SBNation Blogs’ All-Decade Big Ten Team

Who were the Big Ten’s best during the 2010s?

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Wisconsin Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

After BTN put out its All-Decade teams for football and basketball earlier this summer, it seemed like a fun idea to put our own together. As such, we did a poll of SBNation writers and compiled our own list.

Each voter ended up picking from the following categories:

  • Big Ten Player of the Decade
  • Big Ten Coach of the Decade
  • First, Second, and Third Teams All-Decade
  • Game of the Decade
  • Biggest Surprise of the Decade
  • Hilarious Moment of the Decade

But before we jump into the results, here’s your list of voters and thank you to all of them for helping out with this process:

  • Thomas Beindit, BTPowerhouse
  • Anthony Broome, Maize N’ Brew
  • Noah Coffman, Inside NU
  • Drew Hamm, Bucky’s 5th Quarter
  • Tristen Kissack, The Champaign Room
  • Travis Miller, Hammer N’ Rails
  • David White, On The Banks

So, let’s jump into it.
