It’s obvious that I love me some Kain Colter. And I’m going to miss me some Kain Colter. I still remember when his college football career was born on New Year’s Day 2011 in the bowl game whose name I can’t remember, but it was held in The Cotton Bowl. And now it’s over….sort of. Colter has the Senior Bowl; and a chance to prove his NFL Draft stock.

Illini versus Northwestern:
Why are you actually reading this? Because you love it. America loves a pathetic train wreck. How else can you explain Snooki’s 15 minutes? And how she somehow parlayed that into another 30 minutes? And believe me, one team here will play as unsightly as Snooki’s face. And the other team...

Does Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter have a future in the NFL? Well, maybe but if so only at a position other than QB. I was on media conference call with ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. and I asked about the professional football future of Big Ten players.
