#Mizzou D-tackle Sheldon Richardson on Georgia: "It's like watching Big Ten football. It's old man football."

Tough talk from a player for a team the Big Ten rejected. How 'bout if you actually play an SEC football game before you start ragging on charter members of the league, all right, Sheldon? You're the Vietnamese boat people of the conference; we rescued you from oblivion. Show a little respect until you actually win something . . . something like a game against a Division I-A opponent, O.K.? Go 'Dawgs!

'Big Ten, Pac-12 suspend plans for scheduling collaboration' - well, there's a disappointing email subject line.

From George Schroeder Remember the plan for Big Ten and Pac-12 to play each other in the regular season every year? It's off now. The Pac-12 began setting the stage for this a few weeks ago as the playoff was taking shape. With nine conference games, the Pac-12 has every team in the league committed to more tough games than any conference that doesn't have nine-game schedules. Adding this arrangement would basically mean a 10-game conference schedule (only one of them doesn't matter towards the league title). The Pac-12 only wanted to go forward with this if there was going to be a firm strength of schedule component to the playoff selection process. With this agreement being put on ice, it likely means that no such restriction will be put on the committee. They will consider strength of schedule, of course, but it appears that no independent SOS measure will compel them to do anything. Thus, the Pac-12 bailed. Here's your press release from both conferences. Each cites the Pac-12's nine-game schedule as the main issue.

If you haven't noticed, the top level of college football is now narrowed to the Big Four – Pac-12, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC. Those 48 schools control most of the influence, power, money and, most importantly, product in the Football Bowl Subdivision."

"Can [the Big Ten] get the New York market with Rutgers or Connecticut? You can do it with Notre Dame."

This reasonable position is the same one adopted by Mark Richt, which got Coach Richt ousted from the good graces of the zealots at Oversigning.com. I'll be curious to see whether they are similarly harsh in their judgment of one another of their own. Go 'Dawgs!

ND is the really hot girl that you flirted with for years and when you finally hit it, dead fish. So there you are, feeling stupid after having wasted all that time and it was about as good as rubbing one out in the shower before bed. And no matter what, no one feels great about rubbing one out. Nebraska on the other hand, is the girl next door that you’ve always liked but never really considered. You’ve always respected her, and kept up with what she’s doing, but it never really dawned on you she was a girl. Then one day things just happened to click… Now you’re laying there with a cigarette hanging out your mouth thinking. Whoa… I’m going to have to work out just to keep up. Nebraska all the way…

And I think that the SEC has proved to not only me but everybody else that they have the strongest football-playing conference. But you know what? The ACC has proved that in basketball, and we’re not going to stop playing either of them.

http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/21884/jim-delany-it-was-a-very-long-day This comes from Adam Rittenberg's interview with Jim Delany earlier today. This quote concerns me in that it could be indicative of a national trend in perception of the conference.

The [Big Ten] also announced today that its football divisions, starting with the 2011 season, will be "Legends" and "Leaders." A breakdown of the divisions is listed below: LEGENDS: Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern LEADERS: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin

No joke. The ACC's division names appear sane by comparison. Never thought I'd see that day.
