There is a lot going on in the world of Big Ten sports. And, my email inbox reflects that.
Talk of the Big Ten considering the possibility of playing some Friday night football games has created a buzz. I wrote a story about it earlier this week. In the two-and-a-half years I’ve been doing this job, I never have gotten as much email on a subject. It’s not even close. And, judging by the majority of your correspondence, the idea of Friday night football doesn’t have great appeal for fear of the high school game being impacted. Still opinions vary. Have a look.
