I'm not going to bag on Paul McCartney, the guy changed rock and roll forever (although I'm sure someone will disagree in the comments section), but how easy it is for any performer at any level to come into PBA and start a "Go Big Red" or "Husker Power" chant?

Starting Five: Sleeper All-American players in 2014-15
1. Terran Petteway, Nebraska: Simply put, this junior can score. But his stat line (18.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg) hardly shows his impact for the on-the-rise Cornhuskers, who made the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1998 last season with Petteway as their catalyst.

As Northwestern fans we’re a bit self-conscious of other fan’s opinions. Forever the perennial underrated underdog, we long for respect among college football’s elite, even though we’ve only established ourselves as a very respectable program during the Pat Fitzgerald era.

Another Potential Penn State Uniform Change

Teary James Franklin told Vanderbilt 'I'm not leaving' and then promptly left

"He repeatedly told us, 'I'm not leaving, no matter what. You guys don't have to worry,' " Butler said. "He even took it as far as breaking down in tears like he always does. "He was saying 'I'm not leaving,' and then right after the ball game (BBVA Compass Bowl), I mean no warning, no nothing, he just disappeared."

SEC Media Days: Mike Slive Flexes His Muscle - Roll 'Bama Roll

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive opened the festivities with the usual talk about how wonderful the SEC was, is, and will be. Blah, blah, blah, SEC Network... He quoted Dwight Eisenhower, Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali along the way. This took up the first 14 minutes of his speech. The only part worth listening to is the last 7+ minutes.

If the SEC is talking about change, maybe something magnificent will really happen.
