this may be of some local interest
Nebraska just announced that DT Jared Crick is done for this year after suffering a torn pectoral muscle. That's a huge blow to an already struggling Nebraska defense.
Also didn't see mentioned in the boards, Ohio State is not getting Nathan Williams back this season on defense as he needs surgery on his knee.
Tough break for both programs.

Others to note
Current leader- SMU- prescott line.. I have no clue who he is. anyone know much on him?
I went with ross because he just seems to be playing well and ACE seems to have a great liking for him. Vote for who want but lets see if we can get a wolverine ahead in the vote.
With 2013 receiver Laquon Treadwell getting a Michigan offer yesterday, I'm sure a lot of people are interested in seeing him on film. There hasn't been much out there until about an hour ago, when someone posted this highlight tape from the first half of this season:
Though Treadwell doesn't display top-flight speed, he's got most everything else you'd want from a receiver—solid size, good hands, and (probably his biggest strength) the ability to get yards after the catch. He's quite physical for a wideout, and as you can see he also plays defensive end. Treadwell will be one to watch for a potential early commit—he was here for the Notre Dame game with his teammate, 2012 commit Anthony Standifer, and he seemed very excited about the offer. I know he plans on sitting down with his family and talking things over, and it's still quite early in the process, but things are looking very good for Michigan right now.
Are there any Big Ten Network Hosts that you like?
I was going to post that I hated that Tony Banks is the MSU rep on the BTN. I just don't find him knowledgable and find his mannerisms very awkward. Then I thought to myself is there anyone on the BTN that I really "like" or is "good". Don't be mad, but Jansen doesn't do it for me. DiNardo is a buffoon IMO. Mason for as good of a coach as he was, doesn't offer much. That goofy guy from NW on the Big Ten Pulse is beyond annoying.
The only two guys I really respect or enjoy are Revsine and Howard Griffith.
The boys over at MGoVideo have this week's episode up, for those of us bored at the office...
DM gets props from ESPN - much deserved:
