The ACC, as always, has the advantage two days into the Big 10/ACC Challenge. I'm not really sure how to cover five games I didn't watch last night, but rest assured that the ACC won three of them, which has to be considered a pretty solid night for the Big 10, which is too bad. The Atlantic Coast has all sorts of things going for it, like beaches and cities. The Big 10 is pretty much the best thing about the Midwest, except for Chicago and the excellent gas mileage the lack of hills provides.
One of the wins last night for the Big 10: Northwestern over Miami. As many of you know, Northwestern has turned out such luminaries as the handsomest sports blogger in the world, Dan Shanoff, SI's Stew Mandel, and (rumored) a hot girl sometime last decade. Miami's alumni include Michael Irvin, 15% of everyone in the NFL, and wealthy South Beach girls with boob jobs. Northwestern's students face ice and snow half the school year; the U's student body is perpetually tan.
In other words, this is the first time in the history of everything that Northwestern has bested Miami at anything. Well, besides SAT scores. As if those mattered. If I had my choice between a girl who can read and Miami's Glam Rock Bikini Fashion Show (pictured)… ummm, I'm not even going to finish that sentence.
