Three-thousand-something miles later, the BTN Summer Football Tour is complete. Re-live parts of my trip below (I only went to Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State this year):
Love them or hate them, Penn State’s football uniforms are here to stay. During the BTN Football Tour, we asked PSU’s Silas Redd what he thought about his team’s uniforms. Let’s just say, he’s a fan of tradition.
As the BTN Football Tour made its way through Big Ten country, we noticed fans and players alike were leaving souvenirs on the side of our bus. Iowa and Wisconsin left magnetic schedules, which stayed with us until the final stop. And while we were in State College, Michael Mauti added a PSU logo. Check out the video below:
Ever walk from the Michigan football locker room and onto iconic Michigan Stadium? We had the opportunity to do so during our annual BTN Football Tour earlier this month. It’s a pretty cool experience — even when there’s no gameday atmosphere whatsoever. I can’t imagine what it would be like on a fall Saturday when 100,000-plus fans are screaming their heads off waiting for the Wolverines to run out and hit the “Go Blue” banner.
With football season fast approaching, I thought I’d throw some 2011 Big Ten predictions out there. This is never a safe practice, as some of the picks always seem to backfire on you by the end of the season. But it’s all for fun and to spark some conversation, so, I figure, why not do it? Why not guess division champs, Big Ten champ, individual superlatives and the conference’s major statistical leaders? Go ahead, check out all of my picks.
