What a day to be a fan of a Big 10 team, why you might ask, oh yeah because every big game played by them yesterday was won. So whether you're a Wisconsin, Nebraska, Michigan, Michigan State, or Ohio State fan you won in a big game yesterday. Oh yeah, and Iowa lost to a bum ass North Dakota State team showing just how average of a team they really are, making things for the rest of the Big 10 teams with actual talent a whole lot easier. Let's go over how Dominant the Big 10 was yesterday, and why the SEC needs to watch out because there's a new powerhouse in this country.
23 Oregon VS Nebraska:
Oregon is the best PAC 12 team besides Washington, and they might be better than Washington too but for arguments sake let's just say they're the second best team in that conference. Well, Nebraska isn't even ranked and there's five teams who are ranked in the Big 10, and Nebraska isn't one of them. So our 6th best team, beat the PAC 12's second best team, that's pretty pathetic if you ask me. I don't want to say pathetic actually because I feel like that takes credit away from Nebraska and how good of a football team they are. It just goes to prove the depth of quality teams that can be found in the big 10 conference. Nebraska, a middle of the road team in our conference beat one of the PAC 12's best teams.
12 Michigan State VS 18 Notre Dame:
Notre Dame is one hell of a football team even though their record doesn't prove it right now, they've had tough early opponents that have been able to beat them in close games. DeShone Kizer is the real deal, this kid has a big time arm, and can make plays with his feet. He can be a potential NFL quarterback one day for sure. An always outstanding Michigan State team came into South Bend and just simply out performed the Fighting Irish. Defensively they overpowered the Notre Dame offense, they allowed under 50 rushing yards which is just absurd to hear in a college football game. Michigan State was definitely the better of the two teams and they picked up another huge win for the Big 10 defeating a ranked opponent on the road. The final score was 36-28, but it wasn't that close, Notre Dame was down 36-7 late in the third before putting together a few scoring drives in garbage time. Michigan State dominated the game at all facets and picked up a big win while sending a message to CFB.
3 Ohio State VS 14 Oklahoma:
Everyone doubted my Buckeyes, they're too young, they lost too many players, they lack experience, I laugh at all of you as Urban Myers continues to build an unstoppable force up north. We're the cream of the crop in this conference, we are at the head of the best conference in college football right now. Last night we set out to prove that we were the real deal, all week I heard how Oklahoma was going to bounce back against us to get their first big win of the season, J.T. Barret and company had different plans. Ohio State decided not only that they were going to beat OU, but that they were going to send a message to college football by embarrassing Oklahoma on National television. The Buckeyes offense gets better with every snap, and the defense clearly proved they can shut down an experienced offense led by one of the better quarterbacks in the nation. Ohio State showed a lot of people that they're the real deal last night, the scary part is those young players they have are only going to get better each and every week. Urban Myers is neck and neck with Nick Saban for best coach in CFB, but after this week they will be neck and neck for who is #1 team in the country.
Is it time to deem the Big 10 as the new best conference in college football? I certainly think so after what I saw this week, they took out quality opponents on the road in many of the cases, and all walked away with W's, except for Iowa, but we all wanted them to get exposed for the trash team they are so it worked out. All I'm saying is that, it's time to rethink that the SEC is the clear cut #1 conference in the nation, the coaches and players at these Big 10 schools are starting to look a little more elite.
