Jay Wilson and "Jump Around"

Since it’s an election year, it seems appropriate that USA Today declared a winner in its fan-powered contest to name “America’s Best College Town.” And the winner by popular vote is … Madison, Wis., home of the Wisconsin Badgers.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Big Ten Blast: Sept. 21st, 2012

O’Brien estimated that about 65 people tried out at the recent work out. I think the Nittany Lions may find some players who could help the program down the road in a football-mad state that produces a lot of good prospects. That’s the first of my Friday links – read the rest of this post for more.
