• It’s a bronze pig trophy named Floyd of Rosedale, and you only get it if you win the Iowa-Minnesota game.

I think it’s appropriate to have a moment of silence for the reputation of Big Ten football, which was critically wounded last week around the time Michigan was committing its sixth turnover in a loss to that Team From South Bend Which Shall Not Be Named. Or maybe it was when Iowa was expertly giving up nine points in the last 45 seconds to hand a victory to the Central Michigan Chippewas. Or perhaps when Illinois was watching Louisiana Tech celebrate its seventh touchdown in Champaign. Or—

Anyway, like I said: silence is golden.
