No Northern Bowl Games
One great disadvantage the Big Ten has in bowl games is the fact that they have to come to the south or out west to play the bowl games. This basically makes all big ten bowl games, road games. I.e. Michigan vs USC in Pasadena, CA. Michigan has played many games there against USC and UCLA.
Big Ten teams play many bowl games in Florida, Louisiana and Georgia. Where are the SEC teams from? Have the SEC teams come north and play at the end of the season and start checking records then.
That's my peace--we really just need a tournament at the end of the season.
Editor's Note Thanks Josh for the comment. This seems to be the #1 comment/complaint that big ten fans make. Of course it is true, buy my response is always -- that's life! That's where the games are played. I mean, the Big Ten has a huge advantage vs the SEC in hockey -- because they have more ice! But, in football, the climate in the South is more hospitable. That's just the way it is. Part of the game.
