Who is the all time leading scorer in big ten history?

Big Ten men's record held by Calbert Cheaney of Indiana with 2613 points.

Kelly Mazzante of Penn State holds the all-time scoring record (male or female) with 2,919 points. This topic always seems to be popping up. Male vs. female scoring leaders in college basketball. My feeling is that the records should be separate since the degree of difficulty is much easier for the women hoopsters given the fact that they play with a smaller ball yet the rim size remains the same. I agree that the reason for a smaller ball is that women's hands are usually smaller, but they are still aiming at a larger target. An easy fix would be to install a smaller rim for the women's games to ensure the same degree of difficulty as the men. It would take two maintenance workers 15 minutes to bolt in a smaller rim before the women's games. It just seems to make sense to me. Mazzante was a great player at Penn State but I have doubts that she would have scored 2900 points using a smaller rim. Just my opinion.

Why doesnt the Big Ten Conference have a Championship Game like the other big Conferences in College Football?

The Big 10 conference does not have a title game due to there being only 11 teams. On an interesting note the Ohio State/Michigan game has determined the champion between themselves a total of 23 times. The game has also affected the outcome of the Big Ten championship an additional 24 times.

Has the Big Ten or the ACC won more national college football championships?

The Big Ten(11) has more NC's than the ACC * It depends on who you ask, but a rough idea would be this: counting the AP from 1936 to present, the UPI from 1950 to 1995, and CNN/USA TODAY/ESPN from 1996 to present: Big8/12 - 14, SEC - 14, Big10 - 13, Pac10 - 9, and ACC - 5. This answer is close, but not guaranteed.....just a quick count for a rough idea of conference strengths.

Why did Nebraska join the Big Ten?

This is a complex answer to the question you asked. There has been bad relations between the Big XII and Nebraska ever since Texas has joined the Big XII. A lot of this has to do with the fact that the Big XII does not evenly dispurse their income amongst chartered schools and the move of the conference headquarters from Kansas City to Dallas. The way money is dispursed in the Big XII Conference is extremely unbalanced with Texas by far getting the most revenues. The Big Ten Conference dispurse income from TV contracts, bowl games, and other contributions equally among Big Ten chartered schools. The Big Ten has an annual income of nearly $170 million more then the Big XII, which means by Nebraska joining the Big Ten they will instantly be receiving nearly $14 million more then if they were in the Big XII not to mention now be part of a national television station, the Big Ten Network. As with most big changes in conferences, the athletic side revolves around football. Nebraska will now be in a more well-balanced football conference and "making" more money. The Big Ten is also more widely recgonized as being a superior academic conference in relation to the Big XII

No matter how you look at it, for the Nebraska community this is a win/win situation both athletically and academically. Of course you will lose natural rivals they might have had with some teams, however, the Big Ten is competitive enough on a wide basis throughout all athletics, they will soo, much like Penn State has, develop new rivalries within conference. There were several other factors I am sure, but these are just a few of the big reasons that might have factored into their decision
