Beat writers select 2015 Big Ten West sleeper teams

On Wednesday, we took a look at potential sleepers in the Big Ten East. Now, let’s take a look at the Big Ten West. I asked writers from the division who they felt could be a sleeper in the West.

Big Ten links: 'Excuses' out of SEC, Braxton Miller reaction & more

If you have a TV or check the internet, you’ve likely heard at least one SEC coach spew some kind of excuse the last week or so. Well, FOX Sports’ Stewart Mandel has a great piece on it, one in which he says this about the conference that hasn’t won the national title in either of the last two seasons after wining the previous seven crowns: “So you’ll have to forgive us if we’re not exactly spilling tears over all the apparent slights that are keeping down the S-E-C, where the “E” apparently now stands for “Excuses.” Thought Big Ten

BTN LiveBIG: 5 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Purdue Astronauts

Many people already know that Purdue is “Astronaut University.” Twenty-three of its graduates took part in spaceflight missions, and Neil Armstrong is among its distinguished astronaut alumni. But there’s a lot more to know when it comes to Purdue graduates’ contributions to space exploration. Here are five interesting facts that aren’t widely known: 1. The moon landing wasn’t Neil Armstrong’s only pioneering achievement. In addition to being “one giant leap for mankind,” the moon landing was a culmination of sorts for Armstrong’s long, distinguished career in space exploration. The Purdue grad joined the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) —

Tonight on BTN/BTN2Go: Spartans stun Badgers on 'Rocket' in 2011

At 8 p.m. ET tonight on BTN/BTN2Go, we are replaying Michigan State’s memorable 37-31 win over Wisconsin in the 2011 Big Ten football season. This game will be remembered by one simple word: “Rocket.” That is the name Mark Dantonio tabbed Keith Nichol’s game-winning Hail Mary catch to top Wisconsin and knock the Badgers off from the ranks of the unbeaten. After Montee Ball punched in a game-tying touchdown run with 1:26 remaining in the contest, Michigan State got the ball back and had one last shot to win it. With four seconds left, MSU quarterback Kirk Cousins heaved a

If current Big Ten football players formed a basketball team

How good would that guy be at basketball? If you’re an avid sports fan, chances are you’ve probably asked yourself that very question when watching a college football game, or vice versa. Last year, around this time, I wrote a story about if Big Ten basketball players could form a football team. Now, let’s flip the switch. I went ahead and put together a starting five and a sixth man made up of current Big Ten football players. There are so many good choices, so if I missed one, tweet me @BTNSean. Here we go!

Mike Phair Q&A: 'We have a ways to go, but there is some young talent'

Illinois has made steady progress under Tim Beckman, going from two victories his first season in 2012, to four in 2013 to six wins last season along with a bowl bid. Now, to take the proverbial next step, the Illini need to improve on defense. That’s why Mike Phair is in town. Beckman tabbed Phair from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to coach the defensive line and serve as co-defensive coordinator alongside coordinator Tim Banks. Phair spent the last 13 seasons in the NFL. He was with the Buccaneers the last three seasons, where he helped coach a front that notched
