The Big 10 didn’t have a good bowl season.

The conference, which is the best conference in all of college sports, finished the bowl season with a 4-5 record, and that’s simply not good enough. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The only four teams to get wins were Michigan State, Iowa, Penn State and Minnesota. The MSU game doesn’t matter, but the other three wins are solid.

However, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan all losing major bowl games just isn’t acceptable. We don’t need to be perfect every year, but we need to be above .500.

The B1G simply can’t have poor bowl performances like this one.

Look, the Big 10 is the most elite conference in all of college athletics. That’s the reality of the situation. If we want to maintain that status, we can’t go 4-5 in bowl season.

We just can’t do it. Teams like Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin simply have to win. I’d add in Michigan, but we all know they can’t beat anybody with a pulse.

We need to get much better. I’m not sure how we get there, but it needs to happen. Hopefully, this is just a one-off season, and we’re back to dominating again next year.
