Ranking B1G teams - Past 10 Seasons

I was curious how the 14 current B1G teams have performed the past ten seasons (04-13). Here's what I found, if anyone else is interested:

Method 1: (Final AP ranking #1= 25pts... #25=1 pt)

OSU: 169
Wisc: 91
PSU: 60
Mich: 54
MSU: 50
Iowa: 43
Neb: 15
Rut: 14
NW: 9
Ill: 6
Mar: 3
Minn: 0
Ind: 0
Pur: 0

Method 2: (Final AP Ranking Top 10= 5pts; Top 25= 3pts; RV= 1pt). In my opinion, this method devalues elite seasons relative to method 1 but gives better resolution towards the bottom of the list.

OSU: 71
Wisc: 48
PSU: 34
Mich: 26
Iowa: 25
MSU: 17
Neb: 15
Rut: 8
NW: 6
Mar: 5
Ill: 4
Minn: 1
Pur: 1
Ind: 0

Somethings that stood out to me:

  • Wisconsin generally doesn't get the credit it deserves.
  • Rutgers might not kick down the door in its first season, but it's closer to a middle-of-the-road B1G team than people seem to be saying.
  • Nebraska is farther down the list than I would have thought.
  • I'm sorry, Indiana.
