Big Tentacles: Tate Forcier, Wisconsin, Iowa, and more.

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big 10 and the teams it not-so-secretly covets.) 
Teacher says that every time a bell rings a Michigan quarterback  earns his wings. Tate Forcier, who had been practicing with a plain blue helmet due to perceived shortcomings on and off the field, has earned the right to wear the regular Michigan "winged" helmet.  (ESPN)

Bucky's Dream Home. Wisconsin seeks permission to build a new $76 million dollar football facility. (Bucky's 5th Quarter)

Is James Vandenberg the next great Iowa QB, or the next Ultimate Fighter? Vandenberg, Ricky Stanzi's backup at Iowa, tells how he made Pat Angrier tap out in "impromptu" MMA matches last year...once. (The (Cedar Rapids) Gazette)

"Don't want to be your monkey wrench."  The heck I don't.  Iowa and Nebraska are mentioned as teams that could "throw a wrench into the BCS." (Lindy's Sports)

"But don't ask me what I think of you. I might not give the answer that you want me to." Black Heart Gold Pants talks to "Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God" (not to be confused with The God of The Bible) over the calamities involving Iowa running backs. Which brings up an awesome Lewis Grizzard joke about Pat Dye and Auburn. (Black Heart Gold Pants)
