Dienhart: A look back at Big Ten's last four recruiting classes

Signing Day is a day when rosters are stocked and every recruit looks like a can’t-miss prospect. I took a look back at the last four years of recruiting in the Big Ten to see which schools have lived up to hype generated on National Signing Day as compared to their record over that same span. Scout.com was the source of the recruiting data. Schools are ranked based on won-loss records. Editor’s note: Figures for Maryland and Rutgers are for just the two seasons they have been in the Big Ten. 1. Ohio State 50-4 overall 31-1 Big Ten Average

Allen Trieu: 'I think the conference has done extremely well'

Recruiting never ends. Once one class is signed, schools cast their eyes to the next one. Offers are always going out … and being accepted. Schools are putting the finishing touches on their 2016 classes. I talked to Allen Trieu, the Midwest Football Recruiting Manager for Scout.com, to get his insights on all things Big Ten recruiting as we head toward Signing Day on Wednesday. Q: How has the conference been doing heading toward Signing Day? A: I think the conference has done extremely well. You have five teams in the Top 20, and that should true through Signing Day.

Bracketology: Iowa a No. 1 seed in Jerry Palm & Joe Lunardi's mocks

It’s time to take the temperature of the Big Ten’s NCAA hopes with a weekly check of the mock brackets from Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com and Joe Lunardi of ESPN. The Big Ten continues to look like a six-bid league. But Wisconsin is making some noise in Lunardi’s mock.

Big Ten links: Evan Turner jersey retirement, football updates & more

It will be nice to see Evan Turner’s No. 21 jersey hang in the rafters of Ohio State’s Value City Arena. Ohio State announced recently that it will hang the No. 21 in the rafters during halftime of the Buckeyes’ game against Michigan on Feb. 16. Turner’s number will be the fifth to hang in the rafters, joining Jerry Lucas (11), Gary Bradds (35), Jim Jackson (22) and John Havlicek (5). “It’s unbelievable for our program,” Matta said last weekend. “The one thing here is it’s very difficult to get your jersey hung in the rafters.

Poll: Who would you pick to take a last-second shot to win a game?

If you had to pick one Big Ten player to take a last-second shot to win a game, who would it be? I posed the question to those who cover the league. Jess Settles, BTN: Denzel Valentine. He already has hit many late-game shots in his stellar career. He’s not afraid of the moment and he has the skill set to make a game winner in a variety of ways. GopherHole.com: Melo Trimble for sure. He’s confident, he’s got great range and can get a shot off with very little separation. Cold blooded. Kevin Noon, BuckeyeGrove.com: I know a lot
