You need to research this more before you make statements like:

2.  While oversigning is slightly restricted and monitored in the B10, it is not banned.  In fact it is possible that Saban could have signed most, if not all of his classes at Alabama under the B10 rule.

From an SI article 

The Big Ten has no issue with oversigning because it banned the practice in 1956. The conference actually loosened its rule in 2002 to allow schools to oversign by three players, but even that rule is drastically different from the NCAA rule now in effect. According to Big Ten associate commissioner Chad Hawley, schools are allowed three over the 85-man limit, not the annual 25-man limit. If, for example, Michigan ends a season with 20 open scholarship spots, then Michigan may sign 23 players. No more.

Not the big nut?  They both suck.  On a side note I suck.  I never knew about this man and I'm grateful Ramzy wrote this.  I will look at the picture of him crying whenever it pops up randomly and think of this.  Great job Ramzy.

I stand by my previous statement catch 5.  I noticed you didn't touch the over signing, 1 year vs 4 year scholarships.  Media hype is a small factor but it's still a factor.

 S-E-C! S-E-C! I have more respect for SEC football than most in Columbus. Seven straight national titles certainly isn't luck.

no it's the combination of over signing, bagman, low academic standards, media influencing conference perception and always having a 50% representation (or more) in the final game.

Thanks Remy.  Loved this Gem

Blair Conway: Never felt bad for Lantry he was a loser. He missed several kicks in our '73 game and missed again in the '74 game that would have won the game. He choked both years and that's a loser.

It's more likely he hates employees that look at the site during work hours....or a UM alum.  If it's the second one please continue to view as much as possible.  Viva larésistance!!!!!

this is the first time I've been envious of anything from the late 1980s

My wife knows I'm crazy.  I switched cable providers for one game.

When they offer 300 kids and land 30%  it sure feels like they get them all.  Got to love SEC over signing.
