Big Ten Football doesn't suck as much your conference does October 01, 2007 | 02:03 PM Ohio State is #4. Wisconsin is #5. Purdue is #23. I'm not so stupid as to not recognize that this is less about us being great and more about other teams sucking. However, my team's don't suck more than your conference's teams!

McCain tells lies about Hurricane Katrina

On the third anniversary of the deadliest hurricane in American history, it’s appropriate to remember the 1,800 people who lost their lives in the storm, the countless residents of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast who lost their homes, and the promise made to the victims that the negligence and disorganization displayed by the Bush administration would never happen again.
