The best basketball teams in the world come from the Midwest.
They come from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.
The best football teams come from Oklahoma and Texas.
They don’t come from Missouri.
The Tigers have been playing for four decades in the Southeastern Conference.
They have won four national titles, two in the past five years.
Their current head coach, Matt Rhule, was hired as the Tigers head coach in 2012.
He was the head coach of the Texas Longhorns for the last two years.
The Texas football program has had success under him, winning eight consecutive conference titles from 2005-11.
Rhule was hired at Michigan to replace Mark Dantonio, who left the Wolverines after just three years.
Michigan State went 9-6 in his final year as the Spartans head coach.
Rhul came in with a solid track record in coaching, winning at least two conference titles every season from 2010-14.
The Spartans lost three straight games in 2013 and 2014.
The next year, the Spartans went 6-6.
The following year, they won five straight games and finished 6-5.
It was a rough year for Michigan State.
It went 7-6 the following year and had its worst regular season in years, going 6-8 overall and 9-4 in the Big Ten.
In 2016, Michigan State was 12-2 and led the Big 12.
That was the year they won the Big East.
The Tigers went 8-6 overall and 5-7 in the ACC.
This was the season that Rhule took over for Bo Pelini, who was fired following the 2015 season.
The Wolverines finished 8-5, lost to Notre Dame in the Orange Bowl, lost at Notre Dame again in the Fiesta Bowl and lost at Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl.
After this season, the Wolverils went 5-11 and lost to Oklahoma State in Lincoln.
They also lost to Kentucky in the Sugar Bowl, losing to Kentucky again in Columbus, Ohio.
This season, they lost to Clemson in the Clemson Bowl.
In 2017, they beat Notre Dame and lost the ACC title game to the Tigers.
The last time they lost in Columbus was in 2019.
The year before that, they were 6-7 and lost in the BCS title game against the Spartans.
After losing to the Buckeyes in the National Championship Game, the last time Michigan State lost to Ohio State was in 2018.
The program is 6-9, and they had an 8-4 record the previous two seasons, including losing to Nebraska in the Rose Bowl.
The Big Ten has the most teams in Big Ten history.
The only team that doesn’t have an appearance in the championship game of the league is Wisconsin, which has two teams in that category.
Michigan and Ohio State are the only teams in college football history that have never won a Big Ten championship.
Michigan was the first team to lose a Big 10 championship game, but it wasn’t the first.
The Buckeyes beat Michigan in the 1960 Sugar Bowl in the first of five straight losses.
The team that beat Michigan did it twice more.
The third time was the 1960 Cotton Bowl, and Ohio was in the other.
In the last meeting, Michigan lost in a 35-31 win.

Michigan lost to Wisconsin in the 2021 Rose Bowl and Ohio in the 2022 Cotton Bowl in consecutive years.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
The first two seasons of the Michigan football program were very bad.
The fans were booing, the coach was fired, the players were unhappy, and things were bad for the fans and the players.
Then in 2018, the team went 8.5-5 and won the conference title.
The 2019 season was better.
It started with a big win over Northwestern in the second round of the Big Dance.
Then they went 5.5 at Michigan Stadium and won their third consecutive Big Ten title.
Then the fans went wild and the team came in at 6-4 and won four straight games.
Then Michigan went 6.5 and lost four of five to finish at 6.7.
The 2018 season was even better, going 8-3.
Then Ohio went to the Rose and won a bowl game.
That season, Ohio won three straight to finish with a 6-3 record.
Then came the 2019 season.
That year, Ohio went 5.-10 and went to bowl game four times.
It got to the point where the Buchers fans weren’t happy with the fans.
The players were too.
They were unhappy with the coach.
And then the players did something they haven’t done in a long time.
They did something nobody did before.
They started getting physical with the coaches.
The coaches didn’t want
