This is not a "pick up ND and have a conference championship game thread," but I do not like that there are two weeks of very exciting, heavily viewed football that the Big Ten is not involved in at all. (except for a strange Illinois beatdown). Thanksgiving weekend is a college football showcase with very competitive games and the Big Ten is no where to be found. Start late, institute a buy week if permissible, anything, but get a few games sprinkled in when the whole country has nothing else to do but eat and watch sports. I think it would shine some much needed light on the conference and possibly help with recruiting, etc. Any similar sentiments out there?
