Merry Christmas from the Big Ten blog

Merry Christmas!

As much as we love talking Big Ten football year-round here at the Big Ten blog, this should probably be a day we spend with our families, at least pretending to be interested in something else. So the blog will take today off for the holiday, and we hope you and yours have a great and safe time.

And don't worry. We'll be back tomorrow with the gift of a regular blog schedule.
