On Saturday, the storied conference played nine teams that put the cream in creampuff: Akron, Austin Peay, Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Northern Colorado, Northern Illinois and Temple. Even still, Temple gave Penn State all it could handle, Toledo beat Purdue, and Northern Illinois topped the Program Formerly Known as Minnesota.

When asked if "baby seal" was a merely a euphemism for more shitty and 1-AA teams," Delany shook his head.

Before he could elaborate further, Brewster was whisked away by trained medical personnel after school officials read about the coach seeing "progress" and good things ahead for his football team following the NIU loss.
Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez was also in favor of scheduling the baby seals. "Your star player has just as much of a chance of getting hurt against a 1-AA school as a real school," said Rodriguez who was still cleaning the urine stain off his pant leg following the luckily-not-serious injury to Wolverine QB Denard Robinson. "But against the baby seal, nobody should get hurt and a lot of guys will get a chance to play. Something that doesn't always happen when you schedule a tough non-conference game against a football powerhouse, like say UMass."

Reached for comment, SEC commissioner Mike Slive said his conference had no intention of following the Big 10's lead in the scheduling of baby seals. Slive insisted the SEC would not stoop to such levels and would instead continue to schedule home-only games against roadkill and corpses as has been league policy for years.
