Hey, the Big Ten Had to Start Somewhere

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

We finally did it!!!!!!!!!! Yes, we're really that happy, with all the exclamation points and everything, about the Big Ten's first victory in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Seriously, we are that EFFING pumped. It's been a long time coming. Like, 11 years in the making. So what if the Big Ten is ...
