Default Big Ten Haters Read Up

Doesn't make much sense for the conference to shoot themselves in the foot like this. Especially since they have been accused by SEC fans of purposefully trying to make the path to the BCS games easier.

http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?s...=tsn&type=lgns

I mentioned the horrible non-call on the Illinois fumble in the first few minutes. Again, I'm not blaming the OSU loss on the refs, but I AM questioning the refs, and am DEFINITELY calling out fans who ignorantly tried to claim that the Big Ten engages in the same practices that the SEC does, namely, doing whatever it takes to get the best conference teams into the big bowl games.

It would seem that the Big Ten not only plays fair, they go out of their own way to keep their OWN conference teams from those games!

What were SEC fans accusing the Big Ten of exactly ? Maybe I missed it but I'm not sure what you are talking about..

There have been posters here who claim that the Big Ten is involved in some kind of chicanery in order to provide the path of least resistence to BCS bowls for it's marquee teams. Kind of like the way the SEC refs are conveniently just a little too one-sided in a couple recent LSU games.

hmm.... haven't heard of that on either side. Must be out of the loop.

You aparently didn't see the LSU/Alabama game.

I can tell you that this fine southern gentleman and SEC fan was none too pleased at the officiating in that affair.

We already know. We overcame no less than 4 horrific calls to beat Michigan to win today. Good teams can do that.

Jesus. They are back at it again. BS penalty basically takes at least 3, maybe 7 off the board.

Attn: SEC Refs. LSU doesn't need help against Ole Miss. Let them play the game.
