We actually might be better off playing Ohio and Sparty at home every other year.  Unless you're Alabama, it's unrealistic to expect to win conference and national championships every year.  This way, the team sets up nicely to make a strong push for those titles every other year with both of these games at home.

huh? We are going to be ManballAlabamaOfTheNorth by then as the prophecies have told us.  The 2018 seasion will be coming off a national championship season (maybe back to back) and all, so sure there will be losses of players but the five consecutive top 5 recroooting classes should take care of it.

Seriously though - it's the big friggin 10.  Wiscy, NW, OSU and MSU ... or LSU, Bama, UF, and Georgia?  Which is preferable?  Look OSU has the same classes we do - they are not making excuses and winning, even if sometimes close.  If we are not doing this by 2015-2016 a regime change is once again going to be in order.  Worrying about a Big 10 slate should not be causing major angst by that period; if it is, we are just a Big 10 also ran with a big name, along the likes of PSU.

No way to know who is going to be good then.

Hell, Ohio could be hurting from a scandal where their players get free tattoos and make money off their signatures, bowl game memorabilia, and other team gear while their coach tries to cover it up so that they can be full strength going into a BCS Bowl Game. I know that sounds real farfetched but you never know... it could happen.

Weird to see UM playing Rutgers, Nebraska, Maryland in football. It's like one of those ridiculous non-conference schedules from NCAA football 2004.

I wish Michigan would schedule a September home-home vs. Montana, for a more beautiful change up of scenery.

Perfect timing for Chip Kelly to arrive and right the ship with Rich Rod as his o-coordinator and because we are so bad ass we wont even employ a d-coordinator at all.

I'm looking forward to the early season games vs Wisconsin and Illinois. As I live in the Chicago burbs, I'm only about two hours or so from either campus, so it'll be nice to go to a road game early in the year while it's still warm out. I've been to U of I for a game before, but never Camp Randall, so I'm excited.  Yes I know we play Wisconsin on the road sooner than 2019 but it is in November and I prefer to watch those games indoors. Same for 2018 at Northwestern, I'll be at that game for sure too.

Words cannot describe how much I hate the fact that not only are we going to be in the same conference as Maryland and Rutgers, but the same division as well.

Delany's just going to throw out these schedules once he brings the Texas and Georgia markets to the BTN with the addition of Rice and Oglethorpe University.
