Honest question: How many college football teams can say they have a nicer practice field than Northwestern's new lakeside Hutcheson Fiel

[ MORE: Alex Hornibrook owns JUGS machine | Saquon Barkley drops jaws in drill ] Michigan’s cornerback-turned-safety-turned-linebacker is an athletic talent who can make plays all over the field, even on the offensive side of the ball. He’s fast. He’s quick. He’s strong. He’s powerful. His hands are pretty impressive, to boot. Watch Peppers show off his hands in

.@IlliniAD has still got it 🏈🙌 #Illini #WeWillWin pic.twitter.com/yoXQcKbkES — Illini Football (@IlliniFootball) August 4, 2016 Josh Whitman was a productive Illinois football player long before becoming the school’s AD. The former tight end, in fact, totaled 52 receptions, 552 yards and seven touchdowns during his Illinois career (1997-2000). Whitman, who was hired Feb. 17, still looks like can play some ball. He proved it Thursday at Illinois’ first practice of the Lovie Smith era, catching several balls off the JUGS machine. Check out the ex-tight end’s hands in the tweet above. Honest question: How many ADs could make something
NFL camps are underway, and several former Big Ten stars aren’t wasting any time making head-turning plays. More specifically, must-see catches. We found a trio of remarkable catches – yes, even if they came in practice – on social media today, and thought we’d share the goods. There’s one from Minnesota’s Stefon Diggs (Maryland), Houston’s Braxton Miller (Ohio State) and Los Angeles’ Kenny Britt (Rutgers, before the Scarlet Knights entered the Big Ten). The Diggs’ one, for my money, is the best of the bunch. Check them out below. This catch by @stefon_diggs… 🙀💯🙀💯🙀@Vikings #TrainingCamp @kare11 pic.twitter.com/SbsDsthoQF — Brandon McCauley
The Penn State football team got its first look at its new locker room late Wednesday night. It safe to say, the players love the impressive new digs.
This years for you buddy!! #SF27 #Huskers pic.twitter.com/Z53HQ6vP0L — Kyle Kotrous (@Kkotrous22) August 3, 2016 Nebraska shared the helmet decal it will wear to honor late punter Sam Foltz on Wednesday afternoon. Assistant equipment manager Kyle Kotrous tweeted a picture of the decal, which features Foltz’s initials, in red, and number (27), in white; the decal is affixed to the back left of the helmet, just above the players’ number. Foltz, the 2015 Big Ten Punter of the Year and a former walk-on from Greeley, Nebraska, was killed in a one-car accident returning home from a kicking camp in Wisconsin
These days, who doesn't enjoy a good facility tour? Throw in former players, no less guys now playing in the NFL, leading the tour, and it's must-see stuff.
