Dantonio suspends 8 Spartans, decides that "Gangs of East Lansing" isn't a film he wants to see

Wow. Mark Dantonio has a rep of coddling and inviting thugs to his program (email me for the Mark Ingram story), but who knew that a disappointing 6-6 season would inspire the players to act out like that.

It's been a busy day in the SEC, as the eight non-BCS teams have been jockeying for bowl assignments. The biggest Big Ten related news is that it is being reported by multiple sources that Auburn will become the first team from the SEC West to be selected by the Outback Bowl. The same reports have indicated that they'll be matched against Wisconsin. As of this moment, it appears that the only SEC question is whether Georgia or Kentucky will go to the Music City Bowl (with the other headed to the Independence Bowl). I expect the Music City to choose Georgia over a third trip from Kentucky in four years. There are also rumbles that the Gator is trying to get Florida State to match with West Virginia as a last send off to Bobby Bowden. They need to get all of the ACC teams with winning records to sign off on that. I don't know that it will happen. If it does, it may mean that Northwestern will face Miami instead of Clemson in the Champs Bowl. Too early to say on that one. Projected Big Ten Bowls: Rose: Ohio State v. Oregon Fiesta: Iowa v. Boise State Capital One: Penn State v. LSU Outback: Wisconsin v. Auburn Champs: Northwestern v. Clemson Alamo: Michigan State v. Oklahoma Insight: Minnesota v. Missouri And other modified projections: Chick-Fil-A: Virginia Tech v. Tennessee Liberty: Arkansas v. Houston Music City: Georgia v. Boston College Indicates reports of final decision made.

"Better Know a Blogger" Allows Me To Ramble On About TRE

SBN does a weekly feature with it's bloggers called "Better Know A Blogger." The featured writer this year was me, obviously a huge mistake for all parties. Read my unfiltered commentary about how TRE started, why I love SBN, and who I think is the most disappointing team in the Big Ten.

Out of Our League - Why Two in the BCS Does the Big Ten No Favors

Even if the Big Ten wins both its BCS bowls (Rose, Fiesta) in 2009, the conference is still likely to have a losing (3-4) bowl season. On the other hand, if the Big Ten had just one BCS bowl participant (like most other conferences), the same teams would have a great chance of going (5-2) in bowls.

Fortunately for us, there's a way out, a way to return our national reputation to the halcyon days of Woody and Bo, JoePa and Nile Kinnick. We can expand the Big Ten.
