This is a first ballot hall of fame tweet from Butkus. What an incredible comment. The fact he typed it out and hit send is amazing on so many different levels.
I would say leave the World War II analogies to me, but I can’t get enough of this one. It 100% has my stamp of approval.
I’ve spent the past 188 days fighting to save Big 10 football. Today, we accomplished the mission.
Much like the Osama Bin Laden raid or D-Day, you never know when your number will be called to serve. All you hope for is to execute your job and the mission.
We did just that.

For those of you who don’t know, the opening scene of “Saving Private Ryan” shows American troops battling on D-Day, and it’s incredibly graphic.
Butkus apparently believes Joe Burrow’s line might meet a similar fate against the stout defense of the Rams.
