Video: Bo Ryan shoots scowl, busts out dance move

Bo Ryan and sideline scowls are a common occurrence. Bo Ryan and sideline dances, however, are not. The passionate Wisconsin basketball coach gave us both the common and rare occurrence all in one hilarious sequence early in the second half of Wisconsin’s 59-58 loss to Ohio State on Saturday afternoon. Watch it in this post. VIDEO: You HAVE to watch this Bo Ryan scowl, dance move from today's @BadgerMBB game. Trust us.

Nike unveils new Michigan State, Ohio State alternates

Nike is unveiling a new basketball uniform design, and like last year when it introduced those (awful) logo-centric uniforms, Michigan State and Ohio State have been selected to wear the new threads. Don’t worry, these new “Hyper Elite Dominance” uniforms are far better than their predecessor. See the uniforms in this post.

Yarina: State of Big Ten hoops address

President Obama will deliver the annual State of the Union Address tonight. That being the case, I thought I’d do something super-cheesy and address the state of each Big Ten men’s basketball team. See my take on all 12 teams in this post. [ MORE: Check out Stephen Bardo’s latest Big Ten Power Rankings ] Editor’s note: Team records are through January 27 action. ILLINOIS (2-6) It’s hard to be successful when the shots aren’t falling, and the Illini can’t be accused of torching any nets across the Big Ten. How bad has it gotten? Illinois shoots 36.2 percent in

Twitter: @FauxPelini and his cat are back in the news

Earlier this month during the BCS title game, Bo Pelini “won” Twitter by tweeting at his parody account, @FauxPelini, to ask for his cat back. Read more here. Three weeks later, the cat featured in the fake account’s photo is back in the news. Sort of. You see, Nebraska recently tweeted a picture of a cat on Pelini’s desk. Why? For fun, and as a way to promote the @FauxPelini-Reddit Ask Me Anything feature. @RedditCFB Delivered without comment or context. #GBR pic.twitter.com/skUzdbYbux — Nebraska Huskers (@Huskers) January 24, 2014 Read @FauxPelini and HuskersAthletics’ responses to fans’ questions here.

Spartans to wear 1979 throwback vs. Michigan

Michigan State basketball is going with a special throwback uniform for Saturday night’s huge tussle with rival Michigan at the Breslin Center. The Spartans will wear their “State” script design from 1979, the year Magic Johnson and Michigan State won the national title. The team hasn’t worn the uniform since the 2003-04 season, according to this mlive.com article. This is a classic and excellent look; in fact, it’s one Nike and the Spartans should thinking about bringing back in a more modern design. The Spartans (7-0) host intrastate rival Michigan (6-0) at 7 p.m. ET Saturday. Need more reason to

Throwback Thursday Q&A: Penn State's Joe Crispin

Joe Crispin was a scoring machine throughout his Penn State career (1997-2001). The guard averaged 15.6 points in four seasons, thanks in large part to burying 308 3-pointers (2.4 per game). Currently, Crispin, who played 10 pro seasons, including stints with the NBA’s Suns and Lakers, is retired and runs Crispin Basketball in southern New Jersey. The former Nittany Lion guard has four children, all under the age of 10, and is preparing to get into coaching. Read BTN.com’s full email Q&A with Crispin.

Video: NU holds moment of silence for Purdue tragedy

Purdue had plenty of support on the road Tuesday in Evanston, and it wasn’t just from Boilermaker fans. That’s because members of The Wildside, Northwestern’s student section, wrote “Stand With Purdue” on their chests to show support for the visitors (see photo below), who had a fatal shooting at their school earlier in the day. The Wildcats also held a moment of silence prior to the tip. Talk about classy!

Did You See This? Robbie Hummel on Purdue tragedy

Hours after the tragic events Tuesday at Purdue, former Boilermaker Robbie Hummel posted a picture to his Instagram account of the Purdue campus, accompanied by a very powerful message. See the picture and Hummel’s words in this post.
