Happy Thanksgiving from the Big Ten blog

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Year 2 has been tremendous for the Big Ten blog, and I'm very thankful for all of your continued interest.

One quick programming note: Due to the holiday, my weekly Big Ten chat won't be taking place this afternoon. We'll pick things up a week from now (Dec. 3) at 4 p.m. ET. Looking forward to chatting with you then!

Go ahead and gorge yourself today. You've earned it. I'll be back with you Friday, as we get ready for Illinois-Cincinnati (ABC, noon ET).
