Big Ten links: Bo Ryan reaction, Tom Osborne Q&A & much more

With Bo Ryan about to ride off into the sunset, Tom Oates of Madison.com thinks that recruiting could be a tough sell for Wisconsin. That’s an impact of not knowing who will be Ryan’s successor. Badger coaches can’t tell recruits who will be their coach in 2016-17. The school needs to name assistant Greg Gard as Ryan’s heir. Why break from the Ryan family/mold? Hey, Tom Izzo was Jud Heathcote’s assistant. See where I am going with this? *** More Wisconsin from Oates … Here is a good look at what Bo Ryan has done at Wisconsin. And, Ryan has

I mean, the guy is 67 years old and has taken the Wisconsin program to heights it hasn’t achieved in decades. Ryan is 357-125, a .741 winning percentage, in 14 seasons at UW. That run includes four Big Ten regular-season titles and no finishes worse than fourth place in the league. The Badgers have advanced to the NCAA tournament in every season under Ryan and have made seven appearances in the Sweet 16 and the aforementioned

Big Ten links: Quest to find Bob Knight chair, football updates & more

Good piece from Sam McKewon of Omaha.com, who says the Big Ten is hoping for a better non-conference showing early on in 2015 than it had in 2014. While the Big Ten finished strong last year, it struggled outside the league early in 2014. Remember Sept. 6, when in three high-profile, nationally televised games — Michigan State at Oregon, Michigan at Notre Dame and Virginia Tech at Ohio State — the league took it on the chin with three losses? This year, the Big Ten can score some big credibility points over Labor Day weekend, when there are myriad big

Big Ten links: Iowa football ticket sales, FOX dream draft & more

Yes, football ticket sales are down at Iowa. But A.D. Gary Barta stands by Kirk Ferentz, the Big Ten’s longest-tenured coach. “My response to you is, Kirk Ferentz is a proven and terrific leader, and he’s won at Iowa,” Barta said in an interview with the Des Moines Register. “I’ve made it clear that I’m 100 percent behind him and I’m 100 percent behind his staff.“ *** Count Lloyd Carr among the growing legion of Jim Harbaugh fans. Mlive.com notes that schools like OSU, Michigan State and Notre Dame continue to establish strong recruiting roots in the Midwest, but Carr
