As someone who lost a mother to ALS, all I can say is “thank you” to all of the BIG TEN coaches, players, fans, and alumni who are taking the Ice Bucket Challenge. Ice water is nothing compared to those who have ALS and could not lift a bucket. Towel in hand , get wet, post your video,and HAVE FUN! THANKS to BTN for posting the videos and thanks to Drew Brees for your support.

I’m disappointed that no one from Iowa has done it. I did it and challenged Fran McCaffery and Kirk Ferentz. I hope that they respond!
