What is up Badger fanatics? It's Friday and that means one thing here, it's time to go around the world of the Big Ten and give you the goods about all our wonderful frenimies around the Midwest. Before we get started with the main course, let's take a moment to remember what could have been  - Yes, I'm talking about the Big Ten/Pac-12 scheduling agreement. It's officially off the table now, so bow your heads in silence... O.k., that's a bit much but here are the statements from the commissioners of both leagues: (screw you Pac-12).

Joe Paterno Statue Replacement Ideas

Good bye Joe Pa statue, hello future! With the release of the Freeh Report, it’s pretty apparent that Joe Paterno’s legacy at Penn State has got to be erased.

Phil Knight Still Supports Child Rape Protector Joe Paterno; Name Removed From Child Care Facility

Nike said in 2011 that it wouldn’t remove Joe Paterno’s name from a child care facility on its Beaverton, Oregon campus because “Our relationship with Penn State remains unchanged,” a spokesperson said.

NBC 4 L.A. Cameras Catch Chicks Posing With Joe Paterno Statue This Morning

Going out on a limb and saying these chicks are incoming freshmen, are in State College for orientation, told mom to stop so they could get a photo with JoePa and then NBC 4 LA cameras caught them posing with a child rape protector.
