Tbf, we would've won if the refs weren't sackless pieces of sh** that decided to look the other way on obvious holding penalties in the two biggest plays of MSU's final drive, so I don't hold that one against us (or the West)....................................just sayin.The majority of East teams have won a championship(in the east west era), zero west teams. It's not just an OSU difference. But yes they're clearly the best b1g team the past decade or so
And while it's good and all that 4 of the East teams have won titles, we know that they're done as far as "new" champs goes. Maryland, Rutgers and Indiana are sol in the current state of college football.
At least in the West, Illinois is about the only team, right now anyway because the jury is still out on Sideshow Bert, that you couldn't see a path for them to reach the Big Ten CG (and Nebraska but that's moreso because of their own failures and lulz .......but expectations-wise, they still believe they should be competing for the West).
I also didn't include Purdue, because some people seem to think they're a favorite to win the division this coming year.......
But the problem starts and ends with Ohio State being too good. Let's get through a few more years of OSU not even playing in the CCG and then we'll revisit this.
