Great article. However, it is not ground breaking since it was written by Adam Rittenberg who is one of the writers on the Big Ten blog. Would have blown my mind if it was written from someone not associated with ESPN's Big Ten blog.

Straight up that is the best article Rittenberg has ever written!

That's not saying much.

And 37-man recruiting classes.

HAHAHA

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

The last couple of sentences are hilarious!

I don't have a problem with the NCAA making and enforcing the SEC's 50 mile rule, just after they adopt the BIG's oversigning rules.

I feel for Rittenberg, he's one of the few rational writers at ESPN, working with his colleagues must feel like living out Idiocracy. Good read.

Those are B1G bloggers, not good ones, but B1G bloggers; if i'm not mistaken, they're freelance too. They write questionable stuff about the U of SEC on occasion.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

Here's hoping OSU tries to do something similar...imagine if they were at a camp where they could work with Gibson...wouldn't that help?

Rettenburg was later reprimanded and was reminded that SEC is king.  He had to write I'm sorry SEC on the big board 50 times. 

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

That was quite literally the greatest thing I have ever read on ESPN.com.

"How could Division III power Wisconsin-Whitewater turn down a chance to bring back favorite son Bret Bielema to America's dairyland?"

Easy, they have standards.

Yeah, well…that’s just like, your opinion, man.

Also, could lead to a cheeseburger and (deep fried) Twinkie shortage in Whitewater....

This would've blown my mine if it was written by Pat Forde...

All the rules these fairies push to the limit and they are going to cry about this? Shows what a bunch of panzies they really are. Also shows they will band together and keep transgressions in house. My 30/30 needs cleaned I'll be busy for the next hour or so.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.
