Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! The 'Cats were in the Pennsylvania Capitol Building yesterday to be honored, but Jay Wright took it a step further and pledged his support to the "It's On Us" campaign with Governor Tom Wolf. If you're not familiar with this cause, it's a movement to prevent sexual assault in our society.
It's been a large part of SB Nation for a while, and we're all fervent supporters of the cause here. There's been some not so great news in collegiate atheltics on this topic recently, and so I'm proud to see Jay raising awareness.
Good on ya, Coach!
And now, the "news."
