Video: Chris Collins sings at Wrigley Field

Northwestern’s Chris Collins proved he can coach against the nation’s elite in his first season as a head coach. That’s great and all, but what kind of singer is he? It’s a random question, yes, but Collins had the honor of singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” on Sunday at Wrigley Field. So many Chicago personalities have butchered the song and embarrassed themselves. Not Collins. The second-year coach nailed his rendition. Collins also threw out the ceremonial first pitch: Here's @NUMensBball's @coach_collins ready to throw his ceremonial first pitch: pic.twitter.com/Rg6X76iKyC — Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) May 18, 2014 And here

Photos: New Ohio State locker room includes waterwall

Nowadays, if teams aren’t routinely improving their facilities, they’re falling behind other teams. Ohio State fans will be happy to know the Buckeyes are doing everything to stay ahead of the game.

NBA team asked Nik Stauskas laughable money question

What’s the strangest, most ridiculous question you’ve been asked on a job interview? Former Michigan star and 2014 Big Ten Player of the Year Nik Stauskas was asked a laughable one while meeting with a future employer at the NBA draft combine. Let’s just say, the Minnesota Timberwolves were interested in Stauskas’ rudimentary math skills. See the question in this post.

Here’s a safe prediction: Penn State football fans will be eying the Beaver Stadium scoreboard far more often this fall. That’s because the team is adding a new LED scoreboard, part of a $10 million project, that is expected to be ready for the season opener. The video board also includes a ridiculously large Nittany Lion logo that includes LED lights. See a picture of it in this post.

Sometimes, rivalries take a backseat to reality. That was evident at the Cincinnati-Ohio State baseball game Tuesday, as the Bearcats added No. 11 patches to the right sleeve of their jersey. The patch honors Ohio State freshman pitcher Zach Farmer, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia late last month and will miss the rest of the season. See a picture of the patch in this post.

Video: Vitto Brown shows off singing voice - again

If basketball doesn’t work out for Wisconsin’s Vitto Brown, he can fall back on his musical talents. Brown is a talented singer. We saw it with his fabulous rendition of the National Anthem before the team’s Red-White Scrimmage, again when he and family members sang vs. Indiana, and at the 2014 Buckingham Awards. Brown’s at it again. This time, the rising sophomore is singing Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” with Fundamentally Sound, an award-winning group from Madison. Watch Brown’s latest work: What. A.
