Big Tentacles: John Clay, Northwestern, Iowa, and...more expansion?

 (Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big 10 and the teams it not-so-secretly covets.) 
 
Come aboard, we're expecting you. Looking at the new-found appreciation for Wisconsin head football coach Bret Bielema. (Bucky's 5th Quarter)

Stay for just a little bit longer. Wisconsin junior running back John Clay should forgo the 2011 NFL Draft and return for his senior season. Because Badger great Ron Dayne says so. (College Football Talk)

Hello, I must be going. Northwestern running back Arby Fields is leaving the football program.  (The Sports Bank)

 The Last Waltz. Future Big Ten member Nebraska will be facing longtime rival Oklahoma in the final Big 12 Championship Game. (Rivals.com)

It was a very good year...for QB's. 2010 will go down as one of the best years for Big Ten quarterbacks. (Off Tackle Empire)

 November Pain. The idea of Iowa improving throughout the season seems to be losing steam in recent Novembers. (Black Heart Gold Pants)

Orange vs. Green. The Syracuse Orange are reportedly set to meet the Tulane Green Wave in 2011 and possibly (Big East expansion permitting) 2012. (Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician)

Not done yet? Michigan athletic director David Brandon suggests that further expansion of the Big Ten is still on the table, and will be discussed at a meeting of conference presidents and chancellors this month. (College Football Talk)
