Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

There is no better symbol for everything that has gone horribly awry in college sports in the last half-decade than Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany, who today will take his latest turn at pissing into the eyeballs of his conference's fanbase in search of more dollar bills to not give ...

Jim Delany threatens to take Big Ten to D-III

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

In one of the most amusing bluffs in the history of anything, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany says his league will go to Division III before it pays one of its athletes a dime. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Delany claimed that is the route the conference will take if ...

A Big Thank You To The Big Ten Network

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

Apparently I'm late to the party on this one. But God damn Big Ten Network you just made my jaw drop. Enter Melanie Collins. My roommate and I's simultaneous response: "Damn!" Hot damn. Busted Coverage has already tabbed her the "Next Erin Andrews." I eagerly await the bathroom stall pee cam. Collins, a former ...
