They ALL pad their schedule. You are the one somehow claiming that it's only the Big Ten who commits a sin by doing it.
Being mean? Unless being stupid is being mean, I wouldn't say that. You're giving yourself way too much credit.
And as far as cyclical goes, a conference's strength is in it's coaches. Until the Big Ten can hire some decent coaches this side of Paterno and Tressel, they'll continue to suck hind teet behind the SEC and maybe even the ACC and PAC 10.
