Headed to the B10 Lucheon on July 24th in Chicago.  Looking forward to the event, as it is a first for me; going to make it a few days stay in Chicago, and enjoy some summer fun.  
Be sure to look me up.
How do you go about getting tickets for that thing, BTW?
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

Worn down after a fun day tubing, and teaching oldest to water ski.  She's getting the hang of it.    Funny moment, the kids (and their cousins) were retrieving the stray inflatable rafts and such before lunch, and my niece starts walking along the shore to reach a raft and a 3 1/2 ft water snake surfaces from the grass/ground shrubs and startles the daylights out of her.   Moments later we see a huge ugly snapper passing through.    I'm surprised they got back in the lake after that today.

I remember a segment from "Dirty Jobs" with Mike Rowe.He went noodling in Okla. - the good old boys had some fun with him.As soon as he got his hand under a rock or log they'd warn him about giant snapping turtle's or water snakes biting in the ass.The look was priceless

A LOOK AT 2017 STADIUM ARRESTS, EJECTIONS AND INCIDENTS FROM BIG TEN FANBASES


https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2018/06/93509/a-look-at-2017-stadium-ejections-arrests-and-incidents-from-big-ten-fanbases

The annual rivalry game against Ohio State was the busiest game day of police activity last season at the Big House, as there were 48 ejections and five arrests during the Buckeyes' 31-20 win. Most of those ejections, along with the 71 ejections made across the Wolverines' other five home games, were made for disorderly conduct, alcohol inside the stadium, possession of another's identification or passing identification to another.

Wow, they put so many guys on the list you could pick 20 at random and they'd all be deserving.  
I always found it funny, Crouch winning the Davey O'Brien award.  I just view that as a big-passing thing and he had like 7 TD and 10 INT.  Give him the Heisman, fine, but the O'Brien?  Odd.

How about Tommie Frazier winning the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in 95?

Well, looking at the Unitas, there's 2 things:
1 - it's seniors only, so that limits things
2 - Tony Rice won it with 2 TD and 9 INT in 1989

Frazier was a very efficient passer in '95.  Only about 60 fewer attempts than the previous year's winner.  

I just viewed the O'Brien as more of a high-volume passing award, but that was wrong as well.  The Sammy Baugh award seems to be that - lots of BYU, Texas Tech, Houston guys winning it.  It seems like it's for the biggest video game-like numbers for a QB award.  

I still say if Grossman was a JR, he'd have won in a landslide for the Heisman and all of the others he was eligible for.

I'm part of a baseball forum, and am known for my criticism of award voters there.  Same with college football awards, especially the Heisman.

In both sports, awards a player has won are used as support to induct them into the Hall of Fame.  That'd be great....if the voters didn't suck so bad.  We can land a remote-control car on Mars and it can send pictures back to us, but we can't give the Heisman to a lineman.  It's embarrassing.

either give the trophy to the  "most outstanding player"

or change the verbage to most popular player
