a terrible blight on our fine country
Someone at the Big 10 Media Day has just uploaded Denard's speech on YouTube. Not sure how to embed. Didn't want to add it as a comment on the other thread since I figured that it would get burried but mods please go ahead and delete if this needs to be posted in the other thread instead
Not bad. Not bad at all IMO. The 1G could be a little more Maize and not gold, but other then that, I don't mind it too much.
First, WTF is the point of the Big Ten Network if they don't even air the student keynote speech live?

Background behind the speech:
Video (embedded below):
Nebraska will be wearing these against Wisconsin this year on Sept 29th.
Good thing they will be wearing these, that was one of the most difficult games to watch last year with all the red and white.
I have grown quite fond of this show and try to watch it every week.
I will embed below.
