Big Tentacles: Nebraska, Michigan, Lou Holtz and...Bruce Pearl?

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

Youth Movement. Nebraska looks to have an offensive line with limited or no starting experience in 2011. (Big Red Today)

Welcome to the Jungle. An Iowa blogger welcomes Nebraska to the Big Ten. Sadly for Nebraska, it's one of the Black Heart Gold Pants crew. (Off Tackle Empire)

Doctor Doctor. Notre Dame plans to give Lou Holtz a genuine honorary doctorate. Now if we can only find a school that will make John Cena an actual  honorary Doctorate of Thuganomics. (Dr. Saturday)

New Low. Six Air Force pilots who took part in a flyover of last year's Ohio State-Iowa game are getting reprimanded for flying too low to the ground. (Dr. Saturday)

Maize Heart White Pants? Rumors are going around than Michigan may be planning to wear white pants sometime during the 2011 season. (Maize n Brew)

BASKETBALL

Highly Evolved? Ohio State's Jon Dieber has gone from a disappointment to one a candidate for the title of "best offensive player in basketball." (Eleven Warriors)

Eye of the Tiger on Painter? Missouri may be looking at Purdue's Matt Painter to replace the recently departed Mike Anderson. (Rock M Nation)

Bold prediction of the day: "Bruce Pearl could return to coach Iowa" in 2012. Personally I think the Mayan Apocalypse has a better chance of happening. (Business Insider)
