Best of Week 8: Maryland vs. Penn State should be fun again

A very abbreviated week of action with just five games. Why? Iowa, Minnesota, Purdue and Michigan all are off. [ MORE: Best of Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6  | Week 7 ] Maryland and Penn State have a burgeoning rivalry. And last year’s meeting in State College helped fuel it. Maryland was hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty before kickoff when its three captains refused to shake the hands of the three Nittany Lion captains gathered at midfield for the game’s coin toss. Maryland went on to

Big Ten links: Purdue quarterbacks, Caleb Swanigan impact & more

Quarterback play has been an issue for Purdue for a few seasons. Who is the best option in 2015? Austin Appleby? Danny Etling? David Blough? Elijah Sindelar? Would Darrell Hazell consider a rotation? “No,” said Hazell. “No. Absolutely not.” Appleby figures to be the guy, but he may be little more than “pedestrian.” Ditto Etling.

The home has a finished basement and a 1,900-square-foot attached garage. It has 16 rooms and an outdoor patio features a built-in grill and a waterfall. *** I know Penn State has a soft schedule—probably the easiest in

Big Ten links: NCAA rule changes, Penn State bowl revenue & more

It’s official: The NCAA has adopted men’s basketball rules, including a shorter shot clock. The NCAA announced the news in a tweet Monday afternoon, confirming that Division I men’s basketball teams will play with a 30-second shot clock. It also announced a four-foot restricted-area arc and that there will be four timeouts instead of five (with no more than three carrying over from the first to the second half). The measures are aimed at improving the on-court product after a regular season marked by low-scoring, slow-paced games. Expanding the charge circle is expected to reduce the amount of collisions in the
