Recruiting Johnny Clay

Apparently, the exceptional Racine tailback has decided which schools will be allowed to woo him:

* Wisconsin
* Iowa
* Ohio State
* Illinois
* Tennessee
* Nebraska

Evidently Mr. Clay favors two types of schools: those in the Big Ten, and those that are coached by patently unlikable men who won't let ethics get in the way of building a winner. Heck, one of those schools combines both attributes!

If the Badgers don't get Mr. Clay, I hope he goes to Illinois. The conference is more fun when the Illini are a factor, especially since those Illini fans are so darn entertaining when they expect to win but wind up losing. Clay would be a great guy around whom to build a program.
