If you didn't see footage of the National Anthem at the Iowa-Northwestern game this weekend, you should watch (to the end to see the second message). Well done by the athletic department and the fans.
2 hours before the Nebraska-Chattanooga game. This is what's called the "Unity Walk." It was pretty cool watching the Husker football team walk into the football complex until my view was....uh....er...."obstructed."
Somebody autotuned Kevin Wilson, and it turns out it was IU Sports Marketing. Presented without comment [BH: Bumped. If Indiana is actually going to promote football, it seems like we should at least acknowledge them. And yes, this video would have been much more cutting edge if it were 2003, but still...they're trying. WARNING, GRAHAM: auto-tune ahead.]
Tradition doesn't get hypothermia. Ohio State students have jumped into the icy shallows of Mirror Lake on the Thursday before The Game for over a century. This year's summit was moved forward to Tuesday to avoid the Thanksgiving exodus of students from campus.
It's not often that you can combine military excellence with Big Ten football in one video. This is Sgt Adam Sniffen of the
Pukin' Buzzards 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) delivering the game ball to the Big House prior to the UM-MSU game.
Airborne: Death From Above.
RIP Jack 'The Assassin' Tatum. Before he tattooed Sammy White in Super Bowl XI, he was an All-American at Ohio State, and a member of the 1968 National Championship team. He died of a massive heart attack.
It's not just Rivalry Week for the boys from Columbus and Ann Arbor. For some of us, our enemy is a varmint.
