In case you missed it THON was this past weekend and it was wildly successful in its pursuit to raise funds for Four Diamonds and children with cancer. It also says something about the legacy of THON when a total of $9,770,332.32 can possibly be viewed as a disappointment. The football team performed admirably, winning the Pep Rally competition over the women's soccer team in the final, but charity doesn't stop once their playing career ends. Anthony Zettel announced he will be raising money for Uplifting Athletes for each rep he records during the bench press at the NFL Combine next week. If you'd like to assist him in his efforts, he has a donation page set up at https://pledgeit.org/zettel. Meanwhile, out in Seattle, Jordan Hill made a local foster child's birthday special when he made a surprise appearance and delivered some gifts.
Um, Is This Good? In a topic best explained by Eli, SB Nation compared every FBS school to a Pokemon. Penn State did not fare well, I think? I've been told they drew the only Pokemon that's actually weaker than the one it evolved from. I've understood virtually nothing I've written here.
The Saddest Man In The World: Colin Cowherd (yes, he's still a thing, if a media personality with an ever-shrinking audience can still be considered a thing) tries to stay relevant doling out his NFL Draft advice. His biggest advice? Avoid Christian Hackenberg! This was all following his endorsement of Carson Wentz as first round pick accompanied with great insights like "I have not seen a lot of him," "I don't know much about him," and "I don't have strong opinions on him, because all I've seen are he is also 6'4"-6'5"." Don't worry, I listened to it, so you don't have to, he's just that desperate for anyone to pay attention. As we said on twitter...
If you need any proof that Christian Hackenberg will be a great pro, Colin Cowherd hates him https://t.co/iYCft9mMOl— Black Shoe Diaries (@BSDtweet) February 22, 2016
