I agree with one caveat: so long as whomever wins the Big Ten is competitive with the winners of the other P5. In other words, I would not want Ohio State to be "dragged down" to Michigan's level or something like that, only to have a loss like 2015's Michigan State 0-38 to Alabama.Much as I don’t care for Harbaugh and I definitely have no fondness for U of Mich as a whole, I think all B1G fans outside of OSU would feel it would be better for the conference if Mich was more competitive as they’re realistically the only program than can bring consistent parity to OSU. PSU has been in the conference a quarter century and hasn’t been consistently competitive enough. MSU has had good years mixed with bad. Indy has raised their level of play but will not be an annual contender.
We don’t have anyone in the West who can consistently compete with OSU every year but neither does the East! And I prefer the parity of the West where the #1-3 teams are usually closer matched year to year.
