LeBron James is heading home to Cleveland to play for the Cavaliers. This will go down as the biggest decision of the 2014 sports year. This got us thinking, what were the biggest decisions made in the Big Ten this past year? Here is a list of our top Big Ten decisions of the past year.

The Big Ten led the nation in men’s basketball attendance for the 38th consecutive season, according to figures recently released by the NCAA. The Big Ten set a conference record with an average attendance of 13,534 per game, including regular season home games and all six sessions of the Big Ten tourney, for a total of 2,896,322 patrons, the 22nd straight year the conference eclipsed the two-million mark.
