The Big Ten Conference announced the 2012 All-Big Ten Softball Teams on Wednesday afternoon, and five-time reigning champ Michigan dominated the honors. The Wolverines swept all of the individual laurels, with first baseman Amanda Chidester taking home Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.

The outcry came about a nanosecond after the 2012 College Football Hall of Fame inductees were announced: How come Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier didn’t get elected? I wish I had an answer. But, alas, I don’t. It remains a mystery of the universe—and a Titanic miscarriage of justice. I am a member of the National Football Foundation, and thus a voter for the Hall.

The 17-member 2012 College Football Hall of Fame class was announced Tuesday, and former Purdue running back Otis Armstrong was the lone Big Ten product inducted.

Frazier went 33-2 and won two national titles and four Big 12 championships, while Pace is one of the most dominant offensive lineman of all time. See the tweets in this post.
Nebraska basketball coach Tim Miles announced Tuesday that Terran Petteway has transferred to the Huskers. Petteway, who spent the 2011-12 season at Texas Tech University, will have three years of eligibility beginning with the 2013-14 season.
