Let's get over crying about how one of the team's "played well" against a good team. Big deal. All the Big 10 folks this year were going nuts about how great the conference was, while everyone else in the nation just kind of rolled their eyes. If you're making claims that you're the best conference you don't cling to a team "playing well" in a loss. The conferences' top 3 teams all losing out of conference games by week 2 really puts that in perspective, even if it were against the #1, #2, and #3 teams in the nations (which it certainly wasn't).
I'm loving the cover story on espn right now:
Big Ten's Bad Day
The Big Ten's big three laid a big egg. On a day set up for the conference to shine, loses by top-10 ranked Iowa, Michigan and Ohio State left the Big Ten feeling small.
Now I just need the Pac-10 to do the same and I will be a very happy man.
