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! PG: Drake Harris, Michigan Harris

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

Ranking 2015 Big Ten league games: Tom Dienhart's list, 30-11

Yesterday, I started my three-part series of ranking all 56 Big Ten league games, with games 56-31. Now, it’s time for the second installment, taking a look at games 30-11. Here we go: 30. Iowa at Indiana, Nov. 7. Iowa lost three in a row to Indiana from 1998-2000. Since then, the Hawkeyes have gone 8-3 in the series. But Iowa lost the last time it visited Bloomington in 2012. 29. Illinois at Iowa, Oct. 10. Illinois will be making its first trip to Iowa City since 2007 because of scheduling quirks. No matter the venue, the Hawkeyes have dominated

Tonight on BTN/BTN2Go: Nebraska's 2014 Gator Bowl win over Georgia

At 8 p.m. ET tonight on BTN/BTN2Go, we are replaying Nebraska’s 24-19 win over Georgia in the 2014 Gator Bowl. This was a huge game for the Huskers, who gave Bo Pelni his first bowl win as a Big Ten coach. Ameer Abdullah rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown, while Quincy Enunwa added four catches for 129 yards and two touchdowns. Nebraska’s defense was outstanding in this contest, holding Georgia’s all-world running back Todd Gurley to 86 yards on 21 carries. Here is a breakdown of Nebraska’s memorable win over Georgia. Top moment: Late in the third quarter, Nebraska

Nebraska will wear new black alternate Oct. 24 vs. Northwestern

Nebraska will wear a new adidas alternate uniform Oct. 24 vs. Northwestern, the company and team announced Thursday morning. [ PROGRAM ALERT: Watch the 2014 Gator Bowl at 8 ET tonight on BTN ] Like previous Nebraska alternates, this is not a look that makes anyone think of the program’s proud past – despite adidas calling the design”a tribute to history.” Whatever, if history is any indication, recruits and players will really like this design, and that’s what matters. Why so much black, you ask? It’s a nod to the defense’s “Blackshirt” moniker, which adidas has done previously for Nebraska

Big Ten links: Mark Turgeon Q&A, Penn State defense & much more

Good Q&A from CBSSports.com with Maryland coach Mark Turgeon, who may have the Big Ten’s best team next season. Heck, the Terps could win the national championship. *** I give Pitt coach and ex-Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi credit: He continues to beat the drum for a Penn State-Pitt rivalry. “Being from Pennsylvania, that’s a big game,” Narduzzi said. “I don’t think there’s any bigger rivalry, you can talk about Syracuse, until I’ve been in that Penn State rivalry, a win or a loss fuels that rivalry. In the state of Pennsylvania, Pitt/Penn State football game is where it

BTN LiveBIG: Michigan State student leaves school on a high note

At 217 years old and still going strong, “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band is nearly as old as America itself. Its storied history has included countless performances for American leaders and international heads of state, as well as being conducted by the likes of John Philip Sousa. Consequently, leading “The President’s Own” is a career highlight for the select few professional conductors who get the opportunity. But Joshua Kearney had the honor of doing that while he was still pursuing his doctorate in wind conducting at Michigan State. (At press time, Kearney had not yet completed his doctoral thesis.)

How Urban Meyer, Mark Dantonio stack up to game's best coaches

Who is the best coach in college football today? It’s the million dollar question, one that doesn’t necessarily have one correct answer. But while numerous college football minds argue their points, I’m going to settle this the old-fashioned way and let the numbers do the talking. I considered a list of the guys who many believe to be the top coaches in college football and calculated numbers based on five important categories (1. winning percentage; 2. first-place finishes; 3. bowl record; 4. 10-plus win seasons; 5. national championships). I based those categories over the past FIVE seasons (2010-14), for the
