Big Ten links: Spring game attendance, Matt Painter Q&A & much more

Seeing which school can have the biggest spring game attendance sometimes is more fun than the actual “games” themselves. So far, the Big Ten has the top three attendances in the nation. So, take that. Ohio State is No. 1 with 99,391; Nebraska No. 2 at 76,881 and Penn State No. 3 with 68,000. Michigan is No. 6 at 60,000. *** Ohio State was feted at the White House for winning the 2014 national title. Pretty sweet. Here is the complete transcript of what President Obama said to the team. And, of course, here is Twitter reaction and photos from

Dienhart: Check out Wisconsin's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

Wisconsin has been one of the Big Ten’s bellwether programs of late, and that success has yielded 42 picks in the last 10 NFL drafts. See Tom Dienhart's Wisconsin's NFL draft snapshot inside.

Dienhart: Here's what I learned in Saturday's five spring games

There was a lot of spring game action across the Big Ten over the weekend. Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State, Penn State and Purdue all hosted spring games Saturday, leaving four Big Ten teams still in action.

Big Ten links: Jim Delany's plan, Ohio State spring game & much more

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany has laid out his plan for freshman ineligibility. In a 12-page letter titled “Education First, Athletics Second: The Time for a National Discussion is Upon Us” and sent to media members Friday, Delany reiterated why he believes a so-called year of readiness would be beneficial at this “critical moment in the evolution of intercollegiate athletics.” The letter is not a proposal, he wrote. He did, however, lay out a plan to raise scholarship limits in FBS football and Division I men’s basketball and add scholarships in women’s sports to stay compliant with Title IX. Under

A look at A.J. Hammons' return and its impact on Purdue, Big Ten

Purdue received a big boost on Saturday when A.J. Hammons announced he was returning for his senior season. Hammons is coming off a breakout junior season in which he averaged a team-high 11.9 points and 6.6 rebounds en route to earning second-team All-Big Ten honors. He also paced the conference in blocks for a third season in a row to earn a spot on the league’s All-Defensive Team. “Earning my degree is one of the most important goals that I have for myself, and returning to Purdue next year will enable me to reach that,” Hammons said in a news

Jerry Kill Q&A: 'We got fundamentally better in a lot of areas'

With each passing year, Jerry Kill keeps taking Minnesota to new levels. It has been quite amazing, really. From a 3-9 debut in 2011 to a trip to the program’s first New Year’s Day bowl since the 1961 season, it has been a fun ride in Dinkytown. And Kill looks to keep pushing the Golden Gophers up the hill in the Big Ten coming off an 8-5 mark (5-3 Big Ten). Don’t bet against him or his astute staff. Minnesota finished second in the Big Ten West last season before losing to SEC East champ Missouri in the Citrus Bowl.

Dienhart: Check out Purdue's 10-year NFL draft snapshot

Purdue has had some surprising success in the last 10 NFL drafts, with 19 overall selections and three first-round picks. Not bad for a program that has been to just four bowls in the last 10 years. Linemen have been the most common picks, with six coming on defense and five on offense. The Boilermakers’ ability to produce defensive ends/outside linebackers has been remarkable, with the likes of Ryan Kerrigan, Anthony Spencer, Cliff Avril, Ray Edwards and Rob Ninkovich coming off the board in recent years. And the “cradle of quarterbacks” has had two picks, with Kyle Orton and Curtis

Latest Big Ten QB buzz includes Buckeyes' timeline to name a starter

Urban Meyer wants to name a starting quarterback by the middle of Ohio State's training camp (pssst, Ohio State's spring game is on BTN/BTN2Go Saturday). And there's a QB battle at Rutgers, too. And where dopes Jake Rudock fit in at Michigan? We take a spin around Friday's Big Ten headlines.

Randy Edsall Q&A: 'Our guys have a lot of confidence'

Maryland enjoyed a successful Big Ten debut in 2014, going 7-6 overall and 4-4 in conference play. That allowed the Terps to finish in third place in the uber-tough East Division highlighted by roads victories at Penn State and at Michigan. Now, it’s time to keep developing.
