They're either solid colored ties or my favorite tie which is black with thin diagonal stripes that are like 4 inches apart.

There are bright spots, sure. NW's grittiness given their talent-gap, Michigan State's defense, Wisconsin's offensive line..maybe a few others.
Overall, yeah, the B1G sucks complete balls. Illinois, Iowa, Minnisota, Indiana, Purdue, are proverbially sucking wang year after year, then you have the 'always dissapoints' of M*chigan, PSU, Wisconsin & Nebraska, who try hard each year to make that leap to the next-level, but fall short. Every last one of them fails to impress, save Ohio State.
They've always had their respective foci, it's just a lot of teams are down in the Big 10 right now. Teams that used to be good and knocking on great every year like Michigan, PSU, Wisconsin, Nebraska as you mentioned, plus MSU have glaring holes or in the case of PSU will be down a few more years because of sanctions. Northwestern is a nice up and comer but they can't make the conference by themselves with Ohio State.
