Random question I've wondered for a few months, but not important enough to ask mid-season. Do they play samples of the song "Black and Gold" at Iowa games?

"When you look at the cross-divisional games, Ohio State-Michigan makes sense, Penn State-Nebraska makes sense, and Iowa-Purdue probably doesn't. But they're two conference schools that, when you look at it, are very close together."

Veteran linebacker [and Penn Stater] Tamba Hali, who led the AFC in sacks in 2010, and rookie safety Eric Berry were late additions to the NFL’s all-star game after the Super Bowl participants were decided Sunday.

Nolan Tangent

The WNBA’s Tulsa Shock, new home of the 3-time WNBA champion Detroit Shock and now coached by former Arkansas head coach Nolan Richardson, has signed disgraced 2000 Olympian Marion Jones to their team. I can’t figure out what’s the most surprising element in that sentence. And since this has yet to have any relationship to PSU yet, I will confirm that Nolan McCready has no relation to Nolan Richardson, and that Richardson during his 2002 tirade mentioned that it was easier to recruit at a place surrounded by urban areas like Penn State.

Big Ten Ass't. Coaching Moves

9

Never has a standard five sentence AP report about off-season coaching moves left me as confused as this one. Tulsa announced West's departure Monday, saying he would coach inside linebackers for the Illini. West had spent only one season at Tulsa after previously serving as defensive coordinator at Clemson. So West has gone from Clemson DC to a position coach at Illinois in two years...I don't think his career is moving in a positive direction. On top of this, he's the "inside linebacker coach." Unless Illinois decided to operate out of a 3-4 in the offseason, doesn't that mean he's coaching a single position? Essentially, Mr. West is going to coach Ian Thomas and Ian Thomas' backup. I know the Illini' LB corps was pretty poor this past season, but to they really need a 1-to-1 student/coach ratio? Clarence James also resigned from Tulsa's staff after one season. He had been the Golden Hurricane's outside receivers coach and director of recruiting. What the hell is an "outside receiver"? Does he only coach wide receivers that line up outside of the pocket? If a WR goes in motion and lines up behind the QB does that mean the University of Tulsa has a different "inside receiver" coach to handle these situations? Perhaps he needed that extra time that would have been spent on coaching motions and instead focused on recruiting? I'm baffled. Thank you, AP, for your enigmatic Big Ten offseason coaching moves bulletin.
