In late August I wrote an article titled "This Is Why We're Better Than You" (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/438559-this-is-why-were-better-than-you) after hearing that Ohio State had canceled practice because the heat index went into the mid 90's.
I received the expected amount of grief. Some football related, some personal.
I honestly thought I was finished with that topic until seeing The Big 10 schedule for Saturday, Sept. 25.
I have been watching college football for quite some time but saw something yesterday that I had never seen before.
As I was preparing to watch Bama/Arkansas, South Carolina/Auburn and LSU/West Virginia, the Big 10 schedule was flashed across the screen.
Their entire conference took a week off.
The SEC had six unbeaten teams squaring off against each other with the No. 1 team in the Nation (Alabama) going against the No. 10 team (Arkansas).
We had the latest installment from the Auburn "Cardiac" Tigers and for good measure, threw in an SEC/Big East match-up in Death Valley.
This is what The Big 10 offered up:
Indiana vs. Akron
Iowa vs. Ball State
Michigan vs. Bowling Green
Michigan State vs. Northern Colorado
Minnesota vs. Northern Illinois
Northwestern vs. Central Michigan
Ohio State vs. Eastern Michigan
Penn State vs. Temple
Purdue vs. Toledo
Wisconsin vs. Austin Peay
Alabama vs. Arkansas
Auburn vs. South Carolina
Kentucky vs. Florida
Georgia vs. Mississippi State
Tennessee vs. UAB
Ole Miss vs. Fresno State
LSU vs. West Virginia
You tell me.
