Rittenberg Nails It

You've been bullied for the last three years.

You know how it usually goes.

They call you fat and slow. They say you take off too much time before you show up and fight.

They make fun of your name. It doesn't add up, they say. They tell you to get some help.

They say you don't belong in Pasadena and get ticked when you get invited to all the best bowl games. They mock your tradition, your weather and your region of the country.

They make fun of your coaches, calling them too old or too conservative. They scoff at your schemes. Behind the times, they say.

Just in case you didn't hear it the first time, they call you slow. And fat.

You say nothing. You can't. You know what the recent record looks like.

But today, they say nothing.

Because you, the Big Ten, hit back.
I suggest you read the rest of his article. Where are the talking heads now?
