They're not a very good team this season, and would be battling for 2nd or 3rd in their division in any normal year.
The next two years could determine if the Big Ten is finally going to make it a respectable conference once again. With Ohio State and Penn State in one division and Michigan and Nebraska in the other, it could make for some entertaining matchups in the B1G Championship. Add in that Wisconsin is usually a pretty good team and will contend if this year's not a fluke...and depending on how many juniors leave Michigan State after this season, you're looking at half the conference competing for the championship any given year.
Things are definitely looking up for the Big Ten any way you slice it. Though, when you're at the bottom, you've only got one direction to go.
