Addition of Nebraska, Big Ten title game perfect situation for Badgers

first_imgDon’t you hate waiting?If you’re like me, and working a soul-crushing summer job with hours only a fascist would love, then you can’t wait for fall semester to begin. And once school begins, it’s a three-month wait-a-thon until said semester is finally over. All you young’uns are either mentally crossing off the days until you turn 21 and finally get that fishbowl at Wando’s you’ve heard so much about, or lying about the fact you’re mentally crossing off the days until you turn 21.There’s a lot of waiting involved when you’re a student here at Wisconsin. But let’s add one more thing to be anxious for: An annual Big Ten title game in football.See, in the over 100-year history of the conference, the Big Ten champion has received that honor due to regular season performance. When Penn State entered the fold 20 years ago, any thoughts of a title game died with the accuracy of the “Big Ten” moniker.But as Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany sat on his couch last Dec. 5 and noticed almost 18 million people tuned in to see Alabama take on Florida, while 12 million watched Nebraska play Texas in the SEC and Big 12 title games, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back: The Big Ten needed a title game too*.*I’m using this as a nod to Sports Illustrated columnist Joe Posnanski’s “Posterisks.” Yes, I realize a lot of Delany’s motive to expand the conference was to further the reach of the cash cow Big Ten Network. But if that was really the worry, the Big Ten wouldn’t have been so quick to jump on Nebraska and its population of 1.8 million, and would have tried to expand east with Pitt, Rutgers or Syracuse. A conference title game was the real motive in this move.Arguments have long been made about whether the nation’s oldest conference needed a 12th member so they could stage a revenue/viewer-generating championship bout. The Big Ten’s 21 BCS bowl appearances and nine at-large bids (both tops in college football) would say no. The fact that Big Ten football becomes irrelevant while its friends down south stage flashy title games evidently outweighs the former argument.So here’s the abbreviated version of events: Last December, the Big Ten announces it will pursue expansion. The Pac-10 and SEC respond similarly, threatening the existence of the Big 12 and Big East. By mid-June, the Big Ten and Big 12 needed to heavily consider trading names, and in the end, Texas was the tease at the party who flirted with everybody, but went home with nobody.The University of Nebraska became the Big Ten’s 12th member in June and is set to compete in athletics for the 2011-2012 season. Delany is pleased; UW Athletic Director Barry Alvarez is happy as well. Fans of Badger football should be, too.See, conference title games are tricky things. If you’re Florida in 2009, they can mean the difference between the BCS championship game and the Sugar Bowl. Or if you’re Wisconsin in 2006, it could mean the difference between the Rose Bowl and the Capital One Bowl.UW’s 2006 football team set program highs with 11 regular season wins and a 12-1 overall record, the only loss coming at the hands of Michigan. Due to BCS rankings, the Wolverines earned a BCS bowl bid, while the Badgers were left out of the picture because a conference can only send two teams to BCS games (Ohio State played in the national title game that year). At season’s end, Wisconsin was one of just five FBS teams to win at least 12 games. A conference title game in that season — depending on how divisions were aligned — gives UW a shot at Ohio State, and a chance to get to a BCS bowl and hurdle UM in the BCS standings.Or, if you’re the Buckeyes in that scenario, it’s one more hurdle to overcome en route to a possible BCS title game. A win — as expected — gets you there. A loss, well, that could ruin everything, which is why Texas fans were dumping their trunks in that game against Nebraska last year.But let’s look at it from the Badger perspective. As much as Wisconsin has improved since Barry took the team to a Rose Bowl in 1994, the program’s success essentially began with Alvarez. UW has been fighting to reach that top tier in the Big Ten hierarchy, but still hasn’t made the leap. Wisconsin will probably never attract the same level of recruits Michigan or Ohio State or even Penn State get year in and year out. Big Ten titles are dreamt of in Madison, but not expected every season.Let’s face it; Wisconsin is not an elite football program. A Rose Bowl berth this season — which is very doable in my eyes — would be a great step toward becoming part of the preseason Big Ten champion talk on an annual basis.That being said, a championship game gives the (typically) underdog Badgers a chance to swoop in and claim a title more often than it would in the current format. Sure, UW will likely have to deal with fighting Iowa and Nebraska for the division crown, but worrying about two other teams is better than worrying about 10.A conference title game might only offer a chance, an opportunity. But that’s all the 2006 team would have wanted.Adam is a senior majoring in journalism. Think expansion will play in Wisconsin’s favor? Excited about the Badgers’ chances this year?
