Big Ten links: Braxton Miller to be backup QB, Leonte Carroo & more

With J.T. Barrett suspended for this week’s Minnesota game, Braxton Miller will back up Cardale Jones. What are reasonable expectations for Miller? The gang at Cleveland.com debates it in this video. Don’t be shocked if Miller takes some snaps. I sure as heck would use him under center.

And here’s an interesting one: The Spartans haven’t lost a Big Ten road game in three years. MSU last lost a Big Ten road game on Oct. 20, 2012, at Michigan.

So, J.T. Barrett will forfeit his scholarship? On Monday, Urban Meyer said that Barrett would have to complete counseling through the school and would also forfeit his scholarship for a term. But, Barrett will remain a captain. OK. I guess I don’t see the connection with getting arrested for OWI and having your scholarship revoked. Seems unprecedented for such a transgression in all my years in the business. Interesting. *** Did Purdue have a breakthrough win vs. Nebraska? The great Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel checks it out. “It will certainly help,” Darrell Hazell said. And then, “From

Bowl Projections: Illini, Huskers fall off Jerry Palm's latest list

Time to take the Big Ten’s bowl temperature. That means checking in with the great Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com. No changes at the top, but Illinois and Nebraska have fallen from Palm’s projections. That drops the Big Ten’s projected bowl teams from 10 to eight.

Big Ten links: Corey Clement's return, Purdue's win & much more

It was great to see Corey Clement back on the field. And, he looked good vs. Rutgers. He will be an NFL player—at least that’s his plan.
