Before We Begin

Good evening, Badgers fans. Before we get caught up in tomorrow's big game between Penn State and the Badgers, I thought it would be a good time to think about something more important than football. We are all aware of the scandal that rocked the Penn State community, and the effects it had on the football program. But more often than not it's the actual victims of sexual abuse that are forgotten, when their physical and mental well-bring should be front and center. Not something as trivial as football. Fortunately, in wake of this tragedy there are things you and I can do to help. Organizations like RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, are there to help promote awareness of sexual abuse. RAINN is now working with Proud PSU For RAINN to raise $500,000 in support of the victims and their families. If you are able, I know they would appreciate your support. They have already raised over $480,000, and have worked with Nebraska and Ohio State fans recently as well. As an aside, I'd like to encourage fans attending tomorrow's game to treat anyone affiliated with Penn State with respect. Have an excellent rest of the weekend, and enjoy what should be a classic game tomorrow.
