    He didn't leave the B1G - he left Wisconsin. Why? Because Wisconsin has never paid its head coaches. Not sure why, but they just never have. We have a number of programs that are willing to pay top dollar for a great coach.

    As for the lack of championships over the last decade or so - that is a part of the ebb and flow of this game. The SEC is on top right now, but that will change.

    The Big 10 has won 3 Championships since 1968 (including Michigan's split in 1997)

    What decade was The Big 10's decade?

    The SEC has won 14 since 1968 --

    This thread is about the future, not the past. If you hate the B1G, no sweat - but that has nothing to do with this thread.

    Don't hate the Big 10 -- that was my point -- what's there to hate?

    Now -- I do tire of the un-earned respect that most of the Big 10 feels entitled to.....


    With regards to the future -- the question was about what conference could challenge the SEC in the near future -- I said "Pac 10" you said "Big 10" -- and used Coaching as your justification -- I responded with your 3x Championship team just lost their Coach to our 7th or 8th best team.

    Not sure how you think they'll challenge us soon

    Really - it is dripping from your post.

    Now -- I do tire of the un-earned respect that most of the Big 10 feels entitled to.....
    Have I ever done that?

    Not sure about "soon", or if it will ever happen. We are simply not as committed to college football up here as you are in the South. I was simply talking about the cyclical nature of the sport, and why the B1G is on the rise (relatively speaking).

    I have read many posts on this board about Meyer "inventing" or "creating" things. Where did this originate?
