Toledo

Wisconsin vs. Austin Peay

 

The SEC?

Alabama vs. Arkansas

Auburn vs. South Carolina

Kentucky vs. Florida

Georgia vs. Mississippi State

Tennessee vs. UAB

Ole Miss vs. Fresno State

LSU vs. West Virginia

Vandy-Off

 

You tell me.
