Yesterday was the most pointless day of class I’ve had in college, but between my four naps and day-dreaming of having classes with these girls I came up with some of the best links around the web for this random Tuesday morning. [via Thunder Treats]

  • Big news for the Big Ten: according to reports (and some student athlete Twitter profiles), the Pittsburgh Panthers may become the Big Ten’s 12th team. However, I do take issue with Ben Maller’s statement that Pitt is “an east coast presence” for the Big Ten. Apparently the dude doesn’t own a map, because Pitt is definitely closer to the honky Midwest than any sort of coastline.

  • Former Lions offensive coordinator and general crazymotherfucker4lyfe Mike Martz is set to become the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears. Despite his struggles in the D, Martz is/was generally recognized as a quarterback guru across the NFL. He was the OC in St. Louis when Kurt Warner stopped bagging groceries to win a Super Bowl and it’s kind of scary to think about what he’s capable of with a talent like Jay Cutler to work with.

“It’s great, isn’t it? It’s called goaltending,” coach Mike Babcock said. “He battled and gave us a chance.”
  • According to Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies, “there’s going to be a random pirate in the newest baseball video games.” For some reason I was expecting this guy, but the real story is probably more interesting.

Rob’s Highlight of the Day

Today’s highlight is a bit of a weird one. Stefano Okaka scores a sweet no-look goal with his heel, but the real highlight is the announcer who perfectly imitates a chihuahua for about 15 seconds after Okaka’s game-winner. [via Dirty Tackle]
