Power Rankings: 9-5 Michigan State jumps up to No. 1 spot

Every week, I sit down and assemble my Big Ten Power Rankings, presented by ArcelorMittal. In the past, I’ve based it solely on what I see. Some of which is potential.

Two weeks remain in the Big Ten men’s basketball regular season. [ MORE: Power Rankings | Game Rankings | Bracketology | Ready for the week ahead? | Best of week that was | Early look at B1G tourney bracket | Standings | Stats | Scoreboard | Polls ] Indiana is atop the standings, but there’s a logjam behind it. Iowa sits a half-game off the pace, and Maryland is one game out. Interesting twist: The Hoosiers’ final two games are, you guessed it, against Iowa (Iowa City) and Maryland (Bloomington). So, most likely, this thing is going to come down to

B1G tourney bracket: Here’s what it looks like, if season ended today

The 2016 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament is fast approaching. [ MORE: Power Rankings | Game Rankings | Bracketology | Ready for the week ahead? | Best of week that was | Early look at B1G tourney bracket | Standings | Stats | Scoreboard | Polls ] Just two weeks remain in the regular season, in fact. We know it’s early, but we also know Big Ten fans enjoy taking an if-the-season-ended-today look at the tourney bracket. Here’s the latest look, entering the penultimate week of games: WEDNESDAY (MARCH 9) Game 1, 4:30 pm. ET ESPN2: No. 13 Minnesota vs. No. 12

Michigan State paces Big Ten in latest AP & Coaches polls

There’s a new team pacing the Big Ten in the latest AP and Coaches polls, released Monday. [ MORE: Power Rankings | Ready for the week ahead? | Best of week that was | Early look at B1G tourney bracket | Standings | Stats | Scoreboard | Polls ] That team is Michigan State, which comes in at No. 6 (AP) and No. 7 (Coaches) this week. Iowa and Maryland aren’t too far behind in either poll, though, coming in at No. 8/No. 8 and No. 10/No. 9, respectively. Big Ten leader Indiana moves up to No. 18/No. 15 after a strong 2-0 week that included

Big Ten Whiteboard: Wisconsin at Iowa (BTN) spotlights week's slate

The Big Ten has become a three-team race, with Indiana, Iowa and Maryland battling at the top with two weeks remaining in the regular season. Don’t sleep on Michigan State, either.

2016 spring football preview: Northwestern Wildcats

Northwestern is coming off a special season in which it won 10 games. And it was a much-needed elixir for a program that was coming off consecutive 5-7 seasons. Now, can the Wildcats continue their evolution? [ MORE: Get all of Tom Dienhart’s Big Ten spring football coverage ] The offense needs to get better after ranking last in the Big Ten in scoring (19.5 ppg) and last overall (327.1 ypg). The passing attack lacked big-play ability, as NU ranked—what else?—last in the conference (138.5 ypg). No staff changes were made, so any improvement will have to come through maturation.

Big Ten links: Jim Leonard's return, Michigan's spring plans & more

Good to see former Wisconsin star DB Jim Leonhard return to Madison as DB coach. Leonhard will replace Daronte Jones, who left Wisconsin earlier this month to take an assistant defensive backs coach position with the Miami Dolphins. Leonhard, 33, began his Badgers career as a walk-on in 2001 and went on to play 10 years in the NFL before retiring after the 2014 season. He is a classic Badger. *** Michigan’s offensive line should be pretty good next season. But there’s a big hole at center with Graham Glasgow gone. A possible solution: moving left tackle Mason Cole to

BTN LiveBIG: Artist helps students at Illinois move their feet for social change

Recent violence and heated rhetoric across the country has led to anger and racial tension in communities all over the U.S. And one performer working at the University of Illinois made an effort to help others address those feelings in a positive, productive way. National Arts medal winner Ping Chong spent the month of January as an artist-in-residence at the University of Illinois, working with Department of Dance students on a piece called Baldwin NOW. Chong’s residency was funded by a grant from the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation and the Center for Advanced Study’s George A. Miller Endowment Visiting

Tom’s Take: Honors, stock watch, top performers, notes & quotes

An interesting rivalry week ends with Indiana riding atop the Big Ten. But Iowa and Maryland are just one-half game and one game off the pace, respectively. That said, could Michigan State be the best team in the Big Ten? [ MORE: Big Ten standings | Big Ten stats | Big Ten scoreboard | Polls ] Here’s a look back at the week that was.
