Yeah. They could've played off the recent protests against NATO in downtown Chicago. Some kind of police uniform, with blue helmets, batons and a bullshit authoritative agenda.

I'd say that I enjoyed the Wisconsin gloves more than anything I've seen so far.  A chart showing whether you should "go for one" or "go for two" when you are up 3TD+ was a hilarious slam on Bielema.

As for best to come, probably Ohio because they could do so much with all of the allegations they had  during their scandal.  I'd imagine they would do tattoo sleeves for part of the unis.  PSU's scandal can't really be touched, so it will be interesting to see what they do with their traditional/plain uniforms.

Oh, my son. You have much to learn. The Butterfield/Section 1 feuds have been going on for many generations. It all began when Butterfield's ancestors wanted a milk field, but Section 1's ancestors said, "No, you will have butterfield!" This made Butterfield's ancestors very angry. And so they have born the mark of their disgrace for many moons. And so the bad blood runs thick between them.

This one was pretty dumb.  I don't know that IL is particularly known as a hotbed of meth production.  Maybe I'm just sheltered up here in Chicago. 

If you look at the DEA map of all meth lab incidents, IN, TN, KY, MO, and OK all have WAY more than IL in 2011.  Looking at 2010, add AL, MS, AR, and MI (sorry guys) to the list. 

Also, if you look at incidents per capita, IL has an incident for every 22,227 residents, while IA has an incident for every 8,059 residents.

Chicago has nearly no meth lab incidents and yet has ~75% of the population of chicago within the metropolitan area.  So just making very, very rough estimates that's actually one per 6K in rural illinois.  In reality, it's probably similar to Iowa's values.


I'm from a small city in central/western illinois that had a population of 40K.  We had a SWAT team who's one job was meth lab seizure.  


My dad had a patient who was arrested with >3 million in cash in his house from selling primarily to my high school.  The great majority of kids had free/reduced lunch (80-90%) and the median household income was 30k.  That's a ton of money from kids without any money.


My 6th grade teacher taught us what ingredients you need for making meth as people used to make it in her backyard.


Outside of chicago, meth is big in illinois.

This one is "meh", in my opinion, although a full-face respirator is an innovative safety enhancement for Division I football regardless, and if someone would like to paint the exterior of my house wearing this, that would be pretty cool, I must admit.

I have to admit, Minnesota is frickin' sweet.  My prediction:  the MSU version will have something to do with the raging penis envy they have for a certain B1G colleague.
