Big Ten Wonk interrupts his hiatus

Big Ten Wonk has broken his summer hiatus to post some numbers about pace of play across major conferences, using only inter-conference games in the calculation. Go read it first.

Obviously, given Indiana's coaching situation, there's nothing here specific to Indiana that's particularly interesting, other than noting that Oklahoma (63.7) played at a significantly slower pace than Indiana (66.4). Last season Indiana actually played at an uncharacteristically fast pace for a Mike Davis team.

The Big Ten continues to play at the slowest pace, while the ACC continues to play at the fastest pace (though not nearly as fast as the season before). Also interesting is that neither Florida or UCLA played fast.

Wisconsin's reputation for slow play appears to be overblown.
