B1G (obviously) only cares about money. We are still a marquee draw, and infinitely bigger name than inbred iowa, thus, we play the other marquee names. The conference sells these matchups, and nobody’s buying iowa vs any of them.That’s rich having the trolls from Iowa comparing strength of schedule. Pick damn near any year and compare their crossover games in conference to ours. Look at the 2024 schedules … we draw Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State; they draw Rutgers, Maryland and Indiana. Someone please explain the level playing field in this dumpster fire of a conference.
Even at our lowest point in half a century, those with two nickels to rub together prefer our product over theirs.
