    It has happened again. The bad thing is that more than one thing that shouldn’t happen at all has happened again.  
    The first repeat offense is the annual egg laid by the Big Ten in the bowl games. By early evening Monday, only Michigan State had won in five games in which the conference teams participated during the day with only Wisconsin still to finish in the Rose Bowl as I write this.  
    Before today, Iowa and Northwestern lost while Illinois and Purdue won and Michigan will play later in the week.
