Big Ten links: Spring football news, depth charts & much more

What are the biggest questions about Penn State before its Blue and White game? For me, quarterback, d-line and o-line are big questions. *** If you listen to Rutgers DE Quanzell Lambert, the Scarlet Knights will be more aggressive on defense. “The defensive scheme is definitely a lot more aggressive up front,” redshirt senior defensive end Quanzell Lambert said. “It’s more of a north game for the D-line instead of east-west and stunting and everything.” *** It seems the rule that has deregulated texting has caused some concern, as now schools can text a prospect as often as they want.

Nebraska hires former player Amy Williams as head coach

Nebraska has hired Amy Williams as its new women’s basketball coach, Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst announced Monday. Williams will be formally introduced at 11 a.m. ET Tuesday in a press conference at the Hendricks Training Complex. “Amy is a very skilled and experienced basketball coach who has a track record of success both on and off the court and is an ideal fit for Nebraska,” Eichorst said in a school release. Williams, who replaces Connie Yori, played at Nebraska from 1994-1998 and graduated in 1998 with a degree in biology and mathematics. The former Husker comes to Nebraska with

No new bowl games until 2019, at the earliest, is great news

This just in from the “What On God’s Green Earth Took So Long” department: According to an ESPN report, the NCAA has approved a ban on the creation of new bowls until 2019—at the earliest. Can I get an “amen”? This is about 10 years too late. But, at least this day has arrived, as the bowl excess has ended … for now. You see, it isn’t true: If a little is good, more is better. Look, I love blocking, tackling, eye black, neck rolls, chicken wings and marching bands as much as the next cargo-shorts-wearing American. But, the bowl

Urban Meyer calls new unlimited texting rule 'ignorant'

The NCAA passed an unlimited texting rule Friday, which allows college football coaches to send as many electronic messages as they wish to high school recruits. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer isn’t a fan, and he let his opinion be known in his weekly press conference Monday morning. “That’s the most ignorant thing I’ve ever heard,” Meyer said. The coach worries about the recruits, about how they will be receiving texts from no shortage of coaches every day, with no ability to control who they hear from and no option to block the communication as they would on Facebook and

Dienhart: What I learned from Minnesota spring game

Tracy Claeys has put the wraps on his first spring practice as Minnesota coach. He’s looking to amp up a program that took a step back last year by going 6-7, the Gophers’ first losing mark since 2012. [ MORE: Watch a replay of the Minnesota spring game on BTN2Go ] It was a difficult season filled with challenges, as Jerry Kill stepped down after seven games to tend to health issues and Claeys eventually was made full-time coach after running things on an interim basis. He wasted little time putting his stamp on things by shaking up the staff,

Big Ten links: Desmond King, satellite camp reaction & more

Iowa CB Desmond King won the Jim Thorpe Award last year and could have entered the NFL. But, the Hawkeyes’ star opted to return for his senior season. In his first interview with Iowa media since the Jan. 1 Rose Bowl, King said “it was the bond I have with my teammates here” that ultimately brought him back. Some NFL Draft projections had him going as a late first-round choice. King didn’t expand on the evaluation he received in late December, but said it was favorable. Great to see this guy back in Iowa City. *** Speaking of Iowa, here

BTN LiveBIG: Penn State student gives voice to problem of communication limitations

During football and basketball games, BTN LiveBIG will spotlight notable examples of research, innovation and community service from around the conference. In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. Giving a voice to the voiceless: For Mary Elizabeth McCulloch, that formidable mission began in 2010 while she was an exchange student in Cuenca, Ecuador. McCulloch’s Spanish was admittedly poor, and she thought that volunteering with children might help her practice the language. That’s how the high schooler found herself working at the Mensajeros de la Paz (Messengers of Peace) Orphanage. What

Watch Sierra Lawrence drill game-winning HR at Nebraska

No. 1 Michigan lost its series opener in heartbreaking fashion Friday night at Nebraska. [ MORE: Watch a replay of the Michigan-Nebraska game on BTN2Go ] The Wolverines, however, bounced back to claim the final two games of the series, including an exciting 8-6 victory in the rubber game Sunday. Sierra Lawrence’s two-run home run to left field in the top of the seventh inning allowed Michigan to claim the series and improve to 7-2 in Big Ten play. Lawrence finished the game 2-for-3 with three runs and two RBI. Watch the game-winning blast in the video above. View the

Michigan's Khalid Hill rips NCAA's decision to ban satellite camps

Everyone, it seems, has an opinion on satellite camps. [ MORE: Dienhart: NCAA bans satellite camps, and it isn’t right ] Whatever one thinks about them, it doesn’t matter, this after the NCAA recently banned the practice that allowed teams to recruit away from campus. The decision isn’t a good one for the Big Ten, but, more importantly, high school kids across the country. These camps allowed athletes to get coached up, get noticed, and to maybe earn a scholarship. They exposed players to more coaches, which is never a bad thing. That opportunity is gone, a fact several current

Video: Watch our all-access Tracy Claeys feature

The Minnesota football team held its first spring game under Tracy Claeys on Saturday afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium. [ MORE: Watch a replay of the Minnesota spring game on BTN2Go ] Leading up to it all, BTN cameras followed Claeys, the longtime Jerry Kill assistant, around for an all-access look at a day with the Gophers. Claeys became the interim coach following Kill’s retirement midway through last season, and he earned the full-time position in November. Watch our feature on Claeys in the video above. And, check out some of the top Minnesota spring game highlights below.
