Big Tentacles: Jim Tressel, Michigan State, Bo Pelini, and more.

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

We Love You. Bobby Knight, Rich Rodriguez, and Brady Hoke are standing behind Jim Tressel. (Dr. Saturday)

Let's make the best of the situation. Who in the Big Ten will benefit the most from Tressel and the "Tat Five's" suspensions? Michigan State is the only Big Ten team the Buckeyes will face during the Terrelle Pryor and company's suspension. Then the player's return just in time to meet the Big Ten's new best friend, Nebraska. Illinois is the first of the Buckeye's "Leaders" division-mates to step up to the plate. (Lake the Posts)

Two Michigan State football players walk into a bar. No, this one doesn't end well. Max Bullough and  Brian Linthicum were arrested for "underage possession of alcohol" (Bullough), "assault in the third degree" (Linthicum), and "eluding officers" (both). (

A prickly relationship. Nebraska head football coach Bo Pelini hasn't too keen dealing with the media in the past, but he seemed to be cordial during his spring practice press conference. (Corn Nation

Keeping it simple. Nebraska plans to simplify its offense in 2011. (

Jersey Orange.  Syracuse agrees to play ten additional games in the Meadowlands Stadium between 2019 and 2038, along with the four already scheduled games the Orange are to play there.  (


Let's Stay Together. Minnesota is working on a contract extension with head men's basketball coach Tubby Smith. (ESPN)
