The Big Ten's Opportunity For Respect

The Big Ten Football conference can gain some national respect if they chalk up some victories in a few marquee non-conference games this season. And it all starts with Wisconsin as the lead off batter, when they clash against LSU on August 30th at Camp Randall Stadium.

A victory for Wisconsin in this matchup will not only put the entire nation on notice about this year's Badgers team, it will also send a resounding roar across the football landscape that maybe--just maybe--the Big Ten Football Conference is back.

Gregory's Early Top Ten Ranking

Nebraska defensive end, Randy Gregory, galvanized the Big Ten Conference, and plenty in Lincoln last season. The junior from Jacksonville Florida, showcased a rare versatility that enabled him to lead the conference in sacks (10.5), as he forcefully ate opposing quarterback's lunch on a weekly basis.

With less than 100 days until college football begins, the talented Husker, finds himself in a unique group for the 2015 NFL draft, according to some early draft Big Boards.
