Did the Big Ten publicly smack down a gossip blogger? Looks like it. Ouch.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is why Twitter is teh awesomest invention since Al Gore invented innerwebs.

The Big Ten disputed that suggestion, and publicly called Travis out via its own Twitter account:

It’s impossible to tell who’s behind the Craigslist ad or whether the offer is real. For all we know, this could be a prank by a crafty SEC fan. IBCR loves a good troll job, but it wasn’t us, I swear!
