    Just read that on AnnArbor.com.

    The good news for me is that now I get to go to Lincoln for a game every year; it was just too easy to go 5 minutes from my house or up to East Lansing instead.

    Chi Town should like the 2016 schedule.

    "That 2017 schedule should be good to go as is."


    That 2017 schedule is missing a non-conf game?

    Outside of Tennessee, the 2016 home schedule looks very... blah.

    Fresno St
    Tennessee
    Wyoming
    Illinois
    Purdue
    Minnesota
    Maryland

    We only get FOUR conference home games, and we have to go on the road to Northwestern, Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Iowa. That's going to be a rough ride.

    The home schedule for 2017 looks much better, though.

    Northern Illinois
    Rutgers
    Wisconsin
    Ohio State
    Northwestern
    Iowa

    They need to do a better job of scheduling bye weeks. Don't need a bye week mid September.

    I've had my flight for it for a while now. I plan on going unless our team is having a grossly underachieving year.

    Stupid conference to have both marquee games on road or home together instead of playing one team on road and other at home. Like how you don't play same team from other division home and home.

    Bucky,

    Let me know what you'll be doing and we'll get together for sure

    BTW, my father was stricken with cancer and passed away in April. While on a visit to him I told him that you said hello. He got a big smile on his face; you guys must have done some real damage together back in the day!

    Oh, AnnArbor, I'm so sorry to hear that. Paul was a very, very good man and I admired him greatly. You and your family certainly have my condolences.

    I'll check back with you as the game gets nearer and see what we can do. I will have my wife, my son, his fiancee, and one of his buddies along with me.

    that was set up so that both Rutgers and Maryland would get a trip to Lincoln. Also, the scheduling is meant to be dynamic, putting the better programs cross-divisional up against each other.

    Stupid as they are force feeding games and you don't know who will be good 5 years from now, just do the home and home. Wonder why the Big 10 is 5th best conference?
