2016 spring football preview: Nebraska Cornhuskers

Optimism bubbles in Lincoln. Yes, Mike Riley’s debut didn’t go smoothly. It seemed each week, the Cornhuskers found a new way to lose a game.

Big Ten links: Iowa's struggles, Big Ten football updates & more

What on god’s green earth is wrong with Iowa? The Hawkeyes are letting a Cinderella season derail from the tracks, losing three in a row and four of five. It’s threatening to torpedo the program’s quest for its first Big Ten title since 1978-79. Jarrod Uthoff addresses the team’s confidence after a gut-punch loss at Ohio State on Sunday in this video. If Iowa can win its last two games—and Indiana loses both of its game—the Hawkeyes would earn a share of the title. And, it’s possible. IU plays at Iowa on Tuesday.

We asked a few Big Ten writers for Coach of the Year picks

Who is your choice for Big Ten Coach of the Year? Fran McCaffery? Tom Crean? Greg Gard? Lots of good options. I asked several people who cover the league for their choice as the season is about to draw to a close. Chad Leistikow, Des Moines Register: Right now I’ve got Iowa’s Fran McCaffery with a slight lead, but he’s got to show he can finish off what the Hawkeyes have started. I think McCaffery’s case is helped by the unwarranted low expectations placed on Iowa to start the season (picked ninth in the league by a BTN panel, which

2016 spring football preview: Minnesota Gophers

Jerry Kill is gone. The Tracy Claeys era has begun. And, change is brewing … it has been for several months. The program is on solid footing, having been to a bowl each of the last four seasons. But the staff has been altered with a new offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach and offensive line coach. Still, there is momentum coming off a bowl win that capped a disappointing 6-7 season. Claeys let go offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Matt Limegrover and quarterbacks coach Jim Zebrowski. Jay Johnson was hired from Louisiana-Lafayette to run the offense and coach quarterbacks, while Bart Miller was

MSU's Matt Costello: 'Only thing we are lacking is consistency'

We have all the pieces, inside game, outside game, unselfish, running game. The only thing we are lacking is consistency." Spartans face Penn State this Sunday on BTN/BTN2Go.
