Dienhart: Scouting reports on Huskers, Badgers

Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

The Big Ten title game is almost upon us, and who better to break down Nebraska and Wisconsin than coordinators from other Big Ten schools? I dialed up six Big Ten coordinators from both sides of the ball and talked off the record with the guys who watched film, prepared game plans and stared down each team on a Saturday this fall. I asked them for their frank, candid and unvarnished analysis of each team.

Joseph Bertrand Elevates

Illinois’s Joseph Bertrand showed off some acrobatics on Wednesday night against Georgia Tech, including the twisting shot in this video.

Bertrand finished with 15 points, one of four Illini players in double digits.
