Dienhart: Big Ten West defensive backfield unit rankings

No Big Ten team will have a better DB than Iowa corner Desmond King, who won the Thorpe Award. But instead of turning pro coming off that season of glory, King opted to return to Iowa City. And that’s a big reason why the Hawkeyes top my ranking of Big Ten West defensive backfields. [ MORE: West offensive lines | West pass-catchers | West backfields | West defensive lines | West linebackers | West predictions ] See my full ranking below. 1. Iowa. This could be the top secondary in the Big Ten. Senior corner Desmond King eschewed the NFL

Best of ... Northwestern: BTN LiveBIG

Were it not for a sportswriter in the Chicago Daily Tribune, Northwestern’s athletic teams might still be known as “The Purple.” Writing in 1924, Wallace Abbey said of Northwestern’s football team: “Football players had not come down from Evanston; wildcats would be a name better suited to [Coach Glenn] Thistletwaite’s boys.” Since then the Wildcats have taken that same expansive enthusiasm and applied it to endeavors both on and off the field. A founding member of the Big 10 conference, Northwestern’s reach extends as far away as Qatar, where it runs a journalism and communications school. It has put an emphasis

See who is scheduled to attend 2016 Big Ten Media Days in Chicago

Power Five leagues release plan to give athletes more time off

The commissioners of the five autonomy conferences announced Thursday an agreement in concept on changes they will propose that are intended to give students who play sports more time off. The purpose of the changes is to rebalance the student experience between athletics and campus life, providing students with more time to focus on other college interests, including academics, work experience, travel, and additional rest. The first area of change, Flex 21, will provide students, in many cases, with at least an additional 21 days in which they are free of required athletic activities during the academic year. These 21

Dienhart: Big Ten East defensive backs unit rankings

There is a lot to like about Michigan in 2016, as Jim Harbaugh begins his second season in Ann Arbor in pursuit of the program’s first Big Ten title since 2004. Among the many areas of strength is the secondary, led by Jourdan Lewis—one of the best corners in America. [ MORE: East offensive lines | East receiving corps | East backfields | East defensive lines | East linebackers | East predictions ] Here is my ranking of the Big Ten East defensive backfields. 1. Michigan. Senior Jourdan Lewis lacks size but is one of the nation’s best corners and

Best of ... Maryland: BTN LiveBIG

Sitting in the shadow of our nation’s capital, the University of Maryland shines as a beacon of scholarship and innovation inside the beltway and out. Since its earliest years as the first agricultural research university in the U.S., the Terps have long been forerunners in the fields of entrepreneurship and sustainability. Today, the school is home to one of the largest public university research parks (M Square) and a groundbreaking Office of Sustainability that has become a pacesetter for eco-consciousness at the university level. Home to six Nobel laureates (four faculty and two alumni), the school has a diverse pool of alums

Debate it: Most intriguing storyline heading into this season?

The 2016 Big Ten football season should be filled with plenty of outstanding storylines. How good will Michigan be? Is Ohio State the favorite? Can Michigan State repeat as Big Ten champions? The list goes on and on. But what is truly the most intriguing storyline heading into the 2016 Big Ten football season? I asked that very question to two of the best in the business: BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart and USA Today national college football reporter Nicole Auerbach. The three of us shared our answers below. Who do you agree with? Tweet me your answers, @BTNSean. What

Dienhart: Ranking the Big Ten's top 10 running backs

Yes, Ohio State’s all-world talent Ezekiel Elliott is gone, in addition to Illinois’ Josh Ferguson, Iowa’s Jordan Canzeri and Maryland’s Brandon Ross. But the Big Ten is loaded with plenty of options/depth at running back entering the 2016 season. The impressive group is led by Penn State wunderkind Saquon Barkley. [ MORE: Top 7 quarterbacks | Top 10 wide receivers | Full unit rankings ] Here is my ranking of the Big Ten’s top 10 running backs for 2016. 1. Saquon Barkley, Penn State, So. The future seems limitless for a guy who set the Penn State freshman rushing record

Big Ten links: Michigan's heralded d-line, basketball updates & more

The hype surrounding the Michigan defensive line continues to grow. And end Taco Charlton hopes to be a big part of the front as he aims for an impactful senior send-off. Will this be the year he finally puts it all together? He looks like a pro—but doesn’t always play like one. “I’m going to set my expectations higher than anyone else can set them,” Charlton said last month in Ann Arbor. “As a d-line we do the same thing collectively, together. We hold ourselves to that point. We feel like we can be the best. But it doesn’t mean
