    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

    Remember Urban Meyer? He created football and then rested on the 7th day.

    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?
