I understand where you are coming from. My first article that I wrote for SQ was about how last season was going to be the road to redemption for the Big Ten, and for the most part, I believe they took a big step. However, I still think the Big Ten is weaker than the SEC, Pac 12, and Big 12 from top to bottom. With coaching changes at Nebraska and Michigan, could the Big Ten begin to show that they are stronger than some of those conferences? Sure, but that might be two or three years down the road. Purdue, Indiana, Iowa, Northwestern, Penn State, and Michigan all had disappointing seasons last year. The top tier teams in the Big Ten had great seasons, probably one of the best in the past 10 years, but the bottom half of the Big Ten needs to pick it up. To your point, I truly hope the Big Ten become the strongest conference but right now it is a super-top-heavy conference with really weak bottom tier teams.

Oregon came out a little sluggish in the first quarter, settling for field goals, but the Duck defense helped them out by completely shutting down the Arizona offense. Marcus Mariota continued to show why he is a front-runner for the Heisman trophy. Personally, I think Mariota deserves it, unless Melvin Gordon runs for 400 yards against the Buckeyes on Saturday.
Depending on how Alabama fares against Missouri, the Ducks may snag the #1 seed for the college football playoff. They definitely played like a championship team tonight.
