  As the resident sports idiot on this sight, I have a question.

   What the heck is wrong with some of those guys that write hateful things about the Big Ten? Why is everyone so angry at the Big Ten? Really! I'll admit, I am the last human on the planet to actually care, but..... Jeez!

    I read many posts about other Conferences by Big Ten writers. They don't seem to be too negitive. Sure the good old natured razzing is there but the anger isnt. I wonder why? What do the others have against us? It can't be the respect that the national media gives us! We get nothing from them. It became so bad that we finally decided to create our own network! We finally decided to keep the money in the Big Ten! That was a freaking great idea!

    So, the question is, "What is the issue?" Forgive me, I am the only person here that knows nothing. I am proud of that fact and I thank all of you for letting me play in your sandbox. Tell me!

    Sure I love to razz you guys about things and stuff. It is fun! Tell this poor old dude why the hate exisits. Trashing your opponent is part of the game. From JR. High to Pro Ball. That is normal. I understand that and I love to add fuel to the fire!

    Perhaps I am stupid. I really don't get it. We are "Good Sports" Why aren't you? There isn't a Big Ten fan anywhere that doesn't love a great game! Yours, mine or whoever. We enjoy great ball games. Football, Basketball, Wrestling, whatever! I think some of you could learn from us. We might teach you to respect others. We might teach you to have fun! We just might teach you that its all just good fun!

    As the Holidays approach, God forbid! Let us try to respect each other and get along. If not, the Big Ten will kick butt again! HA!  Grin, it's fun!

P.S. I ran a spell check. it gave me an odd response. Forgive my mistakes. According to my 7th grage typing teacher, "I would never get it!" she might have been right.

Have fun with this!
