ES crawl on the Big Green and Big Ten

Around the horn....

ESPN Blogger Adam Rittenberg posts some welcome thoughts on how Dantonio has more quickly than expected, but according to plan, eliminated the SOS - Same Old Spartans - moniker...

Well, the Alamo Bowl will not renew its contract to host the Big Ten's #4 team in favor of hosting the Pac-10's #2 team beginning with next season. That may be a coup for the Pac 10 (up from the Holiday Bowl), but not that great of a loss for the Big Ten. Looks as if the Gator Bowl may be interested to replace the Alamo Bowl, pending discussions with the SEC.

How low can things go for Indiana football? Low enough that they're dissing a 2010 home football game vs Penn State in Bloomington for a $3 million pay day at Fed Ex Field in Washington DC. Home, shmome. It confirms that IU football is screwed for the foreseeable future.

The Bleacher Report chimes in with its Big Ten + ND preview, and predicts a 4th place finish and 10-2/6-2 record for the Big Green, as well as a 10-2 record for Notre Dame. But, with B/R predicting MSU to lose its 2 games in conference, in effect they're predicting the Big Green to upend the Irish in South Bend, as expected.
