I've heard this argument a lot especially in college football conversations here on FanNation.  Honestly, this argument is really starting to annoy me.  It's incredibly frustrating to hear people continuously say these things. I, of course, am talking about Conferences. 

I especially these "arguments" when people are talking about the Big 10.  Their main thing is that whenever a Big 10 team has any success it's because they're in a weak conference.  Whether it be Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn State or even Illinois..it's all because the Big 10 is a weak conference.  Are you people kidding me?  This is one of the child like arguments that a few people here on FN seem to enjoy using.  I have one major problem with people saying this.  

What on earth are the good Big 10 teams supposed to do?  Allow me to answer that...nothing.  Conference realignment is a relatively difficult thing to pull off.  It just doesn't make sense for people to talk about something a team has no control about, their conference.  The teams in your conference are the teams in your conference..there's not a thing anyone can do about it..like it or not.  What do all of you Big 10 haters out there want the good Big 10 coaches to do about it?  Should they pull Tim "Punky" Brewster and Pat Fitzgerald off to the side on Big 10 media day.and tell them to pick up the slack..they're bringing the conference down?  No! That makes no sense whatsoever.  

I'm ok with criticizing a teams non-conference schedule.  That's something that you can control.  But, people to talk about a team's conference and say that's the reason they shouldn't be in a position to win a National Title is just idiocy and a lack of knowledge in my opinion.  

A team's conference is a lot like your family.  You may not like having all of them there but, you have to deal with them like it or not.  That's the way conference's are too.  Just because you have a crazy uncle doesn't mean he's not part of your family..does it?  

What are your thoughts?
