Upon postponing his debut album, Talib Kweli stepped onto the hip-hop scene with rapper Mos Def, creating the duo known as Black Star. The pair quickly became the game’s warranted political justice gurus, lighting up two successful solo careers with social commentary and political strife fueling the release.

As a kid, Derek Watt and his brothers T.J. and J.J. would play football with their two neighbors, utilizing three full backyards to create a field as close to a real gridiron as possible. Oftentimes, the Watt brothers would play catch or games of 500 with their dad or uncle throwing the pigskin. “We had some little mini pad sets, like any kid does, we were out there doing one-on-one stuff, T.J. and I,” Watt said. “I don’t remember if we ever went up against J.J. That was a little jump for us.”
There’s no question that Rafael Gaglianone deserves an enormous amount of credit for Wisconsin’s 23-21 win over Nebraska last Saturday. To have the mental fortitude to put two misses behind him, including one just 1:22 earlier is incredible to see from a college kicker, especially a sophomore from Brazil who’s gained infamy more for his celebrations than his placekicking skills.

Monday night, Democrats across Wisconsin cheered as Gov. Scott Walker officially announced he was ending his 2016 presidential campaign. The decision came after recent polls showed Walker with less than 1 percent of the vote. However, if you are a Democrat, now is not the time to be celebrating. In fact, you should be bracing yourself for the worst. It all comes down to one man: Marco Rubio.
What makes a great musical? More importantly, what makes a musical great when it’s already set in New York, has the turbulence of when the city was developing and masterfully reveals to us the beginnings of it being the place where dreams are heralded. “Newsies” simply adds the whimsical charm of misunderstood rebellious young men, leading a ragtag group of lost boys to a cause that marks the beginning of change. The musical is based on the 1992 Disney movie that starred a young Christian Bale, which sadly paled in comparison to other Disney masterpieces of the time such as “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “Tarzan” etc. So considering its history you would think the musical stood no hope of being such a hit, that is if it hadn’t immediately generated a large cult following that called themselves “Fansies.” The rest, as the cliché says, is history.
As rain flooded the streets Thursday night, so did hundreds of people who marched through a torrential downpour, shouting chants like “out of the halls and into the streets, we won’t be raped, we won’t be beat” and “however we dress, wherever we go, yes means yes and no means no.”
After a relatively disappointing opening weekend, the Big Ten bounced back with a solid Week 2. Big Ten teams went 12-2, including a 3-1 mark against teams from the Power Five conferences (though in fairness, one of those teams was Iowa State). As a result, you’ll notice an incredible lack of movement in this week’s power rankings.
