It was in the section that they did for each conference where they asked three players various questions like "First car you'd buy in the NFL," or "Playstation or Xbox." The most disturbing response was what two of the Big Ten players said when asked for their favorite musician or group. Most of the responses of the other players asked were not surprising, from Kanye West, Jay-Z, Beyonce, to Kenny Chesney. But Iowa's Drew Tate, and Penn State's Dan Connor had me wondering where the kids of today are headed when they responded with Journey and Phil Collins, respectively. Tate can maybe be forgiven, as Journey did see a bit of a retro renaissance in 2005 with "Don't Stop Believing" appearing in South Park, Family Guy, and Laguna Beach, along with being the theme song for the World Series-winning Chicago White Sox.
But Phil Freakin' Collins? He wasn't even cool back when he was popular in the '80s. Connor should be embarrassed - this is a bigger pox on the Penn State program than Curtis Enis. And if that's not bad enough, when asked "One word to describe Paris Hilton," Connor responded with "Uh, classy?"
That's even scarier than Nebraska's Zac Taylor's response of "Awesome." Because I can think of a lot of words to describe Paris Hilton and "classy" isn't even in the top
