Michigan Fan

Video: No 'chickening out' for this Michigan fan

Just about a year ago, Brady Hoke made headlines by saying Notre Dame was “chickening out of” its football rivalry with Michigan. Hoke made the comment last offseason while speaking to a group of Michigan alumni in Grand Rapids, Mich. Why are we bringing it up again, you ask? Well, Michigan held a Polar Plunge on Saturday at Michigan Stadium, and one diver went into the giant tub of ice water wearing a Notre Dame jersey over a chicken costume. “That’s for your coach,” the fan said to Hoke after he ripped off his chicken head. Classic! Even better: All

Iowa Card Stunt

During the National Anthem prior to No. 15 Iowa’s game vs. No. 16 Wisconsin on Saturday, the fans at Carver-Hawkeye Arena performed their inaugural card stunt.

Gerry DiNardo sounds off on unionization efforts

There is a movement afoot to unionize Northwestern football players, with on-going hearings taking place on the subject in Chicago. The NU players are being supported by the College Athletes Players Association (CAPA). And former Wildcats quarterback Kain Colter is spearheading the cause, having already testified before the National Labor Relations Board. Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald testified today. I talked to BTN analyst Gerry DiNardo—a former head coach at Vanderbilt, LSU and Indiana–about the unionization effort.

Survey Says: Who is the Big Ten's best dunker?

If it’s Friday, it’s time for my survey. This week, I asked Big Ten media members who is the best dunker in the conference. A guy from Ohio State was a popular choice. [ MORE: Review and Preview: Badgers, Huskers riding streaks ] Ben Jones, StateCollege.com: Branden Dawson had some pretty impressive dunks prior to injury. With that in mind, I’ll go with D.J. Newbill who doesn’t have many but all of them have been impressive. His two dunks against Wisconsin on the road last year (here & here) are as good as you’ll see not in transition. Brian Neubert,
