We sent BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart on the BTN Football Tour to provide analysis from every Big Ten camp. He’s done so through the first three stops. With a day of travel planned Friday, well, he couldn’t stop the analysis. This time, Dienhart provided witty and entertaining play-by-play of the tour bus’ mechanical troubles, right outside State College, Pa.
