I was on a radio show in Omaha today and was asked to rank the top five Big Ten schools on their recruiting appeal. That got me thinking about how I would rank the schools 1-12 based on what they have to offer from a recruiting standpoint. Here is a fun, interesting exercise with Signing Day in our rear-view mirror.
With so many Big Ten programs constantly beating up on each other this season, how many teams from the conference will receive bids in this year’s NCAA Tournament? That has been one of the most popular questions among Big Ten hoops fans this season.
There were three Big Ten women’s hoops games on Thursday evening. Iowa upset No. 9 Penn State, Purdue cruised past Ohio State and Michigan edged out a win over Northwestern. Catch up on all the scores, stats and highlights in this post.
The Big Ten Conference has at least 42 current or former student-athletes, alumni or coaches competing for gold medals at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The group includes 18 former Olympians and 16 past medalists, will represent five different countries and seven of the 12 Big Ten institutions in five different sports.
When it comes to the Winter Olympics Big Ten schools are well represented in the marquee sport of hockey in both the men’s and women’s divisions. Have a look at who is playing in the 2014 Olympics on the and see what some of them are already tweeting from Sochi.
The dust has settled on National Signing Day. Have you recovered from the frenzy? Ohio State was the big winner. No surprise. Urban Meyer has loads of momentum and mojo. In fact, he’s three for three when it comes to winning Big Ten recruiting titles. Now, he just needs to win his first on-field championship. That may be coming this fall.
For Sarah McNitt, a student advisor at the University of Iowa, the remarkable joy that came from winning five days in a row on Jeopardy! was mitigated by the fact that her mother passed away just one month before she appeared on the show.
