Big Ten links: Indiana's tough weekend, football updates & more

It was a tough weekend for Indiana. First, the Hoosiers got dumped at Penn State on Saturday, with Iowa and Michigan State on deck. Then, IU sees Bob Knight speak at a Purdue function in Indianapolis after not attending the Hoosiers’ celebration of their 1976 team. It was weird to see this story unfold, as Knight even wore what looked like a gold sweater while feting Gene Keady. *** Yes, Iowa is playing well. But so is Indiana—before the PSU loss. And the big reason for the Hoosiers’ push up the standings is defense. Yogi Ferrell, however, is the straw

BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota leads international team to halt global pandemics

When the Ebola virus — which killed or infected nearly 40,000 people in Africa — entered the United States in 2014, a public panic ensued. The collective fear eventually subsided, thanks to medical and public-health officials effectively containing and stopping the virus’ spread through action, education and vigilance. If the Ebola outbreak had a silver lining, it was in how it brought to light the fact that many countries lack the resources needed to respond to a pandemic threat, said Dr. John Deen, a professor at University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “It wasn’t simply the identification or presence

Illinois great Dee Brown pens open letter to Illini Nation

Make no mistake, Illinois is struggling on the hardwood. The women’s team is 1-11 and in last place, while the men’s team is 3-8 and ahead of only winless Minnesota and Rutgers. [ MORE: Big Ten standings (Men) | Big Ten standings (Women) ] Illinois men’s basketball great and 2005 Big Ten Player of the Year Dee Brown is aware of the struggles, and the special assistant to the director of athletics doesn’t want “Illini Nation” to give up on the programs in the wake of another pair of disappointing seasons.

The Minnesota star erupted for a Big Ten single-game record and an NCAA record-tying 60 points in the Gophers’ double-overtime win at Northwestern. Banham set the Big Ten record on the jumper in the video above, and she tied the NCAA record in the closing seconds. “My teammates set me up so well,” Banham said in a BTN postgame interview. “I was just feeling really good, and I’m so happy we got that win.” She was feeling good, all right. Banham, who torched Northwestern for 32
