Welp, it's officially official.
The Big Ten is now 14.
The conference already has a handful of trophy games, 12 to be exact, but the Terps are looking to join the fray. From a geographic standpoint, Penn State is a logical choice. Rutgers too. In fact, according to the Post, the Terps "have entered conversations" with Rutgers and Penn State "to create new trophies."
It has dropped. It's on MGoBlueTV.

The 100th edition of The Game with Beckmann and Brandstatter on the call. Includes post-game celebration, trophy presentation, and player interviews.
Question for MGoLawyers--
I was reading SCOTUSblog in preparation for the rulings expected today, and in my review of the NLRB decision from last week, I had a thought. A analysis of the case (http://www.laborlawyers.com/supreme-court-strikes-down-nlrb-recess-appointments) claims that every NLRB decision from Jan '12 up to now is subject to re-review due to the NLRB appointments being largely illegal w.r.t. recess appointment powers of the President. Does this have an impact on the NW Football union case? As I remember, the regional NLRB ruled NW football players have a chance to form a union being considered employees of the university, but the national NLRB subsequently impounded the votes because of a pending legal challenge ("The NLRB subsequently granted a request by the university for a full-board review of Ohr's decision, but players cast ballots two weeks on whether to unionize. Because of Northwestern's challenge, the ballots were impounded by the NLRB and unlikely to be counted until the full board issues a decision."- http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2014/05/08/house-education-workforce-committee-northwestern-football-labor-union/8846329/)
Does anyone know if this SCOTUS ruling changes the status quo on the NW case? Did the national NLRB issue a ruling? Would / could the universities involved in this case use this SCOTUS decision as a basis for a re-challenge of the original ruling? Could they wait it out for a potential change in NLRB composition that might be more favorable to them, as the Fisher & Phillips linked above suggests other losers of NLRB rulings might do? Now that Coulter is fully graduated from the university and is no longer an "employee" since he's no longer on scholarship, does he even have standing? Appreciate the comments...
I met a pretty amazing lady a couple of years ago, then this happened yesterday.
