How do you know you're a big deal? When your likeness is plastered on a vending machine, that's how. Former Wisconsin defensive end and current Houston Texan J.J. Watt now knows the feeling. The ex-Badger is featured on a vending machine that @JJWFoundation tweeted Thursday. Watt's Twitter response: "Wow. I hope it dispenses sacks at will."

Indeed. Watt was one of the Big Ten's elite pass rushers in 2010, finishing the season with seven sacks, nine pass deflections and 10 quarterback hurries. He totaled 5.5 sacks as rookie last season.
