The Big Ten once again will be well represented at the East-West Shrine Game, which will take place Jan. 23 at, gulp, Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando. I'm not sure I'd risk my $5 knees on that joke of a field, so here's hoping the players stay injury free.
The Big Ten has 11 players on the East team, and they are:
Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana
Kyle Calloway, OT, Iowa
Blair White, WR, Michigan State
Mike Kafka, QB, Northwestern
Sherrick McManis, CB, Northwestern
Jim Cordle, OL, Ohio State
Doug Worthington, DT, Ohio State
Jeremy Boone, P, Penn State
Andrew Quarless, TE, Penn State
Mike Neal, DT, Purdue
O'Brien Schofield, DE, Wisconsin
It's important to note that Cordle is listed as a center and Schofield as an outside linebacker on the Shrine Game's official roster. Those are the spots where they are auditioning for the next level.
