It’s a story as old as Hugh Hefner: Girl is blinded by the prospects of celebrity; Figures posing nude for a magazine will be “good for her career”; Parents are shocked & awed when they find out about it through a church acquaintance who stumbled upon it while walking the dog (or some such silliness).
But unlike most of the women who end up in the pages of Playboy, Austin Voltin (third from left) at least had the good sense to change her name to Austin Thompson. Of course, now that she’s telling her story to Paul Walsh of the MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE, it sorta blows her cover, but she gets points for trying.
The SEC & Big Ten have developed quite a little rivalry between themselves. Obviously, much of it has to do with Ohio State being bested twice in the BCS title game by Florida & LSU. But now things are really heating up. And when we mean hot, we’re talking Playboy hot.
The October issue of Hef’s mag comes out this Friday, with one of the pictorials featuring the Girls of the Big Ten. However, the cover girl for Friday’s edition isn’t hitting the books in Columbus or Ann Arbor, but in Gainesville. ‘Twas a public relations major from the University of Florida that was chosen to adorn the publication.
So, why a Gator gal instead of a Buckeye babe or Wolverine woman? As DEADSPIN hears from the hottie’s mouth, it’s because Big Ten girls aren’t pretty enough.
