Happy Memorial Day, Big Ten fans

It has been a beautiful holiday weekend around most of Big Ten country. Here's hoping it stays that way.

The blog is off for Memorial Day, and we wish you a happy and safe holiday. A special thank you to all active military, veterans and their families for all the sacrifices you have made and continue to make.

Barring major breaking news, which has happened before in the Big Ten on this holiday, we'll be back at you Tuesday morning.

Enjoy the day.
