Football tour notebook: Quick takes from Indiana football practice

The BTN bus has left Indiana practice, and now it’s time to share some nuggets I gathered while watching the Hoosiers in action Monday morning. [ MORE: 5 things Tom Dienhart learned | View our tour schedule ] There is a football attached to a spring on a pole on both sides of the entrance to the practice field. As defensive players walk onto the field, they slap at the ball. Hey, it’s all about getting used to creating turnovers. This season, Kevin Wilson has altered his practice routine, having the team go hard early and taper down as the

The BTN bus has left Ohio State, and now it’s time to share some news, notes and nuggets from the Buckeyes practice. [ MORE: 5 things Tom Dienhart learned | See our Ohio State football tweets ] Tim Beck arrived from Nebraska and is co-offensive coordinator. He’ll work with offensive coordinator Ed Warinner, who will call the plays with Tom Herman off to coach Houston. Beck will work from the press box and Warinner will be on the field.

5 things Tom Dienhart learned at Ohio State football practice

The 12th stop on our annual summer BTN bus tour across the Big Ten brought us to Columbus, Ohio, where we watched the Buckeyes practice Monday night. [ MORE: Ohio State practice notebook | See our Ohio State tweets ] Here are five things I learned at Ohio State practice. 1. The receivers look good. This was one unit that suffered some significant attrition with Devin Smith and Evan Spencer gone. But the Buckeyes have a legit star/No. 1 in junior Michael Thomas, one of the nation’s most underrated wideouts. There also is sophomore Noah Brown, sophomore Terry McLaurin and

What Tom Dienhart will be watching at Indiana football practice

Kevin Wilson has made Indiana a better program in his four seasons. But, he has no bowl appearance to show for it. That may change in 2015. The talent level is at an all-time high under Wilson, who has a good offensive system and an idea of how to win in Bloomington. The offense looks good once again. But, success may come down to an often maligned defense delivering the goods. Here are three things I’ll be watching at Indiana practice. 1. Is the o-line dominating? This has a chance to be a very good front. Maybe even (gasp!) one

Football tour notebook: Quick takes from Rutgers practice

The BTN bus has left Rutgers , and now it’s time to share some news, notes and nuggets I gathered while watching the Scarlet Knights. This is a roster that looks more Big Ten-caliber than last year. Even better: Rutgers seems to understand what it is: a tough, physical team that will have to out work and out hit teams to win. On offense, the Scarlet Knights want to go downhill and wear down foes. They have the line and backs to do it. Kyle Flood has his players buying into that mentality. This looks like another bowl team if

5 things Tom Dienhart learned at Rutgers football scrimmage

The annual summer trek through Big Ten country continues as the 11th stop on our tour brought us to Rutgers where we watched the Scarlet Knights scrimmage Saturday night. Here are the fives things I learned at Rutgers. 1. The defensive line should be good. End Kemoko Turay was a revelation last season in his debut, but he missed Saturday’s scrimmage with injury. Senior Darius Hamilton, who could be one of the best tackles in the Big Ten, also didn’t play Saturday. He lacks great bulk but is quick off the ball. RU needs both of these guys 100 percent.

What Tom Dienhart will be watching at Ohio State practice

So, what does Ohio State do for an encore coming off a stunning 14-1 national championship season? How about winning another crown? The reigning kings of college football have it all going on, as Urban Meyer features a loaded roster. Will this team lose a game this season? Hmmmm. Some issues may arise to derail the mighty Buckeyes. Here are three things I’ll be watching Monday at practice. 1. How do the quarterbacks look? This is obvious, right? I mean, no position in America has been scrutinized more that the Ohio State quarterback spot. Junior Cardale Jones and sophomore J.T.
