The numbers don't lie. The Big Ten is in bad shape.
Troubling trends in recruiting and some reluctance by schools to invest the way it's done in the Southeastern Conference have been dragging down Big Ten football in recent years. This season looks as if it could be rock bottom.
The gory details through three weeks:

Moderate Syrian rebels, once they are made battle-ready by a U. S.-led coalition, may be asked to help restore the border between Syria and Iraq that Islamic State group militants have effectively wiped out, the top American military official said Thursday.
Army Gen. Martin Dempsey cautioned, however, that it may be a year before the Syrian rebel force that President Barack Obama calls a key element of his strategy for destroying the Islamic State group is ready for action.
"We think if we can restore the border, it goes a long way to beginning to put the kind of pressure on ISIL that will lead to its ultimate defeat," Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, using a common acronym for the group that U.
Gov. Chris Christie says he's growing tired of the legislative committee investigating politically motivated lane closures near the George Washington Bridge last year.
Speaking at a news conference Thursday in Trenton, Christie blasted the Democrat-controlled committee — including its co-chairman Assemblyman John Wisniewski — for leaking documents to the media.
"If they can't run their own ship, they shouldn't be running an investigation," he told reporters, accusing the committee's Democratic members of being more interested in getting their names in the newspapers and on television than finding the truth.
An inmate who was recaptured after escaping from the state prison is facing new charges.
Twenty-five-year-old Keurys Pena appeared in Kent County District Court on a charge of escape from correctional institutions. He did not enter a plea.
The charge carries a penalty of up to three years in prison.
Authorities say Pena was on a work detail at the Adult Correctional Institutions on Monday when he escaped.
He was found walking on a street in Providence two days later.
Pena is serving a four-and-a-half-year term for breaking and entering.
In another category, child poverty dropped by more than 5 percentage points, but a University of New Hampshire researcher said it's hard to read anything to that number because the year before, the rate jumped by 6.8 percent.
Beth Mattingly, director of research on vulnerable families and the university's Carsey School of Public Policy, said the leap above 15.5 percent followed by this year's drop to 10.2 percent of children living in poverty suggests a statistical hiccup.
"The decline in our poverty rate is a positive sign that New Hampshire's economy continues to move in the right direction, but we know there are still those struggling to make ends meet and we need to continue working together to help innovative businesses create jobs, expand middle class opportunity and keep our economy moving forward," she said.
Kentucky players are determined to keep their edge during their short break.
The Wildcats (2-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) have a bye this week before hosting Vanderbilt on Sept. 27. They want to build on what worked in the triple-overtime loss at Florida with an emphasis on finishing things against the Commodores, and ending a 17-game conference losing streak dating back to the 2011 season.
Kentucky coach Mark Stoops likes how players have moved on from the emotional 36-30 defeat with energetic practices this week.
