Looking at 2014 schedule and we really didn't get any help from the league. Our bye's come after game 3 and game 5. And our opponents coming out of bye week are Cincinnati and Rutgers. Not Ideal, in terms of timing of bye's nor who our following match up is against, would rather the opponent be one of our stronger opponents. In contrast looking at 3 of our tougher match up (at least on paper) and their bye weeks, it appears they will be well rested.
Michigan State - After Game 2 and After Game 8 - Next opponent OSU
Penn State - After Game 5 - Next opponent Mich - After Game 6 - OSU
Mich - After Game 7 - Next opponent Mich State - After Game 10 - game 11 get Maryland at home before "The Game"
Personally would much rather have bye weeks in the middle and late in the year as opposed to what we got. Also, would much rather be coming off a bye to play a rival. All three of ours get bye right before playing us (except Mich which gets one two weeks before). Plus Mich lucks out by getting one before it's two rivals.
