Big Tentacles: Michigan State, Michigan, Bowl swag, and..."Gary Ferentz?"

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big 10 and the teams it not-so-secretly covets.) 

Always look on the bright side of life. Michigan State tries to get something positive out of getting snubbed by the Sugar Bowl. (The Detroit News)

Not going anywhere. Despite both being look upon as possible head coaching candidates at other schools, Wisconsin offense coordinator Paul Chryst and defense coordinator Dave Doeren look like they're staying put in Madison. (Bucky's 5th Quarter)

That uneasy feeling. Michigan struggles with athletic director Dave Brandon's slow as molasses evaluation of whether head football coach Rich Rodriguez keeps his job. (The Detroit News)

Oh, presents! A look at the gift swag players can expect at the various bowl games featuring Big Ten schools. I'm sure Illinois players are going to be thrilled at the belt buckle from the Texas Bowl. (ESPN)

Who are you? In a teleconference call for the Insight Bowl, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz was referred to at "Gary Ferentz." (Black Heart Gold Pants)

A few small repairs. Off Tackle Empire suggests the Big Ten rearrange the conference schedule to avoid the dearth of meaningful games in some weeks. (Off Tackle Empire)
