Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July from the Big Ten blog!

We hope you enjoy our final national holiday before football season begins. The blog will have the day off today, barring any major breaking news. We'll be back tomorrow with a limited posting schedule.

Have fun on the holiday, and be safe -- especially around fireworks. Don't be like these guys. Be like this guy.

Enjoy America's birthday, and we'll talk to you soon.
