Today, the Big Ten Conference officially welcomes the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. I thought I would welcome them too:
Big 10 recommends hockey league – The Collegian
Since the announcement that Penn State would sponsor varsity hockey after Terry Pegula donated $88 million to start the program, it was anticipated that the Big Ten would eventually form a hockey conference. That eventuality appears as though it will be sooner than later. Yesterday, the Big [...]
This afternoon, the Big Ten Conference revealed their new logo and the names of the divisions. The Leaders division includes Penn State, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin and Ohio State. The Legends division includes Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska and Northwestern.
There are a whole lot of new trophies too and they all have hyphenated names. [...]
The Big Ten Conference new divisions don’t have names yet and it is not a reach to think they will be named the Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler divisions. That is only acceptable to me Ohio State is in the Bo division and Michigan is in the Woody division.
Of course there is something to [...]

I would like to see geography-based divisions, mostly so Penn State would have fewer chances of playing early games in the Central Time Zone. So, here is what it should look [...]
Rather than hold its football championship game in a venue that promotes the conference’s appealing aspect of playing outdoors in all weather, the Big Ten will be holding its championship game indoors at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Just a shameful decision by the Big Ten to cave into the “let’s not let wheather determine [...]
I hope you didn’t get too excited about Penn State’s 2011 home schedule with Alabama, Ohio State, Iowa and Wisconsin because it may look very different.
Yesterday, friend to this blog Kevin McGuire wrote an Examiner.com post extolling the virtues of the Big Ten hosting its football championship at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. I disagree with him and since he’s a good guy, I’ll try to it it respectfully.
Are you kidding? Playing the Big Ten championship game indoors would [...]
