Big news today as the Big10 released the conference schedules fro 2013-2014. Worth noting: Michigan and Wisconsin will not play at all between 2011-2014. And the Land Grant rivalry is officially DEAD!!

Lots of controversy over the schedules.

Noted that the M/UW match-up is done for 4 consecutive seasons by proponents of the 9 conference game schedules going forward.

I would offer that the schedules that have been released are a spring board to getting to 9 conference games in the new league set-up. What is the propose of releasing these schedules if not for some specific reason. This seems to me to be a very good one.

The conventional wisdom seems to be that we will begin the 9-game schedule in 2015, far enough in advance to not interfere with any OOC games already scheduled.

The AD's and Presidents are in favor of it (less enthusiastic at OSU and Michigan) so it's bound to happen.

Interesting theory that they purposely broke up teams to increase the outcry for it.

I also notice that Sparty won't play Ohio State, Penn State, or Wisconsin in 2013-14. Who thought that was a good idea??

Iowa senior defensive back Willie Lowe, one of the 13 players hospitalized in January with a muscle disorder following workouts, has asked for a release to allow his transfer from the school.

Yup, that's Penn State's cross-divisional rival. Alvarez wanted them bad too but I think the conf wanted to throw PSU a bone and make sure they got a premier game to rival OSU-Michigan

couple months away before Nebraska is officially in the BigTen but it is never too early to talk about how one feels about your new peers...

Programs I hate already:

PSU - whiny little punks who have more philly in their fan base than Pittsburgh. One of the worst CF experiences I've had was visiting Happy Valley. And I'm still angry about 1982.

NW - Ignoring the fact that I think NW is that pesky team that everyone expects you to beat and if you lose to them, something is wrong with your program instead of NW is pretty good... I don't like their fans. Yes, you're at a good school. Yes, you're smart. That doesn't mean you have tradition. And it doesn't mean you know CF. Also, they are the second best school in Chicago despite what they claim.

OSU - I have a feeling they will be Nebraska's new Texas. They will be that mental block for the huskers. Probably unfair to label already, but I can't shake the feeling. The recent problems don't help. Besides, singing "Choking in the Horseshoe" (to the tune of smoking in the boys room) is too much fun.

Teams I'm not sure about:

Iowa- I think this will develop into a great game, but I'm not sure if this goes Nebraska/Colorado or Nebraska/OU. I'm hoping respect develops on both sides.

Wisc - not sure about their fans

Teams I'll want to beat, but respect:

Michigan - I've preached for some time that Neb and Mich have many parallels. A lot of similarities in the program and fans. Nebraska/OU used to have a level of respect. You wanted to beat the other team, but when the game was over, there was respect for what transpired and the traditions of both programs. I think this game has that potential

Sparty - always had a soft spot for sparty. I like the underdog

If OSU, PSU, and Michigan had been put in the same division, I wonder who would've gotten the Huskerz?
