I've written about politics. I've written about the Big Ten Network. But the two had not collided until now.
Fourteen months after launch, the Big Ten Network is coming through on its promise to provide non-athletic content. In their weekly email, they clued me in to the Big Ten Battleground Poll, a web site that follows what voters in the Heartland think--specifically about the presidential race.
And I'm so pround of the good, honest people of the Big Ten, cause in about a month they turned this (Sept. 19):
into this (Oct. 23).
Way to go, Big Ten! Now we just need to make it stick on November 4 (and maybe win a couple bowl games to shut up the fans of the SEC).
