Remember when Michigan and Ohio State were the Big Ten's big two? Well, that old nickname could apply to the 2004 Big Ten recruiting race as the Wolverines and Buckeyes both signed top 10 classes. Actually, the rest of the conference also signed pretty good groups. No one in the Big Ten recruited what could be considered a deficient class. Even Northwestern and Indiana did better than usual. All 11 Big Ten teams will end up in my top 55 teams. No head coaching changes really helped everyone in the conference put together a solid group.
