Big Ten lunch links: Buckeyes eyeing Boyd


Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

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. 

"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.'"

"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."
