What a fun New Year's Day! 2015 already looks like a very promising year.

Big Ten fans had to listen to their conference be ridiculed for a full season while the SEC, particularly the West Division, was glorified to the point of nausea. Bowl season has toppled the SEC West from their heights while the Big Ten's bowl season has vindicated the conference to a point.

New Year's Day was an incredible day for the Big Ten. Wisconsin beat Auburn. Michigan State looked done against Baylor, but then fought back and earned a one-point victory over a team that Bear coach Art Briles was sure should have been in the playoff.

Then there was Ohio State, then team that was certainly DOOMED against juggernaut Alabama.

I'm not the greatest at tooting my own horn, but I really did expect Ohio State to beat Alabama. In fact, I said so publicly. So there.
