Big Ten Numbers

The Big Ten hasn’t been that for a while. The ten became 12 when Penn State and Nebraska came on board. But at least they were still Big. Now the 10 are 14 with the addition of Rutgers and Maryland – not so big.

Five Ohio State football players have been suspended for the first 5 games of next season but not for the upcoming Sugar Bowl.  Their offense was to trade championship rings and trinkets for tattoos.

It was tough to decide which target to fire a cartoon at.

It was a tough call, but I went with NCAA greed and hypocrisy number 2.
