In response to a very boring year and Northwestern being relevant for the Rose Bowl, Big Ten Football has announced a name change for their Leaders and Legends Divisions: the Lousy and Lackluster Divisions.
“It’s not really a big deal,” said Stalberg. “It’s not like I’m going to re-name the team or move them out to Sweden so I can practice against them in my backyard. Although now that I’ve said that out-loud, it does sound pretty sweet.”
In the wake of learning that its fabled football program will be ineligible to play in any bowl game next year, Ohio State University’s athletic department has made an offer of concessions to the NCAA. In a statement released Friday, OSU Athletic Director Gene Smith said that the school is offering the NCAA old memorabilia and the "The" before its name as a means for reinstatement.
"Watching my kids grow up, having dinner every night with my beautiful wife ... at the end of the day, just really underwhelming," said the new Ohio State coach, who left Florida abruptly after the 2009 season.
At the beginning of the year, Ohio State was the red-headed step child of the Big Ten and perhaps of all college football, taking beatings in the pocketbook, the press, as well as on the field.

"And there's no way we're changing it, no matter how stupid even our most die-hard supporters believe it to be."
Fewer than two weeks after he and four teammates were suspended five games next season for trading Ohio State memorabilia for cash and discounted tattoos, QB Terrelle Pryor immediately sold the 2011 Sugar Bowl MVP trophy he won Tuesday night for a "2011 Sugar Bowl MVP" tattoo at a French Quarter parlor.
