How far will you take it? - The Wrigley Field Ivy

Once spring slowly turns to summer in Chicago, the iconic ivy — which has been around since 1937 — begins to grow along the outfield bricks at Wrigley Field.

If not for daily maintenance from the groundskeepers, the ivy would cover up the distance markers, signage and even spread into the bleachers at the historic home of the Cubs.

Kelly Crull takes a ride around Wrigleyville in the all-new Toyota RAV4 Hybrid bringing you a special Cubs feature on the iconic ivy. Make sure to check back all summer long for more features!

Watch: Huskers' Tim Miles flies with Blue Angels, almost vomits

Well, it's going to be pretty difficult for college basketball to top this line this offseason.

"It's all dry heave, I can't puke."

Nebraska head basketball coach Tim Miles took a ride with the Blue Angels, a very cool and surely very frightening experience, and the fine folks with the Huskers were good enough to post a video of Miles' flight.

While watching the coach experience the take off and the rolls is very cool, there's perhaps no more entertaining moment than when he reaches for the barf bag.

Check it out:

Miles is without a doubt the Big Ten's funniest coach. No wonder he produced this kind of moment.

Great flight, coach!

Former Illini wideout Aaron Moorehead center of college football Twitter controversy

A former Illinois wide receiver has landed himself at the center of college football's latest offseason recruiting controversy.

Aaron Moorehead, who caught 85 passes with the Illini from 1999 to 2002 and won a Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts, is currently the wide receivers coach at Texas A&M. And it's his Twitter account that's getting the attention Thursday after he sent out a string of tweets in the wake of the Class of 2017's No. 1 quarterback recruit decommiting from the Aggies on Wednesday night.

Well, all that tweeting didn't sit so well with some other Texas A&M recruits, one of which decommitted directly because of what Moorehead tweeted.

Moorehead tweeted out an apology Thursday.

A tough day for Texas A&M and a really bad day for the former Illini wideout.
