Celebrating 5 years: Top 5 wide receivers of BTN era

Believe it or not, BTN will celebrate its fifth anniversary later this month. The big day is Aug. 30, to be exact. As a way to celebrate – not to mention kill time before the 2012 season kicks off – I’m spotlighting some of the great football careers during our time on the air.

BALL MEETS THE MEDIA: Star Wisconsin running back Montee Ball addressed the media for the first time since an assault earlier this month left him with a concussion.

New Purdue train logo featured on football jerseys

Not a great photo, by any means, but this is the only look I’ve seen of the much-debated new Purdue train logo on the football jersey. Back in April, the logo change was a hugely popular topic. And let’s just say, not many Boiler fans were happy with the tweaks Nike made.
