    Not too bad of a schedule actually. But, I will say, it looks like they put all of the toughest games on the road.

    It's really a bummer I was hoping I could hit a close road game but it's sad that Michigan State is the farthest east we'll be going. Is it safe to assume we will be @Rutgers and Home vs Michigan state in 2015 or are these all not home and homes?

    What a pathetic schedule. Open with an FCS team followed by one of the 10 worst FBS teams in the country. No Michigan. No Ohio State. No Penn State. We might play 2 ranked teams all season. I'm going to get a lot of yard work done in the fall of 2014.

    I don't know - the first two games are really weak, although with Carl being there, the first game has some interest. After that it's fairly interesting even without Mich, OSU and Penn State. This may give a young team, led by an young QB, time to get ready for the CCG and the Bowl game.

    I kind of see this as a make-up schedule for the schedule the B1G handed us in 2011 and 2012.

    Looks like Maryland and Rutgers are getting the 'Welcome to the B1G' schedule.

    What's up with the two byes during the conference schedule? Is that some quirk in the 2014 calendar?

    Home schedule looks pretty meager, but that was inevitable with how the divisions were laid out.

    They'll be moving to nine games pretty quickly, so the open dates will get filled in the future.

    Pisses me off. That should be our schedule. We bring in two also-rans to the league to make cable money and let them play 4 of the top 10 winningest programs in history.

    The 2011 and 2012 schedules were awesome. Great games to look foward to almost every Saturday, many of them on national TV in prime time.

    Yeah, but the SEC plays FBS scools late in the year, so.....

    But we have 2 weeks to prepare for the top 2 games...how'd we rate that?

    Meager is an understatement. Other than hosting the Canes for the first time since the '70s, this is a snoozefest:

    Florida Atlantic
    McNeese
    State
    Miami
    Illinois
    Rutgers
    Purdue
    Minnesota

    I hope Delaney makes good on parity scheduling when the league goes to 9 games in 2016. Either that, or Nebraska better be very good. If we go 9-3 against that type of schedule routinely, the sellout streak will be in serious jeopardy. Folks aren't going to cough up thousands in donations to play the league's second tier 4 years out of 5.

    We also have two bye weeks this year (before ILL and before MINN). This has nothing to do with 9 game schedules or 8 game conference schedules. That change will be in the order of dropping a non-con game... obviously.

    There are two bye weeks because of the way the start of NCAAF starts. It's sort of rare, but here is some more info from the B1G bloggers last year.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/...-bye-is-coming

    "Every Big Ten team -- every FBS team for that matter -- will have two open weeks during the 2013 season. The same holds true in 2014. The NCAA allows for an extra week in the college football season whenever Aug. 30 or Aug. 31 falls on a Saturday. Most FBS teams will kick off the 2013 season on Saturday, Aug. 31 and will start the 2014 campaign on Saturday, Aug. 30.

    The double-bye last surfaced in 2008, but its impact was minimal in the Big Ten because the league wrapped up regular-season play before Thanksgiving, so the Saturday after Turkey Day served as the second open week for all 11 teams. The Big Ten also didn't have a championship game until the 2011 season."

    Ouch. If 2013 doesn't go well for some reason, could the sellout streak be in jeopardy? That's a pretty bland, boring home schedule.

    Oh and with a new Quarterback (Stanton or Armstrong) this is the prefect schedule in 2014 in that regard...
