There is a movement afoot to unionize Northwestern football players, with on-going hearings taking place on the subject in Chicago.
There were two exciting Big Ten hockey games on Friday night. Penn State notched a memorable 5-4 upset win over Michigan in the first game of the night. No. 8 Wisconsin followed with an impressive 5-2 victory over Michigan State. Catch up on all the stats, scores and highlights in this post.
It was just last week when I released my team-by-team breakdown of who would make the Mount Rushmore of Big Ten basketball players.
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.
If you haven’t already made an appointment for the psychiatrist’s couch, do so. The craziness that is 2014 Big Ten basketball continues with plenty more to come. Keep that straightjacket handy.
This case of Northwestern players seeking to unionize has been fascinating, creating some strong feelings on both sides. Former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter testified before the National Labor Relations Board in Chicago on Tuesday, as the players try to show they are employees of the school with the support of the College Athletes Players Association (CAPA). Today, Wildcats coach Pat Fitzgerald testified.
