Big Ten Fans prepare for their Annual Emasculation

Posted by rtmsf on April 17th, 2007

The 2007 ACC/Big 10 “Challenge” games were released yesterday, much to the dismay of coaches throughout the midwest, who must have been hoping that the contract on this thing had finally expired. In the eight year history of this event, the ACC has gone 8-0 vs. the Big Ten, including a commanding 48-27 lead in head-to-head matchups. Only one Big Ten team has a winning record, Michigan State (4-3); and only two ACC teams have losing records, UNC (3-5) and Miami (0-2). This year all eleven Big Ten teams will compete against all but Miami from the ACC, including the scintillating set-your-Tivo-now Wake Forest vs. Iowa game on the first night. Not that it matters – who are we kidding? The ACC could send out its third-place intramural squads and still go 6-5 in this thing. Enjoy.
