Keeping some pretty nice company there, too.

And Nebraska’s the new Bully of the Big Ten, huh? Can’t wait to see how the Big Ten feels about that title.

    its referring to crick as the new bully – not nebraska

    1. Tim says:

      I disagree – it doesn’t say Crick, the big ten’s new bully, it says Nebraska, the big ten’s new bully.

      1. Rob says:

        It says DT Jared Crick above Nebraska. Get some glasses.

        1. Holly says:

          It says nebraska….not Crick. They named all in photo. Really its a pretty obvious interpretation.

          1. Matt says:

            Calm down he was just kidding

          2. Drew says:

            Wrong. Every player has their name beside them.

            The title of the magazine states:

            The New Bully of the Big Ten.

  2. jhudson says:

    Looks like they do regionalize this, but only by rotating the order of the guys. Here’s the Southeast cover:

  3. Kellyk says:

    It’s referring to NEBRAKSA as the new bully of the Big 10. On the Southeast cover, it shows the same guys but the headline is under Trent Richardson “ALABAMA — Ready to Roll”. Hope SI is right! GO BIG RED!

  4. Steve` says:

    Crick’s shoes are half RED and half BLACK……….are they all wearing those this year?

  5. zach in new orleans says:

    Does this remind anyone of the old red alert SI cover? Think it had Nebraska, USC (SoCal), Bama, Okie and someone else.

  6. Sally says:

    Hold on to your helmuts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    1. Sally says:

      Opps that is “helmets” Shouldn’t have had that glass of wine
