Hodor bringing 'Rave of Thrones' to Madison

Hodor2

Kristian Nairn is an actor who plays Hodor on Game of Thrones, that HBO show you guys won't stop talking about! This Cap Times writeup tells me that he just says his name over and over, and I'm now wondering if Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot is just one big, fat rip-off.

ANYWAY, it turns out that Nairn is a very popular DJ who will be playing a dance party at the Majestic Theatre in Madison on Feb. 25. Yes, it will be called "Rave of Thrones." Tickets went on sale this morning, and if they're not sold out already, they're $15 and also will allow you to see DJ Lovecraft.

Rutgers QB Gary Nova participates in practice, still questionable

+

After he was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday, Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova took some reps on Wednesday, according to ScarletReport.com. Nova is still questionable for Saturday's game vs. Wisconsin, and backup Chris Laviano once again saw a "significant amount" of action in practice.

Nova was injured late in Rutgers' loss to Nebraska last weekend. Laviano came in and was a capable replacement, going 6-of-11 for 59 yards and also adding 54 rushing yards (46 did come on one carry).

As Andrew Rosin wrote in his preview of Saturday, Rutgers' offense will have a tough enough task facing a Wisconsin defense that's essentially fully healthy and continuing to improve. Having Nova behind center should at least make that burden more manageable.

Rutgers QB Gary Nova throws at practice, still questionable for Wisconsin

+

Rutgers quarterback Gary Nova is still questionable for Saturday's game vs. Wisconsin. Nova injured his right knee late in Saturday's loss to Nebraska. Redshirt freshman Chris Laviano was a capable replacement, going 4-of-7 for 49 yards while also leading the Scarlet Knights with 54 rushing yards (thanks mainly to a 46-yard scamper).

Per Scarlet Report, Flood was pleased with Nova's progress, which included throwing passes but not participating in team drills. Flood echoed that positivity later on the weekly Big Ten coaches teleconference, though he reiterated that Nova's status remains TBD.
