Bravo, Big Ten fans.

I can see that many of you already know about this, but it's worth mentioning again.'s Stewart Mandel recently challenged college football fans to show their conference pride by donating to, a terrific charity that helps fund projects in public schools around the country. 

The early results show the Big Ten is trouncing the competition, raising more than $5,300. The SEC, for all the junk they talk, is a distant second place. Another example of Midwestern generosity is the fact the Mid-American Conference ranks third in donations with $1,141. Check out the results.

The competition is fun, but the cause is what really matters here. For those of you who haven't donated, here's a list of projects. You get to choose, which is the real cool part.

Keep up the great work!
