I'm as big a Michigan fan as you will find and year in year out the SEC is the best conference in college football.

Well said. This game could have gone either way. If Hamby doesn't bobble and miss the TD, different outcome. If they make the field goal at the end, different outcome. It was an amazing game and this should not hurt the Big 10 or OSU. In fact, it makes OSU better in some people eyes b/c of the way they played Texas.

So quit hatin :-D

Ummmm..... There may have been a time when that was not a laughable statement, but now-a-days, the Big 10 does not even come close to owning college football... If you were a betting man, and you were to place a bet on a National Champion coming from 1 of 2 conferences at the begininng of every year, you would be a fool not to bet on the SEC and the ACC....

Currently, the ACC and SEC combined have 6 of the top 8 ranked teams in the country, and 11 of the top 25.....

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.
