College Football 2011: Rude Welcomings

Arkansas and Wisconsin sports logosBy Cabrone D. Brewer

It was a weekend of welcoming conference newbies around the college football world, but for No.8 Nebraska it was a total Big Ten debut disaster.

Facing No. 7 Wisconsin in a much-anticipated conference showdown at Camp Randall Stadium, Nebraska proved they still have a lot to learn about their new rivals by succumbing to a 48-17 thumping in Madison.

Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez threw three interceptions, while Wisconsin running back Montee Ball ran for 151 yards and four touchdowns — keeping the Badgers’ outstanding scoring machine headed in the right direction as conference play begins to take center stage.

No. 18 Arkansas threw out the SEC welcome mat a year early for No. 14 Texas A&M, giving the Aggies a taste of Southeastern Conference hospitality in a wild 42-38 victory for the Razorbacks.

Texas A&M Aggies Are Considering Joining the SEC

Although it hasn’t been confirmed, rumor has it that Texas A&M will be joining the SEC. An official announcement will probably be made around August 22.

So when would the Aggies make the move? Some say that it could be as early as 2012.

Foursquare Launches Universities 2.0 on Hundreds of College Campuses

Last year, the popular social media app foursquare announced plans to officially partner with more than 20 universities across the nation to help students explore their college campuses and learn about their school’s traditions. The program was a huge success and now than 10 million users joined in on the fun. Now foursquare is making the program even bigger and better with a new and improved version called Universities 2.0.

Universities 2.0 will have all of the fun features that the original foursquare for universities had, such as the ability to check in at various locations on campus, learn about traditions and folklore, and see what your friends thought about various things related to your campus. However, Universities 2.0 will have something that the original program did not have: badges. These badges will represent the schools on foursquare and also could be used on college campuses to advertise that the campus is a foursquare-friendly zone.
