Video: Big Ten players read 'mean tweets' at B1G Media Days

Big Ten Media Day is a time for media members to get fans excited about the college football season. We took it a step further and had some fun at this year's Big Ten Media Day event in Chicago.

Dienhart: Welcome to the 'Year of the Linebacker' in the Big Ten

If you like linebackers, you’ll love the Big Ten. It’s loaded with them. There’s Iowa’s Josey Jewell, Penn State’s Brandon Bell, Wisconsin’s Vince Biegel, Michigan State’s Riley Bullough, Purdue’s Ja’Whaun Bentley and Nebraska’s Josh Banderas. I could go on, and I think I will. There also is Minnesota’s Jack Lynn, Maryland’s Jermaine Carter, Indiana’s Marcus Oliver and Northwestern’s Anthony Walker. And don’t forget about Ohio State’s Raekwon McMillan, who will give Walker a run for his money as the Big Ten’s primo linebacker. If not Walker or McMillan, how about Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers, who is a newbie to the position.

Big Ten media days are in our rearview mirror. The last cliché has been uttered. The last photo taken. The last pitcher of water drank. So, what’s left? [ MORE: Best of Day 1 | Best of Day 2 | Big Ten player survey ] How about some bold predictions for the 2016 season? Sure. Let’s go! 1. Michigan will solve its quarterbacking—and then some. Just like last year, the Wolverines have a yawning hole at QB. Last season, Jim Harbaugh and Co., transformed Iowa cast-off Jake Rudock into a Cinderella by making him one of the most effective signal-callers

Saquon Barkley, Jabrill Peppers make Bruce Feldman's 'Freaks' list

When discussing the Big Ten’s most freakish athletes, Jabrill Peppers and Saquon Barkley’s names enter the discussion early on. Not only can the do-it-all Michigan linebacker and athletic Penn State running back drop jaws every fall Saturday, but they can do some impressive work in the weight room. Bruce Feldman knows this, and the FOXSports.com columnist included both Big Ten standout in his popular annual “Freaks” post. Peppers comes in at No. 10 and Barkley at No. 9 in Feldman’s top 20 list. Here’s a portion of what the columnist says about both players: No. 10 Jabrill Peppers. A former

Big Ten links: So many good clicks from Big Ten football media days

As expected, Ohio State and Michigan were the picks in the Big Ten at media days. But, don’t sleep on Michigan State, which continues to always be overlooked. Amazing, isn’t it? Remember, this team won the Big Ten and went to the playoff last year. When will we learn? “Based on what they’ve done, Michigan State deserves the right to be included in the conversation of the elite Big Ten football teams,” new Rutgers coach Chris Ash said. “They’ve done it, they’ve done it well for a number of years now. They made the College Football Playoff last year. If
