Northwestern reveals undiscovered secrets of the galaxies: BTN LiveBIG

Imagine discovering the impossible: Something so significant it affects the course of scientific thought dating back to Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. Astrophysicist Dr. Frederic Rasio knows that feeling. For the past 20 years, Rasio, the Joseph Cummings professor of physics at Northwestern University, has been using computational modeling to understand the life-cycle of globular clusters. His research into these dense star clusters touches on X-ray astronomy and radio pulsar astronomy. To understand the scope of this work, it’s helpful to get a sense of the size and age of the astronomical objects he studies. Globular clusters are ancient and dense

How Indiana University launched the career of a Wild West historian : BTN LiveBIG

During the 1950s, millions of American children got caught up in the Davy Crockett craze. Driven by the iconic Disney series starring Fess Parker, American cities and towns were soon crawling with kids sporting coonskin caps and toting long, toy rifles. Though most other children outgrew that trend, Paul Andrew Hutton never really did. “I just got hooked on everything about Davy Crockett and then the West,” Hutton said. “I read everything about it that I could as a kid.” Over the next several decades, he turned that passion into a career filled with accolades and achievements. He wrote and

Big Ten Mailbag: Chances Iowa runs table for second straight season?

Before lighting my sparklers and grilling hot dogs, I thought I’d go through my Big Ten Mailbag. [ MORE: East OL | West OL | East pass-catchers | West pass-catchers | East backfields | West backfields | East DL | West DL | Top 7 QBs | Top 10 WRs ] I tackle questions about the Nebraska quarterbacks, Iowa’s prospects for regular-season perfection and Wisconsin’s chances to slow LSU RB/beast Leonard Fournette in the season opener, among other subjects. Let’s go! What is the likelihood that Iowa runs the table in the regular season again? The Hawkeyes get Wisconsin, Nebraska,

Dienhart: Ranking the Big Ten’s top 10 wide receivers

Much debate rages about who will be the quarterback at Michigan. Whoever wins the job will be comforted by the fact he’ll throw to two of the Big Ten’s top targets in Jehu Chesson and Amara Darboh. In fact, the former heads my ranking of 2016 Big Ten wide receivers. [ MORE: East OL | West OL | East pass-catchers | West pass-catchers | East backfields | West backfields | East DL | West DL ] Check out my top 10 below. 1. Jehu Chesson, Michigan, Sr. Wolverine insiders say the 6-3, 200-pound Chesson was the most improved player on

Big Ten links: Most watched 2015 games, Big Ten tributes & more

What were the most watched Big Ten football games in 2015? Dave Jones of Pennlive.com has them. No shocker that Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska were prominently involved in many of these highly viewed games. The No. 1 most watched? MSU at OSU. Shocked? A close finish between highly ranked teams that produced a monster upset fueled ratings. *** Ohio State’s already strong staff just got stronger with the addition of Joker Phillips, who at one time was head coach at Kentucky. He will be an offensive quality control assistant for Urban Meyer. Phillips was WR coach of

Illinois professor shows heart in attempt to climb Kilimanjaro: BTN LiveBIG

Paul Magelli is a man of many titles. Currently the visiting professor of economics, emeritus, at the University of Illinois, he’s also been in several other roles: senior director of the Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership at the university’s College of Business, founder of the student-run Illinois Business Consulting organization, and goat farmer. This August, the octogenarian is hoping to add another title to the list: oldest person to ever summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Still, as he’s told his students, “Titles aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.” Even if he doesn’t make it to the very

The top Big Ten football players by jersey number

When talking about the best football players in Big Ten history, it is near impossible to choose just one player worthy of the title, “the best.” [ MORE: Can a Big Ten West team win the conference title in 2016? ] So, what’s the right way to break down this argument? You could do it by position, but even that could be extremely difficult. Making a list of the top Big Ten players to wear every number would be great, but is that even possible? The answer is yes. I went through every jersey number, 1-99, and created a list

Dienhart: Big Ten West defensive line unit rankings

Ask any coach, and he’ll tell you the most difficult spot to recruit is defensive line. It is very difficult to find players who are big AND quick. Teams that can build good lines typically have a shot to win league titles. Iowa is one of those teams. [ MORE: West offensive lines | West pass-catchers | West backfields | West predictions ] Here is my ranking of the Big Ten West defensive lines. 1. Iowa. It hurts not having ends Drew Ott and Nate Meier, who made for a formidable tandem. Still, there is lots to build on. Sophomore

Big Ten links: Ready for Thursday best headlines? Here you go!

It is difficult to believe that former Northwestern coach Randy Walker has been gone for 10 years. I never will forget the day I heard the news of his passing. It was jolting. The suddenness … the shock … the sadness. InsideNU.com looks at Walker’s best NU squad, the 2000 club that won a share of the Big Ten title. Such a fun, explosive team. Who can forget the win vs. Michigan? *** David Jones of Pennlive.com says Penn State’s upset of Ohio State in 2005 changed how college football attacked Major League Baseball broadcasts. “That game did a 5
