Honest question:  Does the NCAA mandate that conferences with 12+ member must split into two divisions and that the teams in a division must play all other members within that division every year?  Why should we be forced to play Rutgers, Maryland, Indiana, etc every year and only play Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, etc. only every once in awhile?

Wouldn't it be better for the B1G if they would just scrap the divisions and simply go to a rotational home-home series with all the teams evenly and have each team have a protected 'rival' opponent each year in the final week?  Seems like a simple solution to me.

You can take the top half of the conference teams:  OSU, PSU, Michigan, MSU, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska (they'll get their ish together at some point right?), string them out in a lineup, then place one of the bottom half teams in between each of the top half teams.  Then you just play the rotation, going down the list. You'll play a good team every other week and a meh team every other week so you won't get these murderers row lineup where you'll play three top 15 opponents in consecutive weeks and get all beat up.  Then go back to eight conference games.  So you'll play four 'good' teams and four 'average' teams a year.  I think the B1G went to nine conference games when they added Rutgers and Maryland to help boost the frequency of the opponent rotation on the opposite divisions.  But if we can scrap the divisions then nine conference games won't be necessary anymore.

Then the two best teams will go the the B1G Championship like the way that the Big 12 does now.  Let's be honest, the real B1G Championship game this year was OSU vs Michigan.  Like the previous two years prior was OSU vs PSU.  The conference championship game should be between the best two teams, period.  It shouldn't matter which division they are in or if they already played earlier in the season.

Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy on Modern Family) did his Masters at PSU.  He would be fun.  Personally, I would like to see Lara Spencer.  She'd be great.  KMK is always awesome.  But he's been doing a lot of PSU stuff recently so I kinda doubt they'd bring him back so soon.

Past players other than LaVar and Devin:  Spice Adams and Adam Taliaferro would be fantastic.

Word is that Pitt wanted an extended series commitment, 6 or 8 games.  PSU wanted more variety:  VT, Auburn, WVU, Texas, UGA, etc.  Temple was more than happy to take the two game home-and-home.  So they got it.  Pitt should've taken it and just be happy.  Now they get nothing.  So if Pitt wants to play, their gonna have to take an a la carte single at our place just like, say... Akron.

Clifford's not going anywhere. If Tommy grad transfers then Zembiec will probably stay. If Tommy stays then Zembiec will probably transfer. Does anyone know if Mark Allen or Jonathan Thomas have grad transfer ability? I'd assume they may be option for that.
