The rumors of the Big Ten's demise have been greatly overstated...
AGREED!!! People do need to realize that the Big Ten isn't just Ohio State, it isn't just Michigan. Penn State has put together a great stretch of 4 years(2 Big Ten Titles and they have won 3 out of 4 Bowl Games) together and if everything goes accordingly will compete with Ohio State for the Big Ten Championship.

Also the Big Ten has a few Dark Horse Calibur teams.

Iowa: Returns 14 starters from the team that won the Outback Bowl last year. If they can overcome the loss of Shon Greene on offense they could be a great force in the Big Ten.

Michigan State: Returns 15 starters and the only big shoes they need to fill are offense at QB and RB and at DE.

Michigan: Traditionally I'd usually put them in contention for the Big Ten Championship no matter what, but this team after going 3-9 is going to be much better Returning almost their entire offense. If they can revamp their D they'll be in good shape.

In all honesty the Big Ten has a shot to send 8-9(Only if conferences can't fill their bids) teams to Bowl Games this year depending on what teams like Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Northwestern do. The only teams who appear to not have a bowl game this year to look forward to appear to be Indiana, and Purdue.

Illinois has recruited VERY well over the last few years as well. It was ashamed to see them dismantled in the Rose Bowl in 2007, a game they clearly didn't belong in (and only reached because of them upsetting OSU). I think that set the program back last year.

But, yeah, I see some emerging teams, like MSU and Iowa putting the Big ten right back on the map again.

That crap gets spewed at a fellow Big Ten Member(He who said that knows who he is. Just a heads up, I'm not reffering to you rev)

I'm also, apparently, not allowed to be a Cavs or Indians fan. Even though I chose those allegiances at a VERY young age, and stuck through thick and (mostly) thin, apparently it would have been better for me to be a fairweather fan and adopt ALL Pittsburgh teams, either that or abandon the Steelers.

Yeah, that's gonna happen...

OSU picked to win Big Ten again, and Pryor is picked as the preseason offensive player of the year. Let the hating begin!

Buckeyes picked to win Big Ten

By Associated Press

POSTED: 10:44 a.m. EDT, Jul 27, 2009

COLUMBUS: Ohio State is the team to beat in this year's Big Ten football race.

The Buckeyes were picked to win it all by voters at the conference's football media day. The results were announced today. Penn State was the runner-up, followed by Michigan State.

Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was selected as the preseason Offensive Player of the Year, and Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones was singled out on defense.

The Buckeyes are pursuing their fifth straight Big Ten title after going 10-3 a year ago and tying Penn State for the title with a 7-1 mark. Twelve starters will be returning for Ohio State.

Can't same I'm surprised either. I still think Penn State will be Ohio State's biggest challenge to winning the title.

There was a longer article in the Columbus Dispatch that elaborated on this. Basically, the columnist stated that the respect of the entire conference lies on the Buckeyes shoulders when they play USC, as there is no other OOC game of anything approaching that magnitude. It even had a quote from Ron Zook stating that all the other teams will and should be pulling for the Bucks simply out of the fact that a win garners a lot of respect for the conference.

Pretty sure there are some people here who will not agree...

I'd say that game, and not losing any games in embarrasing fashion against teams that should be teams the Big Ten should beat will do the trick.
