As part of our many journeys covering sports, we encounter interesting, impromptu moments, whether it’s in Iowa City or elsewhere. This week I’m throwing out a few random pictures and videos from the most recent college sports season. Here are a few:
I enjoyed this scene at Welsh-Ryan Arena before the Iowa-Northwestern men's basketball game. Northwestern also honored a wounded veteran, who deservedly received a standing ovation.
Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center has a spaceship feel before night games.
The 9 p.m. start and a league-winless team on Valentine's Day didn't help grow the crowd at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center.
This great sign is near the back of "The Village Bar" in Madison, Wis. The bar's burgers are tremendous and were featured on the Travel Channel. It's an old-school neighborhood bar and very Badger-friendly.
The last 36.6 seconds of this game were pretty nasty to the Iowa Hawkeyes at "The Barn."
I think Purdue's Mackey Arena is the Big Ten's most underrated basketball venue. The atmosphere is tremendous and its recent facelift gives every seat a good view of Gene Keady Court.
