As it was announced last week, Penn State is adding nameplates to the back of its jerseys for the first time in program history. The Nittany Lions also will wear a blue ribbon on their uniform to support all victims of child abuse. @PennStateFball tweeted a picture of the road jersey nameplates Tuesday afternoon. See the photo in this post, plus a video of the home nameplates being prepared.
Coaches go to great measures trying to build team camaraderie. Second-year Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill recently approved a fun and enjoyable team building activity that could only make the team grow closer. The Gophers went paintballing Sunday. And goldengophergridiron’s YouTube page has a video from the event. See the full feature in this post.
Day 2 in the great state of Wisconsin is here, as we’ve left Madison and are in Kenosha to watch Pat Fitzgerald’s Wildcats practice Tuesday. You can catch the Wisconsin Preview Show at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday. Until then, check out these Big Ten web links.
The BTN Tour bus made its way to Madison on Monday to watch Wisconsin, the back-to-back reigning Big Ten champ. While watching practice, offensive coordinator Matt Canada told me he’s happy with what he has installed thus far, as camp is about to hit full stride. I couldn’t help but to focus on what has to be one of the most closely watched signal-caller battles in camp across the nation. Canada says it’s a three-man derby between Danny O’Brien, Curt Phillips and Joel Stave.
