Happy Holidays to Big Ten Nation
Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg
I want to wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. This is a great time of year not only for college football, but for enjoying family and friends. Let's savor it.
The blog will be pretty quiet for the rest of the week, though I'll take a look at Wisconsin and the Champs Sports Bowl on Friday and follow up with some pre-game and post-game thoughts on Saturday. Things will crank up again next week, as we get closer to New Year's Day and three Big Ten bowls (Outback, Capital One, Rose).
I will fly to Arizona on Dec. 31 to begin covering the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, though I won't neglect the other games.
Thanks again for all your interest in the Big Ten blog. I've really enjoyed this first season, and I'm continually amazed with the passion and knowledge of college football fans. The blog will be year-round, so I won't be going anywhere after Jan. 5 (and hopefully, neither will you).
Enjoy the holiday, and I'll check back with you soon.
