When you step back and take a look at it, college football is full of odd and comical minutiae. That's what makes it great. Every program has quirks that make it unique and also laughable to the outside world.
So each week during the 2015 season, Ben Goren will explore the weird ticks of Northwestern's opponents. Because... well, because Every Week is Hate Week.
This week, we have Wisconsin.
If you didn't already know, one of the prerequisites of being a college football writer today is that any time you go to Wisconsin you need to Tweet, at the beginning of the fourth quarter, about how amazing Wisconsin's "Jump Around" tradition is.
"OMG!!! The fans are making the stadium shake!"
"CAMP RANDALL IS FIRE EMOJI!!!! I LOVE THIS PLACE!"
Ben Goren is on a mission to end this... because he knows that "Put Your Hands Up in the Air" is just about the most storied tradition ever. Way better than that dangerous stunt Wisconsin pulls.
