08:17 AM ET 06.09 | Perhaps baseball references are apt in this case. As the University of Wisconsin football program made its pitch this week to land North Carolina State transfer Russell Wilson, Ohio State was waving goodbye to the troubled Terrelle Pryor era. Those two significant developments involving quarterbacks -- which unfolded at basically the same time -- could have a drastic impact on the Big Ten Conference landscape in the fall. Wilson arrived in Madison on Tuesday and finished up his visit prior to 4 p.m. on Wednesday. "It was a home run -- a grand slam in baseball terms," a UW source said about the visit.

I guess Wisconsin's going rate is more than 180k.

With a real good QB WISC can easily turn into a very scary matchup for any team. If this pans out WISC should probably edge out NEB as the favorite to win the conference.

We have a Perkins close to my job... The food is good but the service is soooooooooooo slow!!!!!!!!!! They need to hire more waitresses...Not a Denny's person myself

Denny's and Waffle House are both 3 am drunken rest stops. Haven't been drunk at 3AM in many years so have not stepped foot in either. Only been to a Perkins once and it was OK but nothing special.
