Badger Bits: Leuer in Indy, Russell Wilson in Madison?

Hey all, hope you're staying cool today in the face of these record high temperatures sweeping the Midwest. If free agent quarterback Russell Wilson is truly visiting Madison today as has been reported, he'll feel right at home with the heat, as he hails from Virginia and obviously played for NC State. A quick update on how Wilson is faring in minor league baseball can be found here. He's hitting .212 for the Class A Asheville Tourists, and just hit his second home run of the season on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Jon Leuer continues his NBA team workout tour with a stop in Indianapolis. Other players he'll be working out with include Butler's Matt Howard and Purdue's E'Twaun Moore. He also just worked out with the Pistons. Where do you think would be the best NBA landing spot for Jon? Let us know in the comments.

Less 11 AM CT kickoffs in the Big Ten is the plan going forward, though Wisconsin already has one 11 AM kickoff scheduled for this season. The starting times for the games against Northern Illinois and Oregon State will be announced later today.
