Davis, along with former “Flyin’ Illini” star Stephen Bardo, highlights the new additions to BTN’s 2013-14 hoops talent roster.

Yahoo! Best-case, worst-case for top Big Ten hoops teams

How does three Big Ten teams in the top 10 sound? That’s what Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Eisenberg has in his Preseason top 25 best-case and worst-case scenarios. The three teams, of course, are Michigan State (No. 4), Michigan (No. 7) and Ohio State (No. 8). Eisenberg also lists Wisconsin (No. 19), but no Indiana or Iowa. The four ranked Big Ten teams are fewer than other experts, who either include the aforementioned Hoosiers or Hawkeyes, or both. Still, three teams in the top 10 – top 8, to be precise – is nothing to ignore. [ MORE: Yahoo.com: Preseason top

Video: Pat Fitzgerald answers reporter's cell phone

It’s kind of a big week at Northwestern. The 4-0 Wildcats are hosting Ohio State, which has won its last 17 games, Saturday night in a game that could be a preview of the 2013 Big Ten title game. If Monday’s press conference is any indication, Pat Fitzgerald isn’t letting the pressure of the big-time battle ruin his disposition. Not even a poorly timed phone call. In what is becoming a more common occurrence these days, a call came through to a reporter’s cell phone that was placed in front of Fitzgerald to record his comments. And, let’s just say,

Player Rankings: See who makes first list of 2013

I’ve said it several times: College football polls shouldn’t come out until at least October. You know, until we see what the teams look like and how they perform against quality competition. Well, with the calendar flipped to October, that means we’ve seen enough football to also consider other things. Like, for example, player rankings. View my first Big Ten player rankings of the season in this post. 1. Ohio State quarterbacks. Braxton Miller or Kenny Guiton, it doesn’t matter. The duo has combined to win the last three Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week awards, and it has

Video: Buckeyes console grieving local anchor

Here’s a moment everyone can enjoy. Following Saturday night’s win over Wisconsin, Ohio State players exited the field and headed to their locker room, as they always do. This time, however, the Buckeyes stopped to hug a man wearing a suit and headphones. The man was Dom Tiberi, a sport director for the local CBS affiliate. He had been on a leave from work following the death of his 21-year-old daughter in a car accident on Sept. 17. Needless to say, the Buckeyes felt his pain and were thrilled to see his face again. Watch the touching moment below: And
