It’s time for my final regular season Big Ten Player Rankings. This week, Le’Veon Bell and Jordan Hill reenter the list following jaw-dropping individual performances. See all the latest changes in this post. Remember, this feature ranks the Big Ten’s top six offensive and defensive players. So, consider offense the Legends Division and the defense the Leaders Division, or vice versa.
In the wake of Wisconsin’s lopsided loss at the hands of Florida, I urged caution. It was early. Florida is really good, and they were playing at home. Surely, it wouldn’t be long before Bo Ryan had his team playing well enough to put any fears about the Badgers missing the NCAA Tournament to rest.

This is the final edition of the 2012 Big Ten power rankings. And it’s pretty clear who the two best teams in the Big Ten are: Ohio State and Nebraska. Alas, they can’t meet in the conference title game, as the Buckeyes are on probation. But Ohio State finished 12-0, including a 63-38 win over the Cornhuskers in Columbus earlier this season. So, the Buckeyes must be best, right?
