Can we officially stop caring about this now? Cuz it's obviously dumb and only getting dumber.

Greatest sports icon of the last century, but Big Ten icon # 3. Classic.

So, who does that leave?  Magic and Crazy Legs Hirsch?   I thought this was to be about student-athletes, not student-athletesandwhattheydidinthepros.

Owens stuck it to Hitler in his own back yard and became an international hero for it.  Magic Johnson stuck it to anything that moved and got HIV for it.   Hmmm, who's the bigger Icon?  Good job B1G!
