Hasta luego, Big Ten fans

Believe it or not, we're still in the midst of the college football offseason. What offseason? The news cycle has been relentless, especially in Big Ten land.

But alas, we all need to take time off, and I'll be on vacation in Mexico until July 12. While there, I'll have drinks with The Most Interesting Man in the World and ask him for his Big Ten divisions proposal. I've also authorized Jim Delany to expand again during my absence.

Some of you are undoubtedly pulling your hair out at your cubicles, wondering how you'll possibly get through the next few days.

Option 1: You could actually get some work done.

Option 2: You could check the Big Ten blog, which will be active while I'm away. I'll wrap up the Big Ten preseason player rankings -- three names to go, beginning later Thursday morning -- and my excellent blogger colleagues will be filling in with daily lunch links and any news updates.

That's all for now. Vaya con queso.
