2016 spring football preview: Illinois Fighting Illini

There is a lot to work on this spring in Champaign for an Illinois squad coming off a 5-7 record. Bill Cubit has shaken up his staff in hopes of impressing the administration with a good 2016. [ MORE: Get all of Tom Dienhart’s Big Ten spring football coverage ] Ex-Illinois signal-caller Nathan Scheelhaase will coach running backs; former Illini quarterback Jeff Hecklinski has been tabbed to coach tight ends and special teams; ex-Illinois o-line coach A.J. Ricker is back to reprise his role. Co-defensive coordinator Tim Banks has left, with Mike Phair taking over sole coordinator duties after sharing

Watch Michigan WR Amara Darboh make another highlight catch

Amara Darboh did it in a game, so certainly he’d have no trouble doing it in practice. The Michigan wide receiver who dropped jaws with his Odell Beckham Jr.-like catch last fall vs. BYU is at it again. This time, it came vs. air in the team practice facility; nevertheless, the leaping-full-extension-one-handed catch was impressive. The most impressive part of the video might be the ease with which Darboh hauled it in. It isn’t that easy, folks. Watch the catch on a pass from Wilton Speight in the video above. *** If you, somehow, missed the aforementioned catch vs. BYU,

Big Ten links: Nothing wrong about spring football drills in Florida

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is taking his football team down south for spring practices, and it's causing a bit of a stir. Also, we've got a few more recruiting updates from a variety of Big Ten football teams. And could a really fast Big Ten football player win a really big prize at the upcoming NFL Combine? Dive into Wednesday's Big Ten headlines.

Rasheed Sulaimon throws down huge dunk vs. Bowie State

We have a new finalist for “Big Ten Dunk of the Year” honors, and it came in Tuesday night’s Maryland vs. Bowie State game on BTN. Late in the first half, with Maryland holding onto a 38-26 lead, Rasheed Sulaimon drove to the basket and threw down a huge one-handed dunk in the face of a Bowie State defender. Check out the highlight play in the video at the top of this post. Sulaimon has had some outstanding plays this season since transferring from Duke, but this one takes the cake. You can tell by the home crowd reaction that

SEC trying to prevent Michigan from spring break practices

(AP) The Southeastern Conference is asking for a rule preventing football teams from holding practices during spring break. [ MORE: Get more coverage at FOXSports.com ] The move comes nearly a week after Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said on national signing day that the Wolverines would practice in Florida over spring break starting later this month. SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said Tuesday that ”intentionally public and prominent” decision seems to be a move in ”the wrong direction” amid the talk about easing time demands on athletes. CBSSports.com first reported the SEC’s request presented to the new NCAA Football Oversight Committee,

BTN's Shelley Till: Banham wants to be 'the best player on the floor'

We often overuse the word “greatness” in sports. You don’t just roll out of bed one day and become great; greatness is cultivated over time through hard work. In the case of Minnesota’s women’s basketball player Rachel Banham, greatness has arrived. I chatted with Banham after her epic 60-point performance at Northwestern, a showing that broke the Big Ten women’s basketball single-game scoring record, tied the NCAA one, and had the basketball world buzzing this weekend. [ MORE: Kobe Bryant tweets his congratulations to Banham ] The last time a Division I women’s basketball player scored 60 in a game? It was

Kobe Bryant congratulates Rachel Banham on 60-point game

What a few days for Rachel Banham. Two days after pouring in a Big Ten women’s single-game record and NCAA-tying 60 points (watch all of them) in a double overtime victory Sunday at Northwestern, the Minnesota star got a Twitter shout-out from her favorite player, Kobe Bryant, who is no stranger to reaching the 60-point plateau. The tweet happened early Tuesday afternoon, and Banham couldn’t believe it when she saw it in her timeline. BTN’s Lisa Byington asked Banham about Bryant in a “B1G Women’s Sports Report” interview Monday night, and playfully mentioned that the NBA star, an active Twitter

Bennie Fowler gives 2-point conversion ball to Peyton Manning

Former Michigan State wide receiver Bennie Fowler didn’t register an official catch in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday night, but he’ll likely be on the receiving end of future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning’s final NFL pass. [ MORE: Here’s how Big Ten names fared in Super Bowl 50 ] Confused? Don’t be. Fowler caught the two-point conversion that gave Denver a 14-point lead in the final minutes of its 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers at Levi’s Stadium. But, for whatever reason, two-point conversion attempts don’t count in the official stats. Still, everyone knows the play happened. Fowler certainly
