Check out's 2014 All-Big Ten Teams

BTN released the 2014 All-Big Ten Teams and individual award winners on #BTNLive’s All-Conference Selection Special on Monday night. Before the teams were made official, offered their teams and superlative winners. See them in this post.

Here’s how this worked:’s Tom Dienhart, Brent Yarina, Sean Merriman and the Big Ten Geeks Josh Reed and Mike Portscheller all listed their teams and award winners. Players received three points for every first-team distinction, two for second-team and one for first-team. Totals were added up, and the five highest vote-getters formed the first team, and so on.

John Beilein is the coach of the year. Apologies to Tim Miles, whose Nebraska squad has overachieved no doubt, but so did Michigan, to the freaking tune of 15-3 minus their best big man. People were trying to find enough wins for Michigan to sneak onto the bubble after a 6-4 start following a loss to Arizona. All the Wolverines did was win 17 of their last 20, including three straight over top-10 teams, two of them on the road over top-3 squads. Only team to defeat every one of the other 11 B1G schools. 7-2 road conference record.

You get the point.

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 1:53pm EDT Said:

Tim Miles?
What does Michigan’s coach need to do to get respect?
Last year Bo Ryan got it and this year JB has a great season and gets passed over again.

Wes on 3/10/2014 @ 2:00pm EDT Said:

COACH OF THE YEAR: Tim Miles, Nebraska???

I get that Nebraska has been hot lately, but how do you make a case for him above Beilein? The man lost a national player of the year/1st round pick, another 1st round pick, and a preseason All-American and still won the B1G by 3 games.

    Brent Yarina, Senior Editor on 3/10/2014 @ 3:04pm EDT Said:

    The final tally was Miles (3) and Beilein (2). You can’t go wrong either way.

Adam Boone on 3/10/2014 @ 2:37pm EDT Said:

tim miles did a good job, but beilein lost two first round draft picks and a pre-season all amerian and etc etc…

Michael Pitts (@mjpitts) on 3/10/2014 @ 2:40pm EDT Said:

I present to you the case for John Beilein:

Lose Naismith Award Winner
Lose pre-season All-American center before conference play starts
Projected third in conference pre-season
Has most difficult schedule (MSU x2, Wisc x2, Neb x2, Iowa x2, @Ohio)
Wins conference outright by three games
Significant player development

Both deserve it, honestly. I don’t think you can argue against either coach’s accomplishments this season.

Josh on 3/10/2014 @ 3:10pm EDT Said:

Case for Tim Miles:

Only second season in the program.
Inheriting a tradition of losing and mediocrity
Starting with 0 nationally ranked players
Picked to finish last in the Big 10
Secured a fourth seed with first round buy in the tournament
Will most likely get Nebraskas first bid to NCAA tournament in decades

Kim Hart Morsett on 3/10/2014 @ 3:13pm EDT Said:

At least Michael Pitts put Nebraska x2 in as part of the “most difficult schedule”.

Gary on 3/10/2014 @ 3:15pm EDT Said:

1. Michigan lost at Nebraska, but the some of the players also wore striped jerseys.
2. Nebraska was picked dead last in the league and finished 4th.
3. Michigan has top level recruits.
4. Nebraska had to develop juco bench warmers. That’s called coaching.
5. Tim Miles would’ve done better with Michigan than Bee-line would’ve done with Nebraska.

Dan Jackson on 3/10/2014 @ 3:16pm EDT Said:

Tim Miles is far above and beyond any other coach in the conference. He took a team picked dead last in the Big Ten and knocked off two top 10 teams, was within one point of a perfect home record and are all but assured a spot in the dance. No other coach in the Big 10 comes close to doing what Miles did. This pick should not even be close.

What should make my post even more credible is the fact I am not a Husker homer. In fact, I live in Hawaii and graduated from UCLA in ’91.

Faux Dave Griek (@FauxDaveGriek) on 3/10/2014 @ 3:30pm EDT Said:

Michigan was a pre-season to 5 conference team …. .Nebraska was a near unanimous preseason last place conference team. . . . . Michigan won the conference-GREAT, but Nebraska goes into the B1G tournament as the FOUR seed . . . only a Michigan grad or dunderhead would vote for Miles as CoY. . . .its not even close. ..

Brandon Carlson on 3/10/2014 @ 3:32pm EDT Said:

Well deserved for Miles and Petteway! Argument for Miles here is that MI still has a team full of high school all-Americans. Nebraska has a roster full of 3 star recruits and transfer students. NE beating 2 top 10 teams with one on the road > MI beating 3 top ten teams. Again they have a roster full of future NBA players. Miles deserves it over JB. Good call. However still trying figure out why Shavon Shields was left out of the 3 all big ten teams…

Craig H on 3/10/2014 @ 3:34pm EDT Said:

Tim Miles inherited 2 transfers from D1 schools who had the luxury of playing within his system last season while they sat out a year per NCAA rules.

John Beilein inherited 2 freshman with ZERO college experience and lost 2 players to the NBA’s first round draft. And also lost a pre-season All American before conference play even started.

Michigan finished 4-0 on the road against teams Wisc, MSU, Neb & Ohio State. That’s the teams that finished 2nd-5th if you are keeping track. 6-1 overall against those same teams. And they won the conference by 3 games!

Tim Miles is a nice story but it’s not even a close argument for coach of the year.

Tim Gibb on 3/10/2014 @ 3:35pm EDT Said:

Michael Pitts said it best. Both are deserving. They’re unique in that the accomplishments can’t just be compared by Wins vs Losses and Quality Wins, RPI, etc. Beilein reloaded and Miles made Nebraska relevant in year 2 when picked to finish last in the league.

Ed on 3/10/2014 @ 3:45pm EDT Said:

Here’s where Miles gets it over Beilein. Yes, Michigan lost a lot both in the off season and early on. He replaces those guys with several high power recruits, and off they go. Nebraska had NOTHING for talent when Miles took over. Petteway and Pitchford were complete unknowns. Miles has turned around an entire state, not just a program. Michigan could have finished anywhere from 1st to 5th and no one would be that surprised. Nebraska was, justifiably, picked dead last. No contest, my friends.

AJ Morgan on 3/10/2014 @ 3:59pm EDT Said:

There should be a Big Ten 6th Man of The Year and I say it’s Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine before he was a starter, GO GREEN

devnet on 3/10/2014 @ 4:25pm EDT Said:

Guys, Tim Miles has done more with less…that’s why. Nebraska was picked to finish DEAD LAST in the conference. They started 0-4. Now look at them….4th in the conference, knocking on the NCAA Tourney door…knocked off 2 top 10 teams, won a couple of others against top 20 teams.

Everyone knew Michigan would be good this year even with the losses…but no one could have forseen what Tim Miles did with Nebraska.

Now, you can cry all you want about this…but Nebraska hasn’t had over 10 wins in a conference since the 1960’s. I’d say that means something special has happened.

jared on 3/10/2014 @ 4:26pm EDT Said:

Guys, the fact that Michigan lost two 1st round draft picks and still had the talent to achieve what they did is kind of the point. How many 1st round draft picks does Nebraska have? Where were they picked to finish and where was Michigan picked? Nebraska rose from the basement to 4 seed without a true forward, short at least one big man, and two players that are considered to put up a lot of points in a game if they sneak in more than one basket. Michigan should thank their lucky stars they didn’t come to the Vault later in the season and they were able to barely beat Nebraska by 1 point. Arguments can fly either way, but Miles is every bit as deserving as anyone considering this is only his first year with a full scholarship squad and he lost his third leading point scorer.

Beilein has done outstanding, but who did more with what they have?

Bill on 3/10/2014 @ 4:27pm EDT Said:

Just for arguments sake Beilien had a team that was picked to finish either 2/3 in the BIG and finished 1st. Miles had a team picked to finish 12th and finished 4th.

Beilien still has the BPOY, Robinson III, and 2 5 Star Freshmen.

JoYo on 3/10/2014 @ 4:38pm EDT Said:

Miles definitely more deserving than Beilein.

Big 10 from Iowa City on 3/10/2014 @ 4:38pm EDT Said:

Michigan fans really are the worst…….

Tim on 3/10/2014 @ 4:42pm EDT Said:

At least a bit funny to hear the people in Michigan crying about B1G Coach of the Year. There are many excuses (injuries, NBA, etc), but taking a team playing in the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME from last season to a conference championship the next isn’t that incredible.

Taking a team that has finished DEAD LAST in two different conferences for many years, hasn’t PLAYED in the NCAA tournament THIS CENTURY, and picked by virtually everyone to again finish DEAD LAST this season…then finishing in fourth place in the B1G is a far bigger achievement.

The job Beilein did this year was very good. The job Tim Miles has done with Nebraska’s doormat basketball program is completely unbelievable.

Tim Miles: B1G Coach of the Year.

Michael Pitts (@mjpitts) on 3/10/2014 @ 4:50pm EDT Said:

I don’t think arguing against either candidate is productive. Both are worthy.

Beilein has been in the same spot as Miles is this year, exceeding little to no expectations and fielding a highly competitive team, but never won Coach of the Year.

People want to talk about pre-season expectations, too. Keep in mind that the media expectations to finish third in the conference were based on having Mitch McGary, which they did not all conference season long.

Also, Michigan’s road to 15-3 in the includes nine games against the top half of the conference (Wisc / MSU / Nebraska / Ohio / Iowa) whereas Nebraska only had to play seven. Michigan went 7-2 in those games, including 4-1 on the road. Nebraska, 3-4 and 1-3 on the road.

Again, both men are deserving of the award. Both did things that no one in the media (or outside of their respective locker rooms) thought was possible this season. I am bias because I am a Michigan fan, but Beilein didn’t get it two years ago when they shared the conference championship. He should this year.

Michael Pitts (@mjpitts) on 3/10/2014 @ 4:52pm EDT Said:

And for those saying “Well, Beilein had the player of the year in the conference”, Stauskas certainly didn’t come into the season as the favorite for that award.

Neither did another first team all-conference player is Petteway.

Just a testament to the coaching job that both men have done.

Gary L. Hale on 3/10/2014 @ 4:55pm EDT Said:

How does the Defensive player of the year not make at least a 3rd team selection. That is beyond stupid.

Tim Reavis on 3/10/2014 @ 4:57pm EDT Said:

Anyone who says no on Miles is really ignorant as to how horrific the Huskers basketball program was a mere season ago when Miles took over one of THE WORST HC jobs in major college basketball. Let me repeat that. Tim Miles took over one of the THE WORST jobs in major college hoops last season. The guy Is a miracle worker. If Miles doesn’t win, it’s basically a crime against humanity.

Kara on 3/10/2014 @ 5:04pm EDT Said:

What Coach Miles has done with this Husker Team is amazing. Yes Nebraska has two transfers, but who would’ve thought Terran who was averaging maybe 5 points per game before he came to Nebraska to now averaging what 18-19 points per game. Nebraska’s starting lineup normally consists of two maybe three sophomores, a freshman and a senior. This group out there is a young group of guys and with coach Miles, the possibilities are endless! I can’t wait to see them next year now that they have bought into what Coach Miles has been preaching/coaching!

Brandon on 3/10/2014 @ 5:08pm EDT Said:

Tim Miles does not have near the talent Michigan does, its his 2nd year here, and the skers were picked to finish dead last…They finished alone in 4th, have a first round bye, and had a few games gone the other way this last week, the skers could be sitting at 2nd or 3rd.

Michigan was picked to finish in the top 3, that was the expectation to begin the season, they did so, they met expectations…. Tim Miles and crew exceeded expectations 100 times over and did so with probably one the least talented and unknown lineups in the big 10.

Michigan is still bitter about their national championship they split with us in ’97…I would like to touch on that real quick for the Michigan Fan base. NU went undefeated, had a tougher schedule and beat the #3 team in the country in the Orange Bowl by more than 3 touchdowns. Michigan had a less tough schedule, went undefeated, and barely beat the #8 team in the country by only 5 points…Please tell me how your resume is better than the skers was that year.

Raymond Tylenda on 3/10/2014 @ 5:15pm EDT Said:

I think most Michigan fans would sympathize with Miles winning the COY if Bellein had been given the same recognition when HIS team ( just a couple of years ago) came out of nowhere to share the B1G title.

Ryan on 3/10/2014 @ 5:28pm EDT Said:

This is a healthy discussion on the COTY candidates. You could make an argument for both to be in the national (not just conference) COTY discussion. And heck, while you’re at it Bo Ryan hasn’t been too bad either. This is a well-coached league. The bar is high.

Donald Holmen on 3/10/2014 @ 5:44pm EDT Said:

Bo Ryan should be coach of the year

Dave on 3/10/2014 @ 6:06pm EDT Said:

That’s ok, Beilein will be the National Coach of the Year.

Pat on 3/10/2014 @ 6:25pm EDT Said:

I agree with Donald Holman. Bo Ryan should be Coach Of The Year AGAIN. Year after year he continues to produce very good teams with mostly players that the so called elite coaches around the country don,t want. He takes these players and coaches them in his system which is a WINNING system. That’s what a coach of the year is supposed to do. He also started the year with only 3 players that had major minutes last year. Wisconsin basketball; Substance Above Flash.

Big Ten from Cedar Rapids on 3/10/2014 @ 6:36pm EDT Said:

Brandon, your inferiority complex is showing. 😉 Whether you agree or disagree with this year’s CotY selection, the fact that you feel a NC debate in football from 16 years ago is at all relevant to this discussion only highlights your insecurities. Otherwise, by your reasoning, we should look at preseason expectations for 1997 to determine which undefeated team overachieved more and is therefore more deserving of the NC. 😉 (HINT: Nebraska was #6, Michigan was #14). Yet another irrelvant aspect of the 1997 NC discussion, maybe you should just stick to the merits of these two basketball coaches and stop living in the past.

Frank on 3/10/2014 @ 7:00pm EDT Said:

Brandon — Nebraska should have lost against Missouri. That was an illegal play. Game over you lose.

Frank on 3/10/2014 @ 7:02pm EDT Said:

Big 10 from Iowa City — one might say Iowa fans are the worst … just ask some of the Hawkeye players.

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 7:06pm EDT Said:

How many McDonalds All Americans does Beilein have?
Michigan’s recruits come in less heralded than Ohio State’s, Indiana’s, MSU’s and even Illinois’ and Purdue’s.
Beilien won a Big 10 title with Zach Novak, Stu Douglass, Jordan Morgan and Trey Burke, all who were not highly recruited by multiple schools.
The point you tried to make had no merit at all.

Samuel Harris on 3/10/2014 @ 7:10pm EDT Said:

Gary — that’s a lot of arrogance out of a guy whose team is still not a sure thing to make the Tournament. A loss to OSU in 4/5 matchup and the Huskers could very well be NIT-bound. Tim Miles is a good coach, yes, but he doesn’t hold a candle to John Beilein. To say that he would do a better job of coaching Michigan is completely asinine and smacks of someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. I guess you forgot the complete beatdown handed to Nebraska at the Crisler Center last month. We’ll see how well Nebraska does next season when they have expectations.

TLass on 3/10/2014 @ 7:11pm EDT Said:

John Beilien certainly deserved Big10 Coach of the Year. But I am not surprised with this result given that BTN sponsored this vote!

    Brent Yarina, Senior Editor on 3/10/2014 @ 7:22pm EDT Said:

    We have nothing to do with the votes. We just announce what the coaches and media picked.

Randy Kuhns on 3/10/2014 @ 7:16pm EDT Said:

Really funny how all through the season you never hear anything from Husker fans but now they all just come pouring out of the woodwork

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 7:23pm EDT Said:

Perception clouds logical thinking for many.
Michigan has a roster full of high school All Americans is not close to correct,
Caris LeVert was going to attend a MAC school, not Ohio State.
Nik Stauskas wasn’t even his school’s best player.
Jordan Morgan was not that good in high school.
Jon Horford was not that good.
Glenn Robinson was passed over by Purdue despite his name.
Andrew Dakich, Mark Donnall, Sean L were hardly being recruited.
Derrick Walton wasn’t even considered the top player in Michigan last year.
Trey Burke couldn’t get Ohio State to look at him.
Tim Hardaway Jr. was not highly recruited at all in Florida.
So where are all those star recruits at?

    theotherbigone on 3/10/2014 @ 11:59pm EDT Said:

    Seriously – do you take stupid pills?? Michigan doesn’t look at mediocre players – they have the pick of the crop and have had long before Beilien was on their radar. Just because you did not know about these guys does not mean they weren’t good. But, of course, you are John Bs recruiting buddy so you know – right?? John B recruited these guys for only one reason – they were good.

Thomas Williams on 3/10/2014 @ 7:32pm EDT Said:

Really??? Nik Stauskus POY over Petteway. Give me a break as he isn’t anywhere near as good. Check the stats. Good luck Michigan at beating us in the BIG Tournament FAT CHANCE!!!

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 7:57pm EDT Said:

Last year Michigan was the youngest team in the NCAA Tournament and made the NCAA title game.
Go back all time in college basketball and see how many times teams have done that and you’ll be lucky to find 5.
This year’s team is the second youngest among power conference schools and they’ve accomplished things that some of Michigan’s greatest teams never accomplished and I’m talking the great Cazzie Russell teams of the 1960s, Johnny Orr’s teams in the 1970s, the 1989 group that won the national title or the Fab 5 1990s teams and last year’s team.
All those teams competed for national titles and this group is in the conversation because of their outstanding coaching staff.
Don’t diminish what this team has accomplished yet continue to credit Bo Ryan and Tom Izzo annually. Neither of those two coaches develop young players like Michigan’s head coach has done the last four years and restored that program nationally.

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 8:08pm EDT Said:

Inconsistency continues toward Mchigan’s head coaches and tis goes back to Steve Fisher’s days.
In 2011 when Michigan rallied from a 1-6 Big 10 start to make the NCAA tournament while sweeping overwhelming favorite MSU that year, why didn’t Beilien get the same love as Miles got this year?
Afterall, he did it coming off a losing year, he lost Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims, Darius Morris came out of nowhere and he had a unknown freshman named Tim Hardaway Jr.
In 2012 he won the Big 10 with 6-4 Zach Novak playing power forward against bigger and stronger players and athletes and with a unknown freshman named Trey Burke.
What I see is Michigan’s coaches get no credit when they defy odds and win but are accused of having great talent to justify why they win and the facts prove otherwise.

Scott on 3/10/2014 @ 8:10pm EDT Said:

Both coaches far exceeded expectations, but the tie breaker comes down to head to head competition. At Nebraska: Michigan 71, Nebraska 70. The only visiting team to win in Lincoln. At Ann Arbor: Michigan 79, Nebraska 50.

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 8:18pm EDT Said:

When Darius Morris came to Michigan, he wasn’t seen a a NBA player who could change a program.
When Tim Hardaway Jr. came to Michigan, he wasn’t seen as a first team All Big 10 performer who helped his team compete for a national title only to become a first round NBA pick.
Certainly folks in Columbus, Ohio didn’t see Trey Burke becoming the nation’s best player, a player who transformed Michigan basketball and becoming a NBA Lottery pick after two years.
Who saw Nik Stauskas in two years becoming a All American, Big 10 POY Award winner and possible NBA first round pick?
And I haven’t even mentioned Caris Levert’s development.
Show me where Thad Matta, Tom Creen, Tom Izzo or Bo Ryan has had as much success with less heralded players.
This is coaching and developing untapped talent.

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 8:46pm EDT Said:

You are talking about the 1997 football season and your facts are incorrect.
Michigan had the toughest schedule in 1997 and beat 6 Top 20 teams that year in Colorado, Michigan State, Penn State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Washington State.
Penn State, Ohio State and WSU were Top 10 team.
Michigan had the nation’s top defense and the defense never allowed 20 points to any opponent. Iowa score 24 and 7 came against the special teams.
Michigan was the only team without a bye week that year.
Common opponents that year and Michigan easily beat Baylor and Colorado that Nebraska struggled with.
Michigan’s last four games that year were a blowout at No.2 Penn State, whose only score came against Michigan’s reserves, won at No.16 Wisconsin by double figures, beat No.4 Ohio State and beat No.8 WSU-a teamthat averaged 42, yet scored 16.
Nebraska needed a lllegal play to beat Missouri.
Then your cowardly QB (as Kate McEwen/Lawrence Phillips) Scott Frost had to beg for coaches to vote for Nebraska.

@negele – are you ignorant or just making it up as you go. Trey Burke was not highly recruited? He was a Parade All-Amerocan and Ohio Mr. basketball. Glenn Robinson III was an ESPN and Rivals top 20. Get your facts straight.

Gary L. Hale on 3/10/2014 @ 10:11pm EDT Said:

Year after year Wisc doesn’t win the Big ten, doesn’t win the Big Ten tourn. Gets bounced in the field of 32 often, so doesn’t win a NCAA Regional. They get talent and have talent every year…to be named Coach of the year you must win something, not finish close the most number of times. Bo Ryan wins the most consistent coach that accepts 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place more than anybody. He is not nor should he ever be a coach of the year. Win something…then you can put claims on CoY!!

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 11:38pm EDT Said:

@thomas williams.
Stauskas led the Big 10 in three point shooting. His three point percentage is better than Petteway’s overall shooting.
Stauskas was the most efficient shooter and scorer in the league.
Stauskas was the only Big 10 player in the Top 10 in shooting overall, free throw shooting and three point shooting.
Stauskas, unlike Petteway, led his team in assists and his assists to turnovers far exceeds that of Petteway.
Stauskas led all Big 10 players in 20 point games this year.
Stauskas was at his best against the best Big 10 teams.
In a 29 point blowout over Petteway, he took just 3 shots while getting a career high 8 assists.
Stauskas is going to be the only Big 10 player to make All American this year.
Four times Stauskas was the conference player of the week, more than anyone else.
Stauskas in three straight wins over ranked teams led Michigan to wins with great shooting and passing.
Stauskas helped Michigan beat every Big 10 team this year, something Petteway could not do.
So what exactly did Petteway do this year that was better than Stauskas?
Please explain with logic and don’t base it on emotion.

Trent on 3/10/2014 @ 11:43pm EDT Said:

Just so we are all on the same page here, the B1G coaches picked Tim Miles for Coach of the year and the media picked John Beilein. They are Co-Big Ten Coaches of the Year.

Negele on 3/10/2014 @ 11:48pm EDT Said:

Nik Stauskas was the MVP in Puerto Rico despite Michigan losing the title game.
Nik Stauskas is the Big 10 Player of the Year despite not even being picked preseason first team.
Nik Stauskas is the only consensus pick for All Big 10.
Nik Stauskas is the only Big 10 player to make the two All American teams selected today.
Nik Stauskas is the only Big 10 player in the Top 10 in all the shooting stats.
Of the 5 first team All Big 10 players selected, Nik Stauskas is the only one who led his team in scoring, assists, minutes played, foul shooting, three point shooting, assists to turnovers while taking the biggest shots in close games and making them.
With all of that, folks have the audacity to suggest Stauskas wasn’t the top player?

dom on 3/11/2014 @ 1:21am EDT Said:

its not even close, miles deserved HCOY. Michigan over achieved without their big man. But Nebraska was picked dead last to finish in the B1G and finished 4th and are probably in the tournament where they haven’t been since 1998.

JP on 3/11/2014 @ 10:02am EDT Said:

Even Belein aaid Miles should win. Michigan fans…SMH.

JP on 3/11/2014 @ 10:04am EDT Said:

Even Begas had NNebraska as a 10 point favorite on a neutral site against Michigan in 1997. Vegas even had the #3 team Florida State as a favorite over Michigan. The bowl teams Michigan played were a combined 0-6. Nebraska trounced Peyton Manning. Michigan squeeked one out against Ryan Leaf.

Negele on 3/11/2014 @ 7:56pm EDT Said:

@ray charles-Trey Burke as recruited by Penn State, hardly a basketball school and he committed to them before he backed out and signed with Michigan.
Ohio State didn’t even want him despite signing two of his high school teammates.
Glenn Robinson III couldn’t even get a look from Purdue, his father’s school.
Get your info straight.

Negele on 3/11/2014 @ 8:07pm EDT Said:

@Jp-o Vegas decides who wins games huh?
Nebraska in 1997 was average defensively and Michigan’s run defense would have stopped their run offense and Frost would have had no success throwing against that defense.
Nebraska gave up 38 points to Missouri and two Big 12 teams that scored 45 points combined against Nebraska, scored just 6 combined against Michigan.
Michigan didn’t have to beg for votes nor did they need bad refs to beat Missouri.
