With Wisconsin losing to Michigan State last night, it seems as though the Big Ten once again lacks that superior team who could play for the BCS National Championship.
Over the years, Big Ten football has slipped a bit from the glory days and no longer has the depth that it used to have.
The conference is very top-heavy with two or three legitimate contenders in the country, along with some mediocre teams and some very bad teams.
Luckily for the Big Ten, the Big East exists. Otherwise, they may be lingering at the bottom of the list of major conferences in college football.
