Early Break: Has the B1G started to level out in terms of strength of divisions?

  • The past years, the East was a beast—Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan, and Michigan State all beat up on each other, and the division was perceived not only as the best in the conference—but one of the best in the nation.
  • Urban Meyer is now gone at Ohio State, Michigan State has no QB, Penn State has lost star power the past 2 years in Barkley/McSorley, and Michigan is good but not great. Meanwhile, Minnesota and Nebraska are on the uptick in the West, and Nebraska/Wisconsin/Northwestern all have exciting young QBs, and Purdue/Iowa still have capable offense/teams
