We’ve been informed that the previous press release which we just published under the Avant-Guard Dog banner was not, in fact, satire, we’re actually just gonna go ahead and bend the knee to the whims of the Big Ten Six-plus-Notre-Dame.

There’s only 5 days available between Dec. 26-30 to squeeze in a two-night tournament, given the Wing’s traditional New Year’s Eve game. Throw in an extra Wings game, a Piston’s game and a concert or two, and GLI gets aced out.
