Wiggins to Kansas ...... South Park's Stanley sets Big Ten record

Written by Mike White on .

A year ago, South Park's Bill Stanley set a national high school record in the javelin when he threw 246 feet, 9 inches at the PIAA championships.

Stanley is now in college but still into busting records.

Bill StanleyStanley, a freshman at Ohio State pictured during his high school days, threw the javelin 246-10 at the Big Ten Conference championships this past weekend. The mark not only broke Stanley's own school record, it also set a Big Ten Conference championship meet record.

Stanley is one of the top college throwers in the country.

Wiggins chooses Kansas

The No. 1 basketball player in the country picked his college today - and for once Kentucky coach John Calipari didn't come out the winner.

Andrew Wiggins, a Canada native who played at Huntington Prep (W. Va.), signed with Kansas. Coach Bill Self landed a player who is almost a sure bet to be a "one and done" player. He also considered Kentucky, Florida State and North Carolina.

After Wiggins made his decision, Twitter started lighting up with message to him @22wiggins. This is one of those times where social media shows how many idiots there are out there when it comes to kids picking colleges. Here were a few tweets directed at Wiggins.

"Have fun with all the stupid hillbillies in Lawrence, Kansas @22wiggins ... I hope you tear your ACL's"

"@22wiggins you [expletive]!!! Why would you pick Kansas!! Hope you tear your [expletive] acl the 1st play."

Wow. It's a shame, isn't it? And there are countless other tweets similar to those.
