Happy Memorial Day!

It's Memorial Day, and the Big Ten blog will be quiet during the holiday unless there is major breaking news. (Which certainly has happened before.)

Let's remember to use this time to give thanks to those who have served our country in the past and those who continue to do so. We have the freedom to get crazy about college football -- and write about it -- because of their hard work and sacrifices.

The blog will be back in business on Tuesday. Until then, enjoy your family get-togethers, your barbecues or (if you're like me) your "Arrested Development" marathons. Have fun, and stay safe.
