Ten B1G teams land on ESPN's Fab 50 for 2014-15

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman released his Fab 50 for 2014-15, a ranking of his top 50 men’s hoops teams, on Tuesday. Ten Big Ten teams make the list, including newcomer Maryland (No. 30), paced by reigning national semifinalist Wisconsin (No. 3). The No. 1 team? That’s Kentucky, of course. See Goodman’s analysis of all 10 Big Ten teams in this post.

Twitter: Indiana football nails reply to Pat Forde's jab

The SEC announced its new scheduling policy Sunday, and the conference will continue to play eight league games. The “new” wrinkle: Each team is required to schedule at least one non-conference game vs. an opponent from the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten or Pac-12. Yahoo! Sports columnist and BTN contributor Pat Forde thought the decision was interesting – so much so that, in an attempt to be cute, he ripped Indiana on Twitter. The Hoosiers took it in stride and replied with a classic response. Don't everyone call Indiana all at once, SEC schools. — Pat Forde (@YahooForde) April 27,

Michigan State Rose Bowl Ring

Michigan State's Rose Bowl ring is kind of impressive

BTN’s Lisa Byington gave Michigan State fans a sneak peek at the team’s Rose Bowl ring during Saturday afternoon’s spring game. The ring, which the Spartans haven’t seen yet, is quite impressive. It’s large, too. Like, really large. See a few pictures of the ring in this post.

Michigan State is the reigning Big Ten champ, and football fans will get a friendly reminder of that any time they tune in to a Spartans game this fall. The Spartans added “2013 Champions” under the “B1G” logos on the field and put a “Big Ten Champions” patch on the jersey. See pictures in this post.

Yarina: A super-early look at 2014-15 hoops predictions

With Mitch McGary announcing Friday that he will enter the NBA draft, we officially know what each Big Ten team will return for the 2014-15 season. So, naturally, that means it’s time to take a SUPER-early stab at next year’s standings and All-Big Ten teams. See my way-too-early predictions in this post.

Wes Lunt, Reilly O'Toole sing Backstreet Boys

Illinois’ Wes Lunt and Reilly O’Toole are involved in a heated quarterback battle, but one would have never guessed it based on their demeanor prior to the team’s spring game. While warming up, the two signal-callers sang Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way,” which was playing over the PA system. They took it seriously, too, with O’Toole, at one point, saying, “Dude, I’m killing this song. Hey, I’m killing this song.” Here are some other outtakes from the quarterbacks: “No way they’re having as much fun over there.” “This is a great song!” “They’re going to love that. I

B1G offensive players who deserve more fanfare

Spring football is nearing a close. There are three more spring games Saturday (Iowa, Michigan State, Rutgers), and that will mark the end of the Big Ten’s spring season. With most eyes already on the 2014 season, I decided to rank my top five offensive players (I took some liberties with that number) who should be receiving more attention entering the season. 1. Indiana quarterbacks. Whether it’s Tre Roberson or Nate Sudfeld, or a mixture of the two, under center, the Hoosiers figure to feature the Big Ten’s elite offense. The two signal-callers combined for 3,651 passing yards, 36 TD

Photo: Rutgers adds B1G logo patch to jerseys

Not an official member of the Big Ten until July 1, Rutgers will look a lot like a Big Ten team for its spring game Saturday. The B1G logos were added to the turf months ago, and now the jerseys have the B1G logo, as well. See a picture of the patch on Rutgers’ home jersey in this post.
