EXCLUSIVE Interview with UVA's "Goose Guy" - Streaking The Lawn

As the Virginia Cavaliers closed out a big 30-13 victory over Miami, the mood at Scott Stadium was revelrous. But "Goose Guy" put everyone else to shame. His "performance" went viral, and we asked him what in the world he was thinking

This is bloody hilarious.

THE TAKEAWAY: WISCONSIN - Black Heart Gold Pants
Sure, Iowa just dropped a tough home loss to Wisconsin, 26-24. But how much do we really know? What was really important about losing to the Badgers? What does it all mean, Basil? The Takeaway has the answer.

Look, Petteway can be a great scorer, but he's a volume scorer at best. If the Huskers' offense even wants to have a chance at being somewhat efficient this season, Petteway needs to pass the ball to his teammates -- his assist rate is only 5.4 percent, which is 79th among the 93 Big Ten players that qualify. Sure, it hurts that some of his teammates have started the season in serious shooting slumps -- Walter Pitchford, a 41-percent three-point shooter last season, has made only one of his first 11 shots from behind the arc -- but Petteway needs to give them an opportunity to actually, you know, shoot.

I'm not a good enough basketball guy to tell you whether all this is correct or not.

Barfknecht: Is Husker sellout streak the next cornerstone to tumble? - Omaha.com: Big Red Today - Husker Football News, Schedules And Videos

Imagine if the Huskers hosted Penn State this weekend, and the tired Nittany Lions returned 3,000 tickets from their allotment. Would the beloved, last-thing-we-have-to-hang-on-to Memorial Stadium sellout streak end?

If that's all it takes, then yeah, it's gonna end sometime soon. Is that how you define a sell-out streak? Every last ticket sold? That's a pretty high bar. Most promoters would say that 90% of tickets sold would constitute a sell-out.
