(Your Nick Lachey of Big Ten Coaches!)

The INDIANAPOLIS STAR reports today another setback for our favorite former Marlon Brando stunt double, Purdue football coach Joe Tiller: “Roy Roundtree, a nationally ranked receiver and kick returner from Ohio, signed with Michigan on the first day of the college football signing period.
