Big Ten links: NU-Duke trash talk, vintage RU-PSU gallery & more

Trash talk? Between Northwestern and Duke? This is sweet. You know what they say: If you live long enough, you’ll see everything. Turns out Wildcats DE Ifeadi Odenigbo said he expects NU to shutout Duke. Blue Devils RB Shaun Wilson fired back on Twitter. So far this season, Northwestern has allowed just six points (two field goals), while Duke has averaged 46 in its first two contests. The Blue Devils have been held scoreless just once under head coach David Cutcliffe. I actually can’t wait for this game! *** I am a sucker for nostalgia. So, that’s why I pass

Big Ten links: Michigan State praise, Shane Morris & much more

Great read from Lee Barfknecht of Omaha.com, who wonders why more fuss isn’t being made nationally over Michigan State. I am as miffed as he is. Barfknecht wonders what else Michigan State must do to get onto college football’s main marquee. Check the trophy wins the past three seasons. The Spartans handed Urban Meyer his first loss in 25 games at Ohio State in the 2013 Big Ten championship game. The Buckeyes were No. 2 at the time. Then MSU toppled No. 5 Stanford in the Rose Bowl. During the 2014 regular season, Michigan State led both national title game

The first leaf hasn’t fallen off a tree yet, but it’s never too early for some playoff speculation. More specifically: Can the Big Ten get two teams—Ohio State and Michigan State--into the four-team playoff? Sure. It could happen. Myriad possibilities still loom for a lot of schools and leagues.

Big Ten links: Statement win for MSU and Big Ten, Penn State talent & more

That win over Oregon by Michigan State? It put the Spartans on a higher national stage. Really, the only thing left for MSU to do under Mark Dantonio is make the playoffs—and win a national title. And this victory vs. the Ducks will look good on MSU’s resume come early December. And as Mike Griffith of Mlive.com points out, the triumph over the No. 7-ranked Ducks — who entered a game as underdogs for the first time since 2011 — made a much-needed statement for the Spartans (2-0) as well as the Big Ten. Prior to MSU’s victory, the last

Dienhart: Is Ohio State using its quarterbacks correctly?

Another Saturday, another win for Ohio State. That’s 15 in a row, if you are counting. Ho-hum, right? Maybe not. [ MORE: Best of Week 2 | Get Week 2 scores, stats & recaps ] The No. 1-ranked Buckeyes moved to 2-0 by dispatching Hawaii, 38-0. But that wasn’t the real story from Columbus. Nope. The Buckeye quarterbacks were all anyone wanted to talk about—again. It has been that way for months. And, it’s not going away until some clarity is brought to the oh-so-important position. Think of it as the nit that will be picked at—over and over and
