OSU v. Michigan Game Moving To Thanksgiving Weekend
This news is a bit stale but the Big Ten presidents recently agreed to extend the football season. The agreement adds a bye week to create a 13 week schedule. Consequently, The Game moves to Thanksgiving weekend beginning 2009.
The agreement was met with mixed emotions by the coaches. Tressel is not in favor of the move because he likes the fact his staff and players get to be home for Thanksgiving under the current schedule while others argue the extra week is needed because the Big Ten is the only conference to play 12 straight weeks.
Personally, I'm not sure it's a big deal based on the fact it's happened before and the last time was when Tressel fulfilled his promise back in 2001. What about you guys?
