The Big Ten's reputation continues to take a beating in the aftermath, especially in bowls played on or after Jan. 1.
This year didn't help. Ohio State and Penn State were ineligible for the postseason, the conference sent a five-loss team to the Rose Bowl then went 1-4 on New Year's Day after losses by Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Purdue. Northwestern picked up the lone win.
There's a simple, lucrative, risky fix. Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany should make his most proactive move yet.
Add Oklahoma and Texas at all costs. That's a serious move.
