A quick programming note that the lunch links will no longer appear every day until spring practice kicks off in March. If there are links worth linking, I'll link 'em. But you'll get your daily diet again in March.
Here's today's sampling.
Ohio State's two-quarterback system, unveiled in the Fiesta Bowl, might help land top recruit Tajh Boyd, Tim May writes in The Columbus Dispatch.
"The only promise sought by Boyd -- the throwing/running threat led Phoebus to a state championship and then shared the MVP award in the U.S. Army All-American game on Jan. 3 in San Antonio -- is a chance.
"'I just want an opportunity to play early,' Boyd said. 'That's going to be a big part of it because I feel like I am one of the top players in the country and I really don't want to sit.'"
Michigan tight end Carson Butler was among the underclassmen who declared for the NFL draft, giving the Wolverines another reason to focus on pass-catchers in recruiting, Josh Helmholdt writes in the Detroit Free Press.
Chicago Cubs chairman Crane Kenney is checking to see if Wrigley Field would be big enough to accommodate a Northwestern-Illinois football game, Teddy Greenstein writes in the Chicago Tribune.
"One key question was answered Monday: If NU wants to move its game Nov. 20, 2010, against Illinois from Ryan Field to Wrigley, it does not need Illinois' approval.
"'The only time a school would need approval is if it wanted to have a date changed,' said Big Ten Associate Commissioner Mark Rudner."
Arizona State might want to change the dates of its scheduled series against Wisconsin in 2010 and 2012, Tom Mulhern writes in the Wisconsin State Journal.
Todd Fitch might have wanted a longer contract to coordinate Minnesota's offense than Tim Brewster was willing to offer, Kent Youngblood writes in the Star Tribune.
