Big Ten links: Big Illini win, Riley builds Huskers staff & more

If this is what life without Rayvonte Rice (out indefinitely with a broken hand) is going to be like for Illinois, then things may be A-OK in Champaign. The Illini got a monster effort from Malcolm Hill en route to shocking Maryland on Wednesday night. This was a huge win for Illinois—it also was its first of Big Ten play after suffering some tough losses earlier in league action. This could be a spark. *** The staff of new Nebraska coach Mike Riley is taking shape. And it has an “Oregon State” feel, if you know what I mean. Including

But that doesn’t have to be an issue. A key is having unity

Mike Riley's offense, Michigan staff & more in Tuesday's links

Attention, Nebraska fans: Here is a good look at Mike Riley’s offense at Oregon State from Sam McKewon of the Omaha World-Herald. This much is certain: Riley knows he needs to change his attack. McKewon points out that teams in the Pac-12 – perhaps the nation’s strongest conference this year – averaged 33.5 points per game. Oregon State was last in the league at 25.7 points per game. Last in the league with 23.7 points per Pac-12 game. Last in the league with 25.4 points per game against FBS teams. Miserably last in third-down conversions at 31.74 percent. Last in
