Just a note on trophy games. With the addition of Maryland and Rutgers I would like to see a trophy game between Maryland and Penn State. They would play for the surveyor’s transit (Mason-Dixon Line). Penn State and Rutgers could play for Washington’s Boat (as in G. Washington crossed the Delaware River to defeat the Brits). I don’t yet have an idea what trophy Maryland and Rutgers would play for.

Just a thought
