Big Ten Mailbag: Our guy answers your postseason questions

You have questions? I have answers in my Big Ten Mailbag. Is Michigan State’s offense better than Alabama’s? Did I rank the Iowa-Stanford Rose Bowl matchup too low in my bowl rankings?

Big Ten links: Heisman finalists, Rose Bowl tickets & more

The Heisman finalists have been announced. And, there are no surprises: Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, Alabama RB Derrick Henry and Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey. I was hoping Navy QB Keenan Reynolds could get an invite. OU QB Baker Mayfield, too. Didn’t happen. Too bad. I have a vote. But, I can’t tell you what my ballot looked like or the Heisman police will seize my vote. *** Did you ever wonder what the office of Penn State coach James Franklin looked like? Take a gander. Pretty nice digs. *** No, Michigan didn’t win the Big Ten in title in Jim

Big Ten links: Chris Ash reaction, Ohio State hypothetical & more

Chris Ash officially was introduced as head coach at Rutgers on Monday. He is a bright defensive mind who is ready for the next step after helping run the Ohio State defense the last two years. Steve Politi of NJ.com has five first impressions. Politi thinks Ash should leave his OSU post now and dedicate himself to RU. But Ash will coach in the Fiesta Bowl with the Buckeyes. I like it. Here are Ash’s contract terms. Ash, who turns 42 on Dec. 24, has a five-year, $11-million deal and will receive a guaranteed salary starting at $2 million for

Dienhart: Rutgers football hires rising defensive mind Chris Ash

Rutgers recently hired a new A.D. Now, the school has hired a new coach in Chris Ash to replace Kyle Flood. [ MORE: Watch the Rutgers press conference live at 1:30 p.m. ET on BTN2Go ] Ash is one of the nation’s rising defensive minds, looking to improve the fortunes of a Rutgers program that went 4-8 overall, 1-7 in the Big Ten last year. Ash will face challenges navigating a rugged Big Ten East, but he won’t inherit a full-on rebuilding job. There is talent to work with as players like QB Chris Laviano, RBs Josh Hicks and Robert

Big Ten links: Bowl reaction, bowl previews & more bowl coverage

I was so glad to see Iowa get a Rose Bowl bid despite losing the league title game. The Hawkeyes haven’t been to Pasadena since the 1990 season. The drought is over. Iowa fans will overrun the Rose Bowl. It will be beautiful. Iowa will play Stanford, which it never has played. The Hawkeyes last played in the Rose Bowl in 1991 and lost to Washington 46-34. The Hawkeyes played in three Rose Bowls during the Hayden Fry era and lost all three. Kirk Ferentz was an assistant coach on the first two teams. Iowa appeared in two other Rose

Tom Dienhart offers early take on Michigan State-Alabama matchup

I thought Michigan State would jump from No. 5 to No. 3 after it toppled unbeaten Iowa in the Big Ten title game on Saturday night in Indianapolis. And, the College Football Playoff committee did just that, setting up a meeting with No. 2 Alabama in the Cotton Bowl in a national semifinal game.
