There was only a little college football scheduling news today, so what else do we have to occupy our wandering minds with? Arbitrary superlatives, of course. Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com laid out his 20 craziest athletes in college football, and it was equal parts surprising and sweet to see Borland listed 1) at all, and 2) in the top 10. This is the reputation of a Wisconsin athlete that's being acknowledged, after all. Thanks to Twitter follower @Ben_Bryan, this GIF returns to us from the bottomless pit of 2012 college football memories. Coincidentally, the 2013 season starts in exactly 100 days.
A few different pics made the rounds today, and you can find most of them under some variant of #B1GChamps. The top is pretty standard championship ring fare, with the team logo surrounded by that regular but still awesome championship font. The left side features the always brilliant Rose Bowl logo, and the right has each player or coach's name with the number of Big Ten Championship trophies he's won. Pretty cool bit of personalization there. (This pic courtesy of @DerekWatt34)
There we have it - the vertical football logo is the official one of the new College Football Playoff. That jibes with our informal poll, which had 34% of B5Q readers favoring what EDSBS tabbed the "Football Eye of Sauron."
Obviously not Badgers-related, but I know many of you plan on picking this one up just like every other year. I know I sure will -- who else?
Dear Iowa, Beau Allen is the USA Guy the Big Ten can believe in. Nuts to the Ricky Stanzi. The Badgers win again. Your Pal, Andrew Rosin
From @BadgerFootball: "Tune in Monday for full reveal of NEW @adidas Techfit uniform #Badgers will wear vs. Nebraska."
I don't post here much, but frequently lurk around reading content. I may have missed this being posted in a comment section somewhere at sometime, but if not I couldn't let this gif disappear without sharing it with my fellow Badgers. h/t to The Smoking Musket
It's finally Nebraska Saturday. We want to see a lot of corn-cob clutching today. Anyone else getting ready to go to College Gameday right now? Make sure to bundle up, it'll be chilly. So, there are actually other B1G games this week. They matter little, but the predictions show must go on: Wisconsin 28, Nebraska (+10) 24 Illinois 34, Northwestern (+10) 27 Michigan 44, Minnesota (+20.5) 27 Penn State 30 (-14.5), Indiana 7 Michigan State (+3.5) 27, Ohio State 21 Notre Dame 31, Purdue (+12) 28 Bye: Iowa Season Record: SU: 36-10, .783 ATS: 19-27, .413
Looks like Bucky is moving up in the world. According to a tweet from Brandon Harrison, everyone's favorite badger will be featured in a "This Is Sportscenter" commercial, which will air this fall. Thoughts? Personally, I can't wait to see it.
