  • BIG 10 -ALL WINNERS
  • Congrats to the Big 10 teams -they all won their bowl games! I don't watch/follow the NFL anymore, quit long before the National Anthem disrespect issue started, so only follow college. I must say I don't like the new agenda of 'playoffs' and one take-all championship game -it's all only for money. Bring back the good old days of Bowl Games on New Years Day -Rose Bowl, et al, and them there.

  • The Big 10 did well, indeed, in their bowl games but there are no Big 10 teams in the BCS.

    I'm from Indiana and have long related to the Big 10, but the fact is that either Alabama or Clemson, would beat any of the Big 10 teams 2 out of 3 times on any given night this year. Oklahoma has already beaten the best team in the Big 10. Not sure about Georgia.

    Agree, wholeheartedly regarding the NFL. Absolutely no interest.

  • I don't know about that. If so, it is because of all the years of illegal recruiting and building up those programs. Back in the old days the Big 10 ruled. Remember any team can beat any other team on any other day of the week.

  • Is my memory a bit weak? I seem to remember only watching the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl and I think Cotton Bowl about 50+ years ago. You are right, all about the money. Capitalism at work. Bragging rights are secondary.
