Can't agree with that. It's not always the prettiest to watch, but they're almost always right in the mix in basketball.
I was brought up on the Big Ten (basketball and football). It's not the Big Ten isn't tough, they're over rated based on the pre-season expectations (particularly in the last 15 years or so). That goes to Bowl games and the Final Four. I do think Nebraska brings a bit of swagger to the football side.
