Here's the coolest Big Ten video you'll see today

Earlier this week we pointed out some pretty cool sneak peek videos from our upcoming show “The Journey 2012,” but the video in this post is worth watching and sharing with any Big Ten fans you know. It’s the opening to Wednesday’s season debut, which airs at 7:30 p.m. ET, and it’s gorgeous.

What do you think? Ready to strap on the pads and hit something? Go tell the guys who put the show together yourself. Our producers are on Twitter @BTNJourney and Facebook. They also deliver some extremely sharp photos via Instagram (BTNJourney).

A few shots are below:

“… In closing, let me say that this case involves tragic and tragically unnecessary circumstances. One of the grave dangers stemming from our love of sports is that the sports themselves can become “too big to fail,” or even too big to challenge.

The result can be an erosion of academic values that are replaced by the value of hero worship and winning at all costs. All involved in intercollegiate athletics must be watchful that programs and individuals do not overwhelm the values of higher education.

In the Penn State case, the results were perverse and unconscionable. No price the NCAA can levy will repair the grievous damage inflicted by [removed, as his name is not worth mentioning] on his victims.

However, we can make clear that the culture, actions, and inactions that allowed them to be victimized will not be tolerated in collegiate athletics.” (}

… unless you’re making a documentary about self-sacrifice for football success above everything else. Have we learned nothing?
