As this article from Purdue Sports.com states, "The Big Ten Conference endowed a Medal of Honor in 1914 to be awarded annually at each university to the student-athlete demonstrating the greatest proficiency in scholarship and athletics."
Even more nifty -- an continuing the tradition of showing us how Rob seems to have that can-do-nothing-wrong style -- is that Rob's dad won the award at Illinois in 1976 as a tennis player. Remember, this award is not only for basketball, but for all athletes.
Rob continues to make us proud and receive well-deserved accolades.
