Happy Memorial Day from the B1G crew


The good news is it's Memorial Day, the unofficial kick off to summer. The bad news is we're still a few months away from Labor Day weekend and the start of college football.

But we'll get there soon enough, and we'll keep your summer full of Big Ten news and nuggets here at the blog -- just not today. We're taking the holiday off, barring any major breaking news. (And who could possibly forget the Memorial Day madness from 2011? Seems like much longer ago.)

Hope you're at a lake or a barbecue or just relaxing with friends and family. Have a great holiday, stay safe and take at least a few moments to remember those to whom the day is dedicated. We'll be back with more Big Ten football talk on Tuesday morning.
