Grading the Big Ten's Bowl Performance in the BCS Era

A look at the B1G's "bowl struggles" in the BCS era.

And I think that the SEC has proved to not only me but everybody else that they have the strongest football-playing conference. But you know what? The ACC has proved that in basketball, and we’re not going to stop playing either of them.

http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/21884/jim-delany-it-was-a-very-long-day This comes from Adam Rittenberg's interview with Jim Delany earlier today. This quote concerns me in that it could be indicative of a national trend in perception of the conference.

Dallas Football Classic Set

The Big Ten has nailed down it's 6th non-BCS Bowl affiliation. As we have previously noted, the Big Ten will be aligned with a new "Dallas Football Classic" to be played in the venerable Cotton Bowl Stadium (while the actual Cotton Bowl moves over to JerryWorld in Arlington) on New Year's Day. What's new, is that the Big Ten will play a Big 12 opponent after the 2010 and 2012 seasons and a Conference-USA opponents after the 2011 and 2013 seasons. A note: this is the equivalent of the old Motor City/Pizza Bowl slot. 2009 looks to be only the third time this decade that the Big Ten will actually fill the slot, so don't book your tickets for Dallas right away. By my current projections, if this game occurred this year, it would be Northwestern vs. Missouri in a J-School rematch from last season's thrilling Alamo Bowl.
