I find it interesting that Michigan at the bottom of the conference is still better than the average of the Big 12.

Shook…..Because Nebraska left the Big XII..and WVA joined…the BIG XII slipped further behind. Glad to be in a League that puts an emphasis on Education.

Michigan is only so low because this is a multiyear average, and they had a score of 897 in the 2008-9 season when there was a large exodus of players because of the program transitioning from Lloyd Carr to Rich Rodriguez. Last year their score was a 981, and the year before a 984.
