Big Ten finally No. 1

For all the slamming the Big Ten gets here in SEC country, I thought I'd post something that defends the conference's honor.

Forbes.com, why Forbes.com did this research instead of SI.com or ESPN.com is beyond me, looked into which schools produced the most professional athletes among the five professional sports leagues (NFL, NBA, major league baseball, NHL and major league soccer).

The top-two schools? Michigan and Ohio State. Michigan climbs to the top of the list for two sports - football and hockey. Don't think LSU, Florida or Tennessee (which also made the top-10) crank out hockey players like Michigan.

Still, this gives me some verbal ammo in debates with zealous SEC fans.
